Ullrich. Situated on flat, quarter-acre, corner lot, this timeless English Tudor home is conveniently located just one block from Marine Street beach and a short walk to all of amenities of La Jolla’s Village. Enjoy original details throughout, including juliette balconies, masonry fireplaces, built-in cabinetry, window seats, hardwood floors, and leaded mullioned windows with clear and stained glass that open to admire the ocean views that adorn the 2nd and 3rd levels, or to feel the ocean breeze and listen to the waves as you fall asleep. The spacious main home features 5 en-suite bedrooms plus 3 optional bedrooms that could serve as offices, bonus space, or a home gym – additionally, the property features a detached 1BR/1BA studio apartment/ADU above the detached garage with its own kitchenette and private entry! Enjoy indoor-outdoor living and entertaining in either of the home’s two grand living spaces – the original formal living room with cathedral vaulted ceilings or the sprawling informal living room with soaring, two-story ceilings and a breathtaking fireplace inspired by Yosemite’s Ahwahnee Lodge – which both feature walls of French doors that open to backyard with outdoor living and dining spaces, plus plenty of space for the next owners to add an in-ground pool! Widely admired for its striking architectural beauty and manicured landscaping with idyllic gardens and hedged privacy fencing, this prized property is affectionally called “The Monkey House” by locals for the original sculpture that dons the front gable with two monkeys holding the Ullrich crest. The setting for many weddings, 4th of July parades, holiday parties, philanthropic events, and La Jolla Secret Garden Tours throughout the years, this beloved home is ready to serve as the backdrop for future memories for its next deserving owners!
