Classic Beachfront Home in La Jolla Lists for $12.5 Million
One of the first homes built in Barber Tract boasts a 90-year history
Remodeled and expanded over the years, the two-story property aptly coined “Casa del Lido” (Home on the Beach), has served as a gracious venue for entertaining dignitaries such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Jonas Salk along with other Noble Prize-winning academics from around the world.

A shady canopy of mature trees, landscaping, flowers, verdant green lawns and a pool area greet you as you enter the property. Entrance to the home is through a walled, lushly planted garden with a fish pond, fountain and swimming pool and the gardens continue wrapping around the north and south sides of the home. The backyard holds a private deck and lawn area where the beach and ocean views can be thoroughly enjoyed.
Dr. Revelle, who was one of the first scientists to recognize the dangerous global warming effects of rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, won numerous awards in recognition of his vast scientific research, which includes a Presidential appointment by John F. Kennedy and the National Medal of Science from President George W. Bush. He died in 1991, leaving a prestigious body of scientific work as his legacy to the world.
