Description

Welcome to Kneale Park—a historic estate that is the only one of its stature available in the idyllic University Heights. This Spanish Colonial revival home offers amenities galore, including breathtaking daytime coastal views and a show of bay fireworks at night. The stately 5-bed/3-bath home, built in 1905 by construction magnate Thomas Kneale, boasts original hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, historic light fixtures, and large, picturesque windows. The gourmet kitchen features SS appliances and easy access to sunroom, laundry, BBQ, and wine cellar. The foyer opens to spacious dining, living and family rooms. A large and luxurious master suite features an oversized bathroom, with stone shower with body sprays and a Roman soaking tub. Remodeled, custom-finished closets in all bedrooms and casita attic space offer ample storage. Situated on .54 acres, this walled, private compound is perfect for entertaining with its ample yard and patios, in-ground heated pool and spa, a waterfall koi pond, herb and rose gardens, fruit trees, aviary, play structure, and parking for multiple cars and RV/boat. A 1-bed/1-bath apartment above the front 4-car garage, and the Spanish casita, with a second 3-car garage and attached home office/gym space, offer the potential for rental income, guest accommodations and work-from-home. The location of a property of this size and beauty is unmatched. It’s walking distance to restaurants, shops, parks and is ten minutes from downtown, the airport, and Balboa Park/Zoo. It’s a rare find in urban San Diego and it won’t last! The first floor offers a large living room with bonus area and huge bay windows with newly installed window coverings. A library/computer room provides a place to relax and read, do work, or crafts. A first-floor bedroom with walk-in closet offers convenient sleeping quarters or another home office space. The glassed-in sunroom will quickly become your favorite place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as you great the day! Three additional second floor bedrooms with ceiling fans, large double pain windows and custom finished walk-in closets provide plenty of flexibility for children, guests, and work/play spaces. Upgraded electrical panel, lined pipes, a newer roof (2009), geological survey, central heat and air, and Cat5 wiring make this home move-in ready. A one bedroom “granny flat” with private entrance, above the front 4-car garage (650 sqft), is perfect to generate rental income or to house a live-in nanny or relative. In 2015 the back property structures were remodeled to include a spacious home office (255 sqft.), 3-car garage, gorgeous 1- bedroom Spanish casita/pool house with full kitchen (300sqft), and large attic storage space (350sqft.). You won’t find another home like this, located in such a convenient area! West University Heights/Mission Cliffs offers easy walking to restaurants and shops on Park Blvd., while being nestled in on a quiet horse-shoe street. Situated ten minutes to downtown and the airport, ten minutes to the zoo and near highly-rate Birney Elementary and several private schools. You won’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime home. This property historically has only been available every 25-30 years. Now is your chance! Simran’s Edit of our description This historic and private compound is the only one of it’s stature available in the idyllic University Heights and the surrounding neighborhoods.
