Open House: Classic, Timeless, Refined Westside Covenant Estate

In this issue San Diego Realtor Shannon Hagan takes us room-by-room, from front door to back gate, through this luxury Westside Rancho Santa Fe Covenant home.

Westside Covenant Estate, Rancho Santa Fe California


Quality in anything begets a stylish timelessness in whatever form it is found.  Like a Tiffany’s diamond, Chanel’s “little black dress” or a gorgeous cashmere sweater.  The characteristic of quality draws us all in, makes us linger and allows us to take a deep breath and savor how good it makes us feel.  It is not accomplished through mere volume, cost or type of material.  It is more a characteristic that is garnered by appointment, attention to detail from the artisans who crafted it…and experiencing it makes you feel special.  It is indulgent yet comfortable, classic, timeless, refined, the perfect marriage of allure and staying power.  That is what you will find in this gorgeous West-side Covenant estate…and you’ll agree after walking through the front door and touring the grounds…in all of its quality, you’ll feel that you are finally “home”.

3.15 private and quiet acres, with a masterfully crafted renovation just completed, this timeless, coveted “Westside Covenant” residence is better than new.  Better because the owners spent countless hours assessing how to capture the amenities and appointments of a quality estate while retaining comfortable size and scale.  A total of 4 Bedrooms +Office + Gym + Library and 5.5 baths, no expense was spared in expansion and execution with architectural lighting, audio/visual and environmentally and pocketbook friendly heating/air systems, ventilation, all new windows and doors (Energy-star rated) and state of the art security.  The efficiency alone of the home mechanics and pool equipment saves the new owner thousands per year over other homes of the same scale with older systems.

The remodel was fully executed by an exceptional design and build team including George Mercer, Landscape architect; Lisa Butterbrodt, Interior design; Kerry Rutherford, KR Building and Troy Dunnington owner of San Diego Lightworks. This home is a meeting of art and technology, masterfully crafted and a single touch from a smartphone or tablet controls temperature, sound, security (cameras) and lighting. You will find this home exceptionally appointed for gatherings on a large or small scale, all without a bit of “wasted space”. Enjoy office, library, gym and guest suite on the main floor, master suite plus two additional bedroom suites on the second level.














The grounds are completely private from the view of any neighbors and include a family fruit orchard with a variety of citrus and table grapes all highlighted by captivating lighting and artfully executed hardscape. For the culinary wizard/organic gardener there are lovely masonry raised garden beds.  And with San Diego’s exceptional year round climate you’ll enjoy the outdoors as an extension of your interior living space.  For that reason, this fabulous remodel included an addition of exceptional outdoor audio and multiple “living room” spaces were created like the cozy fireplace retreat near the spa, a gourmet outdoor BBQ with “dining room” under the stars with a lovely pergola, and finally a separate fire-pit area for more casual conversation.  Just a wonderful home…awaiting its next lucky owner.


This home is offered for sale for $3,895,000
