Your BEST source for Del Mar Real Estate!

When the City of Del Mar voted to sell the “Balboa Lot”  at the apex of Olde Del Mar, a very rare opportunity became available for the first time in 45 years to those select individuals who wish to build a unique, ocean view, trophy home in one of the most desirable communities in the world.  

The views, location, size and scarcity of this unique lot are just some of the factors that make it such a rare and valuable find.  For those that wish to build in coastal Southern California, the choices are very few.  And, those that wish to build in the highly exclusive community of Del Mar with a relatively flat and usable lot of this size (22,215 gross sf, 16,000 net sf) that offers 270 degree views, the selection was nonexistent, until now.   

Expansive white water ocean views to the west and unobstructed views of lagoons and mountains dotted with majestic hot air balloons on most days to the east make this a truly magical property.  The “top of the hill”, end of the cul-de-sac location offer a tranquil, quiet privacy.

Walking distance to the heart of the quaint Del Mar Village, bustling with restaurants, cafes, and shops, as well as a close proximity to the world-famous Del Mar Race Track and local beaches make this the location that “has it all”.
Steve Uhlir, founder of SURE Real Estate has been selected as the exclusive Broker to sell this incredible property for the City of Del Mar.  It will be sold via auction in cooperation with Jim Gall of Auction Company of America on September 29 at Noon at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar.  For all the details about this amazing auction opportunity click here.
