This house is right next to the public-access staircase but that also means you have unobstructable views looking south over the state beach, and plenty of natural light:
This video packs a full experience of this 6,000sf+ oceanfront home into two minutes!
Compare to the previous agent’s 3-minute version that highlights the rotating garage platter:
Once things cool down, this is what it’s like (above).
But the open-house extravaganza starts tomorrow at noon, and I like my chances!
It’s been shown four times by agents already, and a fifth couple rolled up when I was there today. Though they have an agent, I spent 30 minutes with them in hopes it might be the right fit.
We have everything going in our favor, and so far no one has complained about the price. For those paying attention, this extra height makes a big difference:
I know what you might be thinking.
“Jim, your condo listing looks like a quality buy……but I need a big joint!”
“How much would it cost me to get a large contemporary where I can walk out my backdoor and stick my toes in the sand? And maybe pick up an inflatable raft for cheap?”
$9,200,000 – take a look:
Homes on Carlsbad Blvd. north of Tamarack are at street level and those residents are looking through car windows to see the ocean – and it’s a sliver, relatively, compared the view from our listing. Our building is 25 feet above the street, and set back another 20 feet so any road noise is manageable. You barely see the cars passing by, and out of sight is out of mind.
Check out our new listing at 111 Sequoia in Carlsbad! Enjoy spectacular ocean views from this highly-upgraded single-level home with no stairs! New kitchen, new baths, new flooring, new paint – just bring your toothbrush and enjoy the sunsets. Lie-down ocean view from master bedroom. This has south-facing windows for plenty of natural light too – a fantastic opportunity to live at the beach!

Thanks to Garrett for letting us look around this 1940s bungalow at the beach:
There have been home sales of $22 million and $23 million on the Del Mar oceanfront in the last 60 days. Hat tip to Richard and ‘just some guy’ for sending this in (the next Coastal Commission meeting is tomorrow):
Del Mar is gearing up for a tussle with the California Coastal Commission over the best way to adapt to rising sea levels, an issue with statewide implications.
The city has taken the position that one of the Coastal Commission’s basic strategies, called “managed retreat” or sometimes “planned retreat,” will not work in Del Mar.
“We have a plan, and we stand by our plan,” Del Mar Councilman Dwight Worden said Friday.
The City Council is scheduled to review its sea-level rise adaptation plan tonight (Oct 7) in preparation for a Coastal Commission hearing on Oct. 16. The commission’s staff has recommended its board reject Del Mar’s plan unless the city agrees to a list of 25 modifications that Worden said could be a “back door” to managed retreat.
