Property Description

Lovingly named La Estrella del Mar in 1925 by Master Architect, Herbert Palmer, 306 Sea Lane is truly a treasure to behold! Situated on a coveted corner lot in La Jollas historic Beach Barber Tract neighborhood, just steps from the sand, this landmark Spanish home was meticulously restored in its entirety in 2005 by its current owners along with Trip Bennett, AIA and Grunow Construction, who carefully preserved and honored the homes historicity while providing modernizations for everyday living. Elegance welcomes you as soon you enter the home and discover the arched passageways, solid walnut plank floors, beamed ceilings, plaster walls, antique Puebla tiles, and original woodwork that follow you throughout. Herbert Palmers signature blend of indoor and outdoor living can be found throughout this beloved home with access from nearly every room to a courtyard, patio, balcony, or private outdoor space. Perfectly designed for entertaining, the main level enjoys a formal living room with wet bar and fireplace at the front of the home, an adjacent dining room with antique brick ceilings and access to the 950-bottle wine cellar, an informal living room at the back of the home with vaulted ceilings and bi-folding collapsible doors that open to the outdoor dining patio and backyard, and the pristine chefs kitchen that is located in the heart of the home with a large center marble island and access to the interior courtyard through custom iron French doors beneath original carved beams. Make your way up the original, hand-carved spiral staircase in the formal living room to the immaculate primary suite with ocean views through the bank of west-facing windows, a fireplace, walk-in closet, and spa-like bathroom with a Beaumanire limestone walk-in, steam shower and a separate Kallista clawfoot bathtub. Two additional generously-sized bedrooms can be found upstairs with a shared hallway bathroom as well as a private ocean view deck with a cozy, built-in sectional and outdoor speakers, providing an idyllic setting to watch the sunset. The fully-walled property is believed to be the only property in all of San Diego County that is built directly to the lot line on all 4 corners, utilizing all square footage and providing for spacious courtyard and backyard spaces. The private backyard features a large grassy area with surrounding gardens, an arched outdoor shower with Talavera tiles and an arbor with flowering yellow trumpet vines, a picturesque outdoor living space atop an elevated terrace with hanging star pendant lights and access to the detached two-car garage, as well as a fully-plumbed masonry outbuilding, which is believed to be the former staff quarters, that has been transformed into an art studio and gardening workshop. There are countless unique and historic details to take in as you make your way through this cherished home, as if each room has its own story to tell of its rich, nearly-100-year history with only a handful of owners. 306 Sea Lane is an exceptionally special property that presents a rare opportunity to own a piece of La Jolla history and to continue writing its story with new memories for years to come.
