TOWER 35 BEACH HOUSE
Location: Carlsbad, CA
Size: 2,088 S.F. Main House, 641 S.F. Guest House
Located 1 block East of Coast Highway 101, The Tower 35 beach house is a 1 minute walk to Carlsbad State Beach. Many years back, the site consisted of a small 900 S.F. beach cottage with a large rear yard. The owners had plans to slowly develop the lot with a new main house and guest house, and in 2010 BGI Architecture designed a 641 S.F. 1 bedroom guest house with lower floor 2 car garage. The guest house living space is located on the second story which allows views of the Pacific Ocean from many of the spaces.
After enjoying the existing cottage and main house for a number of years, the owners returned to BGI Architecture in 2017 to design a new main house. Construction completed in 2019. The original 900 S.F. cottage was replaced with a 2,088 S.F. beach house that includes 2 bedroom suites, a first floor media room that can convert to an extra bedroom, and a large open concept great room/dining/kitchen. The exterior space between the new main house and the rear guest house creates a protected courtyard that extends the living space of the main floor, and also includes a fire pit. In addition, the entire ground floor of the main house was designed to allow a free flow of people from the front entry yard to the exterior courtyard, perfect for entertaining large beach parties and holidays.
