This Tuscan villa is sited on a spectacular rolling ridge overlooking the San Dieguito Valley with views of the hills of Rancho Santa Fe and the golf course. Ideal for Southern California contemporary living, this 11,000+ square foot estate is an elegant solution for those who enjoy entertaining formally or at a more casual pace–or both.
Starting at the captivating stone circular driveway, which surrounds a tranquil water fountain, this one-owner Mediterranean style estate exudes sunny warmth via its Old World stone facades and tiered red tile roof lines. Around the corner through “just right” mature landscaping is a six-car garage area, which leads to the beautiful garden setting in the back. Here guests and homeowners enjoy a spacious pool and spa area, complete with a manicured pro-style putting green and sand trap. Views from two rear facing levels of patios and balconies include the hills of Rancho Santa Fe and a valley scene of a thoroughbred horse racing facility and country club golf, which are all visible from a myriad of clerestory and picture windows.
Central to the interior of this five plus bedroom home is a two-story atrium surrounded by balconies. The footprint of the encompassing great room contains the kitchen, dining and family room. Endless amenities include a covered barbecue/outdoor entertainment patio off the great room, a wine room, office areas, billiard room with handsome tin/copper ceiling, sound absorbing home theater with seating for eight , multiple fireplaces, added custom mirrors, laundry room, central vacuum system, upstairs recreation room, guest bedrooms with living rooms and baths. The magnificent furnishings harmonize with in-place stone work, alder wood cabinetry throughout and black walnut coffered ceilings, trims and paneling. Added values include nearly six figures of gym workout equipment, Crestron home automation, Lutron HomeWorks lighting controls and top of the line appliances.
