San Diego At the southernmost tip of Del Mar a secluded home sits atop an ancient sandstone cliff 100 feet above the sea. Insulated from all other residences nearby, it overlooks the coastline southward to Torrey Pines State Beach and the tip of La Jolla. In the distance hang gliders drift in the wind, pods of whales journey by and dolphins frolic in the surf as the mesmerizing seasons of the sea progress. Cocooned into a cove of sandstone cliffs, the home is a singular masterpiece that weaves luxury, architecture and seclusion into one transcendent tapestry.
