‘Papa Doug’ Manchester’s La Jolla Estate Lists for $37M
Doug ‘Papa Doug’ Manchester has many things; an interesting nickname, a position as San Diego’s plum real estate developer, and the memory of his near-appointment as the U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas by President Trump. However, Manchester hopes to soon be without his lavish La Jolla estate known as Foxhill. The entire 32-acre spread is listed for $37 million.
With plenty of space comes plenty of views and the property can see from the Pacific Ocean to the adjacent La Jolla Country Club golf course. At the estate’s peak lies the centerpiece: An approximately 17,000-square-foot mansion. Dating back to the 1980s, the traditional-style mansion is all about brick, wood paneling, chandeliers and stained glass windows. The original moldings remain throughout, complemented by stately four-poster beds and gilded details.
Two guesthouses, a caretaker’s house, and a pool pavilion bring the bedroom count to 10. A swimming pool, gym, and tennis, pickleball, and racquet courts all find a place on the property as well.
The options for purchasing are flexible if someone doesn’t want the entire estate — the main home and surrounding 8 acres can be picked up individually for $25 million, while the other 24 acres are on offer for $12 million. For more information on the property, Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman, Greg Noonan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and Andy Nelson of Willis Allen Real Estate have the listing.
