Property Description

Featured on the La Mesa Historic Home Tour, this classic mid-century modern home was custom built for Elmer Drew, the founder of Drew Ford, by George Eckel, who designed and built many of the Mt. Helix ranch-style homes in and around the area. Fondly known as the Drew House, this home has everything you could want in a hilltop La Mesa home. Sitting at the highest point on the lot with views of Mt. Helix and surrounding neighborhoods, the home includes 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a large family room, dining room, living room, dining nook, remodeled kitchen -- all opening onto a Catalina pool area that is the focal point of the property and perfect for entertaining or relaxing. Original features of the house include a large stone chimney with fireplaces on the main and upper levels, custom sound system with speakers throughout the house, unique counter system with heat lamps and pull-down doors between kitchen and dining room for serving food, and the built-in cabinets in the dining room and elsewhere. The front door was designed and built by local artist James Hubbell. See supplemental Many upgrades include a remodeled the kitchen that is truly one of a kind. Beautifully visioned chef-style island wraps around the Wolf range framed with custom gray cabinetry that has Butcher block countertops. Replaced doors on either side of the kitchen with glass and Dutch doors, repurposed a crawl space on the tuck-under garage as a wine cellar, replaced wall coverings and flooring, and upgraded with vintage fixtures to restore the house to its mid-century roots. Outside the house, upgraded landscaping along the street with a vineyard (recently featured on the front page of the California Garden magazine). Sit in the pergola made from 125-year-old Indonesian wood and enjoy the evening breezes that float in from the coast. Landscaping is lush and mature with native plantings, above ground hot-tub in the backyard and cook your own pizza in an earth pizza oven outside of the kitchen. Finally, enjoy low power bills with a paid for solar system installed. Close to all, including a short walk downhill to the Village of La Mesa for Oktoberfest, Holidays in La Mesa, restaurants, breweries on Commercial Street and weekly Farmers Market. Near I-8, SR125, SR94, SDSU, a quick trip downtown or the beach. Equipment: Dryer, Washer Sewer: Sewer Connected Topography: GSL
