2021 Rodelane San Diego, CA 92103
Mid-Century Modern by architect Lloyd Ruocco on a canyon lot with postcard views to San Diego's big bay & downtown. The 1959 aesthetic of this 3,100 sf, 3 bdrm, 4 bath property is preserved with re-imagined design by architect Marc Tarasuck. New features include: 1st-floor master retreat, infinity edge pool, walls of glass to capture the views, art gallery wall space for collections, and a modern glass cubed garage. Enjoy fabulous indoor-outdoor living in an original Ruocco-Tarasuck designed-home. The floor plan includes the main level with 2 bedrooms, both with ensuite baths. These are currently used as an office / den, and a guest bedroom. The 3rd bathroom on the main floor facilitates pool users, and is located off the dining room & kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors comprise the east facade of the house. This expanse opens to the backyard patio & pool and to the canyon. The downstairs was added as an owner's retreat, with a master suite, spa bath & study indoors, and a jacuzzi spa and private patio outdoors. Revered mid century master architect Lloyd Ruocco designed homes with a nearly imperceptible distinction between indoors & outdoors. He was a pioneer in the development of post-war contemporary architecture in the San Diego area. He worked with architects Richard Requa, Lilian Rice and William Templeton Johnson. Ruocco Park was named for him, located on 3.3-acres at the intersection of West Harbor Drive and Pacific Highway downtown. The property at 2021 Rodelane is a fine example of Ruocco's vision, but the current owner wished to expand the square footage and to update the 1959 structure. Ten years ago, architect Marc Tarasuck created a brand new home, in essence, with all new plumbing, electrical & a forward design that was respectful of the past. That design remains relevant today. The home takes advantage of the canyon locale with primarily-southern views of the Bay, the skyline, and Coronado. The infinity -edge pool is a gem, intended for lap swimming, to refresh, or to admire. The canyon ushers up the ocean breeze, as well as providing a privacy buffer. This modernized mid century includes a whole-house stereo system that conveys intact, Roche Bobois and Ligne Roset beds, and a kitchen with Viking & SubZero appliances.
