Location: San Diego, Calif.
Located on a prime stretch of La Jolla, a beautiful beachfront neighborhood in San Diego, "The Cresta" by local architect Jonathan Segal shows how to live large on a small lot. The 5,480-square-foot house, rising on a 0.11-acre site, is essentially a giant concrete shell with sliding glass walls covering 70 percent of the home. As a result, this indoor-outdoor masterpiece, complete with exterior lounge areas and a lap pool, takes full advantage of its spectacular ocean views and comes off quite spacious.
Built in 2012 as Segal's own beach home, the three-story, four-bedroom home is now listed for $5.75M. According to a project statement on ArchDaily, the home can almost completely power itself, thanks to a 6.5 kW rooftop solar array and efficiency measures like sun-shading and pool insulation.
