As a true lifestyle destination the beach community of Cardiff is a sought after gem along San Diego’s northern coastline. It’s the epitome of the SoCal laid back lifestyle where homeowners can walk to the best shops, restaurants and beaches San Diego has to offer. You’ll find the best donuts in town at VG’s, addictive breakfast burritos served up at Pipes Café and the freshest organic produce at Seaside Market! Cardiff has an unmistakable vibe that you feel – from the runners and bikers zipping up and down Highway 101 to some of the world’s best surf spots at The Reef and Swamis.
This is the ideal setting where we find Cardiff’s hottest new property – a meticulously remodeled single level ocean view home in the renowned Composer District! When the owners bought an old, rundown property on one of Cardiff’s best streets, they had a vision for transforming it into the coastal contemporary you see today. The property was stripped back to about 600 square feet and then built out to just under 2400 square feet with an amazing open floor plan that’s perfectly designed for its westerly orientation. The owners selected high end finishes and fixtures that exude luxury and comfort, including wide plank White Oak hardwood flooring, Quartz vanities with stone backsplashes and custom shaker cabinetry. The spectacular kitchen is highlighted by a 5-burner Italian made Bertazzoni gas range, Taj Mahal quartzite countertops and a farm style porcelain sink.
The west facing Master Suite is bathed in natural light and has with a fresh, bright master bathroom complete with a walk-in shower finished in a patterned Marrazzi tile. But what really sets this property apart is the indoor/outdoor design centered around a great room that seamlessly opens to a patio deck by a series of fold away doors. The home is perfect for entertaining family and guests with open sight lines from the kitchen out to the deck and the back yard. But to really take in the ocean and sunset views it’s a few steps up the side of the house to a huge rooftop view deck, which offers another great spot for outdoor dining or an evening retreat.
It’s rare these days to find a single level custom home built to such exacting standards, and one look at 1386 Rubenstein will tell you that the owner’s vision for this unique home was brilliantly brought to life. This ocean view home in Cardiff is unlike any other.
