Property Description

Escape to a private gated peninsula high above the Pacific where exceptional architecture, finest craftsmanship & exquisite materials blend harmoniously to create an estate irreplaceable at this price. 25,000 sq. ft. of French limestone indoors & outdoors, antique European fountains 5+ oceanfront acres.On entering, one drives through massive bronze gates down a long drive of granite cobblestones brought to San Diego from New York in fifteen railroad cars, and originally used as ballast in ships coming from Europe. Lining the drive and the perimeter of the property are walls clad in Santa Barbara Sandstone with bronze detailing, taking 5 artisans 3 years to build. The American flag flies proudly as one approaches the circular drive and porte-cochere. A fragment of an 18th century stone surround ushers the visitor in to the head of the dual staircase which leads to the central courtyard where one is greeted by an 18th century lion head fountain originally from a fort at Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. The courtyard is a perfect location for protected outdoor entertaining with access to three bathroom facilities. From the limestone courtyard, access the side and back of the home, past the tennis court, outdoor fireplace and barbecue, cleverly hidden in the mouth of a large lion head and fashioned after a fireplace in an old French Chateau. Beyond the lap pool and Jacuzzi, a lavish terrace with balustrades of limestone quarried in Utah & a 1920`s Italian fountain transported from an old Pittsburgh estate await. Take a stroll by a rolling green lawn, rose garden, and gazebo from which to sit and enjoy the panorama of the ocean, coastline, and the majesty of this grand estate. There is a separate guest suite, a gymnasium with bath and steam shower, staff quarters consisting of two bedrooms, two baths a sitting room and kitchen, and garage spaces for five vehicles. The main home is entered through massive bronze and glass doors. The 29 by 30-foot foyer, with 31-foot ceilings and two antique carved oak Ionic columns, is graced by a double stairway to the upper level where one finds three bedrooms, four baths and a gallery.
