La Jolla's crown jewel of opulence just hit the market, ready to whisk away its new owner to a life of unparalleled splendor. Welcome to Foxhill Estate, a prestigious property perched royally atop a hill that watches over the posh neighborhood of La Jolla, which is now up for grabs at a cool $37.5 million. Offering more than just luxe living, this historic estate is sprawling across 30 acres of sun-drenched elegance and enchanting greenery, surely tempting San Diego's elite to swing open their checkbooks.
According to a recent article by the Robb Report, the estate, originally constructed in 1959 by journalist and publisher James Copley, invites its guests to explore its grandiose French-inspired main residence, complete with artisanal brick cladding, setting a mood of time-honored dignity. The Foxhill Estate doesn't only boast a titanic 17,000-square-foot main house; it also features an eclectic array of amenities, including a pool pavilion to truly unwind and an eight-car garage, perfectly tailored for the automobile aficionado.
Described by listing agent Ross Clark of Compass as "the most prestigious property for sale in San Diego," the estate is not just a place to call home. It's more of a private sanctuary with "270-degree ocean views, including views overlooking La Jolla Country Club," as stated in the Robb Report article. Its amenities serve to actively entertain, including a tennis court, a racquetball court, and a spa that rubs out all hints of the day's stress.
The details found in the Compass listing highlight the homeowner's suite, reminiscent of a duplex apartment that sprawls two stories high. A gallery encircles the suite’s second floor, where the walls are waiting to showcase vast collections of art. Outside, one can find ample terraces, many offering sweeping views to comfortably gaze upon the ocean's endless horizon. It comes as no wonder then, that such a property encapsulates a lifestyle of royalty, or as an opportunity to develop and share the estate's lush parcels so others can also enjoy this slice of paradise.
Whether seeking to bask endlessly in leisure within its 10 bedrooms, 9 baths, and additional 5 1/2 baths, or to host illustrious parties as the Copley family did notably with President Nixon as a guest, the Foxhill Estate is an emblem of San Diego's luxury real estate market. And for those ready to dive into the life of affluence, Foxhill promises more than just a place to rest one's head—it's an offer to become a part of La Jolla's lavish lineage.
