In this issue we will transport you room-by-room, from front door to back gate, through this luxury San Diego home, detailing all of the amenities and unique design features offered by this magnificent property and exploring current décor trends and cutting edge products. For those in the market, this will inform you in your search and for those simply looking for ideas to improve your current residence, it will inspire. Either way you won’t want to miss a single PREMIER Open House.
Ultimate Oceanfront Retreat. California Coastal Chic. Paradise Found. These words only scratch the surface of this Trophy Estate that will redefine what it means to be the best. Here, the stunning allure of the ocean combines with the aesthetic beauty of the home in an unprecedented integration of nature’s grandeur and man’s superb workmanship.
Recently completed on an incredible 1.5 acre Carlsbad site with 166 feet of ocean frontage, every impeccable detail of the 10,000 square feet of living space was conceived and executed to offer an artistic expression and even visceral experience in reverence to the magnificent location.
The tour begins through massive wooden gates surrounded by lush Hawaiian inspired landscaping that covers the property. A fountain at the center of the circular drive starts the thematic ocean journey with flaming lava rocks floating above light reflecting geodes suggesting the shimmer of fish’s scales.
Artistically-sculpted, towering wooden doors, copper clad and lacquered to respond to the salty sea air, and inlaid with blue-white geode in the impression of two whales touching—a stirring symbol of the grace of the sea and the elegance of the home. A fitting introduction to a majestic living room banked by floor to ceiling windows, going 30 feet high, filled with one of the most stunning views in Southern California. The interior details are no less enthralling. Antiqued Douglas fir exposed beam ceiling meets a towering Sonora Gold stone fireplace. Mirroring the fireplace is another soaring wall of stone and wood with art niche displaying a dry wood sculpture that calls to mind driftwood while the impeccable décor in blues and whites reflect the ocean and whitewater break outside.
All public spaces have been carefully positioned to experience headland ocean views, making the grand Pacific the star of a show that is supported with an all-star cast of materials and design choices: tumbled travertine flooring, Vantage controlled lighting, automated window coverings, designer Rocky Mountain Hardware, hand-pounded wrought iron railings with agate stone detail, venetian plaster in the bedrooms, Beijing slate patios, antique alder cabinetry, exposed beam ceilings, the list goes on forever. In the gourmet kitchen, with delicious Ligino Stone counters, beautiful details like basket weaved copper door insets mirror the copper in the exterior doors. Dual master suites have every amenity imaginable including dream worthy oversized custom closets.
The home has both work and play fully covered. A world-class entertainment wing provides a dedicated poker room and media room with theater seating for 12 as well as a sit down bar. The commanding 600 square foot office, overlooking the surf break with sweeping views to La Jolla, features technology to cast you anywhere in the world with the rock of the chair and instantaneously connect you to up-to-the moment news, sports and more via the state of the art 85-inch flatscreen with 4 screen separation.
Not one, but six oceanfront patios offer a variety of ways to enjoy paradise. Soak up the sun with family, enjoy a secluded space for quiet meditation, relax in the shade and take in the view, or cook a favorite gourmet meal in the outdoor kitchen with room to entertain 5 or 50.
The guest home is, of course, no less spectacular. As Doug Harwood of the Harwood Group, the listing agent, describes it, “The guest house is better than any 5-star hotel. You will seriously have to enforce a check out date for your guests or they will stay forever.”
It is the perfect mélange of hi-tech and hi-luxury, laid-back California cool and refined elegance, wide open spaces and incredible privacy and security, all serving in appreciation of the incredible natural beauty of the location, that elevate this exquisite estate to the pinnacle of the best there is to offer. Paradise Found.
This home is offered for sale at $29,000,000
