Rarely are we graced by an extraordinary estate such as La Casa Blanca…a grand Mediterranean residence resting upon an exceptionally private, half-acre setting consisting of 5 bedrooms, 7.5 baths plus a library, sweeping southwesterly views, a breathtaking backyard with a pool and spa, a 3-car garage plus a motor court, all in a coveted Mount Soledad location.

The charming cook’s kitchen, with its large center island and abundant storage space, provides easy access to the beautiful breakfast room, family room and the formal dining room. One of two en suite bedrooms located on the entry level has been modified to allow complete handicap-accessibility, including a large stall shower, separate entrance and an exterior door leading to a large grassy yard. A barrel vault ceiling leads you into the romantic master suite offering a sitting room and wet bar, 3 balconies plus a tranquil deck, his & hers walk-in closets and his & hers baths. Views of the city, bay and ocean can be enjoyed from the upper level, as well as a large rooftop deck. Affording a feeling of seclusion second to none, the entertainer’s backyard boasts voluminous hedges, sprawling lawns, romantic rose gardens, and expansive patios surrounding the sparkling pool and spa.
