Nestled within Rancho Santa Fe’s scenic gated community of The Groves, this beautifully remodeled Spanish hacienda offers an exceptionally private and elegant setting that promotes carefree California living. A long, gated driveway is your first hint of the world of serene luxury that awaits here, with a private grove, verdant landscaping and mature shade trees embracing a sprawling residence of approximately 4,308 square feet. Enter through the courtyard gate and discover a hidden garden that complements the entry and its adjoining covered porch. Open and airy interior spaces showcase vaulted open-beam ceilings, custom fireplaces, wood and travertine flooring, plantation shutters, dramatic archways, designer paint and handsome lighting fixtures. French doors open living spaces to the outdoors, and large windows frame views of the picturesque setting. Spacious formal and casual areas are served by a custom gourmet kitchen with wood ceiling, island with seating, stainless steel Viking appliances and Old World-style wood cabinetry. Three bedrooms, an office and 3.5 baths are on display, and a versatile 2 nd -floor bonus room with view deck easily becomes an optional 4 th bedroom. A grand motorcourt leads to an oversized 3-car garage with epoxy flooring and built-in furniture-quality cabinetry. Enjoy private outdoor entertaining in a backyard with pool and spa, a fireplace, covered patio, built-in BBQ, outdoor kitchen and spacious lawn. The Groves is part of the top-rated Rancho Santa Fe School District, and residents enjoy easy access to recreation, fine dining, shopping, equestrian trails and, nearby, miles of sun-drenched beaches.
