Tucked away between the Pacific Coast and Buena Vista Lagoon, is a beachside oasis named Saint Malo. This coastal colony has remained one of the best and longest kept secrets in Oceanside. As the first gated community in San Diego, it has maintained an impeccable reputation of exclusivity and prestige since it was developed in 1929. Its design and architecture were inspired by an island village found near the coast of Brittany, France and many have described it as walking through a storybook or fairytale. Luxurious amenities of Saint Malo include five tennis courts, beach volleyball court, sandy beach, and cabana clubhouse. This marvelous family compound has everything you need to live in luxury, yet enjoy the laid back lifestyle of living at the beach. This is the only pool home in all of Saint Malo, and a beautiful one at that with a vanishing edge of flowing salt water. An expertly designed floor plan is built around the centerpiece courtyard and pool, the pinnacle for indoor/outdoor living. This home lends itself to adapting to each and every use, whether it’s entertaining for many, a calming meditative sanctuary, multi generational living, or an inspiring workspace. It’s impossible not to notice the one of a kind features that went into this home, some of the most notable include Douglas Fir timber planking, antique Tassie Oak imported from an Australian school house, antique chandeliers, antique repurposed doors, Kolbe windows, custom Clive Christian cabinetry and 5 gas starter fireplaces throughout. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight, no expense was spared in the remodel to include two Miele dishwashers, Hestan duel fuel 5 burner range with griddle, Subzero 36” with 2 drawer bottom freezer, Miele Speed oven, Miele conventional oven, walk-in pantry, and Carrara marble covering the countertops. In 2008, a vast owner’s suite overlooking the lagoon was added, with every amenity an owner could dream of. Two separate bathrooms part of this addition feature a BainUltra Champagne Bubble Bath, steam shower, and heated bathroom floors.
