Beds: 5

Baths: 7

Current Owners: Perin and Sam Parabia

List Price: $11,449,000

“Perched high atop a hill, overlooking the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean and the highly coveted La Jolla Country Club neighborhood, sits the magnificent property,” croons an advertisement for the estate at 7213 Romero Drive.

“The moment you step foot inside this unique, custom home, it is apparent that no expense has been spared.” The estate comprises five bedrooms and seven baths, spread among three levels and 8300 square feet of living space, where “every inch of the home has truly been masterfully designed.”

Don’t miss the marble columns in the main entry

The main entry opens to an inlaid-stone floor flanked by marble columns that gives way to a great room featuring the sit-down ocean views available throughout the house, which, with its “dramatic, floor to ceiling windows...creates the perfect space to enjoy San Diego’s majestic sunsets.”

“The perfect space to enjoy San Diego’s majestic sunsets”

The great room “flows seamlessly out to the wraparound patio,” one of several outdoor living spaces on the home’s western edge. A kitchen features Wolf chef-quality appliances, “a large center island with built-in sink, granite countertops, and beautiful dark wood cabinetry.

“Whipping up your family’s favorite recipe can be stress-free and enjoyable!”

An elevator leads to the top level, where the master suite, itself occupying more than 600 square feet, is “complete with a Jacuzzi Tub, walk-in shower, luxurious his and her bath vanities, and of course, plenty of windows to showcase the panoramic ocean and canyon views.”

Game area includes a wet bar

Other interior amenities include a gym, sauna, and steam bath. The lower level has a game room with wet bar, additional seating areas, and room for a pool table. It opens onto the “perfectly designed backyard,” which includes a large covered patio, pool, waterfall, spa, fire pit, and built-in barbecue.

Public records indicate the current owners are Perin and Sam Parabia, who purchased it in 2000 for $750,000. The property at the time was either raw land or the site of an older home that has since been razed. The current estate is reflected as having been built between 2004 and 2005 and has an assessed value of just over $4 million.

Entertaining offers between $9,990,000 and $11,449,000

Sam is listed as the principal of Nine Diamonds Management, a holding company for Bakersfield and Las Vegas motels as well as several local Arco/AM-PM gas station operations. An affiliated entity, La Mesa Nine Diamonds, filed for bankruptcy protection in June 2014, and Parabia is named in a foreclosure proceeding filed in December 2014, though the Romero property doesn’t appear to be affected.

The home has been on and off the market several times since April 2014, at one point carrying an asking price as high as $12.1 million. It was re-listed in mid-March, with the sellers entertaining offers between $9,990,000 and $11,449,000.
