It’s known as the Razor Residence and it sold for $20,800,000. Directly next door is another opportunity to buy an architectural marvel with drop dead gorgeous views over Black’s Beach. This spectacular 8,600 square foot residence was designed by architect Ken Ronchetti and built in 2003 for the current owner. It first hit he market in October of 2018 for $19,500,000 and has since been reduced to $18,500,000. Occupying its own sea bluff and nestled between sandstone and verdant canyon terrain, this idyllic oceanfront setting is exceedingly private. Commanding views of the ocean, sunsets and sandy beach below through voluminous walls of glass are paired with copious outdoor terraces which only enhance the continuity to it’s natural environment. The main house includes vast open rooms with expanses of glass, a gourmet kitchen and spectacular ocean view master suite with disappearing walls, private terrace and glass-walled shower with views. The architect made use of every square foot of the 1.19 acre site. A private gated driveway leads to a 1,071 square foot three-car garage and motor court. In addition to the main house, there is also a one bedroom guest house and studio surrounding the swimming pool and nearly 3,000 square feet of stone terraces, decks and balconies.
