This $29 Million SoCal Estate Is Like Having Your Own Private 5-Star Resort

Who needs to book a PJ for a far-flung vacation when you own a resort-style home worthy of a five-star rating? Southern California certainly has its fair share of impressive estates, but this $29 million home in sleepy Rancho Santa Fe, California, about 25 miles north of San Diego, offers resort-like amenities on a tranquil 14-acre parcel.

Referred to as Castillo Pacifico by its current owners, the home was built in 2003 yet still looks brand new. It’s situated in the exclusive Covenant, an exclusive gated neighborhood with 270-degree ocean and mountain views. You enter the home through a private driveway and are greeted with a circular motor court, which is anchored by a large sculpture and manicured landscaping.

The estate offers numerous outdoor spaces amid groomed grounds.

Crafted from honed white Texas limestone, Corten steel, Venetian plaster, and exotic woods, including mahogany and Imbuia Brazilian walnut, no expense was spared when it came to the materials. The home sprawls over 15,000 square feet, with eight bedrooms complemented by 10 full bathrooms and four more half-bathrooms. The expansive living spaces overlook the lush grounds, and, as the owners are art lovers, broad corridors provide plenty of space for displaying a museum’s worth of art and artifacts.

There’s a large kitchen with a center island and a nearby dining area that connects to the back terrace, while a CEO-worthy executive office suite is complete with a private entrance, conference room, and bar.

The lower level features a gym and a spa bathroom, along with a catering kitchen and staff apartment that has a full kitchen and bathroom of its own. Also on this level is a lounge with folding doors that open directly onto the championship-designed tennis court. Watch friends and family play sets as you enjoy a cool beverage in air-conditioned comfort!

The home is crafted using the finest materials, like Imbuia Brazilian walnut flooring.

Castillo Pacifico stands out for its many outdoor areas. A patio with multiple seating areas runs the length of the home, and there are several outdoor fireplaces, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, a swimming pool and spa, and covered and heated entertainment pavilions.

Another attractive part of the estate are the park-like grounds, which include a sculpture and meditation garden, exotic trees, and fragrant flower beds. Groomed hiking paths wind through the property, so you never have to leave home to commune with nature. And finally, whether for live-in staff or additional space to host guests, a detached guest house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a kitchen and lounge, and the garage accommodates eight cars.

Listed with K. Ann Brizolis of Sotheby’s International Realty, the property is perfect for those seeking a private sanctuary close to the ocean and the San Diego area’s many restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.
