The Sundial, as this home is known, represents the perfect marriage of form and function and is located in the prestigious Country Club area of La Jolla. It is an architectural gem. The panoramic ocean and sunset views are ever changing and the entertaining possibilities in this home are magical for small as well as large groups. Circulate freely among the public rooms or make your way outside to the pool surround or ocean view deck. The home was built for personal use by internationally renowned architect C.W. Kim, who is responsible for many of the striking features of San Diego's downtown skyline. This home possesses equal amounts of craftsmanship, elegance and romance. Of particular note are the dramatic curbed wooden ceilings which dominate the grand foyer and lead to the striking living room. There is a state of the art circular gourmet kitchen with Viking, Miele, and Gaggenau appliances, a grand piano shaped granite island, multiple dishwashers, interchangeable cooktops, grill, exotic lacy wood cabinetry. Adjacent to the kitchen is the formal dining room which could easily seat twenty guests. There is a large master suite with two spacious walk in closets, a full marble bathroom with spa tub, a granite fireplace (there is another stunning fireplace in the living room) and of course that incomparable ocean view. A highlight of the house is the pool with fire pit, and fountain, all accessible by bridge from the gated front entry. Other rooms of note include the library, and family room. In addition to the three car garage, there is a 1500 bottle wine cellar, plenty of storage, a sauna, and maids quarters separate from the rest of the house. A recent addition is the 1000 square foot second story design studio which could easily become an alternative private master suite with breathtaking views or two additional bedrooms. Seeing is believing. We are certain that you will recognize and appreciate the extraordinary detailing of this unique house. We invite you to consider this one of a kind home.
