Loch Crane Residence III / Loch Crane


This largely untouched hexagonal home in San Diego’s affluent beach side community of La Jolla boasts an open plan, multiple levels, view-framing windows, and an abundance of unique architectural details. Built in 1964 as a personal residence by architect Loch Crane, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and his Taliesin fellowship program, the 3,134-square-foot three-bedroom also features Japanese influences, which can be seen in the wood panelling and the clean lines throughout.

Mezzanines, porches, and gangways create vistas inside and outside the property, while plenty of built-in furniture like seating, shelves, and storage allow for even more efficient use of the geometric space. Though the house could use a little touching up — especially the carpeted floors — the tiled kitchen with gorgeous cabinetry, as well as the period-specific bathrooms should be retained as much as possible in order to maintain the time capsule’s authenticity. Located at 5950 Avenida Chamnez, it’s asking $3,200,000 — via Curbed
