An extraordinary estate on the west side of the highly desirable Rancho Santa Fe Covenant, this stately residence sits on a flat lot of more than two acres at the end of a long, private drive. Renovated with exquisite taste, contemporary elegance, and the finest craftsmanship and finishes, it is truly an entertainer’s dream.

Wide, arched openings between rooms allow easy traffic flow and the play of light through huge windows. A formal foyer sets the tone, with its fanlight, high ceiling, wide-plank hardwood floors, and grand staircase with beautiful scrollwork rail and Juliet balcony above. The exceedingly comfortable interior features a formal living room and a dining room with French doors opening onto the serene grounds.

The gorgeously remodeled gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with a center island, breakfast area, stainless Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador 48″ range, wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher, and beautifully finished wood cabinetry. The kitchen opens onto a great room with coffered ceilings and French doors that invite exploration of the home’s patio and gardens. There are two master suites, one on each level, and three additional family bedrooms. The upper master has a fireplace, French doors to the deck, and a fully functional elevator to the lower level.

The resort-like expansive grounds are designed to impress, with an oversized lagoon-style pool and spa, waterfall, regulation tennis court, basketball area, covered patio, and manicured lawns. The property is served by the city sewer system and natural gas. It is in the highly acclaimed Rancho Santa Fe School District and just minutes from R. Roger Rowe Elementary School. There is spacious storage in the attached four-car garage as well as uncovered parking for an additional six cars.

With plenty of room for the development of a vineyard, guest house, or horse-riding ring, this unique estate is just minutes to beaches, shopping, and dining.
