A newly-completed home in La Jolla, California, is coming to the market for $32.5 million on Wednesday, Mansion Global has learned.
The cliffside, waterfront estate, known as the Ora House, was designed and developed by Blue Heron, a Las Vegas-based firm.
The company bought the land in La Jolla’s Bird Rock enclave in 2016 for $4.675 million, said Tyler Jones, founder and CEO of Blue Heron.
“The reason we chose this site is because of the incredible waterfront line,” he said, “It curves around, so the site not only has expansive Pacific Ocean views, it’s also a more intimate engagement with the coastline.”
Blue Heron brought a biophilic design philosophy to the contemporary house, which uses heat-treated ash wood and other organic, environmentally conscious materials, Mr. Jones said.
The three-level house spans 8,878 square feet with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, according to the listing with Brett Dickinson of Compass and Deborah Greenspan of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.
“The Ora House’s iconic architecture, brilliant siting and deft application of biophilic design differentiate it from all other waterfront properties along the coast,” the agents said in a joint statement. “All three facets work in harmony to provide a truly unique visual and sensorial experience that can never be replicated on the water.”
Throughout, the estate features distinct combinations of the four elements of matter—water, earth, light and fire, the agents said.
Accessed over a floating bridge, the home has an all-glass foyer, an open living area with two water walls, and a primary suite with glass walls to allow for ocean views from every angle, according to the listing.
Outside, the estate has a pool , a roof deck with a covered lounge area and an outdoor kitchen, and a four-car garage, the listing said.
The home is within walking distance to La Jolla’s downtown area and to the beaches for surf and sand, the listing agents said.
