Set back the hands of time and prepare to enter a sea side La Jolla estate that has a rich and nostalgic past. An architect’s dream, this California casual home seamlessly blends old world charm and modern flair. With only a handful of truly significant estates located on the Southern California coastline, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty looks to expose a global audience to this unique offering.
This spectacular estate previously owned by a celebrated local philanthropist and political journalist Harle Montgomery, whose career accolades include interviewing former, US Presidents John F. Kennedy & Richard Nixon along with a wide array of foreign dignitaries. If these walls could speak, 1660 Torrey Pines would share a history as old as La Jolla itself. The owner’s cosmopolitan lifestyle is definitely reflected in the property with a magnificent entry way flanked by remarkable hand carved columns from the Swat region of India, all leading to century’s old door acquired from a monastery in Nepal. Gazing out towards the rolling waves of the Pacific through magnificent reclaimed windows from the iconic Hotel Del Coronado, will surely elicit pure tranquility.
Exclusive marketing channels and a robust global media strategy make Sotheby’s International Realty the perfect vehicle to showcase such an exquisite estate. Partnerships with the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, BBC and many others insure that local properties have unrivaled access to qualified buyers around the world.
To promote the new offering, the company has included two of their top agents. Each brings a unique skill set and range of expertise. Amber Anderson, an expert negotiator and global marketing powerhouse, who has recently sold two of San Diego country’s largest ocean front homes. She is joined by Ross Whitney, whose impressive 31 year career has seen him earn numerous industry awards and professional accolades. After a complete re-invention of the home, both Amber and Ross look to showcase this spectacular property to a local and global audience.
