A Little Bit of La Jolla Real Estate History!

La Jolla Real EstateA luxury La Jolla home once owned by a famous jockey and that served as a stage for old-school Hollywood celebrities has been listed for $14.9 million. The 10,000-square-foot house, at 6019 Avenida Cresta, belonged to Billy Pearson, who won hundreds of races around the world and befriended Tinseltown stars including one of his closest friends, director John Huston. Pearson began a love of art after his retirement and went on to win two game shows “The $64,000 Question and The $64,000 Challenge” in 1956. He assembled an extensive art collection and in later life became a dealer in pre-Columbian art.
