The Playhouse" is an iconic landmark on Prices Neck Cove, a picturesque inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. Located on famed Ocean Drive this property once served as a carriage/ boat house to the adjacent estate in a collaborative effort between San Diego Architect, Irving Gill and Frederick Law Olmsted.

At the other end of the great room a fieldstone fireplace anchors the living room creating a cozy atmosphere in colder weather. A second floor master bedroom suite has 18ft. ceilings at their peak, with the accompanying sitting area opening to an enclosed stone patio with a original fountain. The landscaped grounds include a travertine marble surrounded pool/spa area, with a mooring in the Cove..
