Unbelievable San Diego Home – Would You Live Here?

News | 26th Aug 2012

This home in San Diego has a brick sidewalk that is position in a very well manicured lawn, leading to the front door. There’s a warm, inviting blanket draped over the couch in the home’s living room.

This blue cottage with adorable shingles looks like it makes the perfect family home. However, the house is distinctly different from most homes of its kind—because it hangs off the edge of a UCSD seven-story engineering building. The house has been dubbed the “Fallen Star”, and it was derived from artist Do Ho Suh’s creative interpretation of the out-of-place feeling he experienced when moving to the United States from South Korea.

The home took seven years to build, and weighs almost 70,000 pounds. It cost about $1.4 million to construct, and was recently opened for the public to view. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, visitors can come to the home on “72 Blue Heron Way”. But don’t rely on services like Google Maps or Mapquest to get you there, as the address won’t show up using these e-map systems.

We are so happy Broker Caravan is back and we can preview properties for our clients. It’s also nice to physically see and visit with our agent colleagues. Maxine sold this house many years ago and it was fun to see it again.
