In early March, the home at 4130 Calle Isabella was put on the market with a listing price of $55 million.
The home is being sold through Smith Group Real Estate by Tim Smith.
“If you went from La Jolla to Montecito, this is one of seven properties with more than 450 feet of ocean frontage,” Smith said. “You’re behind dual gates, Cypress Shores and then another gate to get into the property.”
The Western White House, which former President Richard Nixon used as a vacation getaway, is two houses over. The home sits on the very southern tip of San Clemente, and south of it is only preserved land.
“Very rarely do (homes like these) come on to the market,” Smith said. “The thing that’s so authentic about it is it’s an old-world house; it’s got these beautiful cypress trees and it’s a house that has architecture and a sense of continuity. There’s something about it that’s almost like a retreat.”
The home has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three half bathrooms, 12,765 square feet of living space and sits on a 114,665-square-foot lot (2.632 acres). It was built in 2007 by general contractor Rick Henderson and architectural design was done by James Glover Home Inc.
In the past, San Clemente High School benefit events took place at the home.
“If you’re looking for the ultimate estate and like to surf, you have access to the surf community just steps away from your house, which is pretty unique,” Smith said.
As of Wednesday, the home was still on the market.
