ustom built-in 2017, 234 S. Rios in Solana Beach is perched above one of the town’s most coveted streets on a rare ½ acre lot. With 4548 sqft of living space and 654 sqft of second-floor decks unrivaled with ocean views, this estate wants nothing. Architecturally, the property combines coastal Mediterranean style with the functionality and convenience of contemporary Southern California living. The design West-facing home takes full advantage of the area’s natural light and year-round moderate climate. Arched entryways, a tiled roof, high ceilings with intricately patterned exposed beams, a winsome staircase with wrought iron balustrades, and clean and bright white walls with warm-toned French oak wood floors and millwork, give this home its iconic distinction. The second-story kitchen boasts views sought by travelers from across the globe, an oversized farmhouse sink, a Thermador range and oven, Sub Zero refrigeration, and a walk-in chef’s pantry with wood finishes. Sliding glass doors open to the front and rear of the kitchen, allowing for sunrise breakfasts, or sunset dinners, tempered by cool ocean breezes. The kitchen is situated within an open space between two living areas. The rear living area opens to the pool deck and includes a gas-burning fireplace. The front living area opens to a 386 sqft deck and includes a formal dining area. The 320 sqft primary suite similarly features sliding glass doors with a private 268 sqft deck, overlooking the ocean and the property’s front grounds. The primary bath, one of six in the home, offers a meditative sanctuary, replete with tranquil ocean vistas. The focal point of this 210 sqft bath is its freestanding tub, framed quaintly beneath a wood-trimmed window. An oversized, doorless shower, premium finishes, and fixtures, and an adjacent walk-in closet complete this meticulously designed suite. Two additional en-suite bedrooms are also upstairs, with French doors opening to the pool deck. Two more bedrooms are downstairs, one en-suite and opening to the front patio, the other being perfect for a second office or exercise room if desired. A downstairs office features stately built-in alder bookshelves and a hand-blown glass chandelier imported from Morano, Italy. There is a full laundry room toward the rear of the house, near a pool bath/changing room, as well as an 861 sqft three-car garage with epoxy floors and plentiful storage, including a 200 sqft bonus room (not included in the living area sqft). The home contains the best of the 21st century smart, wired world, with automated exterior lighting, security cameras, temperature control, automated gate entry, and much more. Finally, the estate’s tiered grounds complete the indoor/outdoor living experience of this home. A large grass lawn and patio make up the front grounds, which are set back from the street for privacy, and could accommodate an ADU. The backyard features a 14 x 27, pool, with a spa. Low maintenance and environmentally conscious turf make up the back lawn area. A vegetable garden provides for farm-to-table cooking, and firepits in the front and back yards offer comfortable options for unwinding in the evening or gathering with friends, family, and pets.
