Koi and contrast in Carlsbad

A five-car garage features “gray high gloss marbled porcelain dust free floors.”

Accent fish!

Many people feel that homes are meant to be colorful. Bright, vibrant hues accentuate their rooms and add personality. Flowers add a pop of color to garden beds. Carefully chosen tones and schemes provide warmth and comfort and make the home... homey.

This is not the case at 1095 Hoover Street in Carlsbad, a newly-constructed 8000-square-foot mansion on the northern edge of Agua Hedionda lagoon. Per listing remarks retrieved from Zillow, the home “is surrounded by six-foot block custom black smooth stucco’d walls, similar to the entire black, white, and grey exterior.”

A sturdy stainless steel gate leads to the entry corridor, where concrete walkways flank a koi pond that’s “actually a pebble-tec pool with a custom floating sidewalk that protects the fish from birds of prey and animals,” which is a fancy way to say that the presumably colorful fish can swim under it and not be seen. The custom 10-foot tall mahogany entrance door, is adorned with “stainless and glass sea turtles which are wifi-controlled LED color changing on both sides of the door.”

Despite the color-free theme, the pool was permitted to retain its traditional blue hue.

Once inside, the open floorplan boasts “exquisite white marble high gloss large tile flooring throughout the entire structure,” except for the black granite tile, also high gloss and large format, which is found on the stairways and the walls of the living and dining rooms. “The contrast is stunning throughout both levels of this six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath estate.” More stunning is the contrast between this black-and-white void of this sleek modernist design and the vibrancy of a house where things have color.

“When entering into the kitchen you are drawn to the black stainless steel back wall mosaic extending down the entire wall with a gourmet range and stainless matching hood above,” the listing continues. There’s also a “massive center island” made of marbled porcelain that seats 10 at its bar, along with “solid maple and imported Spanish metal look cabinets” and a walk-in pantry with a wine room that’s effectively a commercial-sized walk-in refrigerator “allowing storage of anything you would normally need to keep refrigerated.”

Every bedroom in the home features an en-suite bath and is equipped with surround sound stereo equipment ready to be integrated with a TV. The largest guest bed even has its own steam room, which remarkably is not the only one on the property.

The home does its best to take advantage of unobstructed westward views of the lagoon and beyond to the Pacific, with glass walled upstairs halls and a view lounge and a series of doors in the living room and kitchen that retract completely into the walls to open the indoor space to the patio and pool area.

Outside a 35,000-

gallon pool features built-in barstools; the home’s roof was designed to protrude a bit and offer shade to portions of the water during the day. Near the hot tub, there’s a dedicated pool bath with shower and a second steam room. The patio features a built-in barbecue and outdoor dining for ten at a marble table “with a fire heated center fireplace.”

Elsewhere, a five-car garage features built-in metal storage cabinets and “gray high gloss marbled porcelain dust free floors only found in the finest car showrooms.”

The compound comprises three lots totaling just over an acre in size. Two were undeveloped in order to ensure the Hoover house had no immediate neighbors, a new owner could choose to landscape them and incorporate the space into the home’s yard or build another pair of houses and sell them off individually.

Public records indicate the property is currently held in a trust and valued at just under $1.5 million, an assessment likely conducted prior to the current estate’s construction. A Theodore Viola guaranteed loans totaling $4.9 million against the property over the last two years, the only person with that name and local ties is listed as the owner of a Board and Brew restaurant (a popular local sandwich chain) in Tempe, Arizona.

The Hoover property was first offered for sale in early February, its asking price of $11,800,000 remains unchanged to date.
