8350 Calle Del Cielo | La Jolla, 92037

Current Owner: Geranium Limited | Beds: 8 | Baths: 9 | List Price: $12,500,000

Entryway

This edition’s “spectacular custom estate” is “located in The Shores, a highly desired La Jolla neighborhood” less than a quarter-mile from La Jolla Shores public beach.

Listing materials promise that the home at 8350 Calle Del Cielo “will take your breath away.” Its interior features eight bedrooms and nine baths spread across 9900 square feet of living space that “combine an authentic style with livability,” with its “grand indoor and outdoor spaces that invite entertaining on a grand scale.”

The view

Potential buyers are invited to “experience the pleasure of living just a few blocks to the surf and sand and enjoy panoramic ocean views from a home offering expansive living spaces” in the 1999-built residence, designed by Island Architects, a La Jolla–based firm that’s designed homes in tony enclaves across the country.

“Exceptionally gorgeous architectural detail” includes features such as a dual-door entry where visitors first pass through an outdoor courtyard with statuary that “sets the tone for the beauty and serenity that lies within,” exposed-beam ceilings, large arched glass doors opening “onto inviting patios where you can enjoy morning coffee and fresh coastal breezes,” and retracting glass walls that expand living areas to the exterior.

Among the bedrooms are “two gloriously-sized master suites” and a “very complete staff quarters.” A butler’s pantry is adjacent to the kitchen “which is large enough to prepare banquets,” while the formal dining room has seating for 30 guests.

“Defining massive arched windows”

The living room features windows providing a view of the grounds and ocean beyond through “defining massive arched windows,” and two family rooms are “each designed for a different use,” all of which provide “a seamless flow to outdoor spaces.”

The pool

The “resort-inspired backyard” offers further sit-down views from “large stone patios surrounding a beautiful infinity-edge pool.”

The home also includes an eight-car garage and “plenty of wall space” to showcase a large art collection. An adjacent property to the west is also available separately for sale — if combined the estate would include nearly an acre of ocean-close property.

Dining area

Public records indicate that the property has been held since 1995, prior to the current home’s construction (tax records list the original build date as 1961), by Geranium Limited, a corporation based in the Bahamas with a Beverly Hills mailing address. A 1998 grant deed lists a transfer at one point to a Firoozeh Bales, a business executive whose credentials include a teaching certificate from San Diego State.

The Calle Del Cielo property was first offered for sale in mid-November with an asking price of $12,500,000, which remains unchanged to date.
