Oceanfront Custom Estate

I did the quickie video tour – here is the full description:

Built from the ground up in 2016 with one of the largest oceanfront backyards in Encinitas with upper and lower sea wall framed in steel and concrete, 828 Neptune is not only a beautiful Tuscan estate perched atop one of the most magnificent strips of California coastline, it is one of the best constructed oceanfront sites in all of Encinitas. This 3 story, home features a custom wrought iron spiral staircase with a statement 27 foot Bocci glass chandelier, solid walnut plank flooring, Soffit ceilings, Venetian plaster wall finish with crown molding throughout, home theatre perfect for entertaining and frameless glass doors looking out to unobstructed Pacific Ocean views! The kitchen was designed by world-renowned Kitchen Expo – Rich Famie fully equipped with Wolf appliances, cherrywood cabinets, Phylrich & Hansgrohe oil rubbed bronze plumbing fixtures and Madagascar stone countertops with natural curves inspired by those of the ocean. The primary retreat is situated on the top floor overlooking the ocean with a spa-like primary bath featuring heated floors, towel heaters, a steam shower, jetted tub and sauna. From the atmospheric variable color change lighting throughout to the elevator with changing mosaic art on each floor (designed by Rick Sakalic); this home is not only a work of art but also inspired by the majestic beauty of its natural coastal surroundings with modern luxury conveniences. The home has a full home automation system to manage lighting, security, surveillance, audio/visual and window shades and a 3 car garage with a lift. This property is truly one of a kind in a prime location offering a lifestyle that is coveted by most but attained by few. Sold for $11,500,000 cash.

Not a great comp for this guy:

Carlsbad Beach Home

This sold for $4,488,000 after 76 days on the market, which was $400,000 under the original list price (and $100,000 under the list price at time of sale). It is the second highest-priced sale ever of an attached home on the beach in Carlsbad!


Maybe that global warming thing is just on the east coast? Hat tip to cbmark for sending this in!

An oceanfront vacation home in the Outer Banks area made famous by the movie Nights in Rodanthe completely collapsed into the sea, most likely due to erosion, causing debris to wash up along the North Carolina shoreline on Wednesday morning.

Officials from the National Parks Service of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore warned visitors to ‘use caution when participating in recreational activities on the beach and in the ocean between the villages of Rodanthe and Salvo due to debris from a collapsed house.’

A press release sent out by the local National Parks Service noted that smaller amounts of debris were found more than seven miles away. Dare County is working with the agency to clear the crumbled house and remove the debris from the ocean.

The cozy beach town in the Outer Banks became a popular destination after the 2008 premiere of the Nicholas Sparks movie Nights in Rodanthe that starred Richard Gere and Diane Lane, which was set in the coastal town.
