423Luzen92014-52-smOn Tuesday, December 13th, Windermere Homes & Estates realtors Debby Neff and Lisa Walton opened up the doors of their luxury listing at 423 Luzon Avenue to showcase the workings of renowned local artist & architect, Herb Turner. This famed architect/artist is best known for his unique approach to design, keeping the environment and landscape on the front lines of his plans.  As stated by the San Diego Union Tribune, Turner took a “holistic approach to architecture and landscape, emphasizing the interaction between interior and exterior spaces.”

 

This quote couldn’t be truer when viewing 423 Luzon Avenue in Del Mar California. As you come up the elongated driveway entrance, you are greeted by lush landscaping as it flows along the front pathway. Carefully selected succulents and ferns grace the dramatic entry as you approach the one of a kind, sculptured front door.  Every single detail of the home is synonymous with Turner’s principals when it comes to design; a delicate blend of nature and architecture.

 

From the stone accents to the raw wood touches, this custom built home is a true gem on its street, setting it apart from all others in its vicinity. 

 

Debby & Lisa displayed Turners unique artworks throughout the house and garden, showcasing some never before seen pieces with the all-encompassing Pacific as a backdrop. An audience of architects, builders, clients and realtors enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and refreshments as the sun set on a beautiful Tuesday evening. In attendance was Gene Schwartz, who wrote the forward of the book “The Art & Architecture of Herbert B. Turner,” who spoke about his beloved friend and gave out 50 free books to the first to arrive.  Guests shared stories and enjoyed beautiful ocean views from the comfort of this elevated luxury listing, nestled in the foothills of Ole Del Mar.

 

The event was a true success in honoring the local artist, allowing all viewers to share a truly unique experience that is synonymous with Turner’s design style. 

 

Guest speaker Gene Schwartz quoted, “He left his indelible mark in our community and in the memories of those who knew him. The Del Mar sunset with its unobstructed view splashing its colors to the horizon and beyond that you provided for his remembrance couldn’t have been more fitting.”

 

For more information on this premier listing in Del Mar, CA, contact Debby Neff: 760-822-2550, or Lisa Walton: 858-945-1647.
