Welcome to “The Arc House,” where modern architecture, masterful design, and intuitive technology converge creating an extraordinary work of art. Perfectly placed in La Jolla, San Diego, residents will enjoy an exceedingly rare 3,000-square-foot garage with an automobile turntable, custom elevator, and approximately 1,000 square feet of deck space. Designed by famed architect, Bill Hayer, the home was completed in 2013 and took over four years from concept to completion. This is true modern coastal living in a world-class location.
A floating walkway leads to a glass front entry opening up to four bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms, including the master suite that is accented with custom art, a striking spherical fireplace, and an outdoor patio to enjoy morning coffee and news. The residence is complete with his-and-hers walk-in closets and a master bath equipped with a towel warmer and steam shower, finished in limestone and fossil brown marble.
Upstairs, discover the living areas, where ocean views and a harmonious balance between indoor and outdoor areas abound. Set up for the modern family, the central state-of-the-art kitchen boasts Anigre cabinets, Caesarstone counters, petrified wood backsplash, a wet bar, and a walk-in pantry. The living room features one of three saltwater aquariums in the home, a wall-mounted TV artfully concealed, and pocket doors leading out to the patio.
The custom spiral staircase leads to the rooftop ocean view deck with a day bed, fireplace, refrigerator and freezer, and gas fire pit bowl. Put your feet up in the family room or challenge a friend to a game of ping-pong. This entertainment space with many moods can be lively with games, or relaxing with a built-in custom sectional, a movie projector with a 160-inch drop down screen, as well as an indoor hot tub with a retractable roof.
From here pocket doors open onto the back patio which rivals any sought-after boutique resort, allowing you to entertain in style with a built-in grill, beer taps, and a refrigerator and freezer. The scene is set with an outdoor dining table and contemporary chandelier next to a cozy sitting area centered in front of the water and fire feature.
Take the custom residential elevator downstairs to the five-car garage featuring an automobile turntable, and a 21-degree sloped driveway for any low-profile vehicles. Also included in the 3,000-square-foot garage are lockable storage closets, a work station, and a laundry room. Lastly, an office with a saltwater aquarium, a private entrance, and an attached bathroom provide a work space and solitude.
