Author and alternative medicine guru Deepak Chopra is looking to unload his La Jolla, California, home for $5.65 million.
Mr. Chopra, 74, a trained and licensed physician who became an important figure in the New Age movement in late 1980s, and his wife, Rita, bought the property in 1993 for $2.2 million, property records show.
The home, built in 1993 on more than a quarter-acre lot, has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It features high ceilings and walls of glass, views of the ocean and the Torrey Pines Golf Course, according to the listing posted last week by Susana Cohen Corrigan and Patty Cohen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices La Jolla.
The 5,863-square-foot home also includes a media room, a family room and an office. Outdoors, there is a landscaped backyard, a swimming pool, a spa and parking for three cars, according to the listing.
“The home is very airy and has a tremendous amount of volume,” Ms. Corrigan said. “Almost every room has views, and some of the best, encompassing views in La Jolla.”

“It should come as no surprise that Deepak and Rita Chopra deeply enjoyed living in this home,” she said, adding that they have entertained a slew of famous people in the house.
The property is reasonably priced to sell, as the Chopras are spending most of their time in New York, Ms. Corrigan said.
Mr. Chopra, who could not be immediately reached for comment, has authored more than 90 books, including New York Times bestsellers such as “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” and “Quantum Healing.”
Mr.. Chopra became chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital in 1980. Later, he became involved in alternative medicine and spirit, mind and body wellness. In 1993, he gained a following after he was interviewed about his books and his friendship with Michael Jackson on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
The Los Angeles Times first reported the listing.
