There’s nothing like views of the setting sun punctuating the ocean horizon. But that’s just one of the many attributes of a recently constructed compound sited on an acre of ocean bluff in San Diego County’s La Jolla Farms.
A gated and secured entrance at the street ensures privacy. The more than 7,500 square feet of living space is on a single level, and the list goes on.
Expanses of glass give a modern, open-air feel to the contemporary estate. A pop-up portion of the roof emphasizes the strong horizontal lines and bathes the interiors in light. The meticulously well-kept courtyard, swimming pool and spa add a resort vibe. Spots of lawn and plantings soften the appearance.
The open-plan great room provides ample space for lounging, dining, watching the big screen or enjoying the fireplace. A center island with bar seating for a half-dozen, a sink and range creates a buffer to the rest of the kitchen, outfitted with white counters, stainless-steel appliances and wood cabinetry.
The glass-sided great room looks both outward to the ocean and inland toward the courtyard pool. A wide walkway on the water side leads down through gardens to an observation deck with a fire pit.
Multi-use rooms ― one with a kitchenette ― can double as guest suites, a home gym or an art studio. Wood accents play well against the white, beige and gray tones used throughout the residence.
There are five bedrooms with slide-away glass walls, seven bathrooms and dual two-car garages on the property. A glass-cornered office nook looks out on the Pacific.
The property is about 10 miles away from San Diego International Airport.
Affluent La Jolla Farms is a seaside neighborhood known for its sandy beaches and world-class surfing at secluded Black’s Beach.
