What an Oceanside 'bachelor pad' looks like
Alan Radi’s four-bedroom, three-bath high-ranch on the water in Oceanside was a serious bachelor pad in its day. It’s now too big for him, so he has put it on the market for $975,000. The bachelor is moving to Costa Rica and will split his time at another property in North Palm Beach, Fla.
The property is listed with Carla Raso of Ed McNulty Realty.
Radi, 67, had the house built in 1971 and did a major expansion and renovation in 2003. A 13-by-40-foot extension was added to the back. The dock can accommodate three boats and is home to his 36-inch Hatteras Express. To maximize time for recreation, the grass in the backyard was replaced with stone because Radi didn’t want to be “a slave to a lawn.”
The master bedroom has a deck, which accommodates a group hot tub. The master bath is equipped with a therapeutic tub. There also is a steam room that was put in for guests. And a music system runs through the living room, dining room, master bedroom and bath.
The life-size mural of the marlin on the wall of the dining room won’t let you forget the homeowner’s love of fishing.
