one of a kind - state of the art - masterpiece.

“...his design vision and inspiration transpired into the definition
of modern luxury and natural elegance...”

 

The Razor House is a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece located in La Jolla, California, seated cliffside amongst California’s Torrey Pines State Park.

This unique estate was designed by one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers, Wallace E. Cunningham; his design vision and inspiration transpired into the definition of modern luxury and natural elegance. When Cunningham was designing the home, one of the primary objectives was to capture the view in a large sweep while simultaneously extending the usable spaces. Razor’s cantilevered design offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

This modern estate was named after the one of the local natural monuments, Razor Point, which is fitting as the property truly pays homage to the spectacular surrounding landscape. Below the stunning estate lies Black’s Beach, which can be privately accessed from the property. The residence is located near Torrey Pines Golf Course, Del Mar Racetrack and the La Jolla Playhouse.
