A lush hillside in the coastal town of La Jolla is where this distinctive estate rests.

With 3 beds, 3.5 baths, this expansive single level 4800 sq ft home has 20 ft floor to ceiling glass walls that capture the amazing view of the ocean, downtown La Jolla, and the golf course.
From the second you set your eyes on this bold and dynamic estate, one can appreciate the superior craftsmanship throughout. The garage, with custom copper doors makes an emphatic opening statement. This barrier free design takes visitors on journey which begins with a fully enclosed courtyard entrance that opens up to the coastal expanse. Protected on all sides by towering glass, and shielded from above by an ample canopy of trees, you feel the natural surroundings. This remarkable glass is both artistic and functional, as it acts as a framing device for the structure itself.
The details throughout the home are quite unique. A master bedroom that has two major openings, one a disappearing door, and another that pivots to become a wall. Oversized doorways, hallways that feel more like a garden stroll or a visit to an art gallery, where the separate wall panels re-direct your eye from nearly every room this estate is far from ordinary. A grand spiral staircase leads to a Romeo & Juliet tower, perfect for an artist’s retreat. The cabinets throughout the property are inset, and blend into the walls seamlessly. Beautiful hand laid rust stone flooring; fine granite countertops and recessed wall lights greet you throughout the home. Every detail is a part of the whole experience. The powder room is so far from traditional, with an open concept that captures a skyward view. There are disappearing doors, furniture like the dining room table that’s placed in a fixed position, flanked by glittering crushed glass fire feature. The backyard is complete with a tropical koi pond and babbling brook water feature.
