No expense was spared in the complete remodel of this remarkable residence featuring an exceptionally private walled and gated entry, a generous courtyard, exquisite custom appointments, dramatic wood and glass balcony, lush tropical landscaping, an expansive oceanfront patio, resistance pool and spa.


This extraordinary oceanfront residence has been expertly crafted to showcase its awe-inspiring, panoramic views sweeping along the coastline, across the Pacific Ocean to the Los Coronados Islands, to the abundant wildlife and playful sea creatures, as well as spectacular sunsets all year-round!


Stunning, leaded art glass arched entry doors lead into a private, lushly landscaped courtyard offering French limestone and silhouette granite flooring. Exceptional interior appointments include exotic Bubinga wood flooring, Venetian plastered walls, imported Murano glass light fixtures, custom mahogany doors and windows, and master crafted wrought iron railings created by a renowned Napa Valley artist.

Open and inviting, the beautiful living areas flow from one to the next and feature a gorgeous cook’s kitchen with Wolf, Gaggenau and Miele appliances, a fireplace in the living room, as well as a formal dining room.


One bedroom suite is conveniently situated on the entry level. The luxurious master retreat boasts a teak barrel vaulted ceiling, large walk-in closet with built-in cherry cabinetry, and an absolutely breathtaking, bulletproof glass and teak deck, which is ideal for sunbathing or just taking in the magnificent views.
