San Diego’s Newest Urban Luxury: Oceanside Terraces

Share

by Roberta Murphy

Oceanside Terraces
Oceanside Terraces

For 11 days straight, we have been working in a makeshift sales office at Oceanside Terraces, the new luxury midrise residence in downtown Oceanside.

The office consists of a small table, two plastic chairs and a 2-drawer filing cabinet. Cardboard is taped over the lobbys travertine floors, and we have to compete with workers for elevator space. Theres no coffee maker, no copier and even paperclips are in short supply.

And nobody’s complaining.

We think we are in heaven, because we are dealing with amazed guests and interested buyers all day long. Many step off the new Sprinter train next door, having come for a day trip from inland Escondido, Valley Center, San Marcos or Vista. They cant resist checking out Oceansides version of luxurious high rise living. Others come from Los Angeles, Orange County, North Dakota, Connecticut, Manhattan, Tucson, Las Vegas and Scottsdale and are no less amazed.

The most excited guests, though, are Oceanside residents, who watched the construction of Oceanside Terraces over the last few years

They understand the significance of this six-story multi-use building with prime retail on the first floor, offices on the second, and residences and penthouses on the fourth through sixth floors. They know that downtown Oceanside is becoming a walkable community and is on its way to becoming a shining model for urban living. They also know they have 3.5 miles of great beaches, a balmy year round climate and some of the friendliest people in San Diego County.

They are also savvy and know that Oceanside Terraces offers the coastal urban lifestyle so many buyers are seeking:

  1. They want spacious single level homes large enough for guests, entertaining and long-term living.
  2. They want close proximity to the beach. (How about 400 yards?)
  3. They want a walkable community that offers fine dining, shopping, museums and farmers markets.
  4. They want secure buildings, adequate covered parking and large lockable storage for bicycles, surfboards and other toys.
  5. They want to be close to public transportation. (How about a train and transit center on the adjacent block?). They want an easy train ride to downtown San Diego to see Padres games, San Diego Civic Center theater productions, or perhaps enjoy dinner or a day in San Diegos Old Town or Gaslamp District. The appeal of more distant travel also beckons as a possibility with Amtrak.

And though it may surprise some of the real estate doomsayers and bubble bloggers, we are happy to report that the Oceanside Terraces are selling. So far this week, we have reservations from one Carlsbad and two Oceanside families. Others are returning for second and third visits.

Oceanside Terraces offer floorplans that range from 1730 to almost 2600 square feet. Prices range from the high $600s to $1.7 million and many boast sparkling ocean views.

We may not be able to offer you a cup of coffee, but please feel free to stop by 301 Mission (at the corner of Cleveland) and well happily show you what Oceanside Terraces has to offer. We are open 7 days a week from 11-4.

And if you can remember, please bring a few paperclips with you.

Tucked away between the Pacific Coast and Buena Vista Lagoon, is a beachside oasis named Saint Malo. This coastal colony has remained one of the best and longest kept secrets in Oceanside. As the first gated community in San Diego, it has maintained an impeccable reputation of exclusivity and prestige since it was developed in 1929. Its design and architecture were inspired by an island village found near the coast of Brittany, France and many have described it as walking through a storybook or fairytale. Luxurious amenities of Saint Malo include five tennis courts, beach volleyball court, sandy beach, and cabana clubhouse. This marvelous family compound has everything you need to live in luxury, yet enjoy the laid back lifestyle of living at the beach. This is the only pool home in all of Saint Malo, and a beautiful one at that with a vanishing edge of flowing salt water. An expertly designed floor plan is built around the centerpiece courtyard and pool, the pinnacle for indoor/outdoor living. This home lends itself to adapting to each and every use, whether it’s entertaining for many, a calming meditative sanctuary, multi generational living, or an inspiring workspace. It’s impossible not to notice the one of a kind features that went into this home, some of the most notable include Douglas Fir timber planking, antique Tassie Oak imported from an Australian school house, antique chandeliers, antique repurposed doors, Kolbe windows, custom Clive Christian cabinetry and 5 gas starter fireplaces throughout. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight, no expense was spared in the remodel to include two Miele dishwashers, Hestan duel fuel 5 burner range with griddle, Subzero 36” with 2 drawer bottom freezer, Miele Speed oven, Miele conventional oven, walk-in pantry, and Carrara marble covering the countertops. In 2008, a vast owner’s suite overlooking the lagoon was added, with every amenity an owner could dream of. Two separate bathrooms part of this addition feature a BainUltra Champagne Bubble Bath, steam shower, and heated bathroom floors. There are so many things to do and enjoy all on property including your own movie theater with auto recline seats, a Koi pond on your private patio, a detached guest house with craft room/art studio, and plentiful gardens that surround. Behind the glamour of this home, it is also equipped with modern and functional components such as owned solar panels, two tankless water heaters, water purifier, 3 AC units with added mini split AC in detached guesthouse, two laundry rooms, and wired security system.
