One of the Most Unique Homes in La Jolla

The home was designed and built in 1917 by world traveler Florence Howard. It had many Oriental influences, plus there were more than 300 trees planted on the property. Howard decided to return to the orient, so it was sold to the Haydens in 1922. The Haydens lived there until they died and it was then passed to their daughter, Josephine Nortin in 1962. When she passed on, the children inherited the home.

Josephine Norton lived a life of tremendous fortitude and strength. While living in the Philippines as a young girl, she was taken into a Japanese civilian prisoner-of-war camp in Manila along with her parents. They were held captive for just over three years. Despite that, Josephine had an appreciation for the Orient. She traveled to many countries because her father was a well-known engineer.
