Two-level Penthouse with southwest view of Downtown San Diego, Point Loma, San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, and Mexico beyond. 

By Thomas Shess
--It’s hard to call a $3.7 million home in San Diego a bargain, but when you stand on the penthouse terrace of Unit #7 at Park Laurel Condominiums, 5th and Laurel Streets, to gaze at the 300-degree panoramas of Downtown San Diego Bay, the Harbor and Balboa Park you might understand why this twin-level penthouse is worth every penny.

Park Laurel was developed by Robert Lawrence and CLB Partners, Dallas in 2003. Units range in size from 2,600 to 5,200 square feet. 

Penthouses don’t often come with grassy front yards or historic gardens, but in this case, Unit #7 has 1,200 acres of pristine Balboa Park, a world-class city park designed by the same landscape company (Olmstead Brothers) as Central Park in New York City just across the street. 

And, future development is no possible as no one will block your view on three sides. But Unit #7 doesn’t make one feel squeezed in with 4,700 square feet of living space on two levels including 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and south-facing (sunny) terraces. 

And, the property has direct elevator access without common hallways, plus 24 hr. concierge, pool, spa, and fitness center. And, your neighbor across the street is one of the region’s finest restaurants: Bertrand’s at Mr. A’s.
