Crowning a 14-acre plateau in the picturesque hills of Rancho Santa Fe’s exclusive Covenant, this iconic, gated sanctuary is graced with rare 270° ocean and mountain views. On the exterior, ancient honed white Texas Limestone is juxtaposed with sleek, modern Cor-Ten Steel, glass and rich Mahogany to create a contemporary mosaic of unique materials. The interior, with its rich, luxurious Imbuia Brazilian Walnut flooring and walls of Venetian plaster, fashioned from marble dust, creates a canvas of intrinsic natural beauty resulting in a masterpiece lovingly christened by its owner as “Castillo Pacifico”. Museum-sized hallways provide ample display areas for art and artifacts. Six generous en-suite bedrooms are woven into living, dining, cooking and relaxing spaces, each surrounded by sweeping panoramic views. The executive office, with its conference room, powder room and bar, may be accessed by a private entrance. On the lower level, a staff apartment with full kitchen and bathroom adjoins a recreation area that features a gym, spa bathroom and catering kitchen, all with easy access to the championship-designed tennis court. A detached two-bedroom, 2-bath guesthouse with kitchen and lounge is surrounded by fragrant gardens, exotic trees and groomed hiking paths. A gated driveway gently meanders to the courtyard with its welcoming circular motor court. Once inside, guests will marvel at the indoor spaces and magnificent Pacific Ocean views. Castillo Pacifico was designed for indoor-outdoor living that could only happen in its near perfect climate. Outdoors, sculpture and meditation gardens blend with covered and heated entertainment pavilions, a fully equipped kitchen, pool, spa, vendor’s lounge and an 8-car attached garage. Seamless movement between indoors and the rest of its 14 acres, add to the peace, tranquility and security of this iconic estate.
