This property is located in Muirlands, a La Jolla neighborhood named for someone named Harold James Muir (not the naturalist John Muir). Muirlands is a neighborhood of around 1,000 homes is famed for its stately mansions, ocean views, and towering pine and eucalyptus trees.
The Mediterranean-style showpiece property epitomizes the type of estate found in the neighborhood. The trophy home highlights the Pacific Ocean, La Jolla Village, and the La Jolla Country Club. In 1990 when built, the estate’s design was intended to function as both a living family home and a venue for larger-scale formal events.
The expansive, 40,000 square feet property has a backyard with a flat lawn, a swimming pool, and a front yard with arched wrought iron and glass doors leading to a courtyard. Furthermore, the two-story mansion has a livable interior area of 12,017 square feet with five bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.
The main suite, accessed via stairways or an elevator, takes full advantage of La Jolla’s natural beauty, allowing residents to look into the horizon, bask in the sun’s warmth, or relax under the clear, blue sky.
If you want to view the property in person, you’ll have to abide by certain rules, such as washing your hands (or using hand sanitizer) immediately upon entry, wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and not touching anything.
