The Razor, Estate of the Day
Architect Wallace E. Cunningham has been deemed one of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers and today's estate shows why he earned that title. The Razor in La Jolla, California is as perfect a slice of concrete and glass positioned for ideal ocean views. When Architectural Digest published a piece about this property last year the owner, Don Cooksey was quoted as saying :"I'll never have a collection better than that view," says the software designer and entrepreneur. "That's my art. That thing's alive."
The home offers a panorama revealed in a series of curved forms set into the cliffside. The soft angles keep the house from being simply another modern glass box. The 11,000-square-foot home has four bedroom including a master with a large swoop of a fireplace. There is also a two level guest house and features private access to Black's Beach. The home hit the market last July for $39 million but is now listed at $32 million.
UPDATE: As of September 2009 this house is listed at $28 million. Experience more lush living in luxury homes and mansions or see the stars living large with celebrity homes galleries at AOL Real Estate.
