Creative Distinction

Panoramic views, seamless transitions and exceptional engineering are the key elements that make the Razor House, also known as Razor Bluff, an iconic residence perched on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Torrey Pines State Park’s Razor Point in La Jolla, California.

As architectural designer of the property Wallace Cunningham explained while presenting at the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Sneak Preview Event, “Razor Bluff frames it’s setting by following the curvature bluffs it is sited on and the ocean below.”

Cunningham was retained by the previous owner to create a 11,000 sq. ft. residence that captured the breathtaking views of the location. The home is constructed from translucent glass, steel and white polished concrete.

Described as much a work of art or sculpture as it is a home, the visual impact of The Razor’s daring design opens the entire residence to the undulating space of sky, landscape and view.

It took six years to construct, and there are numerous reasons why it’s an unforgettable piece of real estate.

Every area and section of the home pays homage to the spectacular views of the ocean and sky.

Pictures of the Razor House show how it’s nestled among La Jolla’s rocky cliffs, and nearly built up against the surf. But if you become the new owner of this home, you will be able to do more than just gaze at the breathtaking views of the ocean, you will also be able to walk the beach, surf the waves and enjoy Black’s Beach due to the home’s private beach access.

Designed to not only capture views, Cunningham explains that homes well designed with a strategic use of glass afford the owners the opportunity to have a smaller energy footprint. “I strive to design homes where lights are not needed during the daylight hours,” comments Cunningham. This philosophy is carried through even to the garage where natural light comes from rectangular glass openings in the ceiling from the courtyard above the garage.

A focal point of the residence is its 5,100 cubic foot infinity swimming pool, that gives the illusion of extending into the Pacific Ocean. The sparkling pool creates sets the ambiance as it leads you to the entrance of the residence.

The Razor is incomparable – it’s luxury at the highest level.
