Our first experience with the Compass for-sale sign (that costs $700):
It’s rumored that Charlie Chaplin used to live here – can’t blame him!
Love how this house looks down the coastline, taking full advantage of the lot. It was active on the MLS for four minutes, and the agent noted in the confidential remarks that is was “SOLD Prior to Activation in the MLS” even though it had been on and off the market since 2016:
Looking for a home with a HUGE ocean view? Join us between noon and sunset on Sunday, March 24th to tour 4275 Clearview Drive in Olde Carlsbad!
Here is a sample of the view:
A tour of our new listing!
The minor repairs needed are distracting to the eye but experienced buyers know that these issues can be dealt with in the first 30-60 days.
The view will last forever.
Wow – look at those jumbo rates with no points!
It would be a great day to buy the Best View in Carlsbad!
We’ll be open 12-3pm Saturday AND Sunday.
Our listing on Clearview is a photographer’s dream with such a wide and unobstructed expanse – white-water surf, whales and dolphins, Navy maneuvers, and the eventual tearing down of the smokestack (shortly).
I won’t do it justice, but I’ll post a few shots as we go.
It’s one of the few places where the ocean view dwarfs the plant:
This photo below is about half of the ocean view you see in person, but without the zoom. The ocean view looks bigger in person:
The street name says it all – enjoy a clear view of the ocean from this elevated location between Skyline and Sunnyhill! Three bedrooms plus den (bedroom suite downstairs), 3 baths, 3-car garage, and newer custom kitchen with tasteful granite slab counters and great ocean view from the kitchen sink. The pie-shaped 9,331sf lot helps to expand the view/privacy and includes a pool/spa too! Needs TLC, but it’s cheap – the house down the street is $3.5M. The Best View available in Carlsbad!
LP = $1,599,000
Open 12-3pm on Saturday!

This house shows how the view from a higher point further back can be better:
From the UT with hat tip to WC Varones (JMI = John Moores, ex-Padres owner):
Developers have finally started construction activity this week on a Leucadia bluff-top hotel project that’s been talked about for decades.
Located just west of La Costa Avenue’s intersection with Coast Highway 101 and part of a site that once contained the Cabo Grill, the 4.3-acre property will become home to a $110 million, 130-room hotel. The luxury hotel, which will have ocean views from all but two of its guest rooms, is scheduled to open for business in November 2020.
Fenway Capital purchased the property about 13 months ago and is working jointly with JMI Realty to develop the land, which was once owned by KSL Resorts, Jackel said. Long ago, this property was envisioned as a companion property — kind of a “beach club” — to the La Costa Resort & Spa just east of El Camino Real, he added.
People passing the site initially will notice little more than new fencing, construction trailers and some surveying work. But at the end of January, a hotel project-funded sand replenishment will start on the beach below the bluff. Contractors will be adding 45,000 cubic yards of sand to the beach between late January and the end of February.
A public staircase in the area will remain and a new beach access pathway will be added from La Costa Avenue as part of the hotel development, Jackel said. The new pathway is scheduled to open just before the start of summer in 2020, a construction timeline indicates.Link to Full Article
