A gracious, lushly landscaped drive winds up to this hilltop retreat, where filtered sunlight and calm breezes whisper through the trees. Accented by magnificent mature trees and gardens that bloom year round, this private 1.38 acre property is a rare treasure. The property has been extensively renovated with the warmth of artisan stones, wood floors, beamed ceilings and new lighting throughout. Truly exceptional are the three interior stone fireplaces, the lead pane glass windows and the exquisite glass front doors.
The architectural style offers a seamlessly blended entry level that consists of a living room, dining room, family room, handsome master suite and an office or fourth bedroom. All rooms on the entry level open through French doors to a stunning flagstone terrace that wraps around the home to a covered outdoor living room with a stone fireplace that provides the ultimate setting for entertaining and year round al fresco dining.
A sumptuous master suite, located in its own wing, has French doors leading to outdoor patios and gardens, plus a luxurious bath with an oversized travertine tub and walk-in closets. An oversized upstairs bedroom suite, with an amazing amount of closet space, is ideal for children to share or perfect as a “granny flat”. Downstairs is a private bedroom suite, sauna and a marvelous game room that has multiple doors that lead to the Southwest facing salt water pool/spa that provide a year-round oasis for entertainment and relaxation.
This property is located in the highly respected and gated community of Fairbanks Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe, which offers its residents a spacious clubhouse, lake with waterfalls, walking & riding trails, equestrian center, tennis courts, park with sand volleyball, basketball, playground and barbecuing facilities as well as six new resident entrance gates and 24 hour security.
