Discover the San Diego real estate pick of the week in La Jolla.
This European inspired chateau nestled in the hills of La Jolla currently belongs to world-renowned artist, Maher Marcos, best known for his contemporary paintings of women and landscapes. Marcos's artistic flair is displayed throughout the home, with his own paintings adorning many walls, along with decorative stone-carved angels and gargoyles, some serving as pillars throughout the custom hand-carved cabinetry.
All of the doors are distressed pieces of solid wood, accented with minor iron details and beautiful stained glass windows. In the ground of the main entrance foyer, an iron knight has been engraved, leading downstairs to an extraordinary tunnel-like hallway covered with cobblestone. The lower level of the home features a medieval-style gourmet kitchen, with top of the line appliances, including an onyx sink and a dumb-waiter leading to a deck kitchen upstairs.
Fountains are a common sight in the home. There is a fountain set in each courtyard, and a small fountain sits along one of the kitchen windows. Stunning ocean views can be seen from each balcony and terrace in the home.
This La Jolla home is approximately 4000 square feet in size, and sits on approximately 8625 square feet of land. There are four bedrooms and four lavish bathrooms, with freestanding, old-fashioned bathtubs and walls covered with stone from top to bottom.
Previously featured in an issue of DreamHomes Magazine, this La Jolla home is an entertainer's delight. Two outdoor kitchens, multiple courtyards, spacious living rooms, and impeccable views are just the beginning.
