The Latest Listing For The Captain’s House Sails Into The Sunset
After an effective 65 months on the market, an $8,000,000 renovation and $2,400,000 price increase (followed by a $3,900,000 reduction), the latest listing for 300 Sea Cliff (a.k.a. The Captain’s House) has been withdrawn from the MLS. No word on whether or not it will soon return or was quietly sold. And if so, with (or to) whom and for how much.
Perhaps stucco really isn't more palatable to those modern millionaire tastes...

I don't see any parking spots at the curb here. In fact, I don't see a curb.

I think it's pretty telling that two Sea Cliff homes on the same street sell for 15 and 14.5 million in a week, and this lingers for literally years. The absentee owner needs to get a clue.

There's a curb on the other side. In real life, the house looks a lot smaller than this picture - perhaps one of the reasons it's lingered for years. That, and the remodel is fugly as hell.
On that note, I'm still sad about 230 Sea Cliff selling before I had a chance to win the lotto, fixer or not. Also speaking of Sea Cliff lovelies, whatever happened to 610 El Camino Del Mar? It seemed like it was on the market forever, but not anymore. Curious what it sold for.

c'mon, with a bath like this, how could somebody NOT buy it?

Garrett,perhaps because that bath looks like a slip-on-wet-marble-fall-and-break-your-head-open tragedy waiting to happen.
I wouldn't take a bath in there without a helmet!

ha! you're probably right. if ya feel up the tub with some warm water and bubbles though, the view is entertaining enough where ya may not need to get in-and-out. also, if ya have $20million bux, you likely don't need to go to leave to go to work.

Garrett - now you're talking. I could spend my life in that tub, and just have people bring me snacks and books!

kthnxybe they would soon be selling tickets at the door to view this white wrinkled prune snacking and reading. No offense, just effects of a life in water, lol.

The owners should be beaten for the ugly stucco over the beautiful brick facade that used to be there.
Anyone remember the title of the Chuck Norris movie filmed in the 70's I think that featured this lovely home?

I've said it before, but that is the most god-awful kitchen remodel I've ever seen.
