I grew up in the farthest reaches of North County, right next door to Jamestown Mall, and I can’t tell you how many times I daydreamed about owning this particular house. Seriously. It’s a sleek 50s ranch sitting directly across from the mall’s west entrance, and all I needed to know then (and now) was that it 1) has a swimming pool, 2) backs up to a lake, and 3) sits on a private street surrounded by woods.
I was hooked back in the 80s, and I still love this place today. It’s a total sleeper – kind of plain from the outside, but inside WOW. Light, bright & wide open.
If you’re looking for a unique vintage house with a fun mid-century vibe and LOTS of room to spread out, this could be your private oasis. The inground pool is pretty awesome, especially with the his and hers cabanas. You also get 1.08 acres of land, much of which is fenced, plus four garages, a classic vintage rathskeller and full lake access. All for $142K.
I predict this gem sells quickly…
UPDATE 2/27: Looks like the kitchen got a new countertop…
