Marine Lair

I love stalking real estate listings for places that I travel to and since we are in La Jolla, California I thought I’d share “Marine Lair” with you today. The 3,124 square foot home with 3 bedrooms and 4.5 baths is situated on a tiny 2,560 square foot lot located directly across the street from the beach. The home was built by Andrew Canter, the 34-year-old owner of Canter Companies and real estate investment banker, who spared no expense in designing and building a contemporary beach home (and bachelor pad…he’s single) in one of Southern California’s premier oceanfront communities.

Andrew Canter at Marine Lair

Canter put his development team to the test by informing them that his vision and “…concept was to create something rare and extraordinary in every aspect of the design.” The home is very sculptural in nature and incorporates carefully curated rugged and exotic materials, such as koa wood veneer harvested from Hilo, Hawaii. This isn’t surprising coming from an owner working with a craftsman who spent a lot of time building boats. It feels like a little jewel box on the beach and it can be all yours for $11.8 million. If you don’t have access to that much cash don’t worry…the seller is accepting bitcoin.

A PEACEFUL PARADISE IN CARMEL VALLEY

If you are an architectural enthusiast then the exterior of this modern glass house in Carmel Valley may remind me you of Philip Johnson’s Glass House house in Connecticut, which was actually inspired by the Farnsworth House in Illinois designed by architect Mies van der Rohe. However, this particular glass home in Carmel Valley was designed by Studio Schicketanz and is located in the upscale Tehama development. Tehama was the brainchild of Clint Eastwood, actor and former Mayor and City Councilperson of Carmel-By-the-Sea, California that is comprised of approximately 2,000 acres of land that he began purchasing over 30 years ago. This gated community consists of only 90 lots and a private golf course with membership “by invitation only”. Luckily, much of the land has been preserved in order to maintain the majestic scenery and vast open space ideally located just a few miles from the ocean. It looks like a peaceful paradise to call home.

A FRENCH APARTMENT FOR MODERN LIVING

After a renovation four years ago, Dominique Chevalier and her nine-year-old daughter were able to move into their beautiful apartment located in Lyon, France. It incorporates everything you would expect from a classic 1851 French apartment: high ceilings, tall windows, parquet floors, and intricate millwork. It is a space of grandeur but fit for modern living. It’s definitely the best of both worlds.
