The Grand Hotel Del Mar. Anyone who has had the privilege of staying in the resort that was named the top hotel in the United States by TripAdvisor knows full well it offers more than luxury accommodations. The same could be said of 6855 Spyglass Lane, a truly magnificent estate that brings the Del Mar mystique to the heart of Rancho Santa Fe.
Multi-million-dollar renovations completed in 2013 have created a luxe estate on a desirable cul-de sac street in a guard-gated neighborhood that stands as an homage to Hotel Del Mar architect Addison Mizner’s Mediterranean masterpiece. With a combination of old world charm and five-star luxury, amazing spaces for grand entertaining and modern amenities for everyday living, this home captivates from the very first glimpse. The impressive entrance is flanked by dual grand winding staircases. Beyond, European grandeur and intricate craftsmanship abounds, like in the luxurious dining room’s coffered ceilings, and the spacious family room’s velvet panels and gold leaf inserts.
The kitchen is a gourmet showplace, with granite countertops, professional appliances, custom cabinetry, a huge center island, and a separate stainless steel commercial catering kitchen. The master suite is a grand getaway, with a spa bath with marble counters and elevated Jacuzzi with romantic fireplace, and a walk-in closet to rival any celebrity.
This seven-bedroom residence also presents eight baths and two partials, a private office, a gym with dance studio, sauna, elevator, and a private, three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot guesthouse.
And just when you think you are done with the home that seemingly has everything, it’s time to discover a suite of amenities that ups the ante on entertainment potential: a wine room, state-of-the-art home theatre, private bowling alley, and even a disco room with DJ booth and bar.
The amenities are no less impressive outside, with a resort-style pool and spa with rock waterfall, ample patio space, a lighted tennis court, and lush landscaping.
