8445 La Jolla Shores Drive, La Jolla, CA

Active

$3,900,000

Overview

Almost 16,000 sqft of gated and hedged privacy in the highly walkable flats of La Jolla Shores near shops and restaurants and only five homes from the water. The 16,000 sqft is comprised of a 9,723 sqft buildable lot plus approximately 5,000 sqft of permitted and exclusive-use city street setback serving the property as additional yard space between the home and the street. With 100' of frontage, the lot is set above street level, providing an opportunity for phenomenal west and southwest white water and sunset views if one were to build up, especially from a panoramic roof deck. The elevation can also enable over 2,000 sqft of below-grade garage in addition to F. A. R. of a new two-story home. The existing postwar beach cottage is well maintained and features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a detached 2-car garage. There is over 90’ feet of separation from the street, tall hedges enclosing the property, and rare backyard privacy from the distant low profile modern home to the east. Highly desirable La Jolla Shores location offers a quick stroll to Scripps Memorial Pier, multiple parks, La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, water adventure rental shops, and many cafes and eateries.
