In La Jolla, California, what seems like a razor-like housing structure is standing to size as wide as 10,000 square feet. An architect based in San Diego, Wallace E. Cunningham designed the structure which, ideally, is named the Razor Residence. The structure houses four bedrooms and six bathrooms and is made of the combination of steel, glass and white polished concrete. This combination, along with the architectural design, reinforces the look of a sharp and lean razor.
May 2008 was the time the house first listed and it was priced a sum of $ 39 million. The economic downturn that followed years after affected the selling price of the house and significantly decreased the price to a mere $ 19,388,000. The agent described the house as La Jolla’s one of a kind masterpiece of architecture. It was referred to as trophy property of the architect which happened to be listed in the Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers.
The Razor Residence was meant to suspend whatever boundaries exist to the ordinary living and invite such amazing unobstructed views of the natural landscape, open skies, and the ocean adjacent to the structure. Built on the higher part of the Torrey Pines State Reserve, this house is guaranteed such unstoppable beautiful interference only nature can afford to give. The designer did not take such offer for granted, as he, in turn, used in abundance floor to ceiling glasses to allow the lushness of the forest into the house.
The Razor Residence was completed with a remarkable two-story guest house as well as exclusive private access to the Black’s Beach. It takes only 15 minutes from the house to the airport. Del Mar Thoroughbred race track and Torrey Pine preserve and a golf course is neighbors to this house. Check out the photos below to get a clear idea of the house’s stunning look and sophisticated design that amount to be a piece of art.
