This Mesa home located on La Jolla Drive is a prime example of exceptional modern architecture. Steps to the Mesa Lane beach and the Wilcox (Douglas Preserve) property, this home is hand crafted with the desire to mold light, space and texture into a design which both wows the senses and redefines quality of life. La Jolla Drive was completed in 2004 by Architect David VanHoy AIA.
The existing house, built in 1973, was approximately 1200 sq. ft. with a small carport. The remodel included a 340 sq. ft. addition, a new 2-car garage, a new entry and living room addition with higher ceilings to capture views of the mountains and expand the spatial dynamic of the modest sized home.
The House was remodeled throughout with the creation of new master suite and bath with oversized cement plaster shower open to the garden. Green attributes include bamboo flooring, low VOC paints and finishes, dual-glazing on windows and sliders and passive solar design elements using large roof overhangs and expanses of north-facing glass. This is an incredible look out how modern architecture does not have to be large to live large.
