Designated as Chula Vista Historic Site No. 44, The Jennie MacDonald House, located just 15 minutes southeast of downtown San Diego in the city of Chula Vista, has been listed for sale by San Diego real estate agency City Consulting Group. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home, offered at $649,000, is one of the last surviving historic properties still on its original site.

Celebrated as a historic treasure that has received local notoriety for its spectacular architecture and pristine restoration, this home has been featured in the San Diego Historical Society’s Designer Showcase of 1986, Chula Vista Historic Home Tour of 2002, and the May 1986 and May 2002 issues of San Diego Home/Garden magazine.

Built in 1888, this unique residence has maintained its historic integrity with a hipped and gabled roof, intricate carved brackets, columned front porch, boxed bay windows, detailed moldings and original wood floors. Many significant improvements have been made to the house over the years to provide modern functionality.

Measuring 2,062 square feet and sitting on over a one-third acre lot, this home offers substantial property tax savings under the Mills Act, which is granted to homes with historic designation. In near original condition, the Jennie MacDonald House is designated as a Chula Vista Historic Site.

The current owners are active community members who sit on the board of the Friends of Chula Vista Library and support the Chula Vista Heritage Museum. Having purchased the home in 1996, they have honored their belief that when you take on an old home, you are its custodian and must be sensitive to preserving its integrity.
