4464 Adams Street, Carlsbad, CA 92008

Picturesque, sprawling lot (2/3 acre), with unobstructed views of the Agua Hedionda lagoon all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

Excellent opportunity awaits to build your dream home on unquestionably one of the premiere lots in town. Must see approved plans. The proposed single level home is sleek and sophisticated in design and is acclimated towards the southwest to capture the sunny indoor/outdoor California lifestyle, not to mention the endless coastal spectacular sunset shows. Current renderings are configured as a large 3/3 with a 3-car garage that can be changed to a 4/3. Behind the double door entry are stunning views and expansive decks for a relaxing retreat or entertaining. Additional and impressive features begin with a dedicated office, a large gourmet kitchen with two islands meant to be THE gathering place for family and friends, a luxurious primary bedroom that opens to the outside decks, and two additional private ensuites. One is on the opposite side of the home. But wait, there is more… a 1,000 square foot storage area, smartly situated under the raised decks. Located in Olde Carlsbad, a perennial favorite for buyers, with its proximity to Carlsbad’s sandy beaches, acclaimed schools, well known restaurants and resorts.

This lot has always been one of the most prestigious lots around. Home built in the 1950’s in the very desirable area of Carlsbad. Current owners are locals who purchased in 2012 as they were captivated by the views. One seller grew up just .5 mile away on Park Drive across the street from the open space adjacent to the Lagoon, before the fences and protective environmental restrictions were put in place. This Lagoon and the trails surrounding were the perfect place for an adventurous kid.

Currently there is a 2/2 home on the property with tenants living there and enjoying the location very much. The home has been modified through the years. The tax roles say it is a 4/2 which has something that was changed through the years and prior to these sellers purchasing the property. The previous owner did some upgrades, ie..the kitchen. With the original plans to build the new larger home, no additions were added and preventative maintenance was also placed on hold.Current plans would make it necessary to replace the current structure to make way for the new build.The owners stopped this project after 4 long years of getting approvals from the City of Carlsbad when an opportunity to own an iconic home here in town.That change in plans are now providing a new owner who wishes to own and live in a new home that will truly be a showcase and a perfect home for entertaining, guests, family and friends.
