Iconic Mansion Featured In HBO’s “Westworld” Hits The Market For $23.5 Million

Crescent House is perched on the ocean frontage in Encinitas, a seaside village of San Diego County. Rancho Photos When Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys and her husband, record producer Kasseem Dean (a.k.a. Swizz Beatz), purchased their ultra-luxury home, The Razor House, designed by three-time Architectural Digest Top 100 designer and visionary architect Wallace Cunningham, they called it one of his best works . Today, another one of Cunningham’s exclusive, signature properties will soon be available for purchase in San Diego County’s coastal community of Encinitas.

Being listed at $23.5 million , the property is poised to break its own record for the most expensive home sold in the history of Encinitas.

Following the grand traditions of some of the 20th Century’s greatest architects, the modernist home was featured in an episode of HBO’s futuristic “Westworld” series.

Upon entering the home, the first thing visitors see is an infinity pool shaped like a crescent moon, wrapped around a circular terrace – hence the name Crescent House. A serene and secluded bedroom offers sweeping views of the ocean. Rancho Photos The home, which took three years to build, was completed in 2003. It was originally built for Bud Fischer, a prolific developer of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, for him and his wife, Esther.

Perched at the bluff top of this coastal community’s most aspirational street, the Crescent House is as sculptural as it is architectural.

“This property is like a museum, it is art,” said Lisa Waltman of Compass, who is co-listing the home with Kelly Howard. “Our most recent sale on this premier ocean view street, Neptune Ave in Encinitas, closed a few weeks ago at 3,174 per square foot, and that was a 1974 original-condition house on a much smaller lot. 532 Neptune stands alone in terms of its uniqueness and quality. At 0.43 acre, the lot is one of the larger ones on Neptune.”

With approximately 74 feet of ocean frontage, the modern concrete, glass and steel masterpiece overlooks the Pacific Ocean on one of Neptune’s largest lots (0.43 acre), creating an ideal combination of ultimate luxury and coastal indoor-outdoor living. Tiered design and curved walls shield a central courtyard with its unique crescent moon-shaped infinity pool. The outdoor spaces take relaxation to a whole new level. Rancho Photos The golden sunset is best appreciated from the patios, verandas, terraces and deck. Rancho Photos The main house includes the primary suite and two additional en-suite bedrooms, all with panoramic ocean views. Guest quarters offer an additional en-suite bedroom with a second room that could serve as an additional bedroom complete with pull-down Murphy beds.

The home is brimming with bonus areas that can do double duty as a gym, yoga studio, media room or office. Every bedroom and the living areas offer endless ocean views, while some also capture elevated views to the east where lights twinkle in the night sky. Patios, verandas, terraces and decks maximize outdoor coastal living and the sensation of floating on the ocean.
