RISMEDIA, July 11, 2008-Prudential California Realty luxury home specialist Susan Bartow has announced the listing of a stunning European-style estate owned by a world-class PGA Tour golfer. The home is nestled on nearly five prime acres in beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, positioned perfectly to take advantage of coastal breezes and breathtaking views. “This Rancho Santa Fe masterpiece is an incredible work of art,” said Susan Bartow, listing agent and Prudential California Realty luxury home specialist. “No detail was overlooked in the design and construction of this home.”
Resting high at the end of a private lane, the property’s nearly five acres frame a marvelous presentation of unmatched craftsmanship, European design elements and a rare attention to detail found only in the finest of homes. Guests are welcomed by a covered walkway to the front entrance, which leads into the main residence. Once inside, the home’s inimitable quality and Tuscan authenticity become clear. Hand-carved Cantera fireplaces, Calcutta marble and Bacarrat crystal on sterling silver fixtures are just a few of the home’s incredible high-class features immediately noticeable upon entry. The property’s magnificent views of the Rancho Santa Fe countryside are enjoyed through Albertini windows that hold leaded glass. The home’s soaring ceilings are paneled and trussed in crafted wood, while the distressed walnut flooring lends itself toward the warm and intimate living space.
The estate, designed in the spirit of a classic European villa, evokes strong artistic influences throughout. The master suite is highlighted by custom mosaics replicated from a Venetian palazzo, while the main residence showcases mosaics and frescoes from some of the world’s finest artisans. A 1,200 square foot detached guest villa is graced with many of the same luxurious appointments as the main residence, and another detached studio enjoys a warm southern exposure, serving as an office or meditation/reading room.
This exquisite estate is being offered by Prudential California Realty for $10,750,000 to $12,225,876. Susan Bartow, listing agent for the property, can be reached at 858.775.9055.
