Ocean Front Historic Retreat
You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you enter the Del Mar Ocean Front Historic Retreat. This 1930's home is located directly on the sand and is unique from its vintage Spanish style furnishings to its winding passageways. This rambling home sleeps up to fourteen people in its seven bedrooms. There’s a 3-car garage and extra parking spaces for at least 5 additional cars, so this home is ideal for multiple families or surfers looking for a fun getaway.
The living and dining area is huge and has a soaring ceiling, tall windows and a huge wood burning fireplace. The dining tables seat 12-18 and there’s room for at least eight people to relax in the living room. There’s an upright piano, as well as a table and chair set for playing cards or board games. A bay window with wrap around window seats offers a great view to the beachfront patio and the ocean beyond.
The kitchen has lots of counter space plus two refrigerators and all the small appliances you’ll need for entertaining. The butler’s pantry has handy features like a fold down kitchen table and there’s a washer dryer nearby. Also located on the first floor are two guest bedrooms with two twin beds in each.
Upstairs is a large sun room with a ping pong table. There are five bedrooms on this level; one with a twin and a double bed; a second room with a twin and a double bed; two additional bedrooms each with two twin beds; and a full bathroom with a shower and two toilets. At the front of the house is the master ensuite bedroom with a king size bed, a flat-screen TV and French doors that open onto a private deck with a sweeping ocean view. This room also has a walk in closet. This home is older (1930's) and may smell older (this is normal). The furniture is older and the decor is reflective of a far off era. This home also has very wide railings on the upper floor. Therefore, this home is not suitable for small children, due to the risk of falling from the 2nd floor down to the 1st floor below. Injury and/or death could occur from a fall.
A lifeguard tower is just steps away from the home ensuring a super safe beach experience. The beach is wide and the surfing is great (beach break). This home is within walking distance to fine beachfront dining and fun shopping in the village of Del Mar. Nearby Powerhouse Park provides a spot for a seaside picnic or free weekly concerts in the summer. You can also walk to the Del Mar Racetrack from this home. The world-renowned championship Torrey Pines Golf Course is just a short drive away. If you’re in the mood for communing with nature, you’ll also be wowed by Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where you’ll find a choice of trails to explore, all overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Spending time in this one-of-a-kind home on the incredible Del Mar Beach will create vacation memories to last a lifetime.
