Canfield-Wright House: reflects the rich history of Del Mar over the past 100 yrs. There is something quintessentially Californian about a historic mission revival styled estate. It offers the grandeur of the mission style architecture of yesteryear with its high ceilings, wood floors, welcoming fireplaces throughout, and sited on a prominent lot with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Today the home is on the National Registry of Historic places. Built in 1910 & designed by famed LA architect John C. Austin.

The over 10,000 sq. ft. home has been restored to its original grandeur under the direction of architect Douglas Mansfield. The home was built in 1910 for Charles A. Canfield who was an oil tycoon, drilling the first successful oil well in Los Angeles in 1892. He helped establish both Beverly Hills, California and Del Mar through his real estate company South Coast Land Company. The original architect John C. Austin designed some of California’s landmarks: The Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles City Hall, and the Griffith Observatory. Some of the additional special details of the home are: quarter sawn oak flooring, Cuban mahogany paneling, radiant heat throughout 4 zones, built in music, true gym with steam shower and dry sauna, professional media room. Detached guest home, fruit garden and raised bed organic garden with views, pool and spa w/ private outdoor shower, outdoor cooking area with slab granite counters and bar, temperature controlled wine cellar, commercial elevator, billiards room with copper inlaid box beam detail. Doors fold back to the walls, seamlessly inviting the outdoor spaces in. This is Truly Old Del Mar’s most coveted Gem!
