8410 Whale Watch Way | La Jolla, 92037

Current Owner: Chenago Family Trust

Beds: 5

Baths: 6

List Price: $15,950,000

Advertising remarks for the estate at 8410 Whale Watch Way, situated on a hillside about a half-mile from La Jolla Shores, begin with the boast, “Quite simply, this is one of the most beautiful homes in La Jolla....

“Built in the Santa Barbara style, it owns a prime site overlooking captivating white water, ocean, cove and coastline views” that’s “located on one of the most desirable streets in La Jolla.”

The residence, described as “one of timeless beauty” that was “built to exacting standards,” includes 8262 square feet of living space and has five bedrooms and six baths.

The master suite features a bedroom area exceeding 300 square feet and a bath with walk-in shower and jetted soaking tub with a fireplace and window overlooking the ocean.

Elsewhere, a “defining element is the majestic living room. Grand, yet, welcoming, it features an antique coffered ceiling transported from the Denver Museum of Art and oversized, arched windows overlooking the view panorama.”

The kitchen features “top-of-the-line appliances, a butler’s pantry, breakfast nook, and covered Lanao,” with “a wonderful game room and a theater.” Also detailed among the interior amenities are “extensive arched openings and hallways; antique doors including the masterfully-crafted front door, furniture-quality cabinetry, flooring of French limestone, hand-distressed walnut, and walnut herringbone, mahogany interior doors, solid limestone slab stairway;,Venetian plaster interior, bronze-clad Italian mahogany doors and windows (Panto), handmade Italian, one-of-a-kind mosaics; custom lighting system, sophisticated security system; water alarm system; an elevator,” and a “temperature-controlled wine cellar with 2,000+ bottle capacity.” The listing promises this is only “a partial list” of the luxuries that await a new buyer seeking “every conceivable luxury as well as exquisitely beautiful finishes and detailing.”

Outside, the home — whose architecture was derived from “a blend of genres including Spanish, Mediterranean and Moorish, which is the typical Santa Barbara style” when it was constructed in 2009 — boasts “resort-like grounds” that include a vanishing-edge pool and spa that overlook La Jolla Shores, an “expansive covered terrace, and full barbecue service area.

“A foot path from the house to the street below allows for a short walk to the ocean. The home enjoys the splendor of the legendary Whale Watch views... the vast ocean, miles of waves and shoreline, blazing sunsets and sparkling night views.”

Public tax records indicate the Chenago family of Centennial, Colorado, currently holds title to the estate, though the property is not listed as owner-occupied. The property was last sold in 2005 for $4,450,000, prior to the construction of the current home.

The home was previously listed shortly after its reported construction date for $18,900,000 in 2009, though even a price cut to $15,900,000 failed to attract a buyer and it was taken off the market a year later in November 2010 and there it stayed. The Whale Watch property was re-listed in early April 2016, this time with an asking price of $15,950,000 that remains unchanged to date.
