We repeat, the seller is asking $20 million American dollars, but according to the listing he will accept offers as low as $17 million. What do you get for that? 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, but also the rare ocean front location and a bit of a pedigree. The home, known as the Robert Driver Residence was designed by architect Russell Forester, AIA. Mr. Forester is renowned for designing many mid-century modern homes around San Diego but may be more well known for designing the first Jack in the Box restaurant, and then dozens thereafter. From the Modern San Diego web site: "Russell was among the first wave of practicing architects to push Mies Van Der Rohe's brand of steel & glass modernism on commercial and residential clients across San Diego. From his La Jolla practice Mr. Forester is credited with many high profile commissions for local art patrons Lynn and Danah Fayman as well as restaurateurs like Bob Peterson. For Peterson (Foodmaker CEO), Russell put Mieisian modernism into pop culture by designing the first Jack in the Box restaurant in 1951."
