Perched above the 4thfairway at the iconic guard-gated golf community of The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe, this custom view-enriched property has recently undergone a significant transformation to become the enclave’s fresh and exciting new standard for luxuriously sophisticated living. Its southern exposure provides the optimal setting for a sun-filled interior with 5 bedrooms and 2 office retreats. Year-round indoor/outdoor living is enhanced by slide-away cabana doors that create a seamless transition between the two venues. A restaurant-caliber kitchen with access to a covered and heated loggia provides endless entertaining and dining options complemented by an oversized island, handsome cabinetry, light granite countertops, a farmhouse-style sink, prep sink, nook, Dutch door, stainless steel appliances and a refrigerator with glass door. Stately and contemporary, the residence showcases a 2-story foyer with grand staircase, a built-in aquarium, crown molding, hand-crafted casings and trim, custom designer paint, stone and pecan flooring and dramatic iron work. Impressive fireplaces lend distinction to formal living and dining rooms, a great room with extensive built-ins, the loggia and the master bedroom and bath. A temperature-controlled wine cellar features a "wall of wine" and a unique companion display closet for glasses, crystal, china and serving pieces. Additional amenities include a 2nd-floor view deck, a wood-paneled library/office, and a special double golf cart garage. Exquisite grounds feature elegant hardscaping, fountains, a pool, spa and large paver-finished driveway. Located within the acclaimed Roger Rowe School District, The Bridges provides residents with an opportunity for casual yet refined country club living at its best, all moments from beaches, recreation, dining and shopping.
