1936 Ocean Front, Del Mar

1936 Ocean Front, Del Mar

Welcome to one of the most exclusive (and expensive) stretches of real estate in San Diego: beachfront property in Del Mar.

This home, at 1936 Ocean Front, sits along the coast about a half mile south of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and has, according to its listing details, three bedrooms (plus a fourth optional bedroom), four full baths, and another two half-baths within the 4000-square-foot residence, built in 2002 on an 8250-square-foot lot.

“This incomparable architectural masterpiece is designed to be harmoniously integrated with its world class oceanfront location,” describes the listing.

“Enter through a beautiful courtyard featuring a lap pool complete with a bridge to one of the entrances to the home. The curved oceanfront façade and deck are reflective of the waves beyond. [The home has] breathtaking ocean views from all primary living and sleeping areas.”

A “great room” looking out onto an ocean-view terrace houses living and dining areas, and a stone bar opens to the chef’s kitchen, complete with dual ovens, cooktop and professional-grade hood, and plenty of polished stainless steel.

From the main living area, one follows the glass-walled hallway looking out onto the entry courtyard back to the wood-paneled family room, featuring a unique fireplace, which has a full bath and could be used as another bedroom suite. Steps to the back lead to two guest rooms, each with a private bath and with one boasting a “full white water ocean view.”

The master suite has its own oceanfront deck as well as an interior “sleeping area” plus adjacent room for a private lounge or “inspired home office.”

Most areas of the house, including this office space, feature sweeping ocean views.

Other features include “a copper roof, cherry wood trim, teak wood exterior doors and window frames, ceilings that are unique both as to shapes and materials, motorized blinds.”

A two-car garage, plus carport space and a parking apron, provide space to store up to seven cars. A motorized lift provides access from the main living area to a basement and storage space.

According to the listing, the lot’s 55 feet of beach frontage is “substantially more than a standard Del Mar oceanfront lot,” and the custom residence was “designed and built to the maximum height and square footage allowable for the site.”

Property tax rolls show the home as having last changed hands in 1998 for $3 million, before the current residence was constructed; though, Sandicor, the region’s multiple-listing service, records the previous sale price at $6.4 million.

The property’s owner is listed as Shared Ventures, Inc., a corporation with a mailing address in Medina, Minnesota. Several recorded deeds against the property, however, were signed by Texas multimillionaire and former San Diego Padres owner John Moores and his ex-wife Rebecca Moores. The Rebecca A. Moores Family Trust is also the listed owner of record for a neighboring 5284-square-foot residence at 1934 Ocean Front, which is not and has not recently been listed for sale.

The property was listed on December 27 for $22,950,000, which remains the current asking price, putting the home in a tie for the sixth most expensive single-family residence publicly offered for sale in San Diego County.

Yes, a beautiful home, but not $23 MILLION!! beautiful.

Not even the nicest home on the Del Mar ocean front.

$23 million for 4000 square feet? I don't THINK so. Del Mar is not the Malibu movie colony!
