Panoramic ocean views are just one of the many reasons to fall in love with this home set along the spectacular bluffs of Del Mar. The newly constructed 6,283-square-foot residence is designed by San Diego-based developer Zephyr in collaboration with Samuel Amoia, whose residential and commercial design projects have garnered buzz around the world. Zephyr is known for building luxury projects featuring outstanding indoor-outdoor spaces designed to capitalize on each carefully selected location’s views and assets.
The home’s outdoor pool is a rarity for oceanfront living in Del Mar.
Here, the oceanfront pool showcases stunning views of the Pacific Ocean just below, with a spacious patio featuring multiple seating areas for lounging, entertaining and dining, and the second-story master bedroom opens up to a large balcony overlooking the ocean. And speaking of the master, the dreamy en suite bathroom also boasts ocean views from the floating tub. “My favorite part is the boxwood paneling throughout the bedrooms, especially the master bedroom,” says Amoia. “It’s so chic, cool and understated. The master bathroom is surreal as well; I could sit in that for hours every day. The master suite is truly the room you never need to leave.”
Vanishing pocket doors help the master bedroom blend seamlessly with the veranda.
The property is being sold fully furnished, with Amoia’s design featuring a color palette inspired by the natural surroundings and accented by expertly placed pops of color. Hamptons beach house style meets California cool with natural stone and wood elements combined with new and vintage furnishings for a layered yet cohesive result. The chef’s kitchen makes a statement with celadon green walls and two central light fixtures serving as a focal point for an inviting Colorado Lincoln stone island, while the living room, a blend of warm and cool neutral tones, is centered on a silver travertine mantel complemented by contemporary wooden furniture. The home’s bathrooms showcase handselected stone paired with colorful, custom-painted Moroccan tiles set against a backdrop of classic cream paneling.
A steam shower and primo ocean views from the soaking tub elevate the master bath.
The list of outstanding features and amenities in the four-bedroom, five-bath home is extensive. “There are so many features that set the home apart,” says Zephyr COO Chris Beucler, “like the security gate; the pool and spa, which you rarely see in a beachfront residence; the 1,100-bottle wine cellar; the expansive luxury theater; the full wet and dry sauna and gym; the elevator; parking for up to 12 cars; and beyond. We really wanted to create something that encouraged an indoor-outdoor lifestyle with such close proximity to the beach, and with those ultraluxe, unexpected amenities to take it to the next level. It’s not just a home, it’s a true lifestyle experience.” $14,995,000, 522 Stratford Court, Del Mar, Jason Barry, jasonbarryteam.com
