Foxhill Estate sold for record $35 million

The Foxhill Estate closed escrow Apr 30, selling for $35 million and making it the most expensive home sale in La Jolla’s history.

Represented by Ross Clark, Lauren Gable, and Brett Dickinson of Compass, Foxhill was previously owned by Doug Manchester, who purchased the property in 2015 for $17 million.

The previous record for a home sale was also a Dickinson & Clark transaction: $24.7 million for 8466 El Paseo Grande in 2021.

“We’re breaking our own record,” said listing and buyer agent Ross Clark.

Foxhill, built in the late 1950s by late journalist and publishing magnate James Copley, a former publisher of the San Diego Union-Tribune, is the largest contiguous property in La Jolla at 30 acres.

The estate includes the Foxhill mansion, which contains 10 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, additional guest houses, a pool and sport courts, golf course, walking trails, garage parking for eight cars and more.

The now-closed sale went to a group of investors, who plan to develop five of the “most incredible” homes on what is now the Foxhill golf course, Clark said. 

The mansion will stay as is for now, he said.
