Home of the Month – Following Nature’s Blueprints

Woven harmoniously into an amber sandstone hillside is a quintessential Herb Turner masterpiece in southern Del Mar. Turner — architect, artist and former Del Mar resident — built 18 single-family homes in Del Mar employing his overarching design philosophy known as “terramonics,” which is the harmonious integration of a house and its dwellers with the natural environment. The three-level home blends seamlessly into the landscape; floor-to-ceiling windows frame the Pacific from multiple decks. Freshly remodeled in the spirit of Turner’s original vision, the home is a definitive and enduring contribution to the unique charm and architectural legacy of Del Mar.
