1750 Ocean Front, Del Mar, 92014
Listing materials for a pair of Del Mar condos at 1750 Ocean Front promise prospective buyers a “Once in a lifetime opportunity for this stunning architectural masterpiece” on the sand just north of Powerhouse Park.
“Exquisite design and attention to detail” went into renovating the pair of townhomes to combine them, forming a single home with just under 2500 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, and four baths. Design touches applied by the award-winning local architectural firm Batter Kay Associates include “lighted stone, onyx and marble” that make “a beautiful combination with hardwood floors” found throughout the residence. Custom crystal-inspired light fixtures are found in the living areas and master bath; other baths feature modern vessel sinks that rest atop stone counters.
The “luxurious private master bedroom” sports a generous 22-by-16-foot main room with fireplace and adjacent private patio. The bathroom suite features a steam shower and radiant floor heaters.
The kitchen includes chef-quality appliances with a large gas range mounted on a center island that doubles as a breakfast bar. The refrigerator and pull-out chest freezer are built in and face-matched to the rest of the cabinetry; there’s also a second dedicated wine refrigerator.
Other features include “smart home automation and life touch technology” and “integrated home audio/video throughout” that ties into a video-monitored security system. There are also “electric storm roll-up shades” for additional security and protection from the elements.
Outside, the patio’s imported wood deck “has been preserved and eco treated for maximum durability and longevity.” The patios span the length of the property’s rear, directly abutting a sandy expanse of public beach.

Though no unit numbers are given in marketing materials, townhomes two and three in the five-unit complex at 1750 Ocean Front are both registered to Trevtroy, LLC, an entity established in 2015 with a mailing address elsewhere in Del Mar. Unit two, originally a 949-square-foot condo with two bedrooms and baths, last sold publicly to a group led by Howard Appel, a retired real estate investor and former president of local drug-testing outfit Millennium Health; that unit sold for $2.44 million and was subsequently transferred to Trevtroy in October 2017; while unit three, formerly a 1510-square-foot 2-bedroom, 3-bath home, was purchased by Trevtroy directly in 2013 for just over $3.1 million.
The combined units hit the market for the first time in late November, carrying a price of $16 million, currently the highest asking price for attached housing in San Diego County. For an additional fee, “Some high end art work by local artist and furniture could be available for purchase [sic].”
