Don’t climb the stairs to bed like a schmuck; take the elevator!
The oceanfront estate at 5327 Carlsbad Boulevard is “a fresh, global take on Southern California style, pairing modern amenities with elegant touches.” So say listing materials retrieved from realtor.com.
Built in 2006, the home hosts five en-suite bedrooms spread across more than 6200 square feet of indoor living space. Its half-acre lot includes nearly 75 feet of direct ocean frontage above Terramar Beach, a thin sliver of South Carlsbad State Beach most easily accessed by a locked gate accessible only to local homeonwers.
“Situated cliffside overlooking the iconic Terramar Point surf break,” the property boasts “miles of unobstructed southern views down the coast.” Prospective owners are invited to “enjoy easy indoor-outdoor entertaining” in the home’s “spacious, open-concept” layout.
“A new standard for opulent oceanfront living.”
Passing through a stone arch, “the grand entry with soaring ceilings introduces the main floor,” featuring “a large formal living room with a gorgeous tiled fireplace, cozy family room, immaculate chef’s kitchen with marble countertops, and sophisticated dining room with built-in seating for 12.” The villa’s “expansive windows and folding glass doors extend across the entire floor, opening onto a large oceanfront deck.”
From there, “guests can wander down the outdoor staircase to the pristine lawn, which features a built-in fire pit, oversized spa, and a frameless glass railing to showcase the phenomenal views” of waves that crash into the cliffside below the home at high tide.
A private elevator can be used to bypass stairs to reach the top-floor owner’s suite that includes “a spa-like bathroom, a large walk-in closet, and bright bedroom with a fireplace and secluded ocean view balcony.” The home’s upper level includes three more en-suite bedrooms and a “comfortable loft/reading nook.”
A fifth en-suite guest room is found on the home’s lower level, along with a movie theater, gym, laundry room, kitchenette, wet bar, and a second living room that “boasts panoramic ocean views.”
Other features include a three-car garage with an electric vehicle charging station, “main floor private office, custom wainscoting, bespoke built-in shelving to maximize space, high-end finishes that highlight the home’s natural beauty, and a large storage area for surfboards and beach toys.” The home’s “extraordinary space designed by Intimate Living Interiors brings in ocean-blue hues and natural elements to accentuate the soothing tones of the seascape, creating a modern and peaceful sanctuary to enjoy the surrounding beauty.”
“This incredible home sets a new standard for opulent oceanfront living.”
Public records indicate ownership of the home currently lies with Kim Perell, self-billed as a startup entrepreneur and investor. Perell purchased the home for a reported $8.2 million in a 2016 off-market transaction from Marshall Sylver, a motivational speaker and Las Vegas showman who bills himself as “the world’s fastest hypnotist.” The $8.2 million price tag matches what Sylver paid for the house when it was newly constructed in 2006.
After an eight-month marketing stint in 2013 at $7,995,000 failed to attract a buyer (while Sylver was still the owner), the Carlsbad villa was listed for the first time since its construction in mid-July with an asking price of $11,995,000 that remains unchanged to date.
