Affectionately known as The Chaplin House, this stunning Cape Cod style seaside escape strikes the perfect balance of classic details with contemporary comforts. Built in 1928 and faithfully maintained to uphold the home’s historical integrity and original character.
Experience the Pacific Ocean’s hypnotic serenade of crashing waves and take in magnetic whitewater views that stretch from La Jolla to Dana Point. The house is perched atop one of the largest waterfront lots on Leucadia’s prized Neptune Ave and boasts a highly coveted private staircase that touches down to the sandy beach below.
The open-concept grand room and kitchen are beautifully maintained using original materials wherever possible and tasteful upgrades when appropriate. Carrera Marble countertops, Sub-Zero bar fridge, and a 6-burner Viking range highlight the kitchen’s luxurious appointments. Elegantly finished wood floors complement original V-joint ceilings and custom Eagle Windows that preserve the authentic architecture of the era. A built in, marble-topped desk space for two maintains the timeless feel with custom cabinetry that keeps modern office equipment tucked away out of sight. Upstairs, a generous master and two bedrooms are punctuated by captivating views of the Pacific that invite an intimate connection with the sea. Two full baths are finished with Carrera Marble, dual sinks, opulently deep bathtubs, modern conveniences, and windows filled with views of blue water.
Complementing the exterior, parking for 6 vehicles within the gated court and a detached office/artist’s studio space with whitewater views are comfortably laid out on the property’s generous frontage. Meticulously maintained landscaping connects to a stone and composite deck with multi-tiered entertaining spaces and fire pit that look directly onto one of the region’s premier surf breaks.Cliff-mounted flood lights illuminate the water after dark and ensure that guests never lose sight of the main attraction.
Uniquely nostalgic and undeniably elegant, The Chaplin House is the treasure of a by-gone era that epitomizes the essence of coastal living.
