Known as the razor house, this ultramodern cliffside home in La Jolla, CA, isn’t named for its sharp angles. It’s named for where it sits, Razor Point, but the home’s cutting-edge design has made it a local landmark.
It’s now in search of a buyer willing to dance on the razor’s edge with $30 million to spend.
Due to its extreme locale on a steep cliff overlooking the ocean, construction of the home was complicated. Also, permits were required from the California Coastal Commission, which took a substantial amount of time and money.
In fact, the construction was so challenging the original owner filed for bankruptcy before the mansion was complete. Donald Burns, CEO of the computer telephone device magicJack, purchased the unfinished property in 2011 for $14.1 million, according to the Wall Street Journal, and proceeded to spend a “substantial amount of money” to finish it.
The home, built mostly of white concrete, stainless steel, and glass in a cantilevered design, offers spectacular ocean and canyon views. Measuring 11,954 square feet, it has six bedrooms, six baths, and two half-baths.
The one-of-a-kind design includes a circular living room, an acoustically sound screening room, and two indoor kitchens.
Outside, the black-tile infinity pool is simply spectacular, and the glass railings on the rooftop deck offer a visually seamless connection to the deep, blue sea.
There are multiple outdoor terraces, as well as a two-bedroom guesthouse.
It’s hard to imagine how anyone could let this home go after painstakingly turning it into a cliffside paradise. The Journal reports that Burns, whose main residence is in Florida, hasn’t been able to spend as much time there as the property deserves.
