luxury home in san diego

It is a tough task in relativity to define a luxury home in San Diego.

One’s perspective has as much to do with the definition as does the opulence, location or architectural significance of a particular property. One persons simple home by the ocean is another’s castle, and vice versa.

Perhaps it is easier to consider what a luxury home in San Diego is not.

It is likely not a cookie cutter home in a subdivision tract, even if it is magnificently appointed. Why? It is probably lacking in presence, in architectural originality and may very well be lacking in coveted location.

New subdivisions throughout affluent communities are abounding in 4000 square foot stacked boxes with crown moldings, coffered ceilings and granite surfaces. The prices may reach seven figures, but do they really qualify as luxury homes? I have argued this with other luxury home specialists, and as soon as we agree upon a particular standard, exceptions to the rule emerge.

I am one of several directors with Windermere Exclusive Properties Distinctive Properties division. It is our task to collectively approve or disapprove a listed property for that coveted Premier Properties designation. It has proven to be a sometimes-difficult task. Price alone does not distinguish that status. It is location, property entry, architecture, decor, decadent amenities, entertainment capabilities, lovely grounds and myriad other details that help a home stand out from the ordinary. It can also take a great deal of luxury research.

A super-sized McMansion does not qualify as a luxury home, unless it has the requisite extras, superior location and a view¦perhaps. Or what about cute $2 million cottages in Del Mar, La Jolla or Rancho Santa Fe that lack both architectural clout and luxe surfaces? Does exquisite location make up for a dated or tired interior? Then again, an architecturally significant home in downtown San Diego or Coronado might qualify, even though it lacks in modern opulence.

As discerning, honest–and even developing luxury real estate professionals, we believe we know one when we see it especially when the home has all the markings of luxury, location and panache.
