La Jolla real estate is highly sought-after for many reasons. Luxury homes in La Jolla often boast remarkable architecture, high-end refinements and impressive panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean or San Diego’s city lights. Some offer both, thereby furthering their appeal.
Throughout the La Jolla real estate market, buyers will find coveted treasures, especially along Camino de la Costa, a gently winding coastal road punctuated by exquisite luxury homes. The lovely stretch of road holds remarkable upscale homes with charming histories that are seldom found anywhere else.
One of the Jewel's finest gems is found on Camino de la Costa
One such home is 6005 Camino de la Costa, which rests just steps from Sun Gold Point. For nearly a decade, the beautiful coastal escape belonged to Raymond Chandler, a celebrated novelist and screenwriter. His stories were brought to life on the silver screen by Hollywood legends, including Humphrey Bogart and Alfred Hitchcock. Some of his workspaces, such as the study, are still original to the home.
The peaceful seaside retreat Chandler once called home features prized white water views from nearly every room and innovative architecture that marries classic and contemporary elements in an elegant manner. The home was recently improved upon by one of La Jolla’s finest custom builders, Kevin Weber. He crafted a remarkable home with six sophisticated bedrooms, six and one-half spa-like baths and an impressive gourmet kitchen.
The copper roofed home offers buyers inviting living spaces that exude balance and eloquently flow into each other and into exterior spaces that are bathed in brilliant Californian sunshine. The luxury home’s interplay between classic refinements, like coffered ceilings, and contemporary accents, such as vanishing glass and African mahogany doors, is particularly noteworthy.
Moreover, 6005 Camino de la Costa rests mere feet from La Jolla’s pristine shoreline in a location that affords buyers panoramic views of San Diego’s city lights and the Pacific Ocean. Incredible views can also be enjoyed from the home’s slate decks, which offer 1,500 square feet of space to take in La Jolla’s splendid natural ambiance. Exterior refinements also include a private courtyard with a summer kitchen and a stacked stone fireplace where one can take full advantage of the Jewel’s gorgeous weather.
About Camino de la Costa
Raymond Chandler’s former address is a real estate darling seated beside equally coveted luxury homes on Camino de la Costa in La Jolla. This unapologetically beautiful stretch of coastal road is adorned with a rare collection of luxury homes. La Jolla is a seaside beauty that ranks among the top ten luxury real estate markets in America, and some of the most coveted addresses in the Jewel belong to homes on Camino de la Costa.
Camino de la Costa weaves a lovely path along La Jolla’s serene coastline in Lower Hermosa. Both sides of the prominent road, which is called the “Street of Dreams,” hold refined luxury homes with Mediterranean, Tudor, Storybook and contemporary architectural influences. The streetscape’s appeal is amplified by a delightful mix of classic and contemporary architectural marvels seated along La Jolla’s rocky bluffs.
