The Hickory House and Sweet Retreats

The House

This home was designed by renowned architect Wolf Kalber. He has designed some of the most luxurious homes in the country and has been featured in many magazines and other publications. One of his homes, the $16,000,000 Martini House, was featured in San Diego Home/Garden magazine. Click on the picture to the right to read about the house and amazing architect!

This home is two homes in one with two master bedrooms and two full kitchens. There is a common door between the two areas of the house that can be locked for privacy.

One section of the home has a huge, upstairs master bedroom with views of the bay and backyard. Below this bedroom is a game room perfect for family gatherings and a sleeping area for children. A full kitchen and huge bathroom round out this side of the home.

The other section of the home has a large, fully equipped kitchen, living room, huge family room with cathedral ceilings and a large nautical themed fireplace. A master bedroom with views of the backyard and master bath with a dual vanity round out the bottom floor. The upstairs of this home has two more bedrooms and another large bathroom with dual sinks and ocean views.

There is a built in intercom system so you can communicate to others wherever they may be in the home.

The Backyard

If you didn't feel like you were in a tropical oasis, you will as soon as you walk into this backyard. The first thing that will catch your eye is the 25 foot waterfall with pond as you look across the yard. You can't help but notice the towering palms and bird of paradise trees that adorn the perimeter of the yard or the gorgeous flagstone around the pond and in the middle of the courtyard. A secluded hot tub is available for relaxing after a day of sightseeing or after making a dinner on the large BBQ.

Talk a walk to the outdoor upstairs area where you can sit and relax in several areas including the sun deck where you can have a drink while watching sunsets over the bay.

During those rare cool nights, enjoy the heat of the fire pit in the middle of the courtyard.

Plenty of seating will ensure that all of your guests are comfortable.

If you are lucky, you may get to meet the two resident hummingbirds that live just outside the family room door.
