Best of Show, Architect Division, by Thomas Shesh: Homes with terrific views or in homey neighborhoods were selected Homes of the Year in San Diego Magazine’s 2003 reader contest. From the mountains to the ocean, canyons to sea bluffs, Mother Nature has blessed San Diego with great view opportunities for homes. The four winning entries range from a Rancho Bernardo mountainside retreat to a modern Del Mar beachfront; a La Jolla hillside aerie to a Norman Rockwellian Mission Hills classic.

Japanese by affinity, South African by birth and affiliation, the couple who called on San Diego–based Wallace E. Cunningham to design their retirement home in Southern California are connoisseurs of landscapes. What convinced the husband and wife to buy the three-acre property was the near 360-degree panorama fanning across miles of a lush valley, with ranches and citrus groves rolling to the foothills of mountains in the distance.
