7400 Hillside Drive

La Jolla

Designed by “San Diego’s Father of Modern Design,” famous architect Henry Hester, 7400 Hillside Drive rests atop Mt. Soledad overlooking the San Diego coast and Pacific Ocean.  Spanning an approximately 3-acre lot, a nearly quarter mile gate driveway adds a touch of drama and the ultimate in privacy to the residence. The most prized aspect of the compound, a multi-tiered backyard surrounded by mature, tropical landscaping which includes expansive stone patios, putting green, and, most importantly, an infinity edge pool with endless views.

Boasting approximately 10,000 square feet of living space, the La Jolla mansion seamlessly blends luxurious living with nature with impressive outdoor areas including an expansive wrap around porch, large windows framing exquisite views, and generous use of natural materials and details. Expert craftsmanship abounds with distinctive works of art, hand-carved detailing, and custom cabinetry created by Mueller Turner.

The gourmet kitchen is flooded with natural light proved by the overhead skylight and showcases stunning Hawaiian Koa wood cabinetry, stone fireplace, and large center island. Descend the magnificent staircase to the lower level to reveal an expansive wine room and dining area, large office with ocean view, and bedroom with en-suite. A breathtaking barrel vault ceiling leads you into the master retreat featuring a fireplace, sitting room, sauna, dual baths, and dual closets reminiscent of a fine boutique. Additional features include a tennis court, maid/nanny quarters with kitchen, pool house, and detached guest house.

Enjoy your very own sanctuary in the heart of La Jolla at 7400 Hillside Drive.
