For eight years, Renae Farley and her husband, Richard Pommer, spent weekends looking for their forever home, a place that was conducive to entertaining and had a downstairs master suite. They were thinking about building a home when Pommer was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He died in January 2018. Out of habit, Farley continued the house hunt for a while, but became frustrated and decided to drop the quest. As she was unsubscribing from a real estate site, a house caught her eye.
The home, in a quiet La Costa neighborhood abutting the golf course, fit her requirements. So she decided to take a look.
When Farley stepped inside the 2,300-square-foot home, she knew. “I bought it on the spot,” she said. “It had perfect bones and perfect feng shui.”
