Looking for a seaside residence with an impressive architecture pedigree? Check out this four-bedroom, eight-bath oceanfront home in La Jolla, California. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice Frederick Liebhardt in 1958, the house is located above Windansea beach, an iconic surf spot made famous in the 1960s in Tom Wolfe’s nonfiction collection The Pump House Gang.
Liebhardt designed the home as a personal residence for his mother, and the house has seen two subsequent renovations—one remodel by midcentury modern architect Henry Hester and a more recent one by Hill Construction and NYC designer Eddie Lee. The house is now 6,338 square feet with a stunning A-frame living room.
Huge walls of glass provide unobstructed ocean views, and the way the home is situated on its one acre lot means that you can’t see your neighbors. White oak floors lead to multiple decks for entertaining, and a colorful kitchen includes stools and chairs designed by Ettore Sottsass for Emeco and a bright blue and white color scheme. Originally listed in March 2019 for $18,900,000, 6266 Camino De La Costa is now on the market for $14,900,000.
