La Jolla’s “Street of Dreams”

Curve along the sea cliffs of Lower Hermosa

It’s not just a home, it’s a haus.
It’s not just a home, it’s a haus.

5850 Camino De La Costa | La Jolla, 92037

Current owner: Madeline Artman | Listing price: $13,595,000 | Beds: 4 | Baths: 5 | House size: 5139

Camino de la Costa, which curves along the sea cliffs in the Lower Hermosa neighborhood of La Jolla, has long been referred to as the “Street of Dreams” by real estate agents and the lucky few privileged to own one of the avenue’s $10 million-plus homes.

“Sea Cliff Haus,” as listing materials retrieved from Zillow refer to the residence at 5858 Camino de la Costa, is billed as “arguably one of the best oceanfront modern homes in Southern California.”

Black balusters adorn the white flight of stairs.

“Perfectly positioned atop an oceanfront bluff,” the listing continues, our selection this week “is a contemporary Mediterranean home that takes advantage of its breathtaking panoramic views across the Pacific Ocean.” Privacy from the street is provided by “a lush façade of mature landscaping and elegant wrought iron gates.” Once on the grounds, we’re confronted by a massive pair of 22-foot frosted-glass-and-wrought-iron entry doors that allow us to look straight through the house from the entry to the ocean beyond the back patio.

Inside, the home is very white. A white grand staircase is contrasted by more black wrought iron on the balusters and complemented by a domed skylight. The entry gives way to the main floor’s living and dining areas, both with white tile floors, white walls without much adornment, and furniture that’s mostly white or off-white. The “chef’s kitchen” is “highlighted by an 18-foot waterfall island” that is also white (with grey streaks) and includes bar seating for four. There appears to be quite a bit of cabinetry in here, and while the upper wall cabinets are white, the lower cabinets supporting the counters are black for contrast. There even appears to be a bank of cabinets under the bar, though those may be a little difficult to reach.

Now that we’ve seen the main level, we can travel either up or down. The lower living area includes “a fully equipped wet bar, wine vault, and plush living space” that “opens to the dazzling patio set alongside a grassy yard and infinity edge pool with spa.” Going upstairs instead (via that fancy staircase or the private elevator) will lead us to find the primary suite among the “four expansive bedrooms and four-and-a-half luxe bathrooms.” The suite, we are promised, “continues to meet the highest level of luxury standards with a spa-grade bathroom complete with dual vanities and water closets, an ocean-view soaking tub, a glass enclosed shower, a custom walk-in closet, a stone clad fireplace, and of course a private patio with sweeping oceanfront views.”

On top of all the whitewashed luxury that Sea Cliff Haus’s “modern lines, high-end finishes, and intricate architectural details” offer, there’s also a two-car garage, two separate laundry rooms, and the aforementioned elevator.

Public records list a Madeline Artman as the owner of the property, which was last sold in 2002, two years before the house’s reported construction date of 2004. The property has been listed for sale several times dating back to 2019, and it’s carried an asking price as high as $15.5 million without attracting a buyer. The most recent listing went live in early June; the current price of $13,595 remains unchanged to date.
