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.”
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.
