About 294 Ocean Ave

The Playhouse" is an iconic landmark on Prices Neck Cove, a picturesque inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. Located on famed Ocean Drive this property was a collaborative effort between San Diego Architect, Irving Gill and Frederick Law Olmsted. The "Playhouse" sits on a majestic oceanfront site. Completely rebuilt, the current owners have kept this property in brand new condition. It reflects the highest specifications, materials and craftsmanship. The interior space includes an enclosed entry addition with a den and 1/2 bath. Once you walk through the original fieldstone arched doorway, you enter into a light filled, open plan kitchen-living-dining area with warm wide plank maple floors and custom mahogany windows and doors. The kitchen has a commercial grade Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf stove, wine refrigerator and a charming pizza oven from Italy. At the other end of the great room a fieldstone fireplace anchors the living room creating a cozy atmosphere in colder weather. A second-floor master bedroom suite has 18ft. ceilings at their peak, a spa like bathroom and boasts amazing south facing views of the cove and Atlantic Ocean beyond. The landscaped grounds include a new pool/spa area with bluestone patio and surround, meticulously crafted stone walls and a deeded mooring in the Cove. There is a detached garage/ guest house includes a separate living room, cedar closet, and two bedrooms with shared bathroom on the second floor. Totally turn-key and ready for summer activities.
