The beauty, privacy, location and stunning Western views of this single story, Rancho Santa Fe Covenant estate cannot be overstated. Gracing a prime Covenant location, this magnificent 4.55 acre view site is gated and lushly landscaped ---and very private. From the moment you step onto the estate grounds, you are enveloped in the sensuous ambiance of the Italian countryside, with pepper and olive trees dotting the landscape, and the soothing sound of water splashing and cascading. Impressive hand forged iron entry gates offer privacy and a hint of the extravagance within. Enter the gates, drive past the two guest casitas (one could be an office, billiards room, etc.), to the main residence. The residence beckons, with large-yet intimate and inviting rooms that flow effortlessly into one another and to the outdoors...onto sheltered loggias and to the dazzling pool with cobalt blue Italian tile, 50 foot aqueduct water feature, a 3 hole putting green and a hillside of citrus trees. The main house encompasses 5 exceptionally appointed bedrooms with 6 full and one half-bath. Adorned in the finest materials--distressed Walnut flooring, Albertini doors and windows, hand cut and laid mosaic tiles, imported fabrics, honed granite, antique tiles, custom hand carved walnut cabinetry and detailing, artisan hand carved Canterra stone fireplaces, hand forged iron gates, custom light fixtures, distressed wood beams, leaded glass windows, and extensive hand painting and faux work throughout. Of the myriad highlights are the impressive chef's kitchen, breakfast area and extra-large family room with a spectacular vaulted, open beam truss ceiling, built in entertainment center and hand carved Canterra fireplace. The private and romantic master suite has his and her custom appointed dressing rooms, a sumptuous spa bath, coffee/juice bar and an exercise room. There is a hand carved Walnut flanked executive office/library or Trophy room, spacious dining room with fireplace that flows out to the private garden, perfect for alfresco dining, and a fabulous formal living room with French doors leading to a private court yard. Outdoors enjoy the numerous verandas, covered loggia, summer kitchen, fire place for fireside lounging, wonderful gardens, rolling lawns and sunset views. There is an oversized four car garage and a detached one car garage. Security with exterior cameras. Seven fireplaces. Every amenity lovingly chosen and of the highest quality.
