Surrounded by lush green hills and perched over the Gonzales canyon, this private luxury home is located in the private gated community of Rancho Pacifica known for its peaceful walking trails and lush beautiful landscapes. It’s only a short drive from the community gates to the home’s cul-de-sac.
As you arrive at the front motor-court you can hear the breeze flowing through palm trees and smell the sweet scent of the property’s oversized english roses. The outside of the home is elegantly understated and welcoming. As you enter the front door your attention is drawn to the large bay windows facing to the west as the sunshine filters through and dances across the dramatic stone fireplace and natural stone/wood flooring. It’s immediately a comfortable place to reside with lots of light and an airy feel.
The home truly lives like a single story with the master bedroom, office and secondary bedroom suite found on the first floor. The master bedroom (also facing west) offers privacy located solely on one side of the home. You’ll feel as if you are waking up in San Gimignano, Italy than sunny San Diego!
The office, which could also be used as another first-floor bedroom is paneled with solid walnut wood with its own stone fireplace; a quiet, peaceful place to tackle the day’s work.
As you make your way toward the heart of the home – the kitchen and great room – notice the subtle custom touches and thoughtful design decisions that make this home such a pleasure to live. The dining room is comfortably luxurious and just off the temperature controlled wine cave (making opening a bottle of wine even more special) and a sizable delightful kitchen with all professional appliances including dual Bosch dishwashers, a Viking 6-burner stove and griddle, double oven, warming drawer and large Dacor refrigerator making meals and entertaining a cinch. Serve meals at the grand island or in-kitchen banquette dining table all clad with antique white finishes and a farmhouse sink overlooking the lovely green hills beyond.
The great room just steps from the kitchen offers a separate bar area and beset by pocket doors that open the home to the west-southwest facing resort-like backyard with a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and outdoor living room complete with a bar, ice maker, TV and fireplace. With shade at the touch of a button, this room is usable all year round offering spectacular sunset views over the hills.
Upstairs are three more bedroom suites with oversized closets and private terraces. These three bedrooms are gathered around an upstairs living area perfect for a media center, homework or play area for children or guests.
A completely finished 4-car garage with cabinets for ample storing capabilities.
Privacy, light and views from every window of this home make you feel far from it all but in reality shops, schools and restaurants are only a few minutes away. With 9,358 square feet of living space and a grand total of 6 bedrooms and 7.5 baths, this home is a perfect rhapsody of luxury, comfort and happiness.
