2055 Seaview Avenue, Del Mar, 92014

Beds: 6

Baths: 6

Current Owner: Mark Van Oene

List Price: $8,800,000

“It’s getting harder to find a property like this,” warn listing materials for the “magnificent Del Mar Craftsman estate” constructed in 1997 at 2055 Seaview Avenue.

The home, located on a half-acre hillside lot less than a third of a mile from the ocean, contains six bedrooms and six baths spread across over 5500 square feet of living area, offering “unobstructed panoramic white water ocean views from almost every room.”

Luxury finishes include Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, exposed-beam ceilings, an “expansive gourmet kitchen with large prep island, high end appliances, walk-in pantry and granite countertops,” and dual master suites. The primary master includes a 300-square-foot main room with dual walk-in closets, heated marble floors in the bathroom, walk-in shower with separate Jacuzzi tub, and an attached office.

Heated marble floors in the bathroom

Covered porches on the main floor and upstairs balconies “are ideal for sitting and relaxing while watching the blue Pacific.”

One of five fireplaces on the property

Landscaping in the backyard provides a little privacy to the patio area with built-in grill and outdoor stone fireplace (one of five on the property) that makes extensive use of smooth river rock, a motif that carries throughout the exterior. The backyard pergola offers “an ideal space to enjoy the beautiful gardens,” but the centerpiece of the yard is the saltwater pool and spa with rocky waterfall.

Car enthusiasts and frequent hosts will appreciate “more parking than most Del Mar homes,” with two dual-car garages each accessed by a private driveway allowing parking for another six cars in total.

Public records indicate the Seaview home is owned by Mark Van Oene, a senior vice president at Illumina, a University City biotech. His family purchased the home in May of 2015 from motivational speaker and sales coach Michael Bosworth for a reported $5,775,000, well below the $6,699,000 Bosworth sought at the time.

A year later, the estate was offered for rent, carrying a monthly price tag of $30,000. That price was later reduced to $15,000, but there were still no takers. Less than two years after its most recent sale, Seaview was back on the market in mid-February with an asking price of $8.8 million, a markup of more than 50 percent from its 2015 sale price.

You have to wonder how the buyer will use all that garage space. A typical San Diegan fills at least half of the space with junk that would usually be better thrown out. And then the car sits outside, baking in the sun and getting a daily dose of dew, a combination that rapidly results in peeling and fading paint. If you pay that much for a home, do you park clunkers in the garages? Hardly seems worth it. So, maybe there is then an incentive to get a family fleet of expensive luxury or sports cars to make use of it all. Ahh, the problems of the rich.

If you can afford that house, you don't drive a clunker!

I have a friend that lived in a small apartment and for 20 years paid for two storage units. She would move “winter” and “summer” clothing and other stuff around. She did not have a garage, but still keeping stuff in storage that long is a waste of money. If you don’t use clothing in three years or other things, it’s prudent to get rid of it rather than pay thousands in storage year after year.
