Home For The Holidays & Homes for Animals
A new home for the holidays gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling, especially when you consider that the owners are selling the home to support and pursue a passion dear to their heart which is the Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Here’s your opportunity to not only buy a beautiful bluff home at 5316 Calumet Avenue in Bird Rock La Jolla, it’s also your opportunity to feel good by assisting with the support of the Oahu SPCA. Stephanie and David Ryan are the current owners of the home and Stephanie is the founder and president of the Oahu SPCA, an animal protection organization. Founded in July 2009, the Oahu SPCA is the oldest and largest animal shelter in the state with a no-kill philosophy. The shelter’s new facility has a capacity of 400 animals and currently rescues about 2,000 animals a year. “We started out rescuing about 1,200 a year, but by our third year now, this past year, we were up to approximately 2,000,” Stephanie said. “Indicative of the growing population of unwanted animals on Oahu, in the past couple months, there were times when we had taken in about 45 puppies per week.” “We feel that the seller’s motivation of the home sale makes the home even more compelling for buyers,” said Maxine and Marti Gellens, listing agents of the property.
The 4 bedroom, 4 bath 3,962 square feet home for sale rests on the bluff in the desirable neighborhood of Bird Rock La Jolla. Enjoy ever-changing views of scenic coastline, vibrant wildlife, whitewater, ocean and glorious sunsets from this Island Contemporary oceanfront home which epitomizes indoor/outdoor living with its expansive oceanfront patio and resistance pool and spa. It was expertly crafted with exotic Bubinga wood flooring, Venetian plastered walls, imported Murano glass light fixtures, custom mahogany doors and windows, as well as master crafted wrought iron railings created by a renowned Napa Valley artist. It’s offered at $6,998,000.
