Current Owner: Gary & Carol Arnold

Listing Price: $6,795,000

Beds: 4

Baths: 4

“This entire home from the front curb to the rear fence was completely renovated” since it last sold in 1999, boast the listing materials for the 2600-square-foot estate at 119 8th Street in Del Mar.

The home, originally built in 1970, sits on a double-sized lot just one house removed from the bluff tops in Olde Del Mar, a mile or so north of Torrey Pines State Reserve.

Inside, many rooms in the home are punctuated with white water ocean views, with “expansive views to La Jolla and beyond.” A glass entry door opens to a bright, tiled foyer. A den with fireplace along with three bedrooms and two baths are downstairs, but most of the living area, including the master suite, is situated on the second floor to better take advantage of the views.

“Expansive views to La Jolla and beyond”

Exposed wood-beam ceilings and hardwood flooring is prevalent throughout the property. The kitchen features the requisite granite-slab counters and high-end stainless appliances with the exception of a built-in wood paneled refrigerator and an island with prep sink and bar seating for casual dining. One of the guest baths is fitted with an antique-style claw-foot tub and distressed-wood dresser converted to use as a vanity.

Outdoor living, however, is where the property shines. The yard carries a tropical theme from the gated entry with custom brick drive and stone walkway to the backyard, where the centerpiece is what the listing office describes as “San Diego’s Pool of the Year.”

The dark-bottomed lagoon-style pool has an elevated hot tub at one end and at the other a swim-up bar with four seats, in addition to two outdoor showers and an “indoor outhouse.” Across the bar is a sunken outdoor kitchen, complete with a built-in grill, multiple ranges, refrigerator, and a wood-burning pizza oven.

There’s also a wraparound ocean-view deck with dining area upstairs and a covered outdoor media area below, which features a 110-inch drop-down theater screen and Dolby theater-quality surround-sound system, which is included along with most other electronics in the price of the home.

The property has twice been featured in national home-design magazines — one focusing on kitchen and bath remodels and another publication exploring high-end outdoor living spaces.

Public records indicate that the property is owned by Gary and Carol Arnold, who purchased the home in 1999 for $1,495,000 before embarking on the extensive round of upgrades. Both Arnolds run their own consulting firms.

The 8th Street home was first offered for sale in late March — the original asking price of $6,795,000 remains unchanged.
