Welcome to Shangri-La, your personal paradise, where life approaches perfection. Situated overlooking the beautiful and pristine Batiquitos Lagoon, a state marine conservation area that will never be built on, this award-winning architectural masterpiece also commands expansive, unobstructed whitewater ocean vistas through stunning floor-to-ceiling windows or from your 1000+ sq. ft. deck just steps from the pool and spa. The design of the 4100 sq. ft., 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath mid-century modern home was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and Taliesin West and built to harmonize with its natural surroundings, using exotic woods like clear redwood for the exterior and ceilings, teak floors and cabinetry, and mahagony doors and windows, along with poured-in-place concrete, making it impossible to reproduce today. The property also includes a cohesive newly remodeled 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house, also outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular ocean views to enjoy the ospreys, peregrine falcons and the occasional seal, not to mention breathtaking sunsets. There is an adjoining oversized, 2-car garage and a seperate 1-car attached garage as well. This architectural stunner, which has to be seen to be fully apppreciated, has won numerous awards, including the American Institute of Architects Merit award, and it has been described as one of the 10 most architecturally important properties in all of San Diego and Los Angeles Counties. Situated west of the I-5, this property is half a mile from beautiful Ponto Beach, the new Luxury Alila Marea Beach Resort, restaurants, shops, and close proximity to downtown Encinitas!
