Lovely Mid Century Home With Spacious Patio, Yard, Views and Bonus Cat

Beautiful mid century 3 bd/2 bath home in San Diego with spacious patio, wood floors throughout, stainless appliances, lovely views and charming neighborhood. You'll be hanging out with our mellow and snuggly tabby cat Hans.

The house sits on a generous lot and the backyard includes several citrus trees, avocado trees, and succulents. The patio spans the width of the house and is perfect for barbecues and guests, warm summer evenings or sitting with a good book in the afternoon sun. Two sets of sliding glass doors open up onto the back patio, so there’s a nice indoor/outdoor flow throughout the house.

The kitchen includes stainless appliances, gas range, microwave, newer dishwasher. The washer and dryer are new, and all of the appliances are rated as energy and water efficient.

It’s in walking distance to grocery stores, coffee shop, restaurants and more. From the living room, you get a lovely view across the city and we love watching sunsets above the palm trees from the dining room table. From the backyard, you can spot the ocean and Coronado Island. Neighbors are friendly, but the yard is also very private.

The master bedroom has an attached bath, large closet, modern barn doors, and sliding doors that open onto the back patio. The second bedroom is spacious and includes a twin bed (this could be converted into two twin bunk beds) and a crib. The third bedroom serves as our guest room/office and includes a king trundle bed with high-quality memory foam mattress. There’s also a two person desk, and sliding doors that open onto the patio. We enjoy stepping out onto the shaded patio with our laptops to work/drink coffee in the mornings from here.

There is off-street parking in the driveway, internet, and yard service. Some utilities are paid by you, except a portion of the water bill. Please note that we don’t have a TV, but we will gladly set you up with outdoor projector capabilities if you want to watch movies on the patio.

Also, there is central AC.

This home is close to San Diego State University, University of San Diego, San Diego City College and relatively close to UCSD.

We’re simply hoping to cover a portion of our mortgage and thus are asking $2450, which is discounted to account for cat care responsibilities. You'll be hanging out with our sweet tabby cat Hans. He's an indoor/outdoor kitty. You'll need to feed him and scoop his kitty box every couple of days, but overall he's pretty low maintenance.

About Me
Greetings! Our small family consists of Thomas, an assistant professor in the Communication Department at UCSD, Amanda a journalist and instructor at UCSD, two young boys and one sleepy cat. Thomas is from Austria so we're a bilingual family, and we expect to spend long stretches away from our San Diego home visiting family and conducting research. We're an active family; we love biking and hiking, exploring the beaches and canyons here in Southern California, and spending time with family. We're excited to open our home up to folks in the academic community so you, too can enjoy this lovely place!
