Much like the timeless and classical artistry that served as a guiding light for Richard Meier, whom the home was inspired by, the concepts of site, order, and the use of natural light drove the design. Natural light was a fundamental, central element to all of Meier’s work and this home truly exemplifies that.
With walls of glass that not only serve to illuminate the space throughout the course of the day, but also serve to frame in the diverse, picturesque views that can be enjoyed from nearly every window in the home. From the famous mesa walls and whitewater at Torrey Pines State Beach, to the tranquil ebb and flow of the tides at Los Peñasquitos Lagoon, and even the captivating sandstone, naturally sculpted canyons of the Torrey Pines Reserve. All of these visually stimulating vignettes can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own private and serene hilltop retreat. To live here would most certainly feel as though time has somehow slowed down, just for you. Providing the unparalleled opportunity to bask in the grand spaces of the home, complemented by vaulted ceilings, thoughtful orientations, and the finest of finishes. The oversized lot, and it’s proximity to the Reserve extension, is sure to leave any visitors to the home with a sense of connection and cohesion with the natural world surrounding them.
For a home to have a profoundly deep and positive impact on not only your demeanor, but also your feelings, is a rarely achieved milestone typically reserved for world-class architecture. We are confident this magnificent residence will do just that.
From the moment you step through the oversized front door, you are transported to a tranquil retreat, bathed in natural light and surrounded by jaw-dropping vistas in all directions. Spanning from the relaxing blue hues of the pacific, to the calming greens of the lagoon, and ending with the grounding, earthy tones of canyon, you will truly feel a connection to the natural world that is unparalleled. The central atrium of the home demands proper attention and time to immerse yourself in the impressive space. Whether entertaining, or simply enjoying the company of your closest loved ones, the magnetism of the home is undeniable to all who enter.
If a kitchen is truly the heart of a home, then this heart beats with an unmistakeable strength and pride. Complete with the finest of finishes to delight your culinary fancies, the Sub-Zero fridge, double oven, gas range, walk-in pantry, and climate-controlled wine room will surely have your inner chef making more frequent appearances. The dream-worthy master retreat, as expected, falls in lockstep with the remainder of the home. Offering inspiring views at every turn, an intimate fireplace for those chilly coastal nights, and a spa worthy bathroom that includes a Japanese soaking tub and sauna. Thankfully all of your friends will be eager to visit this special place, because you will undoubtedly find it difficult to leave!
The bamboo floors, stark white color palette, and the walls of windows will undoubtedly wrap you in their warmth and leave you wishing any responsibilities you may have would simply disappear, affording you as much time in the space as possible. Navigating through the levels of the home and the intimate spaces they provide, you will constantly find new vantage points offering fresh perspectives on familiar imagery. The consideration behind the layout of the home becomes more apparent in proportion to the time spent in the residence, giving new meaning to the expression “not a bad seat in the house”.
