New, 25 comments


Location: 6019 Avenida Cresta
Price: $12,900,000
Size: 6 beds, 10 baths, 10,000 sq.ft.

Packed to the gills with patterned stuff that makes us go cross eyed, this historic La Jolla property was inspired by "La Fenice" opera house in Venice, Italy. We don't see the resemblance. Per the listing, the home which is also named La Fenice (now we see the resemblance) was recently doubled in size and sits on a double lot in the Lower Hermosa neighborhood -- that's down the road from where Mitt Romney lives! Per the listing, the home was originally designed in 1929 by famed local architect Thomas Shepherd whose work can be seen around La Jolla. The home has recently been reduced by $2 million.
