Estrella Mer, a landmark La Jolla panoramic ocean view property, is prized for its singular old world style, extraordinary craftsmanship and intricate custom detailing throughout. You will marvel at the saltillo and hand made Mission Redondo concrete custom tile flooring with intricate and colorful designs, lathe and plaster interior walls, solid Honduran Mahogany windows, solid walnut doors, carved plaster coffered and wooden ceilings. There are multiple outdoor fountains, decks, balconies, terraces and loggias, various spots for large or small gatherings and al fresco dining, and a custom pool and spa with an art deco design. The house boasts six en-suite bedrooms plus an office or additional bedroom, 7.5 baths, an elevator, state of the art movie theater, and a wine room with a 400-bottle capacity. There is a dramatic two story library with private office which has the feel of a movie set, and a master bedroom with a nine foot antique chandelier, a domed two level fireplace, his and hers walk in closets and two onyx accented bathrooms, a private outdoor courtyard with spa and a domed ceiling which is a replica of a domed ceiling found in Balboa Park. The newly renovated expansive Pirch kitchen was renovated in 2019 and boasts a Viking 48 inch Tuscany oven and dishwasher, Subzero refrigerator and freezer and custom cabinetry throughout. The kitchen opens onto a large dedicated dining room with ample seating for twelve or more. Both rooms have easy access to outdoor balconies and the ocean views from both are sensational. It is believed that there is a fireplace from the estate of George Washington and the front door graced a home once owned by Jayne Mansfield. Other features include an ADT alarm system, Crestron computer system with integrated Sonos and Lutron systems, five zoned heating and cooling, surveillance cameras, and a central vacuum. This home, in La Jolla’s Hillside area, in unequaled in its ocean views, quality, versatility, and sense of privacy. It is a home like no other.
