Welcome to "Casa de Vesta" an early California hacienda with panoramic views tucked inside the gated community of The Preserve at the top of the coveted Del Mar Mesa. Enter this custom, private retreat through beautiful alder wood gates to discover a charming center courtyard with loggia that connects most rooms in this open and versatile floor plan to the heart of the property. Set in a landscape palate that consists of colorful native California plants and trees including California peppers, olive and citrus and large boulders and indigenous rock accents throughout, this estate is picturesquely reminiscent of a native California countryside. The spacious foyers and generously sized rooms continue to exude authentic style in the warmth of natural tones, high ceilings and exposed wooden beams. The main residence features 5 en-suite bedrooms, an optional room as well as an upstairs office with balcony and direct, exterior access. Located within the courtyard is a separate one-bedroom, one-bath guest suite with wet bar, fireplace and separate entrances. The first floor owner's retreat allows for the convenience of single level living in the spaciousness of a two-story home. A truly grand great room features a natural rock fireplace with hand hewn Douglas Fir mantle and dark stained hickory wood floors. The perfect setting for informal and formal gatherings, it seamlessly connects the indoors to the outdoors by way of glass sliding wall panels. The well appointed gourmet kitchen boasts top of the line stainless steel appliances, large center island, walk-in pantry and ample sized ‘eat-in nook'. Enjoy fine dining just off the kitchen through the butler's pantry in the intimate and romantic setting of the elegant dining room that features a temperature controlled wine room and fireplace.
