Four leading real estate agents share listings to love, along with 2021 industry predictions

No longer tethered to offices, savvy buyers working remotely are focusing their attention on our region for its idyllic climate, top-rated schools, and overall quality of life.


Featured in Architectural Digest, “Harmony,” as the home is named, is truly one of a kind. Famed architect Wallace E. Cunningham made a conscious effort to open the Rancho Santa Fe structure to the 360-degree panorama and environment, which almost gives one the feeling of living outside. In the entrance courtyard above the front door, a cascading waterfall adds reflections of the architecture and landscape. The 10,000-square-foot, single-level home is solar-powered, as is the 150-foot-long crescent-shaped pool with an infinity edge that melts into the horizon with south-facing views of citrus groves and distant mountains. Enjoy easy living with 4+ generous bedroom suites, a temperature-controlled wine walk-in, and so much more. The home is currently listed at $16,995,000 with Laura Barry and Jim Graves of Barry Estates. 858.756.2266, laurabarryluxuryestates.com

Trending: Buyers continue to seek out home gyms, according to Barry and Graves. With the popularity of at-home workout programs and fitness systems such as Peloton and The Mirror, working out from home has never been more accessible or convenient. 

Once in a generation does a property like this become available. Listed at $18,995,000 with the Jason Barry Team of Barry Estates, the 3,400-square-foot home sits on a rare double beachfront lot with 100 feet of frontage, ideally located on the ultra high-end Solana Beach ocean bluff with panoramic ocean and coastline views spanning to La Jolla. Enjoy incredible sunsets, bask in the warm healing sunlight, and enjoy clean ocean breezes from this walled and gated estate. The home was completely rebuilt in 2010 and now features 4+ bedrooms and 4.5 baths with only the finest materials used. Wide plank German oak floors, a mahogany kitchen center island with top-of-the-line appliances, spa-like master bathroom, outdoor gym, outdoor surf room, small orchard, and producing garden are some of the exciting amenities found here. 858.756.4024, jasonbarryteam.com

Predictions for 2021: COVID-19 resulted in virtually everyone rethinking their concept of “shelter,” says The Jason Barry Team. People evaluated their current home layout, weather, city of residence, schools, commute, and quality of life, with many deciding that the value proposition and conveniences of San Diego are unmatched. With interest rates remaining so low, the team expects the trend to continue this year.

Hollywood glamour meets The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe at this sophisticated, single-level custom home. Ideally located on an elevated lot overlooking the 5th green, this thoughtfully reimagined home manages to be classic, cool, and modern all at the same time. A sprawling entry hall flows to a vast living room which features a voluminous marble fireplace surround. A dazzling all-white kitchen incorporates a center island with all-new quartz surfaces, breakfast bar, butler’s pantry, and a cozy morning room. The stunning primary suite includes a sitting area, fireplace, two spacious walk-in closets, and a jetted tub. The expansive floor plan also offers a well-suited home office with leather alligator flooring, two secondary bedrooms with en suites, a formal dining room with wine cellar, and a casita with a living room, kitchenette, and fireplace. The home is listed at $4,159,000 with Delorine Jackson of Compass. 858.822.9694, delorinejackson.com

Predictions for 2021: The strong momentum of sales from last year continues, according to Jackson. The pandemic has accelerated the demand from buyers seeking more family space as well as work-from-home-office configurations. 

Breathe in panoramic vistas of mountain peaks, shimmering lakes, and ocean scenes from throughout this Renaissance-inspired home in the Rancho Santa Fe community of Cielo. Floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors invite the view in from nearly every room in this light and bright home with a formal great room and an open family room and kitchen with breakfast nook. This perfect multi-generational two-story home encompasses two en suite bedrooms and a designated office downstairs, while two staircases and an elevator lead upstairs to four en suite bedrooms including the master with a balcony and wheelchair-accessible shower. Entertain while looking out over the world in the manicured backyard with built-in barbecue. The home is listed at $2,895,000 with Linda Lederer Bernstein of Compass. 619.884.8379, surfandturfhomes.com

Trending: Buyers continue to be drawn to neutrals and whites, but Bernstein believes the incorporation of bold splashes of color will hold a major appeal this year. Contemporary lines, natural wood with smoother finishes, and burnished brasses and chromes are also popular right now.
