Andrew White/Method Development Corp.

The house is located in the coastal city of Carlsbad, about 30 miles from downtown San Diego. The seller is Andrew White, owner of the home development and design company Method Development.    

Mr. White, who starred in the HGTV show “Hot Properties: San Diego,” said he bought the circa-1985 property for $3.5 million last year as a passion project. 

“It had incredible bones,” he said, “but it had very dated finishes.”

Mr. White said he spent just over a year remodeling the house and has been living in it for the past four months.                                  

The home sits on roughly 1.6 acres and spans about 11,000 square feet with six bedrooms. Mr. White said he spent several million dollars on the remodel, but wouldn’t disclose the specific amount. The fountains were already in the home when he bought it, Mr. White said, but he revamped them, adding greenery and statues of Medusa that shoot water from their mouths. 

The primary suite spans about 1,600 square feet. Mr. White said he designed the walk-in closet to look like a luxury fashion showroom, with two chandeliers and black-framed glass cabinets with integrated LED lighting. 

The house has two wings separated by an art gallery. Each wing has its own kitchen as well as living, dining and laundry rooms. Other amenities in the house include a gym, a wine room, a home theater and an elevator. 

Outside, there is a bar and a 75-foot-long black marble swimming pool. A structure for a security guard sits at the entrance of the property. The home will be sold furnished, art included.

The house sits on roughly 1.6 acres.

Mr. White said he is selling because he is starting another remodel in the area soon, and plans to move into another home in the meantime.

In Carlsbad, the median listing price in April was $1.4 million, up 16.7% from the same time last year, according to (News Corp, parent of The Wall Street Journal, operates
