La Jolla, CA, April 4, 2016 ( – On quaint and private cul-de-sac in La Jolla sits a tranquil oasis, once the home Martha W. Longnecker-Roth, a woman whose lifelong devotion to art led to the creation of the iconic Mingei International Museum. Martha’s passionate pursuit of her craft took her around the world, most notably Japan where years later in 2003 she would be recognized by the Emperor with the “Order of the Rising Sun” for the ongoing contributions to transcultural artistic understanding.

The home is a true reflection of the artistic spirit that resided in Mrs. Longnecker-Roth and the influences that played a pivotal role in her rich life. Zen-like tranquility is abundant throughout the spacious 4,200 square foot estate, where light and positive energy permeates both inside and outside. This variation of a Mid-century modern home features 5 bedrooms, 6 baths over 2 levels, with a backyard complete with a large pool.

“Client events are fundamental when selling a unique property. When you get a chance to spend time in home and experience the lifestyle it offers, a connection can be made”

With a new vision and proven track record for marketing distinctive coastal properties, Anderson White & Associates has teamed with local builder and designer Ryan Farhood to promote the property to a local audience, while simultaneously accessing the Sotheby’s International Realty’s global marketing channels; The New York Times, Architectural Digest and the Wall St Journal.

In addition to the creation of high quality HD property and community videos, Anderson White & Associates will deploy more traditional marketing tactics to promote the property.

All proceeds from the sale of home will be endowed to University of California San Diego.
