Set within the exclusive and prestigious La Jolla Farms neighborhood, 2681 Idle Hour Lane, is one of Southern California’s most iconic properties. Located on one of the largest homesites in the community, boasting nearly 3 acres of immaculate gated grounds, this remarkable residence is a sanctuary of peace and privacy, while also offering the extremely rare opportunity to own the highly-coveted Black’s Beach gate key. A beautiful cobblestone driveway leads to the grand estate, featuring a timeless classic architectural style with incomparable quality and design. The main residence and guest house combined offer 9 bedrooms, 14 baths, and over 14,200 square feet of beautifully appointed living spaces. The fully-equipped chef’s kitchen features a stunning oversized butcher block island with seating for six, dual ranges, and a wall of roll-down doors to conceal countertop appliances. Enjoy breakfast with a view in the grand atrium with its glass cathedral ceiling, where you can soak in the sunshine while sipping on your morning tea. With a wood-paneled game room with a library loft, formal dining room, a disco room with mirrored ceilings, and a home theater, 2681 Idle Lane is truly the ultimate family and entertaining home. The sumptuous main-level owner’s suite boasts French doors leading out to the private grounds, and a spa-inspired bath, complete with a unique free-standing glass and gold shower, makeup vanity, and a warming fireplace. Step outside and enjoy a morning yoga flow, while breathing in that fresh coastal air. Reminiscent of a five-star wellness retreat, the secluded grounds truly offer every amenity imaginable, both relaxing and recreational. Expansive lawns and layered foliage lead to your own private lake with an island, surrounded by mature trees, where you can meditate to the soothing sounds of birds chirping and water flowing. The property also features a spacious guest house, private lake with small dock and island, expansive recreation rooms, a full gym, cold plunge, wet and dry sauna rock-climbing arch, and a sparkling pool and spa. With tennis courts, volleyball courts, and a skateboard park, there are endless amenities providing hours of enjoyment. Offering approximately 3,000 square feet of garage parking, there is plenty of room for your prized car collection, as well as your golf cart to head to the nearby Black’s Beach, accessed using the coveted Black’s Beach Gate Key for easy beach access to one of San Diego’s best beaches. While tucked away in the private La Jolla Farms community, there are a number of amenities just a short drive away, including the world-famous Torrey Pines Golf Course, the Torrey Pines Gliderport, and downtown La Jolla Village, filled with top-rated restaurants and world-class shopping. This seaside gated residence has it all; an unbeatable location, immaculate interiors, and the ultimate in luxurious living.
