As a city that is regularly recognized for its high-income residents, its large-parcel homes, and its historic “Covenant,” Rancho Santa Fe enjoys a rich pedigree and a reputation for luxury. The Covenant is indeed an “historic part of Rancho Santa Fe” that was formed by the Rancho Santa Fe Association in 1927 to ‘insure the “preservation, maintenance, development, and improvement of property’ in accordance with the wishes of property owners and in conformance with the general community plan,” according to Wikipedia.

This amenity-rich community that includes the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club, The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, and 50 miles of horse trails, is one of the most desirable communities in southernmost California as well as a California Historical Landmark and Cultural Landmark Designation.

Today, a selection of these storied country homes are being re-imagined as the “Cavaricci Collection.” The first home in the collection, has completed its 15-month top-to-toe renovation and come out the other side shiny and new.

The iconic property on 1.53 acres on the golf course’s 5th tee is a California eclectic villa that retains all the spirit of the original Covenant with modern appointments, sleek finishes, and internationally inspired design details.

Four spacious en-suite bedrooms including a two-bedroom guest suite are included in the 6,247-square-foot home, which inspires awe right from the first glance. Opening into a large living room, the home reveals rich plank hardwood floors contrasted against crisp white walls. A curving staircases serves as art in the space, with abundant windows bathing it in light. In the pristine dining room, a view out to the resort pool and sliding doors that erase the separation between indoors and out create an inviting atmosphere.
