This sculptural masterpiece, designed by Wallace Cunningham in collaboration with the original owners, exudes a simple elegance showcasing walls of glass and 100-year-old redwood beams. Enjoy contemporary design and single-level living from 1.3 acres of meticulously landscaped gardens by Joe Yamada where the outside is brought into each room. Ocean views to the west overlook the tennis court. Walk or drive down to Blacks Beach with your own key, visit nearby Torrey Pines Golf Course or The Hotel Estancia.

Welcome to Brushstroke, where timeless elegance and the iconic contemporary architecture of Wallace Cunningham converge to create an unparalleled work of art. Walled and gated providing an exceptional level of privacy, this distinctive residence rests in an extraordinary 1.3-acre setting surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and romantic gardens overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Aesthetically pleasing in every regard, the spectacular, single-level floor plan is sophisticated yet simplistic in its design. A dramatic, curvilinear roofline, hand-tinted plaster walls, and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass flanked by 100-year-old reclaimed redwood beams contribute to the Zen ambiance and evoke the feeling of being at one with the environment. French limestone flooring found throughout the interior extends to the expansive decks encompassing the home. Exceptional living areas, highlighted by a floating fireplace, separate the magnificent master suite with an office from the two secondary bedrooms.

The one-of-a-kind, infinity-edge pool was expertly crafted to maximize the reflection of light, as well as the soothing sound of water cascading 14 feet down into the tranquil pebble garden positioned under the raised residence. Enjoy a match on your own private tennis court while taking a moment to appreciate the sheer natural beauty that surrounds you. Located in the highly coveted neighborhood of La Jolla Farms, where homeowners have exclusive access to the private road leading down to Black’s Beach, and you are just a short distance to UCSD, freeways, The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, and the Torrey Pines Golf Course.
