Del Mar Castle

The Del Mar Castle which sits on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean and the community of Del Mar was built in 1925 by Ruth and Marston Harding who relocated from Massachusetts. The Castle contains approximately 10,000 sq. ft. including a detached guest house. It was designed by famous local architect Richard Requa who went to Europe to study the best design and returned with authentic stained glass, doors and hardware from castles in the south of Spain.

Tony Robbins bought the Castle in 1987, and sold it for $2,100,000 in 1997.

Vetted billionaires and high-end real estate agents have been among the few to tour Sycamore Valley Ranch, as the 2,700-acre spread in Los Olivos is known.

But on Monday morning NBC New’s “Today” show is offering the next best thing, a virtual tour in which correspondent Joe Fryer looks at features from the late King of Pop’s day. Among them are the international superstar’s floral clock, train station and movie theater.

The host made a mistake and said 2,700sf in this video – it is 2,700 acres:

Downtown Tour

I mentioned the downtown San Diego open house tour on Saturday, and got there myself for just a glimpse – here’s a sampling of the diverse buildings on this year’s list:

The actual mission-style building that houses the San Diego Chinese Museum was physically moved from a couple of blocks over. They have photos of that and other historic shots when you visit in person. For a youtube tour, click here: https://youtu.be/yUwSrfqu0kE
