Surrounded by a bountiful, fragrant orange grove, and recently stylishly redecorated, this single-level European-inspired estate occupies an elevated location within the prestigious, guard-gated golf and tennis community of The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe. The home is built around a private, sun-drenched center courtyard where a prominent fireplace, a mature specimen olive tree and a massive wooden door create a sense of privacy and peaceful relaxation. Three en-suite bedrooms include a sumptuous master suite with its own wet bar, fireplace, oversized walk-in closets and two elegant, separate full bathrooms. The three-room guest casita is accessed via a separate courtyard entrance and provides guests a private, VIP environment. The grand formal living and dining rooms, with numerous pairs of French doors on two sides and adjacent to a refrigerated wine room are ideal venues for effortless entertaining. A restaurant-quality main kitchen with its two islands and a separate "prep" kitchen are fully equipped with professional-grade appliances and are enveloped within rich cabinetry and surrounded by stone slab countertops. A warm, inviting wood-paneled and quilted fabric office/library features oversized windows that capture views of the orange grove and beyond. Outdoors, the pool with its waterfall and spa, and the covered living and dining room loggia, heated by an oversized fireplace, provide a resort-like ambiance for year-round, alfresco living that the ideal San Diego climate has to offer. An attached 5-car garage, an available Bridges Club Membership and the Rancho Santa Fe lifestyle add to the overall desirability of this property.
