San Diego’s luxury real estate market continues to be red hot, with record home sale prices reported in recent months. Five top-tier listings in Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea represent the pinnacle of life in the ranch and on the coast.

Cardiff Knockout

Every day at dusk, Cardiff locals gather along the bluff on San Elijo Avenue to take in the mesmerizing sunset. It’s a ritual no one takes for granted, and it can be enjoyed nightly without even leaving this one-of-a-kind, ocean-view estate that borders the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve. The compound is comprised of two legal lots with breathtaking lagoon and whitewater ocean views from virtually every room, transforming nature into artwork. Watch the early morning surfers, local osprey fishing for their breakfast, and other wildlife foraging in the lagoon while taking in the calming breezes that flow in off the ocean. With three-plus bedrooms and more than 3,500 square feet of interior living, the home offers ample space and potential for so much more. A separate parcel houses a three-car garage and large ocean-view potting shed with a wraparound deck. A private pool and spa with the lagoon as its backdrop offers the ultimate serenity. The property is listed with the Jason Barry Team of Barry Estates. 858.756.4024, jasonbarryteam.com
