Poised on an elevated view site overlooking the Rancho Santa Fe valley, this newly renovated, cool and contemporary and exquisitely appointed custom estate elevates Southern California’s dream-worthy lifestyle to dramatic heights. Open, airy and offering a sophisticated beach vibe, the contemporary residence greets guests with an open foyer with travertine and stone finishes that hint at the on-trend craftsmanship that awaits throughout the residence. The Zen-influenced home lives like a single-level floorplan with the first floor hosting 3 ensuite bedrooms, formal living and dining rooms, a wood-paneled library/office, and an intimate master suite with lounge and tranquil bath. This floor also displays a family room and a stunning kitchen with casual dining area, oversized granite island, a walk-in pantry, and top-of-the-line appliances including a commercial-grade 6-burner Viking range, a SubZero refrigerator and a warming drawer. Approximately 7,658 square feet, the 5-bedroom, 8.5-bath home is bathed in natural light, with coastal-chic color tones, high ceilings, crown molding, white oak tongue-and-groove flooring, an oversized 4-car garage, central vacuum system, stone slab base molding, high-end cabinetry, three newer fireplaces with slab stone surrounds, and extensive use of marble, granite and limestone. Upstairs awaits an additional ensuite bedroom, a flexible bonus room, and a separate cinema-caliber theater. The lushly landscaped 1.250-acre property has a spectacular resort-style backyard with a sunny southern orientation, a 54' pool with spa, 4,000 square feet of decking, an elevated gazebo with stone floor and tile roof, a beautiful granite and stone BBQ, and two spacious lawns. Hong Kong orchid, magnolia and jacaranda trees grace the front yard while fruit trees, evergreens and a multitude of flowering trees thrive in the private backyard.
