Featured as the heart and soul of Santaluz while it served as the exclusive community’s original sales and welcome center, it naturally boasts the finest homesite and location. Now, after a phenomenal remodel, “Santaluz House” is available as a one-of-a-kind estate with grand proportions and unyielding attention to detail. One of the larger homesites in Santaluz at nearly 2 acres, grounds are unparalleled, with hillside, Black Mountain and valley views enriching a lagoon-inspired pool and spa with rock features, waterfalls, a fabulous entertainment patio, enormous play yard, private courtyard with graceful oak tree, putting green, shade arbor with fireplace, an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven and BBQ, and an inviting circular driveway. Countless stained-wood French doors and windows bring the light and beauty of outdoor spaces indoors, where a sprawling open one-level floorplan extends approximately 6,989 square feet and presents 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a guest casita, expansive living and great rooms with open-beamed ceilings, wood and stone flooring, dramatic arches, a bonus room, and an office with light wood paneling. Exceptionally private, the estate is distinguished by a chef-inspired kitchen with oversized island, large breakfast room, high ceiling, stainless appliances, and a pro-level multi-burner range with artistic custom hood overhead. An art gallery and fireplace complement a romantic master suite that hosts a sitting area, dual walk-in closets with built-ins, a jetted tub and patio. The 3,800-acre guard-gated community of Santaluz is one of California’s finest addresses, home to a Reese Jones-designed golf course, a village green, miles of trails, and Hacienda Santaluz, a resort-caliber members-only clubhouse with jr. Olympic-sized swimming pool, fitness facilities, tennis courts and, just for children, Camp Santaluz. Del Mar beaches are close to home, and fine dining, shopping and recreation is nearby.
