Every house has a story, and so is the case with this significant ocean-view property. Designed by Judith Munk for her husband, renowned Oceanographer Walter Munk, and their children. Bursting with character and creativity, this residence, known as Seiche, is perched high above a protected canyon preserve and features spectacular ocean views from the house and garden. The home by its design is inclusive, incorporating a number and variety of meeting places, and was designed to be a hub of conversation and creativity as well as a haven for the family. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the property features a main house, a guest house, a second story guest room, a folly amphitheater, and thoughtful landscaping. Large expanses of glass, open interior plans, and a clear expression of structure and materials characterize the main house while vines perfectly envelop the mid-century modern structure. A swimming pool and sunken garden on the east provides a secluded garden, while the west garden provides a perfectly designed area for the indoor / outdoor life style favored in La Jolla. Embedded in nature and rich in history, this unique property is just moments from UCSD, trails, and the beach.
