Welcome to 2498 Vantage Way, fully rebuilt in 2005 with stunning quality architectural design elements and high-end finishes throughout, this Mediterranean masterpiece offers just under 4,300 square feet of living space with 3 full bedrooms, an office and loft - which were builder options for bedroom 4 and 5 -plus a 2-car garage. Enter the home through a hand carved solid wood front door and step into the formal living room with two-story high coffered ceilings, high windows, a fireplace, and rich travertine flooring extending up the curving staircase with wrought iron railing. The kitchen is beautifully designed with distressed hardwood floors, custom cabinets, granite beveled edge countertops with a large center island, dual sub-zero refrigerators and a high end stainless steel appliance package consisting of a wolf 6 burner cook top, Miele dishwasher and dual décor ovens and microwave. The kitchen opens up into the family room which offers custom built-ins, wet bar, controls to the whole house audio, access to the back yard and a social, yet informal, room for family and guests. The formal dining room has seating for 6 – 8, a custom built in china cabinet and the faux-finished walls and hardwood floors give it an elegant, warm feel. An exceptional hallway with Italian plaster walls, arched doorways and custom tile inlays leads you to two downstairs bedrooms, each with deep closets fitted with custom closet organizers, and one of the bedrooms has direct access to the back yard; just outside is a full bath as well as a powder room for guests. Upstairs you are first met with the sophisticated loft, open to the formal living room below and separated with wrought iron railings - showcasing wood paneled wainscoting - and connected to a Jack & Jill Bath as this was on optional bedroom 5 per the builder’s plans. The next room is an optional bedroom 4, also connected to the Jack & Jill bath, but built out as an office with custom built-ins and desk, showcasing extraordinary views of mountains to the north. The Master Bedroom Suite is truly magnificent with double-door entry, full crown molding, cozy fireplace and romantic balcony with incredible panoramic views, dual walk in closets fitted with custom built-ins and organizers. The spa inspired master bath features a built in sauna, deep soaking tub, separate shower with three shower heads, extraordinary limestone tile floors and beveled granite countertops. With an 84 foot lap pool with Baja shelf, private spa, a built in BBQ island with Viking grill & refrigerator, gas fire pit and northerly facing views, the back yard is an amazing place for entertaining or relaxing on those sunny Del Mar days. Additional high-quality features of this home include dual zone AC, Pella Windows and doors, two-ply Spanish tile roof, smooth texture stucco exterior finish, whole house sound with Bose speakers, woodharbor solid wood panel doors and so much more.
