This rare contemporary Craftsman estate is nestled among the trees atop a long driveway in prestigious Rancho Santa Fe’s West Covenant. Inspired by the famed Gamble House in Pasadena built by Greene & Greene, architect Andy Herbruck combined historic authenticity and charm with modern amenities in this 6,596 sf family home. A tranquil Asian garden with bubbling fountain, stone lantern, and bamboo fence sets the stage, while the custom stained glass and carved wood front door welcomes as you enter into the living room with a dramatic floor-to-ceiling river-rock fireplace. Handmade stained glass and leather chandeliers by renowned artisan David Frisk cast a warm light upon the formal dining room and great room, which includes a Craftsman pool table and built-in bar. Sunshine streams into the kitchen from the southwest, making the granite countertops, cabinets with glass doors, and stainless steel high-end appliances gleam. The U-shaped layout with 8 bedrooms and 5.5 baths provides the privacy of separate quarters for adults, kids, guests, and caretakers with swimming pool/spa and deck in the center – ideal for multi-generational use. The separate master suite feels like a spacious treehouse with vaulted beamed ceilings and views of green leaves and blue sky from every window and the private deck. Master amenities include two large walk-in closets, luxurious bath opposite a fireplace, office, and a secluded second spa. Featured on the cover of San Diego Home & Garden magazine, the iconic estate showcases rare Honduran mahogany French doors, moldings, built-in cabinetry, and wine cellar. Warm oak hardwood floors throughout the interior extend out to nearly 2,000 sf of redwood decks and balconies. The peaceful estate sits on 3.17 low-maintenance acres. While it feels like country living, the home is just minutes from Del Mar beach, shopping, easy freeway access, and the highly-ranked K-8 Rowe School. Walk across the street to San Dieguito Park with hiking trails and duck pond. San Diego International Airport is just 30 minutes away. Also for lease at $13,500/month furnished.
