A one of a kind home located in San Antonio del Mar. This is a monster home with three levels to maximize the views of the beach, surf, dolphins, seals, seasonal whales and the best sunsets with the Coronado Islands in front of you making them ever changing.
It is as far south as you can be in San Antonio, where the best part of the beach is, and direct access is about 30 seconds away, an easy walk. In front is one of the best surf spots down here, Baja Malibu. When the waves are right, you can watch them surf from the two terraces on the beach side. And with the slope of the land, and no annoying telephone and electrical wires to obstruct the views, you actually get to enjoy it!
In its current state it is a 6 bedroom, 3 ½ bathrooms. The front entrance and all three bathrooms are done in slate with glass doors for the shower. Giving it a little bit rustic yet modern look, which is the basic décor of the whole house, a modern rustic look. You will notice this look from when you pull up on the street. The garage doors are not your normal white door, they are custom with iron and wood, and there is an iron gate leading into a court yard with a custom built fountain and many plants to make it inviting! The front door and a side French door leading into the house are also custom as is almost every door and window in the house.
On the bottom level is a 2 stall tandem garage, the entry way, a bathroom and three bedrooms. With one of the bedrooms currently used as a work out room which opens to the front garden area. All these rooms are above ground level so there are windows in each room for ventilation and natural light.
As you move up to the second level it is where the living room, dining room and kitchen are located. This area is HUGE and perfect for entertaining as all open. And all with ocean views through custom made big windows taking up virtually all the ocean side wall. This is where the living room is located equipped with a rustic fireplace which is specially designed to maximize heat, and also set up that you can cook in it. Grilling a piece of meat on an open wood burning fire is exceptional! The area is also equipped with a bar and entertainment area.
This opens up to the dining area which also has its own built ins to feature your china or other dishware. It is a large open space with a specially designed inlay of brick above the table. There is a lot of attention to detail like this through the house. There is also a smaller round high table, and the center island has 4 chairs around it to eat at. There is seating for 14 people comfortably to eat in this area, plus it is possible to eat in the living room also at the bar and a little corner table overlooking the ocean. It is possible to feed 19 people, more if you want to set up folding tables and chairs. And this does not include outdoor sitting.
Now if you are wondering how you can feed that many people all at once, there is not only a normal stove, but there is a commercial grade stainless steel grill in the kitchen, plus the grill in the fireplace and another outdoor grill. It would take more than one cook to manage all this, but it is possible to feed a large group all at the same time. If you have not noticed this home would be a perfect large family home, or a short term rental home. If you are an investor looking for a home to do short term rentals, this is a great choice. With one of the best surf spots, you will attract that crowd. Not to mention just those big families who need a big home and want to be close to the beach, restaurants, golfing, and not too far from the boarder, about 15 minutes. This home is equipped and made for big families and entertaining.
Back to the house and the next level, which is where the master on suit is, and it is almost a house in itself. As you come up the stairs you will see the office space, or sitting room. Off this room you can go to the left where a 6th bedroom was recently added on. You can walk straight ahead into the bathroom and walk in closet. Or to the left is where the master bedroom is located, with 2 French doors opening onto the large terrace. These doors help in a great night sleep as it lets in plenty of fresh air and the noise of the ocean.
As you can see from the pictures this terrace is something special, it has an outdoor Jacuzzi so you can relax to the limit between the bath and the ocean views. It has a privacy fence up to the north and open in front, but covered so no direct sunlight. If you want to be in the sun, move up a level for even better views and direct sun. Plus the views up on this level take it all up a notch!
There are a lot of stairs in this home, which is good to keep you in shape and gets you up higher for the awesome views. But if you ever had to you could put in an elevator to get to all four levels.
So as you can see this is a very unique home in many ways. In style, in size, in views, with excellent access to the beach and surfing, island sunsets and a cooks dream! Not sure what else you could ask for?
