About the Property

Immerse in a Mid-Century Modern sanctuary, with commanding whitewater views on one of the most sought-after streets in Old Del Mar. Indoor and outdoor areas flow seamlessly with design elements and natural light that are harmonious with the ocean and surrounding urban forest. Views extend south to La Jolla over the sand at Torrey Pines state beach and North to the Channel Islands over an infinity-edge deck. After your walk to the beach, or time in the ocean, return to an outdoor rainforest shower and spa. The lawns, decks, and outdoor area are expansive, and despite the open views are incredibly serene and private. The home has historical significance, commissioned as a prototype in the 1950s by US Steel with the assistance of architect John Lloyd Wright. The unique steel construction elements spared no expense in that era and are timeless. The landscaping was designed and procured by past resident-owner Emmet Wemple, who was the pioneering landscape architect of the Getty Museum. Your family will make memories in the expansive great room with natural/gas fireplace or the chef’s kitchen with top appliances and warm custom hardwoods. 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths make up a 3500 square foot living space with a 2-car detached garage. Every area in the house is in touch with ocean, sky, and nature. The serenity, history and design permeate life at this mid-century oasis. This is a home is a generational, once-in a lifetime opportunity. This home soothes the soul!
