“You are going to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so… get going!”
That quote from “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Theodor Seuss Geisel – aka the great Dr. Seuss — is fitting, given that his sprawling California estate has hit the market for the first time in nearly 75 years.
Located in La Jolla, is the home where Dr. Seuss conceived the whimsical worlds of “The Grinch” and “The Cat in the Hat”, owned for the past few years by the University of California San Diego.
The property was donated to the university in 2019 by the late wife of Dr. Seuss, Audrey Stone Diamond.
Proceeds from the sale are expected to go to the UC San Diego Foundation’s newly established Geisel Fund to be used for campus projects determined by the university chancellor, a spokesperson said.
Consisting of four lots totaling more than 4 acres, the private, hillside property offers 270-degree views of the ocean, coastline and mountains of Southern California, the listing explains.
