Set on 3.8 manicured acres, the family-friendly residence features a 30x50-foot resort-style pool, a guest house, and sits directly adjacent to the horse trail. Enter through the gated driveways on either side, where a fountain made from a 16th century limestone baptismal font serves as the centerpiece for this grand manor. With elegantly-curved walls, soaring spaces, French chateau limestone floors, and 9 indirect custom grandiose fireplaces, the extraordinary custom design is assured to fit any taste. The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, including a professional Thermador cooktop, 2 Thermador ovens, a Subzero refrigerator, and separate Subzero freezer. Outside, the large patio includes an outdoor kitchen and bar with Viking appliances and overlooks the flagstone pool with 12 Italianate water arches. 7 bedrooms and 7.5 extraordinary bathrooms with exquisite marbles and granites woven into intricate patterns add to the spa-like setting, and provide a peaceful retreat for guests at the end of a long day in the Southern California sunshine. Registered as a historic landmark, The Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe is one of the most desirable and exclusive communities in the United States. Once home to many of old Hollywood’s greatest— Bing Crosby and Mary Pickford to name a few—this timeless community exudes ease and charm.

With over 11 beautiful acres in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe, The Rancho Riding Club is perfect for equestrian enthusiasts who are looking to board or train their horses. Leisure and luxury surround you with the Del Mar Race Track, horse trails, hiking trails, medical facilities, dining, shopping, hot air balloon watching, and the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Only 30 minutes from San Diego, enjoy some of the finest elementary – high school, and public and private universities, a thriving economy, and an average daily temperature of 71 degrees.
