It's easy to perfect the art of living when you live within a work of art. Built by Robert Lawrence, developer of San Diego luxury residences including Park Laurel and 1Mission, this nearly 5,000 sq. ft. modern architectural home rests peacefully on a canyon rim and artfully combines indoor and outdoor living with panoramic views of Shelter Island, Mission Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. Innovative architecture, premium design finishes and meticulous attention to detail are immediately apparent throughout this modern home by Presidio Park -- a rare style in exclusive Mission Hills. Extensively remodeled by an award-winning, internationally published interior design firm, this modernist estate centers on a stunning atrium and features five spacious bedrooms and four modern bathrooms, four fireplaces (including one outdoor fireplace), a media room with wine bar, three spacious patios, a soothing resort-style pool area complete with cascading waterfall, spa and cabana, and a beautifully appointed chef's kitchen. The chef's kitchen includes an informal dining area and features Sapele cabinets, granite countertops, brilliant slate-and-glass tiled backsplash, and top-of-the-line gourmet appliances. The adjoining gathering room is anchored by a Brazilian slate-and-black granite fireplace. The focus of the nearby formal dining and living rooms are the sweeping vistas of the ocean, brilliant skies and canyon gardens by day, and elegant city-lights views after dark. Found throughout are soaring ceilings with dramatic walls of glass which further enhance the contemporary style of the home, and floors of gleaming rosewood and polished marble are an outstanding accent in this perfect place for entertaining.The entire upper level is a master suite that includes a luxurious master bath and spa, a grand walk-in closet with custom storage cabinetry, a fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls framing expansive wraparound vistas. Views from the master suite are best captured from the elegant private patio that offers a vantage point of the gardens and canyon below, and soothing ocean vistas and evening fireworks beyond. Located in one of San Diego's prominent neighborhoods only minutes from downtown, La Jolla, beaches, destination shopping and dining, this extraordinary home makes a dramatic architectural statement - embodying sophistication, harmony and self-expression.
