Resting on nearly 1.83 acres amongst the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe lies a true Mediterranean masterpiece. Inspired by Lilian Rice’s California colonial style, the approximately 8,249 square foot residence encompasses 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms including a four-bedroom guest house with a 3-car attached garage and fitness facility. Built in 2013, its red tile roof, stucco finishes, arches, courtyards, and balcony echoes the haciendas along the Mediterranean Coast.
A circular motor court lined with bountiful bougainvillea bushes, lush landscaping, and trickling fountain leads to a stately front entrance. A wrought iron and glass double door opens to reveal several grand living spaces that boast deep wood tones, stone fireplaces, beamed ceilings, and arched motifs, creating a sense of warmth mixed with Old-World charm and sophistication.
An inspired kitchen with high-end appliances, rustic cream cabinetry, rich earth-toned countertops and paint selections, and detailed chandelier is any chef’s dream. Adjacent, find a formal dining room boasting a recessed ceiling centered on a dazzling crystal chandelier and a casual eating area with wood-beamed rotunda and iron chandelier with vintage appeal. The master bedroom is undoubtedly a treat—relax by the fireplace or indulge in the exquisite closet space which includes a full size washer dryer. Also residing on the main floor, a home theater and two-story office with spiral staircase.
Beyond the home itself, an extravagant outdoor space awaits. A covered lanai area with two ceiling heaters opens to fireplace with flat screen TV above. A separate outdoor entertainment area with Mugnaini wood burning pizza oven and Lynx outdoor grill with rotisserie is ideal for hosting intimate alfresco evenings. Meandering pathways travel to a vegetable garden with raised planter beds and blue-tiled pool and spa.
