Linda Rosa is a recently completed home in La Jolla, Ca and sold for $2,450,000.
Openness and transparency are the hallmarks of this hilltop house, which is located on the north side of a site to command views over the ocean to the west, and south, over a lap pool, to San Diego beyond.  The stairwell is enclosed by a two-story glass wall, and the western facade has floor to ceiling glass and large sliding doors.  A palette of FSC sustainably harvested American walnut, cork, plaster, and stone give the interior a warm tactile feel, and the benign climate allows natural cross ventilation year round, through high operable windows in the stairwell, front, and rear of the building.
