Home Details

This custom French-styled masterpiece sits behind private gates and majestic high-walls that surround the property. The estate features extraordinary architectural detailing including stately half-timbering and steeply pitched hipped roofs of Normandy influence, to sun-drenched relaxed elements of Provence-Côte d'Azur. Designed by renowned Island Architects, the property sits on a uniquely large lot on one of the most prestigious streets in the exclusive coastal Lower Hermosa neighborhood. SEE SUPP. Featured in architectural and lifestyle magazines and the subject of numerous private home tours including La Jolla’s “Secret Garden Tour,” the estate is one of the more recognized homes in La Jolla. Evocative of a magnificent Provençal villa, this stunning residence was constructed over an extended period with extraordinary craftsmanship and allegiance to historic French design elements. The architectural design flows from formal entry, grand living and dining rooms to welcoming indoor and outdoor open-areas. The beamed-ceiling family room and spacious entertainment area all open to a French-style kitchen and adjacent breakfast nook. The kitchen offers the added convenience of a butler’s pantry and walk-in food pantry. The French doors in the adjacent entertainment area open out to an expansive, scenic courtyard featuring an Italian-carved fountain, majestic fireplace and built-in barbecue station. The courtyard flows out to the natural pondlike swimming pool, complete with waterfalls, arched stone-bridge, spa and koi pond. The grounds are graced with impeccable landscaping, gardens, lawns and fruit-bearing citrus trees. Situated at the rear of the extended lot sits the separate dovecote-styled guest house with a classic French turret entrance topped with a conical clay tiled roof. The character-filled interior features angled high beamed-ceilings, French Traditions designed kitchenette along a separate stone-tiled bathroom. The rare antique roof tiles from Northern France are further defined with bold rooflines, copper gutters & downspouts all majestically adding to the overall French Châteauesque ambiance. Notwithstanding its historic architectural influences, the residence is replete with smart home conveniences, home efficiencies, energy-saving additions and modern lifestyle amenities. High efficiency solar system (LG 305-watt panels) in hidden area of roof (behind roof parapets). served to reduce the electric bill by more than 50%. Panels cannot be viewed from anywhere on the ground or decks. · Tankless water heater serving main house and separate tankless water heater serving guesthouse (A/K/A “Flash heaters”) are expensive to install but far more energy-efficient since it heats water when it is needed; moreover, it never runs out of hot water. Also, you are not continuously heating water unnecessarily. · The flash heaters are connected to a hot water recirculation system that provides instant hot water throughout the house. · Panasonic Digital Hybrid Phone system integrated with door bell and LCD display phone stations. · Alarm system was installed with wired contact points, perimeter video monitoring cameras and integrated DVR system to allow rewinding of each video stream. Multiple alarm keypads with remote smartphone alarm activation/deactivation and camera viewing. · 3 HVAC zones with smart thermostats for scheduling and secure smartphone temperature control access · Hand-painted Trompe-l'œil adornments along with modeled walls throughout · Dual-glaze windows custom manufactured without air-pocket space which allows windows to look more traditional and minimizes the inevitable “fogging” of the airspace gap; while increasing energy conserving efficiency. · Central vacuum system serves the entire main house and garage. · Built-in retractable ironing board and station in dedicated laundry room. · Whole-house water purification system. · Irrigation system with separate scheduling controls. · High-end in-celling speakers in family room, playroom, kitchen, living room, exercise Room, office and master bedroom. · Two sets of in-wall outdoor speakers · Low voltage landscape lighting (all copper lighting fixtures). On at dusk and off at dawn. · Courtyard lights on timer with smart phone access and scheduling. · Wired Ethernet and wireless Wi-Fi through-out · Dual coax cable ports for both CATV and Satellite · Bright and open French kitchen, F
