Framed by a colonnade of fragrant white rosebushes, the picturesque entrance of this romantic Castillo in The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe offers a hint of the enchantment that awaits beyond its massive 12' hand-carved doors. A dramatic foyer with curving staircase and overhead bridge sets the stage for sublime living and entertaining in an expansive 2-level design that is embellished with tumbled-stone flooring, handsome archways, stained wood Palladian windows, soaring ceilings with oversized douglas fir beams, carved stone fireplaces, and an abundance of richly carved woods that adorn all cabinetry and the library/office. The estate’s unique character and personality are further enlivened by custom light fixtures, an intimate formal dining room with private courtyard and fountain, barrel ceilings, custom paint, extensive use of large French doors, hand-forged wrought-iron railings, a game room with balcony, a dedicated media-ready room and 2 powder rooms. A main-floor master suite reveals a private oasis with immediate access to the pool and spa, dual dressing and grooming areas, a steam shower and 2 large closets. Three additional en-suite bedrooms are featured, and a private 2-room guest apartment is accessible by a separate stairway. Day-to-day living and grand-scale entertaining are effortless thanks to a stunning, fully appointed chef’s kitchen that opens to a great room with full pub-style bar and temperature-controlled wine room. Vacation year-round in a spectacular backyard with fireplace-warmed loggia, beach-entry pool with multiple waterfalls, and a covered BBQ pavilion with bar seating. The Bridges’ guard-gated environment is home to a private club, championship golf, and tennis and gym facilities.
