The home at the bottom of 15th Street across from Seagrove Park in Del Mar is an archetype of the best of Del Mar’s past merged with its dynamic current spirit. The building was originally built to match the Tudoresque-style of the Stratford Inn, a world-class hotel that opened in 1909 during the early development years of Del Mar. The former building, now a comfortable home, lived through many transformations during its decades as a guardian to an unobstructed ocean view and Del Mar’s coastline. In 2004, Batter Kay Associates — award-winning, San Diego-based architects — purchased the building and transformed the interior into a modern masterpiece. The exterior was preserved as a Del Mar historical building. The gated estate holds true to its roots while embracing the future.
