16221 Via Del Alba, Rancho Santa Fe Covenant


Upon arrival, beyond the private, gated entrance of this magnificent property a dreamlike reverie colors your vision, awakens the senses, and illustrates the authentic experience of Old-World elegance. The seamless blending of unprecedented craftsmanship with the lavish use of artisanal materials, exquisite expanses of space, and an unprecedented level of attention extended to precise planning, is melded together with extensive custom amenities and replete throughout the entirety of this exceptional, three-plus acre, Rancho Santa Fe Covenant estate.  Such sophisticated and gracious attention to the fine art of living well, is rarely achieved as effortlessly or abundantly, as is evident throughout every square inch of 16221 Via Del Alba.

“A legacy of quality is meticulously executed and maintained throughout the flawless 3 acres.” Garret Milligan

Skillful mastery of architectural details, a plethora of imported and authentic materials, and an elevated usage and execution of each, are reflected both within the storied walls of the home’s interior, as they are amongst the flawless grounds. In addition to lush, tropical landscaping, including more than 60 stunningly mature Olive Trees and countless specimen Palms, there are numerous intimate alcoves for reflection and relaxation. One especially unique feature of this tremendous estate is the regulation-sized, Sand Volleyball Court, engineered for precision draining and year-round use. The vast exterior hardscape boasts an extraordinary culinary assemblage of grand design with a custom, handcrafted Pizza Oven, as well as a resort-style, 50-foot circular, custom-designed Pool with waterfalls, beach entry, slide, and sprawling stone patio surround. This property represents the pinnacle of residential perfection and provides an ideal “canvas” for either sophisticated or casual entertaining and illustrates the culmination of a lifestyle dedicated to quality, set amongst an irreplicable and impeccably curated, resort-like oasis.
