6934 Las Colinas, Rancho Santa Fe Covenant
Located up a long private gated cobblestone driveway, passing ponds, waterfalls and lush landscaping, sits one of the most dramatic Lilian Rice Estates. This was the first home built on Las Colinas and under Lilian’s direction, was later enlarged to a two-story 5 bedroom Colonial Revival Spanish Style Estate complete with a generously sized pool with flowered covered colonnades, leading from the house to the pool. The first owners were well connected with old Hollywood and this home rapidly became the place to entertain. A self-contained 2 bedroom carriage house complete with living room and kitchen overlooks the full regulation tennis court and the lushly landscaped grounds. The grand social living room is comparable to the great room of the historic Rancho Santa Fe Inn and it is easy to see that both were built by Lilian Rice. Every aspect of the home, from the lath and plaster walls, to the beautiful wood, tile and carpeted floors, wet bar, wine cellar, his and her master baths, 4 fireplaces, and kitchen with stone counters and new appliances, show the amount of thought and care put into the design of the home. Come experience one of the premier estates in Rancho Santa Fe. $5,495,000
