Enriched with an unparalleled view-oriented homesite that captures gentle ocean breezes, this custom Provencal Farmhouse in Rancho Santa Fe presents a sun-filled single-level floor plan by Island Architects that was awarded the 2003 Lilly Award for its centuries-old authenticity. On the market for the first time and located on one of The Covenant's most-desirable streets, the estate showcases the talents of Sharrett Construction, which incorporated the finest materials. Examples include imported vintage French oak beams, 18th Century fireplaces, floors of individually sanded and pillowed limestone, distressed pecan and antique French pavers, cherry and hardwood paneling and doors, cabinetry by French Traditions, and counters of marble, honed granite and imported, handmade tile. Steel hardware and light and plumbing fixtures imported from France all create an enduring ambiance without sacrificing modern convenience. Even the distinctive Genoise antique tile roof line with sun-kissed cut limestone surrounds and facade provides long lasting beauty while maintaining architectural authenticity. Half-century-old trees add shade and frame panoramic views that encompass rolling hills, twinkling lights and the legendary Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course. A saltwater vanishing-edge pool takes center stage in grounds that were designed by Thomas Church and enhanced by Theresa Clark. Experience San Diego's world-famous climate while enjoying a fireplace-warmed loggia, sprawling lawn, lush gardens, a convenient potager with garden-fresh vegetables, cobblestone drives and welcoming courtyards.
