The Razor House, an architectural jewel on the coast of La Jolla, has come on the market with a price tag of $30 million.

Perched on a cliff near Torrey Pines State Park, the mansion is the brainchild of architect Wallace E. Cunningham. Cunningham designed the home to keep its dramatic landscape as the focal point, using a cantilevered structure to capitalize on the sweeping ocean views.

The result is a modernist space supported by white polished concrete and wrapped in sheets of glass.

In 10,653 square feet, there’s a circular living room, two kitchens, a library, a billiards room and a number of geometric terraces overlooking the Pacific. One terrace, set on the roof, holds a swimming pool and outdoor kitchen.

Floors of stone and walnut enhance the living spaces. The main home holds four bedrooms — two of them master suites — and a 1,300-square-foot detached guesthouse adds two more.

The estate circles a center courtyard enclosed by slabs of concrete. Beneath the three-quarter-acre property, there’s a subterranean garage with room for five cars.

The property last traded hands seven years ago for $14.097 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Laleh and Niloofar Monshizadeh of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage hold the listing.
