ENCINITAS, Calif. – A luxury home designed by one of the world’s top architects to have sweeping ocean views from every room could soon break Encinitas real estate records — again.

The 6,329-square-foot home at 532 Neptune Ave., known as The Crescent House, went on the market earlier this year for $23.5 million. The property has four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths on approximately a half acre of land. It was originally built for Bud Fischer and his wife Esther, the latter developer once referred to by a San Diego Union-Tribune reporter as “the pioneering tycoon of the Gaslamp Quarter.”

It is currently owned by married couple Eileen Quinn and Lance Williams, who purchased it in 2016 for $11.1 million as a vacation home, setting the community’s local sales record.

In a statement, Quinn offered warm comments about the property, saying: “This house is not just living in a home, it is living in an experience.

You are living in a work of art, in the mind of a genius.Quinn said, referring to architectural designer Wallace Cunningham.

Realtor Lisa Waltman also likes Cunningham and the house, which she sold several years ago with Kelly Howard, both of Compass Real Estate. In fact, Waltman said that Williams toured the house alone and decided to buy before Quinn had seen it.

Speaking by phone with FOX 5, Waltman said that Cunningham, also the mind behind the Razor House in La Jolla, which was reportedly purchased by Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz in 2019, maximized every inch of the property to offer “panoramic views” of the water. .

“There’s so much about it,” Waltman said. “The way it makes you feel transported like you’re not on a busy street. Once you walk in, the walls, the way it has these ramps and curves and views.”

Adds Waltman: “I would say it’s modern, but timeless.”

True to its name, the house is shaped like a crescent moon and wraps around an infinity pool. It has two levels developed with what Waltman called “a tasteful use of materials,” a wraparound interior staircase, and a spacious outdoor patio with 74 feet of ocean frontage, the listing for the property shows.

This home is upside down with all of the main rooms located on the upper level,” Cunningham said in a statement published by Compass. “The intention was to create a path to the top without realizing that you are actually ascending. There are a series of ramps that can be taken, stairs and an elevator – it offers multiple trips.

Each path is designed to protect it from the street and neighboring properties and to open up spectacular views below and through the building.”

The look of the property has previously been compared to Tony Stark’s home in the “Iron Man” movie franchise, but it has also caught the attention of Hollywood in its own respect. He appeared in a third-season episode of the HBO series “Westworld,” filmed at night to give him a cool, moody look, Waltman said.

“If you were to visit, you would see that there is energy and people, but it has a very relaxed atmosphere,” he said.
