House of the Day: Leave 'The Real World' Behind in La Jolla

Smack-dab next door to a house that, until recently, was surely the scene of nonstop revelry and drama sits this stunning beachfront mansion. Recently listed for $7.5 million, "Maison de la Mer" is located in the Bird Rock neighborhood of La Jolla, Calif. and also happens to be adjacent to the house where MTV's current season of "The Real World" just finished filming.

"We wanted to make sure the filming next door had been completed before offering the home for sale," Realtor Maria Weiss said in a statement.

A good judgment call, we'd say, considering prospective buyers probably wouldn't be all that impressed by the well-inebriated, weeping trespasser here or raucous next-door party there.

House of the Day: Leave 'The Real World' Behind in La Jolla
The four-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion sprawls 6,777 square feet and commands 90 feet of oceanfront. It's such a looker that it was recently named this year's "Holiday House" by the San Diego Association of Realtors. That means it will play host to numerous charity events which will be attended by a number of professional athletes and local dignitaries.

The home offers jaw-dropping vistas of the entire coastline along with an entertainment-scale backyard, balcony, pool and spa. Inside there is a large "bonus room" along with a library, living room, kitchen, breakfast nook, family room and elevator. Celebrating the property's seaside setting, the mansion's indoor steps are decorated with the notes of the song "Beyond the Sea."

Maria Weiss of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the listing.
