When published nationally as the ‘Electri-Living Home for Tomorrow’ in 1958, this amazing Del Cerro visual landmark pushed the envelope on both design and technology. Lovingly restored, and retaining many of the original features while adding a number of contemporary luxuries (including gas appliances) this home perfectly blends vintage appeal with modern comfort. Come experience how the interior spaces engage the landscape through walls of glass as natural light bathes the kitchen, living and family rooms.Designed by Paderewski, Mitchell & Dean Architects and built by Jackson & Scott, San Diego’s Electri-Living home was one of a dozen high-tech homes across the United States. Each project was a partnership between local vendors and national manufacturers showcasing the latest in electrical technologies and appliances for 1957-58. Featured nationally in Living for Young Homemakers Magazine, upon its completion thousands of people lined-up to tour the home before it was sold to its first owner. Also, recognized as a ‘Gold Medallion’ home by San Diego Gas & Electric at the time, this home has a very unique history to go along with its trailblazing design. Recent work has included rebuilding the front deck and stairway, a number of kitchen improvements including counters and backsplash, cabinetry refacing, new appliances and low-maintenance landscaping. When published, the design was “the perfect marriage of site and house” that “hugs the ground while holding its head high in the air.” From its unique siting, and ideal floorpan for indoor-outdoor living, the Electri-Living home is set for decades of enjoyment ahead.
