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.

DSC_2772Windermere Homes & Estates proudly welcomes Ryan Street. Ryan was born and raised in White Bear Lake, Minnesota where he lived with his family, parents Clarke and Mary and 3 younger sisters Krissy, Ashellee and Emily until he joined the Marine Corps in 1999. Ryan grew up heavily involved in sports and the outdoors, his passions were hockey, baseball, golf, hunting and fishing.

Ryan’s sales career began right out of high school at a regional tire and service company Tires Plus. His no nonsense, direct approach to sales quickly made him a favorite among new and return customers while impressing the management. Ryan was quickly promoted to Assistant Manager and was on the fast track to Manager when he decided he wanted to serve at a greater level.

Ryan joined the Marine Corps in April of 1999, went to boot camp, combat training and attended the structures and hydraulics course in Pensacola, FL and was assigned to HMLA-169 on Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton. He deployed to Afghanistan in 2001/2002 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraq in 2003 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Upon his return he was assigned to HMX-1/VX-9 in Patuxent River, MD where he served as a member of the H-1 Upgrades Operational Test Team which subsequently tested and delivered the new 4 bladed Huey and Cobra aircraft to the fleet!

Ryan’s interest in real estate began as a first time home buyer where he had an awful experience with a less than reputable agent. Ryan knew his passion for discipline, integrity and service above self would be a great fit with his significant existing network in the real estate world. In his first year of his real estate career, Ryan sold 28 homes in North San Diego and Southern Riverside Counties.

Ryan lives in North Escondido with his lovely wife Bethany and their 3 girls Arianna, Sienna and Elaina.
