PRIVATE TOUR: The Quintessential Socal Entertaining Retreat

565 Canyon Drive, Solana Beach

Living in Southern California can definitely spoil a person; another sunny day, another pretty view becomes par for the course. Then there are places so special, that embrace the lifestyle, the beauty, and the fun so completely, they cannot be taken for granted and are appreciated every single day.

Such is the case with this sprawling estate on over an acre in a secluded, yet convenient and coveted Solana Beach location. “This home is nestled in a wonderful Westside canyon with private gated entry and incredible views all the way to La Jolla,” shares Garret Milligan with Compass who represents the property. ”But what really sets it apart is the combination of lavish but comfortable, perfectly designed interiors and how those spaces all interact with the incredible luxury playground of amenities outdoors.”

The expansive grounds include such features as an elaborately-designed, free-form rock pool with waterslide, walled private patio with outdoor shower, a secluded “sports court” area, including basketball hoop, Volleyball court option, and skateboard mini-ramp.

For more relaxed enjoyment there are wrap-around patios, family-fruit orchard, built-in firepit with cozy seating, charming Koi pond, and Jacuzzi adjacent to Master Bedroom patio. For entertaining there are two incredible outdoor kitchens, one of which adjoins the interior kitchen with “pass-through” window, and a Twin Eagle Outdoor pizza oven. The second is replete with a Lynx Grill/Rotisserie, refrigerator, sink/prep area as well as a plush exterior living space with TV and Sonos sound bar. The added convenience of artificial, easy keeping Turf graces most exterior spaces, and provides a soft balance to the vast and impactful hardscape surrounding this dream property.

The elevated, luxuriously appointed interiors and thoughtful, flexible floorplan represent the pinnacle of SoCal living and will charm you from the moment you step through the bold front entrance.

“The lifestyle and design here are ideal for a variety of living arrangements and could easily accommodate families of all sizes, empty-nesters with adult children, or even a bachelor/bachelorette looking for an ultimate retreat and home office. The sky is truly the limit.” ~ Garret Milligan

Enormous wood beams and vaulted ceiling offer the perfect juxtaposition to the fine, wide-plank, White Oak
flooring throughout. There are numerous opportunities to showcase art collections, as well as a versatile palette for any number of furnishing styles.

Exceptional master suite on the main level includes a richly-hued, walk-in closet with numerous built-ins, and master bath complete with soaking tub, fireplace and large shower with multiple shower heads. The remaining bedrooms, each with en-suite baths, additional living space and spacious pool-side suite with large closet and bath rest comfortably on the home’s lower level with outdoor access and sunshine filled views from each.

Fit for “Top Chef” status, the superb gourmet kitchen offers top of the line everything including Wolf Range
& Sub-Zero refrigerator, large center island, expansive pantry, and custom leather Quartzite countertops. The spacious three-car garage, Tesla station, and high quality finishes throughout complete this unrivalled
package and present for an incomparable lifestyle, no matter the size or ages of your family. Garret invites you to visit this gem and experience how the gracious living and an extensive exterior playground combine to provide, what he describes as, the ultimate luxury oasis!

“’Build it, and they will come’”, he says, “Surely that line from the movie Field of Dreams must have been spoken with this outstanding property in mind.”
