Location: La Jolla, California
In case you're wondering what the most expensive oceanfront property in the famously gorgeous San Diego looks like right now, it's an imitation Santorini estate with genuinely killer views. Designed by San Diego architect Don Edson, the 8,328-square-foot residence sits on an exclusive street in the city's ritzy La Jolla neighborhood and comes with over 100 feet of beach frontage. But you don't even need to get down to the sand to take in the ocean.
Spread over three levels, the seven-bedroom home is full of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and arched windows, highlighting Pacific views in almost every space. Also neat are the high-tech touches. Per the listing, the property is powered by Savant Pro smart home technology, which lets you control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, shades, security, and mood settings in the house with a phone or tablet. This smart home capability also comes into play with the property's "delivery vestibule," where grocery, dry cleaning, or party items can deposited while you're away, operating the door from your smart device. Not too shabby.
