Let’s settle in for drinks on the patio, shall we?

There’s no shortage of gorgeous beachfront real estate in California, and the latest swoonworthy listing to catch our eye is this five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath home in Del Mar. Located about 25 minutes north of San Diego, the 6,283-square-foot oceanfront home was designed in collaboration with Samuel Amoia by Zephyr Development.

The palm trees and wide open views are all California, but the home was inspired by the style of a beach destination on the opposite coast: the Hamptons. Wood cladding and an asymmetrical facade create a classic look, and the shingle-style home is oriented to take advantage of beachfront living.

Vanishing pocket doors open the living and dining room to a pool and patio area, and there’s plenty of room—think 650 square feet—outside for entertaining and sunset watching. Inside, it’s all about that magical light, with big, airy windows providing ocean views aplenty. Shower bathrooms are tiled in bright, geometric bursts of yellows and teals, and the master bedroom features its own private veranda, steam shower, and soaking tub.

If you can stop ogling the ocean for a bit, other perks include a game room, bar, wine cellar, theater with seating for 12, elevator, gym, sauna, and chef-grade kitchen. Love what you see? 522 Stratford Court is on the market now for $14,995,000.
