Former mayor of Del Mar Albert Corti puts modern mansion up for sale

“A sanctuary of style offering natural light and airy views throughout.”

Make the most of your idyllic outdoor living space with a sunken firepit with seating for 10.

The newly constructed home at 2811 Heather Lane is perched on a hillside just south of San Dieguito Lagoon, the slim body of water separating a neighborhood of high-end luxury estates from the adjacent Del Mar Fairgrounds and horse track.

“With its stunning mix of modern wood floors and ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and contrasting finishes which tie the interior to its exterior decking,” listing materials promise “both intimacy and luxury” to the buyer of the four-bedroom, six-bath, 6115-square-foot modern mansion.

The home’s “modern, clean lines” are on display in “an exquisite U-shaped layout with wrap-around verandas featuring a dazzling lap pool with adjoining spa and a large, sunken outdoor firepit with bench seating for 10” to “make the most of this idyllic outdoor living space.”

Who needs lily pads when you’ve got stepping pads?

One enters the residence after ascending the “graciously curving” custom concrete-and-brick driveway through “a spectacular all-glass and steel front door complemented by sleek glass walls” that make the home “a sanctuary of style offering natural light [and] airy views throughout.”

An open-concept kitchen features a “crisp granite backsplash, with coordinating waterfall island” that continues the stonework to the floor on two sides to go along with “sleek grey built-in cabinetry” and match-faced refrigerator to blend in.

Downstairs,a 600-square-foot media and billiards room beckons, complete with wet bar and gas fireplace, one of several “cleverly set into dividing walls or as focal points” throughout the three-story, elevator-equipped residence.

Glass walls throughout the living areas retract to blend indoor and outdoor living spaces, providing a host of all-weather entertainment venues. The main “deck level” of the home also features a “delightful open-air courtyard, including a koi pond and waterfall, combining wood decking with concrete stepping pads, and flanked by yet another outdoor fireplace for maximum visual appeal.”

Other features include a four-car attached garage, an “outdoor rainforest shower,” and “lush, native Del Mar landscaping to complement the 360-degree views” of the lagoon and Pacific Ocean just a quarter-mile to the west.

“Unique from every angle, this show-stopping home combines warmth with elegance, grace with beauty and private recreation, its design concept ideal for entertaining or unwinding.”

The Heather Lane house last sold in 2014 for a reported $1.88 million, which would reflect only the land value as the home was constructed in 2017. The total land included is just shy of an acre and a half, offering more space and privacy than the home’s beach-adjacent Del Mar contemporaries, though the slope of the lot limits its use.

Title to the property is currently held by a trust controlled by Albert Corti, who served as mayor of Del Mar, San Diego County’s smallest city by population (4363), and for several years as a city councilmember.

2811 Heather Lane was first publicly offered for sale in late March, the asking price of $11,495,000 remains unchanged to date.
