Welcome to 407 Westbourne located just steps away from the world famous Wind’n’sea Beach in La Jolla California. This charming 2,800 square foot three bedroom three and a half bath single family home with detached casita boasts charming Spanish influenced architecture and is within easy walking distance to the La Jolla Village – home to some of the finest restaurants, shopping and art galleries in all of San Diego.
This private residence is impeccably maintained and has interiors designed by renowned artist and designer, Dana Balaban. Once inside the front gate, you will enjoy a well-landscaped courtyard with a bubbling fountain serving as a focal point and a seating area to soak in the afternoon sun.
The first level of this two story home has floors of stone with a inviting fireplace in the living room opposite two sectional sofas that easily convert into a sleeping area for four complete with Tommy Hilfiger comforters and down pillows.
Moving into the dining room, you will enjoy family meals at a custom, handcrafted table for ten with bench seating and bar area.
The galley style kitchen has the most rare blue and green granite countertops, top of the line stainless steel appliances complete with double oven and warming drawer, and large walk-in pantry behind a custom stained glass door. Just above the pantry is the front gate monitor for your added security. With service for 10, you will enjoy your family meals in this wonderfully comfortable area.
Just off the dining area is the powder room and a few steps further down the hall is the media room. Enjoy watching your favorite surf movie, baseball game or cable show on a huge built in 65-inch rear screen high definition flat projector. Or, plug in the Karaoke machine and host your own AMERICAN IDOL contest. There’s plenty of room for everyone on a custom built sofa that seats ten comfortably.
Upstairs you will find all bamboo wood floors and two large master suites. The front suite, with its Asian influenced décor, has a queen bed, fireplace, separate seating area with futon chair that converts to a bed, two large closets with plenty of drawer space and views of the pacific ocean. The private bathroom has a tub/shower combination and the same blue and green granite as downstairs.
The other master suite is a bit larger and has a white washed, Tommy Bahama feel. With a California king bed, futon lounge that converts to a bed, TV, and large walk-in closet, you will quickly feel at home. The bathroom is finished in gorgeous stone accents with a large fully enclosed shower. The large casement windows overlook private back courtyard and casita.
And therein lies the real beauty of this residence. Enjoy the best of indoor outdoor living in the fantastic rear courtyard complete with palm thatched covers, eating area, configurable seating including a colorful oversized chaise lounge, fire pit, built in BBQ, outdoor shower and spa.
Walk into the two-car garage with enough room for the largest of SUV’s and go for a ride on one of the eight beach cruisers or bogie boards. All the beach toys are there and available to you and there are plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for you to enjoy your lazy days at the beach. The large front-loading washer and dryer make doing laundry a breeze.
Above the garage is a cozy one-bedroom casita that sleeps three and is appointed with its own kitchenette and bathroom with shower.
This lovely beach home has distributed audio in every room, including the rear courtyard, and is operated by an easy to use hand-held controller from Sonos. You can easily dock your iPod to the system or use one of the built in music sources such as Pandora or Rhapsody. Literally ANY song you wish to hear is at your fingertips. With the controller, it’s simple to adjust the volume in the different rooms and even have separate music playing in each room.
Some additional benefits of this home are central air-conditioning and heat, wireless internet, free unlimited long distance, satellite TV with all the HBO channels, and fax machine and printer.
