Location: La Jolla, California
There are certain houses that look ready-made for a movie scene, Hollywood-glam exuding from every picturesque view or over-the-top fountain. And that’s the case with this six-bedroom, eight-bath home designed by one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers, Wallace E. Cunningham.
Fittingly called the Razor House after the point on which it rests, the cantilevered property perches on seaside cliffs with panoramic ocean vistas. The building is a multi-level blend of white polished concrete, functional steel supports, and glass, all with bespoke luxury thrown in. Equipped with a state-of-the-art automation system, you can control the music, video, light, and shade system all via iPad.
Floor-to-ceiling glass walls look onto a plethora of outdoor spaces, filled with infinity swimming pools, fire pits, Travertine stone floors, and private terraces. The list of luxury amenities in the almost 10,240-square-foot home—and an additional 1,300-square-foot guest house—is endless; there’s an outdoor kitchen, a spa, a movie theater, an exercise room, and a five-car garage. But it all plays second fiddle to the expansive ocean, a focal point throughout.
It’s a home with over-the-top ambitions, made for billionaires, movie stars, or Bond villains. If that’s you—or merely if you wish it was—9826 La Jolla Farms Road is on the market now for $30 million.
