Camino Del Oro Residence

Paul Benton Residential

 La Jolla, California The open floor plan of this new two-story 4,100 square foot home was designed to take advantage of its beachfront location. The breathtaking foyer leads residents and guests upstairs to the main level. Indoor and outdoor spaces merge as the large glass doors slide out of sight and allow for expansive views of one of San Diego’s most popular beaches. Large skylights and high ceilings allow natural light to filter into the spaces throughout the day, while a state-of-the-art lighting system creates a wonderful atmosphere for relaxing or entertaining. Solar panels, tankless water heaters, and renewable materials are just some of the many aspects that make this home environmentally friendly.
