Iconic La Jolla Farms Mansion Hits the Market

One of the most iconic properties in La Jolla, California, has just hit the market. Listed by Amber Anderson of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, this stunning seaside residence is truly one of a kind. The private, double-gated entry leads to one of the largest homesites in the prestigious community, nearing three acres in size. 

Originally built for the founder of Cobra Golf, Thomas Crow, by famed architect Mark Christopher and builder Sharrett Construction, the home was then sold to American billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Ted Waitt, co-founder of Gateway, Inc. Deciding to renovate the residence, Waitt hired Island Architects of La Jolla to oversee and execute the remodel, creating a timeless masterpiece, beautifully blending a classic architectural style with incomparable quality and design, while incorporating the adjoining lot. With the main residence and guest house combined offering nine bedrooms, 14 baths, and over 14,200 square feet of beautifully appointed living spaces, this property is the crown jewel of the community. 

"There is just so much attention to detail in this home, from the cobblestone driveway reclaimed from a Manhattan bridge close to 61st street; to the sleek interiors, highlighted by the rich dark wood flooring and soaring vaulted ceilings, every space has been meticulously designed," states luxury agent Amber Anderson.

Luxurious interiors include expansive living and family rooms, ideal for both entertaining and intimate family gatherings, a sumptuous owner's suite, a fully-equipped chef's kitchen with an oversized butcher block island and a grand atrium with its glass cathedral ceiling, allowing the sunshine to filter through. Complete with a wood-paneled game room with a library loft, formal dining room, a disco room with mirrored ceilings, and a home theater, it is the ultimate entertaining home.

Outside, the property is truly reminiscent of a five-star wellness retreat, with its expansive lawns, private lake with an island,  spacious guest house, multiple recreation rooms, full gym, wet and dry sauna, and sparkling pool and spa. And with a tennis court, a rock-climbing arch, volleyball court, and a skateboard park, this sprawling estate has every amenity imaginable.

"Owning this property is truly a rare opportunity. Not only do you get a stunning property and unbeatable location, but you also get the exclusive Black's Beach gate key, providing direct access to one of San Diego's best beaches," says Amber Anderson.
