Masterfully designed by Wallace E. Cunningham, one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers, The Razor is an unparalleled statement of modern luxury. Located in the exclusive La Jolla Farms area of San Diego, sited on a bluff overlooking California’s world famous Black’s Beach, the stunning location and epic home are truly irreplaceable.

Listing agent, Bob Hurwitz of Beverly Hills-based Hurwitz James Company stated:

The architect Wallace Cunningham considers Razor his masterpiece. The degree of imagination and thought that went into aspects of the design are almost beyond belief, from exactly what natural light passes through the property at every hour from morning to evening, to incorporating a knowledge of airflow over geometric shapes to insure there is never any wind in the courtyard area no matter how windy it may be on the bluff, to casting concrete like it had not been done before, to a list too long for me to put into this email, this home is truly one of a kind. Certainly, with today’s building restrictions nothing like it could ever possibly be built again in this location.
