7400 Vista Del Mar, La Jolla, 92037

Beds: 7

Baths: 10

Current Owner: Jack Londen

List Price: $22,500,000

The oceanfront La Jolla estate at 7400 Vista Del Mar promises prospective buyers the chance to own “a euphoric escape in one of Southern California’s most iconic neighborhoods.”

The 2003-built home, on the market for only the second time since its construction, features 8328 square feet of living space including seven bedrooms and ten baths under roof, with another 2085 square feet of outdoor living area.

“A gourmet cook’s dream”

Designed by “award-winning local architect Don Edson, whose projects can be seen as far away as Dubai,” the estate boasts “a delicate balance of traditional architectural design with state of the art amenities.”

Note the carefully placed arched windows

Private gates at the front open to an “impressive glass entryway, where the eye is immediately drawn to the grand staircase lined with exquisitely crafted glass bannisters.” A “voluminous” main living room opens to the kitchen described by the listing as “a gourmet cook’s dream, boasting a Thermador professional cooktop, stainless steel backsplash, double oven, SubZero refrigerator and separate SubZero freezer, walk-in pantry, two Fishel Paykel dishwashers, Uline wine refrigerator, Uline warming drawer, and Life Source filtered water system that runs throughout the home.”

One of two spiral staircases

Other ground-floor rooms include a second, more intimate living room, children’s bedroom, nanny and guest suites, private gym, billiard lounge, and a “one of a kind theater area with seating for six.” All of the spaces have been “meticulously designed for optimal living and entertaining.”

Smart home technology allows for control of the home’s systems

The master suite, meanwhile, occupies the home’s entire third level (accessible via elevator) and includes “a private dressing room, office, kitchenette and a spa inspired master bath with an oversized tub,” along with a second laundry room and a 1100-square-foot terrace that invites one to “enjoy the sunset with a glass of fine wine and experience the endless panoramic views of the coast.”

The estate carries an assessed tax value of $14.3 million

The building’s exterior, listing materials promise, “conjures up images of old Santorini architecture, with carefully positioned arched windows, clean rounded lines, and two iconic domes.” The home’s “lavish finishes include custom glass front entry doors opening to two dramatic spiral staircases, four custom dome skylights, floor to ceiling sliding doors, automated custom shades, custom closets, radiant heat on all floors, five A/C zones, private rooftop spa, pizza oven on the main balcony,” and smart home technology provided by Savant Pro that allows for control of the home’s systems via iPhone or iPad.

Located on “a lightly traveled strip of sand,” the estate enjoys approximately 100 feet of direct ocean frontage just south of Nicholson Point, with the home’s rooms all positioned to take advantage of the whitewater views.

“Vista Del Mar embodies all that we love about California Coastal estates.”

Public records indicate current ownership of the property lies with the family of Jack Londen, a Phoenix-area insurance baron, TV station owner, and onetime Arizona gubernatorial candidate. Londen passed away in 2015 at the age of 85.

The estate carries an assessed tax value of $14.3 million, with an attendant annual property tax bill of $168,000. The majority of the value is attributed not to the home ($6 million) but the land it sits upon ($8.3 million).

Vista Del Mar was first listed for sale in April 2016; at that time it carried a price tag of $26,588,000. After four price adjustments in the ensuing ten months, the current asking price is set at $22.5 million.
