Steeped in history & remarkably well preserved, with few alterations, Rose House is one of the last surviving homes of its era and perhaps the last of San Diego’s Pioneer style architecture. The shiplap siding & interior four-panel doors were both common in 1860’s era construction. This simple architectural style was common before the more ornate Victorian (1870) and Queen Anne (1880) styles.
Completely gutted and renovated one bedroom attached Granny flat, fits queen size bed. Stunning, brand new interior from ceilings to floorboards.
The home features a simple, one-room-wide layout. The first floor contains the living room, dining room (the original kitchen), a kitchen/bathroom addition and an attached granny flat. The second floor features the original spacious bedroom and office/nursery. The living room displays a decorative linoleum inlay, applied over well-preserved wood flooring. Replaced all electrical wiring & added new sockets, light fixtures & circuit breaker box in 2003. Replaced all plumbing to include: main sewer line, copper pipes, PVC sewer pipes, sinks, tub & shower pipes in 2000. Repaired/replaced all 3 front porches in 2003.
Property boasts an extra-large lot, 5506m sq ft, with the home set back unusually far from the sidewalk. This may indicate the home was first to be placed on this block, before setbacks were established. beautiful, low maintenance native landscaping; outdoor shower with hot and cold running water.
