Luxury Homes at the Beach? An Urban Assault?
A rarity in San Diego homes for sale are ones that are new luxury homes at the beach.
There are two very special luxury homes under construction just a couple of short blocks from the beach–and directly in the Oceanside redevelopment area. With square footage around 2700 square feet each, these homes are ones that belong to a very green future and should be ready for occupancy late spring/early summer.
Luxury home builder Rick Letourneau of Laguna Beach has been working with UC Davis to implement the greenest and most energy efficient homes possible–and ones that are far ahead of coming governmantal requirements. There is radiant heating and cooling which means no dirty ducting and vents–and which also allows for more voluminous ceilings (even the garage has 12-foot ceilings!). And the residences live almost like single story homes, thanks to the circular plexiglass pneumatic elevators that run from the garage all the way up to the large ocean view decks. There’s abundant natural lighting thanks to energy-efficient turn and tilt windows from Germany and a large circular skylights over the stairways.
The fully equipped gourmet kitchens offer stainless Thermador appliance packages with refrigerators included. There are hidden fire sprinklers, oversized two car garages with alley entrance, obscured glass at key points and three bedrooms, 3.5 baths in each.
Pricing is expected to be in the $1.5 million range–and we expect them to move quickly. If you are interested in a private showing prior to grand opening, call Roberta or Scott Murphy at either 877-818-8197, 760-402-9101 or 760-613-6190.
And what’s this about “Urban Assault Homes?” The builder, Rick Letourneau laughs and sees this as luxury building in a premier redevelopment area– in other words, an assault on blight.
