It’s still available.
The American Dream is what has made America such a successful nation for hundreds of years. American President, Abraham Lincoln, once said, “You can have anything you want — if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.” The ideal of the American Dream from our Founding Fathers still stands.

The ideal and sought after location, the 19th block, is known to be the best block on the sand for so many reasons; all telephone wires are underground, the lots are the deepest available, and only steps to the quaint Del Mar Village.

Being a home on the beach, “the quality of the furnishings and style of the furniture itself has to bring out the best in the home,” explains Barry. This stunning home is listed for $8,995,000 to $10,994,876.
