Located in the highly-coveted community of Rancho Santa Fe, set on nearly 3-acres of Covenant grounds, 16409 Via De Santa Fe, is truly a work of art. Designed by Dena Gillespie and masterfully built by Weir Construction, this Spanish Revival style estate home boasts over 12,000 square feet of stunning living spaces, including the seven-bedroom main residence, as well as a separate guest casita. With sumptuous common areas including the expansive Great Room, executive office and gourmet kitchen. Patterned after the homes of early Rancho Santa Fe architect, Lillian Rice, this Dena Gillespie masterpiece on approx. 2.98 acres is an achievement in Spanish Revival design that blends exquisite finishes to pique curiosity at every turn. A breezy courtyard punctuated by lush landscaping and stone accents introduces the 12,000+ SF residence encompassing a separate guest ensuite and seven-bedroom main residence. Upon crossing the home’s threshold, the residence boasts sumptuous common areas including formal living and dining rooms, an executive office or library, billiards room and chef’s kitchen that opens to the great room fit with stunning full wall fireplace and grand lift and slide doors which open to the outdoor covered loggia. Note the Wine Grotto which is tucked in within the great room and outdoor area. The estate’s exterior living offers an unparalleled venue for entertaining, showcasing an incredible pool and spa with exciting fountain features and dining pavilion. Another great escape is the Guest Courtyard which has it’s own fireplace and can be accessed from the dining room on a balmy summer evening. Travertine and granite of various depths and color adorn the estate’s floors and counter tops, while designer wall coverings and lighting bring a refined warmth to the setting. Lavish master suite features an outdoor terrace, retreat with fireplace and oversized spa-like bath. With nearly every room in the home having access to a balcony, loggia or patio, this estate perfectly complements the Southern California lifestyle. The rooms in the home are generously sized, yet the design offers the feeling of a comfortable scale. The curves of the entry and peek-a-boo arches give one a sense of mystery to find out what is beyond the immediate view. A combination of textural strength and delicate details which, by its contrast, excites the visual experience. Additional highlights include numerous oversized storage areas, a 4-car garage, and Crestron home automation with lighting, security, A/V, smoke and fire sprinkler integrations, additional spaces for home gym and media theatre room with separate entrances. Located close to championship golf courses, Del Mar beaches, five-star shopping and dining, this distinguished residence hits all the marks.
