Sweet San Diego Pad (Gadgets Included)

From Margaret Everton on September 10, 2010 in San Diego

When most people design a home 5,500 square feet in size, adding gadgets comes last—usually after the dust has settled. But for Gad Shaanan, tech master of such things as cell phones and commuter trains, innovative and time-saving extras were top priorities for his spectacular La Jolla home. san diego gadget home Among the man-I-wish-I-had-that additions? A dumbwaiter to carry the groceries from the trunk of the car directly to the pantry’s shelves, and a fold-out ironing board situated over the fireplace in the master retreat—smack dab in front of the flat screen TV. However, with ocean front views and a light and airy modern design, Shaanan’s home has more to offer than high-tech conveniences. The main floor living area is brought together in a seamless design that incorporates the indoors with the out, punctuated by creamy Jerusalem stone tiling hand-picked in Israel by Shannan himself. Neutral, earthy tones contrast with the blues of the ocean and sky. san diego picture windows Another seating area on the main floor is backed by an adjoining dining space with room for 14. Colors may be sparse, but textures are present throughout each space. san diego living room Adding to the perfect entertainment setting is a gourmet kitchen complete with five ovens and two stoves.

A stunning backyard that blends perfectly with the design scheme of the interior. A comfortable seating area and an inviting pool make this area a sure favorite for guests and family alike. san diego gadget entertainment
