3403 Kellogg Way, Point Loma, 92106

Beds: 7

Baths: 11

Current Owner: Lawrence Cushman

Asking Price: $18,995,000

Prospective buyers of the Point Loma estate at 3403 Kellogg Way are invited by its listing to “come let the warm feeling of summer freedom and excitement be yours year round.”

The home, said to have been built in 1990 (tax records indicate the original structure was built in 1960), contains seven bedrooms and 11 baths spread across nearly 14,500 square feet of living area. The half-acre “private pinnacle lot” is situated in a gated community among the most southerly residential developments on Point Loma before the peninsula turns to government property. Its hillside location on the east side of the point takes advantage of “views that harmonize ocean, bay, and a living city skyline that does not exist anywhere else but here” to provide residents “front row seats to see nature’s show take place.”

Interior rooms include four ocean-view en-suite bedrooms in addition to a separate three-bedroom apartment and maid/guest quarters, a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a full gym, theater, two game rooms, and a wine cellar with rack storage for up to 7000 bottles. Granite and onyx stone finishes are found in the baths and kitchen. Smart-home technology controls everything from the thermostat to the window coverings and home theater, and “the entire estate is wrapped in warm white Jerusalem stone that keeps it cool and stands out as a land marker.”

Though the residence provides significant space under its roof, the focus is on a melding of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Several walls of windows retract to open indoor living areas to “many balconies or plush green lawns.” Outdoor living space includes several covered and uncovered seating areas, some with gas fire bowls, an outdoor kitchen and bath accessible from the exterior, pool and “therapeutic spa,” and a tropically landscaped pond with water features.

“There simply isn’t enough room to mention everything here,” the property’s listing boasts, promising that ownership “allows for the total ‘living the good life experience’ that we all strive for!”

Public records indicate the current owner of the property to be Lawrence Cushman, a locally based real estate investor (and brother of former port commissioner Stephen) whose holdings include the Riverwalk golf course in Mission Valley. The 200-acre site garnered attention last year when preliminary plans were released to raze the course that’s existed in some form or another for the past 60 years to make way for up to 4000 condominium units.

The Kellogg estate has been in Cushman’s possession since at least 1975 and has undergone extensive renovation during that time, including the remodel in 1990 that was extensive enough for the property to be classified as a new home. It was listed for sale once before in 2008, though the asking price of $16,500,000 did not attract any buyers.

After further remodeling, the home was re-listed in early August. It currently carries an asking price of $18,995,000.
