With an elegant French ambiance and unsurpassed attention to detail, this exquisitely crafted and refreshingly updated custom manor in guard-gated Fairbanks Ranch is embraced by a private 1.07-acre homesite. Nestled in the heart of the community, the estate reveals a circular motorcourt that leads to an enchanting residence with a hint of storybook charm, accentuated by towering circular chimneys with a diamond brick pattern, bold brick columns, a new roof, an abundance of multi-paned windows and French doors, and elegant leaded-glass entry doors. Traditional white paneling, wainscoting and crown molding embellish living areas, which include a formal living room, formal dining room with sparkling chandelier, a great room with pub-style bar, 4 ensuite bedrooms, and an octagonal office with wood paneling and built-ins. Sophisticated French design is also showcased in a remodeled kitchen complete with granite countertops, a casual dining area, stainless appliances and a cabinet-matched built-in refrigerator. The two-level design lives like a palatial one-story floorplan, with the master suite located downstairs and complemented by patio access, a sitting area with fireplace, separate retreat, and chic bath with jetted tub. Vaulted and coffered ceilings, solid wood interior doors, wood and marble flooring, recessed lighting, plantation shutters and graceful window treatments lend an added layer of warmth and style. The second floor hosts a versatile loft with towering open-truss ceiling that is ideal as a game or media room. Beautiful landscaping distinguishes peaceful grounds that offer a large pool and spa, extensive patios for entertaining, and a porte cochere that separates the main house from a 4-car garage and spacious guest house with family room, bedroom and kitchen. Fairbanks Ranch is just minutes away from the village of Rancho Santa Fe and is home to a world-renowned golf course, clubhouse, a lake, tennis and equestrian facilities, meandering trails and private access to the top-rated Solana Santa Fe Elementary School.
