Carlsbad's Hale Aikane - "House with Friends" 5

Paradise at Home in Carlsbad

Ko and Michael Roston’s 6,000 square-foot home, Hale Aikane “House With Friends” overlooking the 14th Fairway of the legendary La Costa Golf Course, is nothing short of a personal Boutique Resort.

When The Rostons purchased the original four-bedroom Mission-style home in 2002, there was none of the glamour and detail which the current residence boasts today. Roston, who has developed notable master planned communities in California, Nevada and Arizona is the son of Irv Roston, who built the La Costa Resort and surrounding La Costa Valley, tapped into his deep appreciation for the setting and location of the property. As Ko notes, “The original home was like a blank page and we were fortunate enough to be able to tear it down and start over. Essentially, we realized and captured our own imagined piece of artwork.”

As a true testimony to Ko’s artistic and architectural eye, every detail has been meticulously selected and crafted in order to create an estate of incomparable elegance and entertaining opportunities.

The meandering Koi Pond sets the mood of this aesthetic and tropical oasis, an homage to Ko’s love of Hawaiian culture. A visual and visceral experience beyond all expectations; the property’s tones, patinas, textures and artwork are all accentuated by the masterful talent of Ko, the sculptor. Each room conveys its intended mood: as exemplified by the sultry Dining Room with rich, lustrous woods, the handsome and secluded Executive Office with Bird’s Eye View of the Golf Course and Resort, the authentic and exciting Teppan Room which easily converts to an exclusive card room, the intimate outdoor Living Room warmed by a cozy fireplace, or the compelling heated outdoor Sports Bar suited for lively entertaining, grand or intimate.

The private, custom-built electronically-secured, Gated Golf-Cart Path from the home allows easy access to a round of Golf or to the fun-filled amenities of the La Costa Resort. Sun-drenched afternoons by the private Venetian glass mosaic tile Pool and Spa offer Southern California living at its best.

In spite of the highest level of elegance and refinement, there is a carefree, joie de vivre aspect to this home, highlighted by its “Pool-to-Putt” convenience… ideal for the Connoisseur of fine-living or the Golf Aficionado.

The Rostons have shared many cherished moments with close friends and family in this most personal and welcoming residence… at this time, they are poised and ready to embrace a new project to call “home”.
