New to the market after a two-year remake, this French-inspired designer’s home with magnificent slate roof occupies one of the most private parcels in The Heritage and offers arresting views of the San Pasqual Valley open-space preserve. Rich landscaping is irrigated entirely from a deep well with new 2500-gallon underground holding tank. The home’s restyled interior is quiet and sophisticated. A bright, open entryway features beveled Italian travertine.
New French oak flooring leads on through a spacious yet uncomplicated floorplan. The formal living room features a 25-foot coffered ceiling, tasteful carved wood and iron chandeliers, an immense cast stone fireplace and four sets of French doors showcasing views of the valley and mountains beyond. Steps away is the heart of this home – an open-concept family room and chef’s kitchen, each with its own fireplace. The kitchen accommodates family dining and an adjacent bar and pantry provide ample additional storage. Paired Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer units and two Bosch dishwashers – all from Pirch of San Diego – are new additions. The brick and stone accented family room is large yet cozy, and features custom cabinetry for a 72” television. A large open doorway leads to the formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling walnut bookcases and cabinets. Other first-level rooms include a handsome office, a guest bedroom with oak flooring and marble bathroom, and two powder rooms. Up a curved staircase with custom iron railing, the three-room master suite and balcony await behind a pair of milled doors. French oak flooring, lovely millwork and a charming gas fireplace combine to make the routine act of turning in for the evening a much-anticipated reward. The master bath is tranquil and well-appointed – crema marble flooring with inset detail, a large soaking tub, gas fireplace and picture window with valley views. There are separate vanities, a spectacular marble shower room for two, and a large closet with built-ins and wood flooring. There are three additional bedrooms upstairs, each with its own full bath. A large, open lounging area is fitted with a desk and built-ins for students. This home is fenced and gated. There is an outdoor kitchen and bar area with fireplace, a large pool with infinity edge, water slide, grotto, waterfall and spa. There is also a fire pit, three fountains, and a five-car garage with loft and storage closets.
