Via Lotta Living comes word that a historic cottage designed by William Sterling Hebbard and Irving J. Gill, adjacent to San Diego's Balboa Park, is now up for sale. Known as the Teats Cottage, the Prairie-style house was built in 1905 for Katherine Teats, the domestic partner of prominent San Diego socialite Alice Lee. Originally part of a compound with three residences sharing a garden designed by noted botanist/landscape architect Kate Sessions, the 2,751-square-foot cottage features three bedrooms, three and a half baths, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a two-car garage. Sited on a .24-acre lot, the property, which the listing notes is "partially restored/not completed," is asking $1.395 million.
