Home Of The Week
7400 Vista Del Mar
Perfectly located on a lightly traveled strip of sand along the picturesque Southern California coastline in the highly sought-after community of La Jolla sits the magnificent oceanfront estate, 7400 Vista Del Mar. The three-level property is located on an exclusive site shared by only 10 other homes on the sand. Setting the standard for oceanfront properties, the stunning approximately 8,328 square foot estate includes roughly 100 feet on Marine Street Beach.
Award-winning international architect Don Edson designed the thoughtfully created floor plan, which uses the Pacific Ocean as the natural focal point. Edson’s design makes use of the expansive and unique qualities of each viewpoint, where he creates a harmony of design and intertwines each element of the home. Over 2,000 square feet of outdoor living space, comprised of patios, view decks, balconies, and terraces, emphasizes the idyllic coastal lifestyle. The iconic blue dome, clay tile roof, and carefully positioned arches invoke images of old Santornini.
Lavish finishes include custom glass front entry doors opening to two dramatic spiral staircases, four custom dome skylights, floor to ceiling sliding doors, automated custom shades, custom closets, radiant heat on all floors, elevator to all three floors, media room with movie projector, private rooftop spa, pizza oven on the main balcony, laundry room and additional washer and dryer in the master bath, and smart home technology to control most systems throughout the home with a touch of a button.
The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s dream boasting a Thermador professional cooktop, stainless steel backsplash, double oven, Sub-Zero® refrigerator and separate Sub-Zero® freezer, walk-in pantry, two Fishel Paykel dishwashers, Uline wine refrigerator, Uline warming drawer, and Life Source filtered water system that runs throughout the home.
Vista Del Mar was the west coast home to larger-than-life figure Jack Londen, whose business empire included insurance, land, and Londen Media Group. According to his widow, Lynn Londen who primarily lives in Phoenix, she and her husband used the La Jolla property primarily as a “beach getaway.”
With panoramic water views from almost every room and 100 feet of ocean frontage, 7400 Vista Del Mar is a beach getaway indeed …
