Escape to a private, gated coastal retreat high above the pacific where exceptional craftsmanship, and exquisite materials blend harmoniously to create an estate if distinction and refinement. Situated on the largest privately owned oceanfront parcel in San Diego County, this is more than an estate-it is a heritage. Thought by many to be the finest oceanfront property on the West Coast, the home is set against a magnificent backdrop of rugged cliffs, sparkling ocean, and azure skies, much like a flawless diamond in an exquisite setting. Taking advantage of 280-degree views from downtown La Jolla to Dana Point, it is inspiring in its timeless, classic, Mediterranean architecture. A 6-year odyssey of meticulous design and precise execution has resulted in a property utilizing only the finest building materials and antiquities. Examples include 25,000 square feet of limestone chosen from a quarry in the south of France, hand-honned herringbone maple floors inspired by those in the Gettyburg Museum, solid teak exterior doors and windows adorned with hand forged fittings, and Santa Barbara sandstone perimeter walls, to name a few. It is a residence with all the amenities of the fines resort, including a tennis court, racquetball court, shuffleboard, mosaic lap pool and spa, gymnasium with steam shower, and home theatre. This is a property which truly offers a lifestyle that is majestic yet comfortable, private yet friendly, and prestigious but not pretentious. It represents a rare opportunity to purchase one of the finest oceanfront properties in America.
