About the property

House, 8,000 Square Feet, 5 Bedroom, 6 1/2 Baths, Canyon, Close To Beach

Our 8,000 square foot custom-built home is located on a private drive with an automatic entry gate opening onto an one acre landscaped shingle-style home surrounded by Torrey Pine trees. A stone walkway and covered porch welcomes you into a beautifully appointed Cape Cod interior including 5 bedrooms and 5 ensuite bathrooms (6 and 1/2 bathrooms in all), plus a game room, two wood-burning fireplaces, a dining room that seats up to 14, piano alcove, and 3/4 inch reclaimed maple hardwood flooring with oriental Persian rugs throughout. The formal living and family rooms feature voluminous, 20 foot ceilings and a wall of windows allowing an abundance of light to stream in. The master suite, privately situated on the main floor, features two sink areas, two oversized closets, a jacuzzi bathtub, and a two-headed shower, and also opens onto the back patio. The gourmet kitchen features a Thermador stove with double ovens, two dishwashers and two microwave ovens, perfect for family gatherings and good meals! The upper level contains 4 bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom, as well as an office, all with garden, canyon, or ocean views. Two of the bedrooms and the office also have outdoor balconies, and one of the bedrooms upstairs is equipped with a microwave and mini-refrigerator. Colorful Adirondack chairs set in natural stone patios present the perfect setting to relax while absorbing the beauty that surrounds you. The tranquil backyard boasts a gas and solar heated, infinity-edge pool and ocean views through the trees, as well as a barbecue. Multiple seating areas provide ample space for eating and enjoying the views. We also have a rose garden and you are free to clip the roses! Torrey Pines State Reserve trails are a block away, and our house comes with a parking pass that will enable you to park at the beach at Torrey Pines. Both Torrey Pines and Del Mar beaches are a 20 minute walk or easy less than five minute drive away. Parking includes a three-car garage and an electric car charger.

Great Del Mar Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation with some friends. This beautiful house was a perfect setting for us to stay. The owners were very accommodating and the house was stocked with everything we could have ever needed. Beach access was only about a two minute drive away and there are plenty of services close for anything you might need. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this for anyone who wanted to be in this area.

This is a home that has been custom designed for family and for entertaining. The house is wonderful inside but the grounds around the house are just lovely. Our family of 12 loved it here. Thank you to the very nice and accommodating owners.

Great house and location for family vacation + great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very comfortable house over Spring Break 2018 with our children and grandchildren, and had a wonderful time. The house has a very good kitchen, dining areas inside and out, good beds, a very nice pool, and a great lawn and garden. It's secluded (and quiet) as described but only 5 to 10 minutes by car to a very good beach or 25 minutes or so by foot, mostly on a very nice trail. Grocery stores, shops, and restaurants are nearby, and access to I-5 is easy. Last but not least, the owners, Linda and Gary, are very accommodating hosts. I highly recommend their house.

Anniversary in Calif

  • 4 of 5

We brought our family (15 people) to Del Mar to celebrate our 50th. Great house and owners were very responsive. They even got us some equipment we needed to see some film of our early days. Lovely yard and pool. Close to beach and many restaurants. Weather was OK but not great.

We would recommend for any large group!

Stunning Home / Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It is a beautiful home, that has been maintained with great care throughout. The infinity edge pool is gorgeous with a view of the ocean through the tree's.

The owners met us upon arrival and took the time to walk us through the home and property to make sure that we were aware with how things worked in the house & pool areas. The kitchen was well stocked, beds & furniture very comfortable. It is immediately noticeable that the owners take considerable pride of ownership in in the home and surrounding grounds. It truly is a stunning property, and quite private. The location has very easy access to I-5, and most of San Diego attractions are within easy driving distance. Would highly recommend this rental !

Girlfriend Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from our wonderful stay at Gary and Linda's beautiful home. We were a group of 9 women and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home is very well appointed with pretty much everything you could need. The location is fabulous to the beach, walking trails, great restaurants, spa, etc. Gary and Linda were great about responding promptly to any of our questions. I would highly recommend this property!
