A beach home is pretty desirable, but when your career requires you to be in the snow all day long, its appeal increases.

Rather than pick up a home in Telluride, COPark City, UT or somewhere else within boarding distance of the ski lift, professional snowboarder Shaun White chose to buy a house in Encinitas, CA.

The carrot-topped Olympian dropped $3.85 million on the 3-bed, 3-bath home situated right on the bluffs above the beach. Floor-to-ceiling windows capture views of the Pacific Ocean, and the living spaces open out to an extensive deck with fire pit. Stairs provide easy access to the beach below.

Measuring 3,501 square feet, White’s new home was built in 1999 and was last listed for $4.25 million; he scored a 9.4 percent discount when he purchased the place in August.
