The sci-fi show, which centers on futuristic and dystopian themes, used the sprawling estate in its season three premiere.

“Westworld’s” producers chose the home as a set because it “incorporated a lot of the design details” that were already in the season, production designer Howard Cummings told Architectural Digest.

The futuristic-looking property was designed by architect Wallace Cunningham.

Cunningham also designed the San Diego mansion that served as inspiration for Tony Stark’s home in the “Iron Man” movies, Insider’s Katie Warren reported, citing realtors. The “Iron Man” home is currently owned by singer-songwriter Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz.

Lisa Waltman and Kelly Howard of Compass hold the listing.

The Crescent House, named after its crescent-shaped infinity pool, was completed in 2003.

It was originally built for Bud Fischer, a real-estate developer known for transforming San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, and his wife, agents told Insider.

Throughout its history, the property has consistently been sold for less than its asking price, with every transaction finalized within a month of the house being listed, per listing records.

It was first put up for sale in February 2014 for $11.75 million and sold for $10.5 million in March 2014. The property was then relisted for sale in August 2016 for $13 million, but sold for $11.1 million in September 2016, per listing records.

The home sits on less than half an acre but comes with 74 feet of waterfront access. It sits on top of a steep bank and overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

The mansion comes with numerous outdoor spaces, such as patios, verandas and terraces, where residents can enjoy the ocean view

A key highlight of the home is its numerous outdoor spaces, including patios, verandas, and terraces, where residents can lounge and admire the ocean view.

The estate is located on Neptune Ave. in the coastal city of Encinitas in San Diego County, California.

The real-estate scene in San Diego County has been buzzing recently as housing prices soar. In March, the median sales price for detached homes was $975,000, up by 20.4% compared to March 2021, when the median sales price was $810,000, per the San Diego Association of Realtors.

At $23.5 million, the Crescent House is an outlier, but it’s not the only multimillion-dollar mansion to hit the market recently. Another waterfront mansion in La Jolla, San Diego County, was listed for $32.5 million last month, per Mansion Global

At 0.43 acres, the estate is one of the larger lots on the street, and the land value alone is expensive, listing agents Waltman and Howard said in a joint statement.

“With today’s building restrictions between the city and the coastal commission, you would not be able to build this house on that site today — it just cannot be duplicated,” the agents said.

There are floor-to-ceiling glass windows throughout the home for residents to enjoy panoramic views while indoors.

The Crescent House is currently owned by Lance Williams and Eileen Quinn, a couple who primarily lives on Fisher Island in Miami. This estate is their vacation home.

While most homes have one or two great views, this mansion is an exception, according to Quinn. “You have views all day long, 24 hours a day. You have views of the ocean, views of Encinitas hillside, views of the beautiful architecture itself,” she said, per the factsheet.

The home comes with four bedrooms and four full bathrooms.

Cunningham designed the house in such a way that all the main rooms, including the living room and master bedroom, were placed on the top floor for the best views.

“This house happens to be upside down with all of the principal rooms located on the top level,” Cunningham said in a statement, per the factsheet sent to Insider.

There are multiple ways for residents to move between floors, including ramps, metal staircases, and an elevator. 

“Each path is designed to shield you from the street and neighboring properties,” he said. For example, the lower ramp creates a wall that protects the garden, terrace, and swimming pool from prying eyes.

Part of the charm of the estate also lies in its location, according to the agents.

“Encinitas, this North County San Diego coastal region, is like paradise. It has a very stunning coastline with varying elevations and bluffs,” the agents said, per the factsheet.

As a result of the beautiful landscape, there is strong buyer interest in properties in the area, the agents said. “Inventory continues to be incredibly low with multiple offers on virtually all listings.”
