At first view, this is obviously a home of substance. Driving up past the colorful landscaping, there's so much to take in... A portico entry, cathedral windows in a two-story tower and huge bay windows looking out on an expanse of the bay that will take your breath away. Stepping through the custom front door, you realize that every room supports a first impression of superior building materials as well as craftsmanship you don't often see in today's homes.

Of course, in a home of this quality you'd expect cherry wood cabinets, slab granite and travertine countertops, slate and hardwood floors they're all there. But it's the unexpected details that make this home rise to the top. Hand crafted/pounded copper fireplace, unique slate/cherry wood design floor in the living room, transom windows, custom bronze hardware, artist's shed, finished basement and a panoramic view from the "crow's nest" hot tub. Whether you love walking to the beach or just enjoying the views from one of the many patios, this home is an opportunity to live the La Selva Lifestyle.
