About the property

Stunning home with panoramic ocean views blocks from the Village center!

This hilltop Tuscan home sits majestically on a narrow, winding road in the tree-packed hills of Olde Del Mar above Camino Del Mar. The 16,000 sq ft lot with woodsy surroundings and stunning panoramic views of the ocean to the west and San Dieguito Lagoon is so quiet and peaceful it is easy to forget it is conveniently located less than 5 miles to the world renown Torrey Pines Golf Course, 2 miles from the Del Mar Racetrack, 1 mile from the ocean, and is just a half a mile stroll to local shops and restaurants. This newly constructed, award winning home was featured in the July 2013 San Diego Home and Garden Magazine.

Rich in timeless and classic Tuscan Mediterranean architectural character, this home blends into its woodsy setting with its rustic aspects and neutral pallet and welcomes you with the warmth of natural stone tile, distressed wood floors, and Old World finishes. The home features a spacious open floor plan which boasts 12’ ceilings and walls that disappear as glass doors slide away rewarding you with over 2,000 sq ft of outdoor decks and patios with endless views.

The ample living room becomes even larger when you open the sliding glass door and are greeted with a deck that has sunset ocean views and seating for 10 people. It has a large wood burning fireplace surrounded by natural stone, a flat screen television, and a formal dining area which seats 8.

The spacious kitchen features every luxury with modern amenities and tall glass doors that seamlessly open to the extensive travertine patio built around a charming Sycamore tree that provides a canopy in the summer with broad, bright green leaves. The patio not only has a conversation seating area for 8 and a dining table that seats 6, it also provides a built in, natural gas BBQ with a sink, mini fridge, and bar top dining area. The backyard also yields a sizable lawn, another seating area surrounding a fire-pit facing the lagoon, a water feature, and is surrounded by lush trees.

A dramatic curved staircase comprised of a custom wrought iron and a Beechwood handrail in the entryway leads you up to the private master suite which comprises the second floor. It features large windows with views of the ocean, an ensuite with travertine tile, Jacuzzi jetted tub, separate shower with showerhead and handheld shower, dual sinks, large walk in closet and a gorgeous rooftop terrace with a large seating area, lounge chairs, an outdoor spiral staircase down to the main patio and endless panoramic views.

Gorgeous home in serene setting with stunning sunset views. Great for family and friend gatherings. Great kitchen and grill for foodies. Close to shopping, beach front restaurants, and parks. If going for event or wedding at L'Auberge then this is 2 minutes away. We attended a friends wedding. Great help from management. Convenient to grocery stores for extended stay. Will definitely return when back in SoCal!

Absolutely the perfect venue for our family vacation; could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

The home in Del Mar could not have been more perfect for our spread-out family to come together for a great vacation. This home far exceeded the online can't do justice to the stunning views and magnificence of this home with web site pictures. We have three adult (two married) children and three grandchildren ages 6 mos. to 2 1/2 years. We had a great time. The spaciousness of the house and floor plan together with the three expansive outdoor decks all with ocean views (as well as the roar of the crashing surf) made for a great place for us to gather as a family and enjoy hanging out together in comfortable and inviting surroundings. The hilltop vistas of both the ocean and the valley along with the privacy of the home can not be beat. With the young children we took advantage of Smokestack Park picnicking daily in the grass with the nearby play set area and an easy walk down to the beach - perfect for the grandkids (would be perfect for children and adults of all ages). It's an easy drive to the zoo (which we all immensely enjoyed) and Sea World and other major attractions. With the young children our outings were limited which is why this home was so special - we enjoyed just hanging out together as a family. Our one special night out was Georges on the Cove in La Jolla - a fabulous dining experience. The owner's rep was very helpful in pointing out the features of the home and ensuring we were comfortable and orienting us about local attractions, parks, and shopping. The owner is so gracious allowing use of beach toys, backyard games and fully appointed top-of-the-line kitchen and outdoor BBQ kitchen. Throw in the perfect weather and what more can I say, you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything you want it to be plus more!!! The location is gorgeous as it sits at the top of a hill with ocean views-breathtaking! Its really easy to get around Del Mar from this house as well - beach, bikes, great food, coffee and stunning scenery all within 5 minutes!! The owner made us feel right at home and was accessible for the few questions we did have. We had a blast here and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway!!!

Stayed here for my sons wedding at Lauberge in Del Mar. Truly a wonderful experience-fantastic ocean views from the various decks facing west, and even an additional sitting area with fire pit facing east. The leasing agent could not have been nicer. I had a question for the owner and he was very gracious and helpful. The kitchen opens fully onto an outdoor deck, making a really unique setting.

We were actually sort of bummed when we had to leave the house to attend the wedding!!

At night you can hear the surf from Del Mar beach-we could not have been happier.

Stay-cation Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our non-traditional wedding. The house was amazing, the layout was perfect for family to stay with us, while still allowing private space in the master suite. The interior design of this house was beautiful and because of it my event required small touches to enhance the atmosphere but the house did most of the work. We did run into an unexpected visit from the landscapers on the day we were getting married but they were nice and left prior to start of the event. We really enjoyed our stay in Del Mar and would definitely recommend this house to others. The property manager was also very informative, flexible and friendly.

Perfect vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 6 adults stay here for a relaxing getaway. The home was just as beautiful, clean and high end as it is in pictures. The set up is just perfect for a backyard BBQ. There were a lot of things available to keep us entertained such as a karaoke machine, fooseball, beer pong tables, bean bag toss, badminton, beach supplies and more. We never wanted to leave.
