The Razor Residence in La Jolla is Back up for Auction November 10th – Update: The Razor sold for $14.1 million

The incredibly lucky and savvy new owner of the “Razor” house in La Jolla is a 47-year-old real estate investor from Palm Beach, Fla., with ties to the telecommunications industry, based on information from the listing agent, public documents and other sources.

Donald A. Burns bought the property for $14.1 million in a short sale that was finalized on Tuesday, said agent Bob Hurwitz of the Hurwitz James Co. in Beverly Hills.

The architect Wallace Cunningham considers Razor his masterpiece. The degree of imagination and thought that went into aspects of the design are almost beyond belief, from exactly what natural light passes through the property at every hour from morning to evening, to incorporating a knowledge of airflow over geometric shapes to insure there is never any wind in the courtyard area no matter how windy it may be on the bluff, to casting concrete like it had not been done before, to a list too long for me to put into this email, this home is truly one of a kind. Certainly, with today’s building restrictions nothing like it could ever possibly be built again in this location.  Click here to view the brand new set of Razor pictures……Insane.
