We believe that extraordinary home design is about creating experiences that amplify your life, and the Ora House is the best possible example of a home that evokes a powerful response.

Design-led development firm Blue Heron, renowned for its extraordinary custom residences, including the record-shattering Vegas Modern 001 (VM001) in Las Vegas and dramatic 3eleven in San Diego’s La Jolla neighborhood, has completed construction and listed its newest custom home in Southern California – the Ora House. A one-of-a-kind cliffside estate in San Diego’s exclusive Bird Rock Waterfront enclave in the affluent neighborhood of La Jolla, the Ora House was designed, furnished, and built by Blue Heron’s BH Elite custom home division. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the four-level, 8,878-square-foot, five-bedroom, eight-bath home has now hit the market for $32.5 million and is listed with Brett Dickinson of Compass and Deborah Greenspan of Pacific Sotheby’s.

“We believe that extraordinary home design is about creating experiences that amplify your life, and the Ora House is the best possible example of a home that evokes a powerful response,” said Tyler Jones, Blue Heron’s CEO and Founder. “Every time the future residents enter this home, they will experience the carefully considered journey and the attention to detail that connects this space to the ocean and the surrounding environment. Our entire team at Blue Heron is excited to bring another transformative design to Southern California.”

Overlooking the majesty of the Pacific Ocean, the Ora House embodies the essence of coastal living and connection to its surroundings with the use of color, texture and materials. Designed with horizontally tiered levels, every space has been carefully considered to maximize the home’s stunning views.

Craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail are hallmarks of every BH Elite home, and the Ora House has been built with an uncompromising eye for detail. Each level embraces the outdoors with spaces tailored for both entertaining and private moments. The garden level wraps around an outdoor courtyard below a unique bridge entry experience. Featuring a cascading waterfall, the lounge, media room, and lower-level suite offer a multisensory experience filled with natural light and enhanced with the sound of flowing water.

Accessed by an entry bridge, the home’s main level opens to expansive ocean views, transforming the kitchen and great room into a mesmerizing world just steps beyond the front door. Additional features include a bar and game room, pool and spa, dining room with wine display, primary bedroom, primary lounge, primary covered deck, a partially covered sky deck, and a four-car garage with a lift that stores two cars on the main level and two cars on the basement level. An elevator and four-level stairwell provide access to each floor.

Every inch of the over 8,800-square-foot space maximizes the panoramic ocean views, with glass pocket walls that blur the boundaries of indoor-outdoor living. A sweeping structural symphony of light, water, ocean views, and contemporary design make the Ora House the most iconic waterfront property on the market. The home also incorporates the same innovative biophilic design and advanced Savant technology used in Blue Heron’s flagship home, VM001 in Las Vegas, to effortlessly enhance the flow of life while creating an overall sense of peace and natural wellbeing.

“The Ora House’s iconic architecture, brilliant siting and deft application of biophilic design differentiate it from all other waterfront properties along the coast,” said listing agents Brett Dickinson of Compass and Deborah Greenspan of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty in a joint statement. “All three facets work in harmony to provide a truly unique visual and sensorial experience that can never be replicated on the water. Each interior and exterior space at the Ora House features distinct combinations of the four elements of matter – water, earth, light and fire.”

“The Ora House’s location is also one of San Diego’s hidden gems,” they continued. “The Bird Rock Waterfront is La Jolla’s new street of dreams with easy walkability to the town of La Jolla and exceptional beaches for surf and sand.”

One of the only newly built waterfront properties currently on the market in Southern California, the Ora House offers easy access to the best that San Diego has to offer. Located at 5228 Chelsea Street, a short drive from the best surf break in the area, the La Jolla neighborhood’s award-winning dining and thriving art scene, and convenient to the lively downtown of San Diego, the home delivers a rare opportunity to own new construction along the coast.
