Unique property in Downtown San Diego. This free standing rowhome is zoned for live work and features three levels of living space, double height ceilings, an attached garage, and updated kitchen. NO mandatory HOA fees! Most residents pay an optional $100 a quarter. The master retreat is usually a loft space in these units, the owner fully enclosed the master to ensure privacy for the future owner. Perfect space to live and work while avoiding expensive commercial real estate rents. See supp. remarks., Property was designed by architect Kevin DeFritas. The following is text from his website with regard to the project "The 17 rowhomes were created by assembling 217 tilt-up concrete panels on individual micro-parcels with only three inches of airspace separating each home. Each rowhouse at only 16-4' wide plus the airspace, allows for three single family homes to fit on a City standard 504 wide parcel, thus tripling the density to 42 units/acre. The airspace separation allows for a single family fee-simple" classification, thus no H.O.A.'s is needed. New methods for pre-casting, transporting, and setting the over-sized panels were developed to meet the design and density requirements of this project. This highly innovative solution proved to be a very fast construction method and cost effective in addition to significantly reducing sound transmission between homes, potential damage from water intrusion, termites, and mold. The rowhomes were designed to be energy misers, achieving and far surpassing the stringent "Energy Star designation. rating 42% more efficient than State energy standards. Double height spaces. open floor plans and strategically located Low-E glazed operable windows were designed to take full advantage of natural day-lighting and consistent cooling bay breezes ultimately eliminating the need for an air conditioning system. The high mass walls significantly balanced internal temperatures providing thermal comfort while also mitigating noise transmission from the busy street as well as between units. Overall, this forward-looking project models a viable residential design strategy which begins to answer issues such as increasing urban density, cultivation of neighborhoods, natural resource conservation, and environmental sustain-ability without sacrificing a modern design aesthetic."
