Michelle Serafini - Sells Luxurious Homes in La Jolla

Seaside living in San Diego boasts unrivaled benefits.

Ocean waters glistening along a stretch of sandy beaches, rimmed by exquisite sunset views, are part of daily life in coastal San Diego. And those who uncover the rare gems of prime real estate spanning the coast from Cardiff to Del Mar to La Jolla and Coronado are not disappointed with the charm and appeal of the county’s beach communities.

“America’s Finest City” boasts an array of uniquely architectured estates that enjoy the serenade of the rolling Pacific. Many of these gorgeous, retreat-style homes can be found perched on the shores and hills along the cliffs of some of Southern California’s most coveted real estate.

A favorite real estate destination and one of San Diego’s premier luxurious beach-style communities is La Jolla. Michelle Serafini, a certified luxury specialist from Coldwell Banker, knows “location, location, location” is what it’s all about. She is quite familiar with the dynamic culture of La Jolla.

“La Jolla is unique because it is a village within a city,” Michelle Serafini explains.  “La Jolla offers a complete lifestyle from shopping, galleries, dining, education, business and beach. Many La Jollans rarely leave the greater La Jolla area because of its individuality and how the community brings strength to the real estate, not only for the residents who live in La Jolla full-time, but also for the investors who own second and third homes here.”

An example of one of these desired La Jolla properties is a breathtaking ocean-front estate that Michelle Serafini sold last fall. The property lends itself to the scenic views of our amazing coastline along with sweeping ocean vistas to Point Loma and the Coronado Islands. This spacious three-bedroom, three-bath home features two full-sized patio wooden decks overlooking the Pacific, and offers the ultimate in alfresco, beach-side dining.

The home’s contemporary and clean interior showcases floor-to-ceiling bayside windows, successfully bringing the beauty of nature indoors. An open floor plan and vaulted ceilings give a spacious feel, and the expansive kitchen — finished off with granite countertops alongside white-washed cabinetry — is ideal for preparing gourmet feasts while admiring the ocean’s horizon. A private enclosed entryway and a court side patio with fireplace are ideal for entertaining.

On the other side of La Jolla, the historical coastal community of Coronado Islands is renowned for its iconic Hotel del Coronado, where once upon a time, old-Hollywood starlets such as Marilyn Monroe basked on the beach. Surrounded by water, this coveted location possesses some of the most beautiful seaside views available.

Currently on the market is an intimate cottage-style estate that enjoys bay-front patio dining with brick-accented fire pit with encompassing views of the glimmering lights of the downtown cityscape. Jan Clements, Real Estate Specialist from Coldwell Banker, is seeking an owner for this three-bedroom, four-bath home.

As dusk rolls in and the evening night approaches, the panoramic views of the city can be seen from almost every room in this single story beauty. Guests will appreciate the quaint interiors of white-washed vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and hardwood floors throughout the home. The gourmet kitchen offers wood countertops that complement the hardwood floors, and a center island with stainless steel appliances and whitewashed cabinetry. Nestled on manicured grounds, this tranquil oasis is the perfect estate to capture the ambiance of living right on Coronado Bay.

And nothing rivals the thrill of being one of the few in the world who can sit back on their porch and watch the sun set over the beautiful Pacific and “America’s Finest City.”
