Designed in 1949 by John Lloyd Wright, son of famed Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, 1820 Neale Street presents a unique opportunity to own a piece of San Diego architectural history. Guided by his father’s approach to organic architecture, John was partial towards materials that were compatible with the climate and relied on the traditional ranch and mission construction that was popular in the area. As a result, natural wood is used liberally. What is clearly evident with this particular property, is his precise attention to detail and design of the interior spaces.
“The Mooney Residence is an excellent representation of John Lloyd Wright’s exemplary design style, as well as the artistic influence of his father,” says Matthew Hernholm, of the Hernholm Group at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty who is representing the seller. “The discreet curb appeal coupled with the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces are attributes that potential buyers will likely find appealing.
Tucked into the surrounding landscape, this single level home is arranged around two outdoor spaces. Stepping inside this iconic home, architectural buffs will notice how Wright incorporated his father’s Usonian and Prairie style. The open floor plan of the home is a true testament to John Lloyd’s Wright vision of the ideal home. The galley kitchen and dining area, as well as the family room, open to a private brick courtyard which remains the perfect setting for entertaining. Redwood interior walls, vaulted ribbed ceilings, and strategically placed windows are a few highlights of the interior.
