Do you love the beach?  Would you be OK with these Pacific Ocean white water views? What if you could turn around and see this view to the East? These two views go together from the same, one-of-a-kind, vacant lot.  It is one of the few remaining parcels undeveloped Del Mar real estate.  With about 16,215 usuable sqft of lot space, it is a prime candidate for a multi-million dollar dream home. The lot across the street (toward the ocean, with only the ocean view), sold for $2,200,000 in 2000.  What do you think the City of Del Mar should be able to get for this lot?

Just across the street from St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Del Mar, California, is the Rock Haus. I have never heard of the Rock Haus before, but whomever owns the place has a huge, monster, gigantic sign at the right front corner of the property telling the world that this is, indeed, the Rock Haus. I always think of Del Mar as a sleepy yet upper class city, so this sign just seemed so out of place, especially since it was at the entrance to a residential neighborhood right at the edge of downtown Del Mar:   The house itself was interesting yet appeared to be lacking in maintenance. I don't know whether this is a commercial building or a residential building, but here are three more pictures: ♫♪♫♫♪♫ If you're looking for a great real estate agent in San Diego, well,let me Google one ...

My Claude Debussy chamber music concert last night was held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Del Mar, California. This is a very beautiful church with everything made out of wood. I'm trying to find out more about the church. All I know so far is that it was built around 1930 and was designed "by the architect known for redwood bungalows and various Balboa Park buildings," which doesn't tell me anything. Here are a few pictures:   ♫♪♫♫♪♫ If you're looking for a great real estate agent in San Diego, well,let me Google one for you. I'm available 24/7, so feel free to contact me by phone or email.
