PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $10 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Wake up with the sunrise and head to your private balcony to take in the beautiful, crystal blues of the sky and Pacific Ocean. After a healthy breakfast on the oversized pool deck (with the gentle sound of the ocean’s waves in the background), you can walk to the pristine beach for some relaxation, or take a short drive to the nearby marina to meet friends for boating. This is life at Villa Searfoss–and it’s not even lunch time!
Perched near the top of one of the tallest hills in the desirable Pedgregal community, Villa Searfoss offers sweeping views of the glistening Pacific Ocean, along with calming ocean breezes. The property’s views also include most of lower Pedgregal, which presents a beautiful collage of luxurious homes and unique architecture. As the evening arrives each day, Villa Searfoss is perfectly positioned to take in the area’s awe-inspiring sunsets, which turn the sky into a rich blend of purples, reds, oranges and pinks.
The tri-level property was custom-built by its current (and only) owner, with a “no-expense-spared” attitude and meticulous attention to construction quality gleaned from the owner’s lifelong career in engineering. The home offers more than 17,800 sq. ft. of constructed area, with 11,571 sq. ft. of interior space. More than 5,400 sq. ft. of terraces ensure that every bedroom has a private balcony, while the 788 sq. ft. pool deck includes a fire pit lounge, spa and infinity edge pool that seems to flow right into the Pacific.
In total, the residence offers 10 bedrooms (all of which are suites), 11 full and 1 half baths. The sprawling master suite is comprised of more than 2,000 sq. ft., including its terrace, and includes an oversized bathroom and a private office. There is also a “second master” suite on the lower level, in addition to a wing of bedrooms on the west side of the house.
This floor plan makes the property especially suitable for large families, or for a corporate retreat or luxurious entertainment and lodging venue. The eastern wing of the estate also houses two self-sustained apartments, each with dedicated kitchens.
Other features of the Villa include a gourmet kitchen, grand salon, large entertainment room and living area, a covered terrace with multiple hammocks for sunset lounging, and a four vehicle garage. Extra touches such as a whole-house water filtration system with UV purification and specially designed high-volume plumbing are signs of the meticulous attention to detail and sense of practicality employed in the creation of the estate.

PEDREGAL DE CABO SAN LUCAS, MEX. Pedregal is considered one of the finest, private residential communities in all of Cabo San Lucas. With a nearly 30-year history, along with the continued development of new, multimillion-dollar homes by both private individuals and speculative builders, the community has proven that it remains a desirable – and stable – luxury real estate enclave in the Baja California Sur.
While the majority of properties in the core of Pedregal are very large, luxurious estates, there are also a number of townhomes and condominiums. The elevation of the community allows for magnificent views of the ocean from many of the properties that are nestled into the slopes of the hills and small mountains there.
Despite the fairly significant grade of some of Pedregal’s hills, the area’s architects and builders utilize what can only be considered an exceptional degree of skill to create beautiful estates, may of which are multi-level, stepped designs that flow with the grade of the land.
Although there is quite a bit of heterogeneity in the design of the many luxury homes there, the differing designs seem to add an extra layer of charm to Pedregal, when coupled with its winding, cobbled roads and sublime ocean backdrop. In fact, a number of estates within Pedregal have been featured in leading publications such as Architectural Digest, Forbes, and Distinctive Homes.
Though the fees are very modest ($560/month for Villa Searfoss), Pedregal does have a Homeowners Association (HOA), dedicated to maintaining the security of the community and its residents, in addition to preserving its high-caliber aesthetic. The community maintains all water lines, electric equipment, streets, and landscaping in common areas, as well as retaining office and maintenance staff to ensure timely service. Notable community amenities include a dedicated beach area, stationed guard gate with 24-hour security patrol, 250,000-gallon water desalinization plant, spa/health club, tennis club, children’s playground/park, and a private school (bilingual; K-12).
CABO SAN LUCAS, MEX. Significantly evolved beyond its humble beginnings as a fishing village, and much more than a mere spring break location, Cabo San Lucas has solidified itself as a coveted destination for travelers from all over the world. Often simply called “Cabo,” the city is located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
Cabo is at the southern portion of what is known as the Los Cabos Corridor, an area stretching about 30 km along the southern coast of the Baja California Peninsula. San José del Cabo is at the northern tip of the Corridor (San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas collectively form the Los Cabos area). The Corridor is the location of the majority of upscale residential communities, luxury resorts, golf courses, and fishing posts in Los Cabos, and serves as the broader destination for the global elite who visit the area.
Although initially known as a hot spot for nightlife and entertainment (fueled in no small part by Sammy Hagar’s world-famous Cabo Wabo Cantina), the development of luxury communities and resorts on the southern portion of the Peninsula has placed Cabo among the world’s leading luxury lifestyle destinations.
In addition to nearly perpetual sunshine, clear blue skies and strikingly blue ocean waters, Cabo also benefits from a warm climate that lacks excess humidity and is tempered by ocean breezes. This makes the area popular for outdoor activities like swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, riding ATVs through the desert-like inland areas, and – of course – boating and fishing. In fact, Cabo is home to Bisbee’s Black & Blue (the highest paying billfish tournament in the world) whose 2006 overall cash payout of $4,165,960 is still the largest in sportfishing history.
One of the most distinctive geographic features in Cabo San Lucas is El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, a beautiful and famous arched rock formation at the southernmost tip of the Baja California Peninsula that marks the point at which the Pacific Ocean becomes the Gulf of California. Cabo’s commercial port and sizable marina are located just northwest of the arch, within a protected harbor. In addition, a fashionable shopping mall called Luxury Avenue offering upscale clothing, beauty and jewelry stores and Cabo’s bustling entertainment district (boasting a brand new OMNIA “dayclub” and Hakkasan Group’s Casa Calavera restaurant) are located within only a few kilometers of the marina.
