Owners of the 1928 Esther B. Morrison/Henry Barkey House in La Jolla, the Lanes restored and rehabilitated this Monterey-style home with great care. Additions - a new kitchen, new bedrooms, a family room and study - are harmonious with the historic house. The original living and dining room were renovated. Extensive measures were taken to reinforce prominent design features, such as the front balcony, and to fabricate windows and doors for the addition that match the originals. A Batchelder tile hearth and original staircase with an iron railing were restored. Because a landscape is an important historic feature to a home, mature trees were also preserved when the yard was relandscaped.
