Building on the bluffs of Black's Beach

Several firepit-equipped outdoor entertaining pavilions on both the ground and upstairs level

Retractable walls provide a true indoor/outdoor luxury living experience.
Retractable walls provide a true indoor/outdoor luxury living experience.

Just west of the UC San Diego campus, perched on the bluffs above Black’s Beach lies a newly-constructed 7777-square-foot estate occupying more than three quarters of an acre at 9811 Blackgold Road.

Featuring “vast scale aesthetics both refined and dramatic,” the property’s exclusive La Jolla Farms locale is tucked in where “glorious natural canyon and shimmering sea views come together in a singular stroke of perfection.”

“With awe-inspiring presence matched by the highest level of artistry in the meticulous craftsmanship of materials, this transcendent home embraces its surroundings with walls of glass opening to expansive outdoor terraces.”

Those luxury materials include “monumental custom slabs of book-matched onyx and marble,” so selected because the natural markings from one piece flow into another, creating the appearance of an even larger single slab of stone. The cabinetry in the home was imported from Italy, German oak and limestone slabs line the floors. Exterior walls made of Ipe (pronounced ee-pay, it’s a Brazilian walnut that can stand up to punishing coastal weather) and smooth Santa Barbara-style stucco “are used to dazzling effect in creating this seductive residence.”

The heavy use of custom stone is on display in the open kitchen, where solid backsplashes line the walls and an oversized center island with bar seating for six features stone sides to match the top. A second “messy” galley-style kitchen lies behind with a second range, sink, and prep area. By the dining area, a glass-walled walk-in wine room displays hundreds of bottles against an illuminated back wall of swirling gold.

Rich people have huge closets.

Disappearing glass walls are used throughout the house to create seamless indoor/outdoor living spaces, including in the 350-square-foot second floor master suite that’s also outfitted with a fireplace, a master bath with walk-in rain shower and makeup station, and an oversized closet lined with dark wood built-ins.

“Designed to maximize pleasure, full home automation eases management of ambience with present control settings for audio, climate and electronic systems,” the listing continues to boast about the estate’s advanced technology.

Outside, “lush tropical specimen plantings surround a cascading spring-like waterfall landing in a naturalistic pond while landscaping around the residence is kept manicured and sleek to highlight the magnificence of the structure,” which also offers several firepit-equipped outdoor entertaining pavilions on both the ground and upstairs level, including a private space off the master.

The fully-fenced and gated grounds also include a four-car garage with parking for numerous guest vehicles on the stone-paved driveway.

Finally, the most prized feature to any well-to-do Black’s surfer: a copy of the coveted gate key providing direct access to the beach.

Public records indicate the Blackgold property last sold in 2014 to Kambiz Agahnia, a local real estate investor and developer, for a reported $395,000. There’s probably a zero missing from that price, as at the time the lot contained a five-bedroom mansion constructed in 1987 that was removed to build the current estate.

One attempt was made in the interim to sell the property with the old residence, a 2015 listing at $5,450,000 attracted no buyers, even after the price was reduced to $4,695,000. The newly-constructed replacement home, just completed earlier this year, was first listed for sale in late June with the seller seeking offers between $10,800,000 and $12,800,000,that price remains unchanged to date.
