Written By: Tyler Holland Point Loma Home
For many, Southern California is the stuff dreams are made of and with year round perfect weather, seemingly endless beaches and limitless attractions, it’s easy to see why. After moving to the city of your dreams, the next step is finding that perfect home that brings together everything that makes the location so special, and as luck would have it, the hard work of finding such a property has already been done. With views of the San Diego Bay, easy access to the city’s famous entertainment and ample outdoor space, this beautiful home perfectly complements the city it overlooks.
Located at 632 San Gorgonio in the La Playa neighborhood of picturesque Point Loma, this incredible two-story property is built to live like a single story and offers all the luxuries you would expect to find in a much larger estate with only a fraction of the upkeep—good news for those who wish to enjoy more time enjoying stunning views of the bay and less time maintaining the grounds. Situated on half an acre of land, the 6,557-square-foot property comes equipped with five bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, three separate two-car garages, a hot tub, pool, wine cellar, theater, office/poker room, exercise room, guest house and putting green. The guest house makes up one of the total rooms featured, and even has its own living space, laundry facilities and a kitchen complete with a top of the line Le Cornue cooking range, which is also found in the main property. If cars are more your thing, each garage is ample size and strategically located, with one attached to the house, one near the putting green and one as you enter the house.
When picking a place to call home, the importance of location cannot be denied, and neither can the beauty of this property’s surroundings. Almost every room has views of the bay and even the five TVs located throughout the home drop from the ceiling, leaving the views obstruction free when not in use. Because of the district’s elevation, nightfall means the city’s skyline comes to life right before your eyes. San Diego’s constant activity is exciting to watch, but when the desire to participate arises, the property’s location offers access to nightlife and attractions you can handle. Plus, if you need a change of scenery, the airport is nearby.
The views outside are important, there’s no doubt about that, but the views inside are not to be overlooked. This property was constructed by David Taylor using the unique old world architectural seal style utilizing stone, wood and glass that creates the feel of a time-tested estate despite being finished in 2009. From the baker’s pantry designed around a butcher block from Lyon, France, dating back to the 1800s, to the antique doors from Germany and Brazilian sandstone, all finishes utilize the highest standards creating a beautiful space throughout. Incorporating the vast amount of antiques may have lengthened the building process, but the result is worth it. Did I mention the floors are heated?
Head through the front doors, and you’ll find a terrace leading to a lawn lined with fountains and pots reminiscent of what you would see at Versailles, all with the bay as its backdrop. The lower terrace has an entertaining area with a barbecue, pizza oven and ample seating making it the perfect setting for a relaxing evening. Living in America’s Finest City means being able to enjoy outdoor activities year-round. This property takes this to heart. The pool and hot tub are situated in the back of the property with the hot tub slightly separate from the pool. They use salt water, which reduces maintenance and adds to the eco-friendliness of the property. Water features, a fireplace and an outside shower make the pool area all-inclusive. Whether you feel like lounging by the pool or enjoying the view, there is something to please all tastes.
This house was designed with eco-friendliness in mind. In addition to the salt-water pool and hot tub, the lawn, as beautiful as it looks, is not real grass, which reduces water usage and maintenance. The drains are also connected to the sprinkler system and electric window treatment is used throughout the property, which helps regulate the temperature and reduce glare.
Keeping aesthetics in mind, the showers use French drains, which means the drains are hidden off to the side so they are not easily noticed. This creates a sleek, modern appearance reminiscent of luxury spas.
