Two of San Diego’s more discerning buyers and sellers recently chose Judy Elsberry and Todd Bloom of Prudential California Realty to represent them during their transaction, the highest in La Jolla this year. Elsberry represented the seller and Bloom represented the buyer of the estate, which is sited on approximately 0.73 acres of land.
The French Normandy style home took five years to build, as wood beams for the construction were imported from France and everything was hand-made. Workers from South Africa were brought in to complete a thatched roof over one of the rooms, and there are a number of intricately crafted mosaics within the approximately 10,000 square foot interior.
“The amount of care and attention that the sellers applied to ensure that everything in this home was completely authentic is nothing short of amazing,” said Elsberry, a 38-year industry veteran. “This is without question one of the top five best homes in La Jolla.”
Bloom agreed, adding that, “There is no way that this home could be replaced for less than $20 million, and that’s not even taking the value of the land into account.”
Constructed with a focus on privacy and security, the estate offers world-class finishes, heated stone and wood floors, and direct gated beach access. Retractable walls provide a seamless transition to the outdoor living spaces, which include lighted lawns and rose gardens, as well as four oceanfront patios and decks.
Judy Elsberry is a luxury market expert who works strictly on a referral basis. She credits her longevity and success in real estate to her sense of discretion, local knowledge and commitment to further and protect the interests of her clients.
“This was one of the smoothest transactions in which I’ve been involved,” added Bloom, a Luxury Properties Specialist. “Judy’s experience was key, and having everything in-house was essential. Our administrative team here in the La Jolla office is highly trained, and having the backing of an industry leader like Prudential is always helpful.”
A previous recipient of the McNaught-Davis/Knox award, Todd Bloom has consistently been honored for his sales production and client service. He is a founding member of The La Jolla Community Foundation, and his background in San Diego real estate spans more than 23 years.
