A Rancho Santa Fe address is among the most prestigious in San Diego County. This high-end private community is known for its incredible amenities, vast acreage, and endless outdoor recreation. Recognized as one of the most exclusive and desired neighborhoods, Rancho Santa Fe is a beautiful oasis designed for luxury living.

Set high on a private cul-de-sac, enjoy endless views of the ocean, valleys and hillside beyond from this grand, gated property. Designed after hundreds of hours of research and three trips to Paris, Florence and Milan, this estate is a complimentary blend of Parisian elegance, Milanese minimalism and Tuscan legacy. Reminiscent of a majestic European villa, the foyer boasts an impressive stairway anchored by decorative pillars, arched ceilings, and a dazzling chandelier. Featuring limestone flooring, each room holds a sense of style and sophistication with fine details and finishes evoking elegance and grandeur.

The phenomenal chef’s kitchen features cabinetry knobs encircled in 48 Swarovski crystals, Wolf appliances, Sub Zero refrigerator, dual dishwashers, medallion pattered backsplash, and beautiful tumbled marble countertops. Doesn’t it make you want to whip up a batch of fresh croissants?

The elegantly staged formal dining room is a testament to baroque design with decorative plaster walls, lavish ceiling ornament highlighting the gorgeous chandelier, ornate moldings and crystal sconces. Beyond the French doors lies a 250-year-old fountain reclaimed from a Tuscan Palazzo.

The lounge infuses elements drawn from the world famous Hotel Costes, Florence’s Medici Palace, George V Hotel and Pershing Hall. The bar’s cabinetry was hand carved from Venetian glass and assembled on site. The quartzite bar is truly unique featuring hundreds of opaque gems that run throughout the natural veins of the backlit bar top. Each of the three chandeliers were custom built for a European church using only the highest quality lead crystal. The mirrored fireplace with herringbone stone inlay only further defines this luxurious space.

Beyond two custom doors lies the opulent master suite with a gracious retreat space, refreshment and beverage area, two fireplaces, balcony and exquisite chandeliers throughout. The master bath boasts 18 slabs of the finest quality Calcutta marble laid throughout the bath’s floors, shower, countertop and even the baseboards. Enjoy a glass of bubbly while soaking in that marvelous freestanding tub.
