Carlsbadistan’s New Gold Coast

by The Editors on August 17, 2007


It’s not called the “land of Gold” for nothing. Terramar’s oceanfront street Tierra Del Oro is experiencing a large construction build out. In fact, of the streets 12 beach-front houses, two have been torn down (one has been rebuilt), another is scheduled for demolition, and a lot that has been empty for years is finally getting built out.

On the north is the Campbell Residence. They have demolished the existing single-family residence and are under construction with a 3,045 square foot two-story single family home with a 1,852 square foot basement and a 528 square foot two car garage designed by Brian Sipe and Architect Damian Baumhover.

Two houses south from the Campbells, the Riley’s are building a 6,215 square foot two-story single-family home with a basement on a lot that has been empty for years, if not forever. And next door to the Rileys is a project for the Moss Residence where the existing 2,100 square foot single family home is being demoed so a 6,455 square foot single-family residence with a basement can be built.

The home in the last lot may well be one of the most beautiful oceanfront homes in Carlsbad. We tried to get our architecture critic Eero Lloyd Neutra to tour the home, however, we were told that owners weren’t interested in media exposure, with the possible exception of Architectural Digest. And we’re not there yet, so we don’t blame them at all.
