Located in the beautiful, picturesque residential area of Sunset Cliffs, sits a luxurious, 1927 Spanish Eclectic style home: 1004 Devonshire Drive. This spectacular 5 bedroom plus library, 3½ bath home, located on a 17,400 square foot corner lot, is truly a historical property, having been given the esteemed Mills Act designation, and providing a generous property tax reduction.
Upon stepping foot onto this magnificent property, the eye is immediately drawn to the unique character and attention to detail, both inside and outside the home. From the red Mission tile low pitched roof that stands out against the white stucco exterior to the front gated patio complete with a beautiful fountain, this home has been carefully restored to maintain its original charm and character, while still offering many upgrades and amenities that create a luxurious feeling throughout the home.
Once inside the two-story, approximately 5,000 square foot home, an abundance of natural light shines through the many dramatic, arched doors and windows, highlighting the original wood and tiled floors and creating an open and airy living space. The living room has original ironwork around the arched entries and beautiful high barrel ceilings, a dramatic 1927 fireplace, and large mahogany wood framed windows that look out towards the ocean.
The recently designed, top of the line kitchen not only offers large windows with ocean views, but comes complete with beautiful, leatherized granite and African wood counters, Moroccan cabinets, and state of the art appliances, such as the La Cornue range, making it the perfect place to create your very own culinary masterpiece! The large Family Room across from the Living Room has beam ceilings and a fireplace and looks out to the foliage and front patio area.
Additionally, there is a Media room, with a magnificent Moroccan-style fireplace with full length sliding glass doors that open out to the perfect space for outdoor entertaining. A built-in barbecue, fountain and spa with a Peacock design mural behind it, make this outdoor space great for both entertaining others and relaxing to the peaceful sounds of nature. To each side are private garden areas, and plenty of lush, landscaped backyard for family and guests to enjoy!
Upstairs, there are four large bedrooms. The two bathrooms, and laundry room have gorgeous Moorish tiles and cabinetry, each with their own unique design. The master suite has a beehive fireplace, walk in closets and big picture windows that offer gorgeous ocean views. The extensive balcony, just off the bedroom, is the perfect place to sit back and unwind after a long day, watching the gorgeous San Diego sunsets and taking advantage of the amazing, Mediterranean-like climate year round.
Nearby is the 68 acre Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, which offers beautiful walking paths above the Pacific Ocean, where you can take in exquisite sunsets and watch the many surfers below catching waves. Sunset Cliffs is also close to the airport and downtown, however they feel as if they are worlds apart.
This property is filled with history, character and charm, all while being so close to the ocean, truly making it the perfect place to call home!
