Welcome to the Sanctuary, an incredibly private architectural masterpiece with whitewater ocean, lagoon and sunset views. This extraordinary mid-century modern home cantilevers down a gentle slope on nearly an acre of usable Batiquitos Lagoon-front land. Designed by S. Scott Emsley and heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West, this AIA award-winning property includes the following superior features:
*The main house and detached guest house (combined sq footage of 4041) harmonize perfectly, and both feature poured in place concrete, clear redwood ceilings, and heart-stopping views.
*The sprawling 1000+ sq ft deck is perfect for entertaining a crowd or for enjoying your spectacular ocean and lagoon views in complete privacy in this quiet sanctuary.
*The main house has teak flooring & cabinetry, mahogany doors & floor to ceiling windows throughout.
*The .89 acre property itself, set behind a private gate and positioned well away from the quiet cul de sac, includes an ocean view pool and spa, fruit trees and even a children's tree house designed by the home's renowned architect, S. Scott Emsley.
*The Batiquitos Lagoon is one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the Southern California coast of the United States. The area is run by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife as a nature reserve and is designated a Marine Protected area. This portion of the lagoon frontage is closed to outside visitors, with the exception of the birds - including ospreys and peregrine falcons, the butterflies, and the occasional visiting seal.
Other details to consider:
*Main house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2 fireplaces (master and living room) and an open floor plan which includes the living room, kitchen, two office areas, the dining room and a media room.
*Guest house includes 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchenette and a living area which could be a second bedroom.
*3 car extra deep garage and ample guest parking.
