Oceanside, San Diego’s northernmost city, is often overlooked in discussions about the region’s most exclusive real estate, which tend to focus on coastal North County cities such as Carlsbad, Encinitas, or Del Mar. But while wealthier areas do exist, Oceanside, true to its name, boasts nearly three miles of sandy beaches. And no matter where you go in Southern California, homes near the water’s edge are going to be prized possessions — and their price tags will reflect that.
The most expensive single-family listing currently available in Oceanside is 933 S. Pacific Street, where $4,495,950 will buy you a three-story home built in 2007 with four bedrooms and five baths spread across “3526 well appointed square feet of ocean front luxury living.”
“Let’s start with the reason to own this perfect home, the beach!” read the marketing materials for the property. A multi-tiered patio in the backyard offers “a perfect lounging area, a built in BBQ, an outdoor shower, plus a sand-filled retreat that is directly adjacent to the beach, with steps leading down to the sand.” Disappointed by disappearing fire pits at public beaches throughout the county? Your own private spit of sand atop the beach’s breakwater boulders has you covered.
Enter from the beach through the ground-level bonus room and you’re led into “a spacious great room with a wet bar, a laundry room, a dishwasher, wine refrigerator, fireplace” and en-suite bedroom.
Take the stairs or an elevator to the main level, featuring “a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances which include a Sub Zero refrigerator, Thermador oven, Wolf 6 burner cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, wine refrigerator, pot filler, & walk-in pantry,” along with an ocean-view dining area.
The top floor hosts “a magnificent master bedroom with endless ocean views” and a second laundry room. There’s also access to the rooftop deck featuring a hot tub and “panoramic views from Dana Point to La Jolla.”
“At the end of a long day, start the fireplace, relax in your very own steam shower, then take a soak in the whirlpool tub; all while listening to the crashing waves of the ocean & watching the surfers. What could be better than that?”
Tax records indicate the property is currently owned by Jerold and Lisabeth Isaac of Canyon Lake, a gated community in Riverside County surrounding a man-made lake.
The Isaacs paid $3.9 million for the South Pacific home in 2017, holding it for a year before re-listing the residence in mid-October of 2018 for just under $4.5 million. The price remains unchanged to date.
