Home Of The Week

5366 Calumet Ave

La Jolla

Villa de Fuego y Agua is a stunning Mediterranean estate perched atop the sun-soaked La Jolla cliffs, where it commands unobstructed views from Bird Rock to Point Loma and the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean clear to the horizon. Designed to take every advantage of the site’s rare natural beauty, the home’s open plan is accented with expansive windows and exceptional flow for easy living and impressive entertaining.

A large front courtyard sets a welcoming tone and the arched entry doors open to reveal the breathtaking ocean views. The expansive living room, which has an elegant travertine fireplace, enjoys wall-to-wall ocean vistas. The adjoining dining area has wraparound windows for spectacular gatherings. The spacious and party-worthy kitchen will inspire any cook with its views, center island, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and refrigerated wine storage. Just outside the living room, dining room and kitchen is a show-stopping 90-foot outdoor terrace with a dramatic custom fire wall and non-stop ocean panorama – an entertainer’s dream or the perfect place for romantic cocktails beneath the stars.

A downstairs bedroom suite with gorgeous wood floors also looks out on the view from a full-wall window. A large central courtyard completes the lower level. Upstairs, the master suite is an elegant retreat, accented with fireplace, sitting room and a spa-like master bath with exquisite marble shower, tub and countertops. A private patio off the master has clear views from La Jolla to the Coronado Islands. There are two additional family bedrooms on the upper level.

There are many other fine details throughout, including air conditioning and recessed lighting. There is a three-car garage with direct access plus three off-street parking spaces and there is a Cal Spas indoor swim and fitness spa in the garage. A residence of rare quality and unparalleled location, this La Jolla clifftop home represents Southern California living at its finest.
