    Description

    Historically Designated Del Mar Masterpiece, "Casa Chévere" boasts timeless elegance on over half an acre of breathtaking private grounds. Lush landscaping highlighted by an extraordinarily enchanting tree, serene rose gardens, fruit trees, sparkling pool/spa, pond, fountains and outdoor fireplace. Restoration of original wood floors/beams, coupled with the modern architecture of Bokal & Sneed blends beautifully. Ocean views, detached guest house, parking for 10+ cars. West of I-5, walk to village/beach. Casa Chévere was built in the late 1920’s by Everett E. Ellis, a key contributor to the early development of Del Mar. Rich in charm and elegance, this extraordinary Spanish Retreat remains a signature property in Del Mar's History. One of the most distinctive features of this property is the over-sized, majestic, Morton Bay Fig Tree that stands tall and proud for all to see. It has been said, that this tree is the 2nd or 3rd oldest tree in San Diego County. Original 1920's hardwood floors and ceiling beams remain preserved throughout the home, fused with the modern architecture, flair and renovation of local Architects, Bokal & Sneed. Luxury Home Builders, Steigerwald-Dougherty, mastered a complete renovation, exceeding the expectation of a newly constructed luxury home. The extensive renovation included seismic retrofitting, new foundation in the family room, floor to ceiling glass windows and doors in the family room to bring the outdoors in, enclosing and expanding the detached guest house, new plumbing, piping, electrical, appliances and fixtures, complete pool/spa remodel including piping and re-finishing, all new exterior lighting, landscaping, irrigation and drainage. The property was completely fenced with Wrought Iron and partial wood fencing by San Diego Fence. The driveway was graded and refinished with pavers by Rivcon construction. New HVAC systems including a high energy efficient AC unit was installed in the main house in 2016. The garage, guest house and main house have a high-end dehumidifier system and the house has a water softener system. The kitchen features original hardwood floors and exposed beam ceiling in the kitchen nook, a massive one-slab marble top island, two sinks, two dishwashers, an over-sized sub-zero refrigerator, 6-burner Viking Range, custom cabinets and incredible finishes and design. The floors in the guest house are pavers from the streets of Paris from the 1800's. The guest house includes a kitchenette with sub-zero fridge, convection oven, sink and cabinet space, a generous living room with fireplace, storage, a full bath downstairs and a bedroom and full bath upstairs with walk-in closet and Juliette balcony over-looking the pool and lush landscape. There are several tranquil spaces throughout the park-like grounds to relax and unwind. This property is extremely private, over the top in detail and design, and truly one of a kind. You will not find another home with a private park, ocean views, an all useable/level .53 acres with extraordinary grounds, pool/spa, outdoor fireplace, fully gated, well secured, 10+ parking, enchanting tree, with this much character. This property is unmatched and ready for a true Real Estate Collector!
