Property description

Enjoy endless summer in this spacious, spectacularly beautiful custom home located in a quiet upscale beachfront community within an easy, two-block safe walk to one of Carlsbad’s best beaches, North Ponto Beach.

Fully licensed and permitted by the City of Carlsbad, this home has everything you, your family and your friends need to relax in a home away from home or enjoy all the area has to offer. Walk two blocks to the check out the waves at the beach; sip your morning coffee lounging in the morning sun on a secluded front gated patio, or on the main floor, gather with family and friends in the spacious dining room with a unique ceiling designed to replicate a yacht, or gather for after-dinner drinks as you relax around a custom fire-pit designed to sparkle like the stars above. Hang out in the family room adjacent to the kitchen with gas fireplace roaring or watch the 55" HD TV. If cooking at home appeals, you can prepare your meals in a gourmet kitchen featuring a 6-burner Thermidor range, new Samsung 4-door refrigerator, and Calphalon cookware – or enjoy Carlsbad’s lovely weather while grilling outside on the Char-Broil grill. Or if you prefer eating out, you can choose any one of the many nearby restaurants based on menus and recommendations in the binder we’ve prepared for you. A full office, with French doors to an outside patio, offers quiet space if work should call.

Easy to get find – by car or train (with the Coaster station in walking distance) – this home provides space to gather or spread out. With three stories, including a unique full basement, this nearly 3900 sq. foot, 5 bedroom home with three full bathrooms and two half baths has a place for up to 12 people to sleep in their own premium beds. Four bedrooms have HD TVs (40”). The master has a king bed, small balcony and a master bath equipped with two-person indoor jetted tub, large glass shower with two shower heads, and toilet room with a bidet. Each of the other three bedrooms upstairs has a queen bed; one has a walk-out balcony to enjoy the morning sun; another has an en-suite 1/2 bath; the last, a serene setting.

Downstairs, there is fun for kids of all ages. While the little ones play in a space dedicated and furnished for them, the gang can cozy up on the sectional sofa to watch a movie on the 65” HD smart TV in the theater area or challenge each other to a rousing game on the indoor basketball shooting machine or playing Ping-Pong. The fifth bedroom – with two twin beds and a set of bunk beds – and second full bath are downstairs.

Beach gear is stored in the clean two-car garage. Beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, surfboards, sand toys, umbrella – and a wagon to pull the goodies to the beach are all there for your use. After you wash off the sand in a warm outdoor shower, you can toss your towels in to the new Samsung washer and dryer to get ready for another day of fun.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: We live in Carlsbad with our three children. When we moved here from the east coast five years ago, we felt that we had arrived in paradise. We are very active family and we spend a lot of time at the beach and enjoying the many local activities. This home was purchased by my parents as their winter home so they could enjoy time with their granddaughters as well as the beach weather and lifestyle. We are proud of this home and look forward to sharing it with you.

Why Carlsbad, CA, USA:
This house is so beautiful with so many wonderful luxury details. Its clean, professionally designed, and furnished with both style and your comfort in mind. Uniquely, it has a full basement with lots of room for indoor play. In addition to its spacious private areas, it has both a family and a living room, a theater room, a separate office and two outdoor patios. We've taken extra steps to reduce allergens with bamboo floors throughout the main level and both mattresses and pillows being encased for cleanliness. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach and near to many activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether you are planning a family vacation or a get away with your favorite friends, experiencing the time together in this beautiful house creates the foundation for making memories that will last a lifetime. There is space to be together, space to be in smaller groups, and, if desired, space to be apart. Thank you for considering our house for your vacation. We will hope to see you in Carlsbad soon!
