Shaun White flips his updated Encinitas home onto the rental market


Olympic and X Games gold medalist Shaun White has listed his oceanfront home in Encinitas for lease at $12,500 a month -- offering a glimpse inside the newly renovated residence that the professional snowboarder, skateboarder and entrepreneur purchased in 2012.

White, whose real estate portfolio extends from Utah down through the Southland, paid $3.85 million for the two-story contemporary, which sits on a bluff with private access to the popular beach spot.

The 3,500 square feet of polished interiors features dark wood floors, wrought iron chandeliers and bi-folding doors that give way to unobstructed ocean views. Smart home features, wireless speakers and a modernized kitchen with marble countertops and large center island are among the updates.


The master suite sports a free-standing soaking tub and a glass-enclosed rain shower for four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Outdoors, a step-down deck with a vanishing-edge spa extends off of the main level, while a private staircase leads down to the beach below. A courtyard set beneath tall palms marks the entrance to the home.

La Jolla-based Glassman & Associates have the listing, which was first spotted by Redfin.

White, 28, is known for his aerial snowboarding stunts and has won two gold medals at the Winter Olympics and holds the record for the most medals at the Winter X Games. As a skateboarder, he has twice won gold at the X Games.

More recently, the San Diego native brought snow to the Rose Bowl in February for the debut of Air + Style, an extreme sports, arts and music festival for which he is a majority owner.
