Custom Beauty in The Crosby

As if taken from the pages of Veranda, this extraordinary light infused masterpiece exudes warmth through the finest reclaimed and art-quality finishes. Set within the guard-gated Crosby Estates, the home enjoys serene views of the Crosby National golf course and San Dieguito Valley from the expansive outdoor areas and covered loggia. Recently completed, no expense was spared in this three year ground up new construction process.

Sommer Design appointed the interiors with Exquisite Surfaces French limestone, traditional lime based plaster walls & ceilings, hand-hewn circa 1850s beams, and steel windows. The details, from the unlacquered brass Barber Wilsons plumbing fixtures, to the stunning Lacanche range, or the hand-painted Tabarka tile, give the house an aura of authenticity.

The single level main home encompasses 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 6,150 square feet. For guests, the one bedroom one bath casita is 640 square feet and has a large limestone terrace overlooking the reclaimed brick courtyard. Besides being stunningly beautiful, the home is incredibly smart and energy efficient, with an owned 8.5kw photovoltaic solar array and 700 square feet of pool solar heating, both tucked away from view. Control4 home automation handles the lighting, distributed video, and 14 zones of audio. The home was also certified to be 30% more efficient than the latest Title 24 requirements.

This is the best house I’ve ever had on the blog – take the full tour:

New Homes for Boomers

What could really boost the market further would be if we had more new or newer single-story homes for sale.  Baby-boomers would be much more likely to ditch the older two-story family estates and glide into a ready-set single story home – if there was just an easy exit.

If you wanted a new house under $500,000, how about Las Vegas? The home above is in Summerlin, and I’ve been there.  It is a great alternative for those who don’t mind the heat!

Or if you insist on San Diego County, but might go to the outskirts?

Here are one-story new-home options for you locally:

Plus, this is the Pardee tract they sold off to Toll:

True, in order to downsize, most sellers need to leave town, but at least there are some new-home options to consider nearby.

The folks at the 55-and-over Auberge near Santaluz just wrapped up sales of their brand-new one-story homes, and it would be a good place to look for resales.  Here is a tour of the Plan 3 model, which one of my buyers purchased:
