The Captain’s Castle (300 Sea Cliff) was in the local news last night. And according to a tipster that caught the segment, all that stuccoing and remodeling reportedly didn’t come cheap ($8,000,000). Also noted on the segment, the house has been in the possession of the current owners for six years (but they never moved in).
We note that the virtual tour has been updated with plenty of actual post-remodel photos. And once again, we only wish they would have left the outside alone (pre-stucco and landscaping).
UPDATE: Some great background (“Joan Waitt—whose husband, Ted, co-founded Gateway Computer—bought this house and an adjacent one in 2000 and planned to turn the properties into a compound.”), insight (“She says she later decided she “didn’t really want another house”) and more by way of the RealEstateJournal.
