St. James + Canter Luxury Real Estate Listed This World-Class Resort Property in Rancho Santa Fe.
Extraordinary vision, exquisite taste, and meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship create the perfect paradise, Casa Del Sol.
Surrounded by eight botanical garden-quality acres with hundreds of lush date palms, specimen trees, pines and rose gardens, its four structures and two magnificent pavilions are a setting for life at its richest.
In the six-bedroom main residence, large windows welcome panoramic views inside. High ceilings and stone archways, unique fireplaces, hardwood floors and granite surfaces exemplify the European ambience, from the open kitchen to the ground floor master suite. A comfortable, thirteen-seat movie theatre with upholstered suede walls and a live performance stage will entertain your most discerning guests
The path leading to the two-bedroom guest house features an Ashler pattern Ramon Gold stone fountain and Linen Flagstone steps. A 100-year-old Indian door opens to lovely, comfortable accommodations, warmed by a ceiling made of timbers from a Washington state railroad bridge, a 17th-century French fireplace and 18th-century French Borgogne pavers. Orange, grapefruit and lemon trees surround the guesthouse with their intoxicating aromas.
Below the guesthouse, a winding underground path with Israeli stone walls and candlelit sconces leads the way to a two-lane bowling alley and game room with computer-controlled scoring. Custom mahogany flooring and hand-carved black walnut pub furniture and an entry paved in flagstone from the streets of Yorkshire, England, set the tone. The ceiling is French Parfeuille, a brick used as insulation in European wine cellars.
Life in this world revolves around the spectacular outdoor living pavilion with its resort-style pool, poolside cabana/bar area, outdoor Buddha bar and lounge with fire/water feature, fully equipped outdoor barbecue, and fire pit fashioned from a 300-year-old stone millwheel. The dining area overlooks the glorious view of the palm court framed in roses.
In the astonishing European-inspired spa pavilion, collapsing walls open to the glorious gardens and azure sky. Amenities include his/hers baths and showers enriched by custom hand-shaped basket weave limestone, marble and travertine. A steam room and Roman spa room feature walls of intricate mosaic stones collected from fifteen countries. An Italian tile ceiling, Italian stone fountains, statues and columns add to the rich ambience. Intricate mosaic ceiling and floor detail throughout define the lavish tone.
Several walking paths wind through the breathtaking grounds, accented by benches that invite a pause to drink in the landscape. The delights you’ll encounter range from a lagoon garden with rainforest water lily pads and flashing Koi, traversed by a custom made stone bridge, to a perch atop a 200-foot waterfall with sweeping vistas of the verdant world below.
Casa del Sol was created to accommodate events on a grand scale: tented gatherings, weddings, fund-raisers and expansive entertaining. The magnificent palm court can seat 500 guests for a spectacular lawn event surrounded by roses in bloom. The adjacent north/south tennis court can accommodate an additional 500 guests and a stage. The driveway, measuring 1,000 feet, accompanies an extensive parking area and garage space for ten cars.
A gym with bath and steam shower, wet bar and bedroom; and a caretaker’s quarters with two one-bedroom apartments, a laundry and a dog-grooming station complete the setting.
The Village of Rancho Santa Fe, the beaches of Del Mar, and Palomar airport are all just minutes away.
