The Crescent House, an $11.75 million beachfront stunner designed by architect Wallace Cunningham, is on the market for the first time.

The 7,500-square-foot home is situated on 100 feet of ocean frontage in Encinitas, a seaside village of San Diego County.

Made of concrete, steel and glass, the 6,500-square-foot home has four bedrooms, and four full and two half bathrooms.

When visitors enter the home, the first thing they see is an infinity pool shaped like a crescent moon—hence the home’s name. The pool wraps around a circular terrace, which is accessed by a curved ramp.

The home’s design was inspired by the moon and the views from the home’s perch on a sandstone bluff some 80 feet above the ocean.

Much of the ocean-facing side of the house is floor-to-ceiling glass intended to maximize light and water views.

The home also has terraces off the living room, office and master bedroom. There is an elevator, a two-car garage and a gym.
