Description: The glorious pool on this seven-acre property near San Diego is delicately curved on one side and a horizon pool on the other. Around it grow mature palm trees, flowering shrubs, succulents and a lovely green lawn. There's a great outdoor living and dining room with soft, upholstered and wicker furniture. It also has a fireplace and pizza oven.

Indoors, it's California casual but with elegance with every feature imaginable: game room with a wine bar, movie theatre and exercise room. Large and numerous windows afford beautiful views from almost every room.

There are also his (cherrywood) and hers (Mediterranean-style) studies, housekeeping quarters and a separate guest house.
