Private, spacious, and exceptionally comfortable, this elegantly renovated mid-century ranch estate commands sensational ocean and island views. Set at the top of a gated drive situated on a bluff between Paradise Cove and Escondido Beach, the idyllic 3-plus acre property has resort-style amenities: guest house, pool, equestrian facilities, beautiful landscaping, and expansive patios and lawns for congenial entertaining.
Built on a single level, with huge windows throughout, the home is airy and open, with gorgeous wood plank and beam ceilings, cement and wood floors, tasteful new décor by Barry Fox, and views, views, views. Perfect for indoor-outdoor gatherings of all sizes, the living, dining, and sitting rooms wrap around a central fireplace and include a piano, a wall of library shelving, and a large flatscreen, plus wide glass doors opening onto the pool and patios on one side and verdant lawn, trees, and a backdrop of rolling hills on the other.
Also facing onto the patio, pool, and ocean, is the exceedingly comfortable kitchen/family room. The kitchen has top quality appliances, a butler’s pantry, stone countertops, and breakfast bar seating, plus a dining area inside as well as a pergola-shaded poolside dining area on the patio just outside. The family room is bright and inviting, with two walls of glass.
The main home’s three bedrooms include the serene ocean-view primary suite, which has lots of closet space, floor-to-ceiling glass on two sides complete with sliding doors to patios and gardens, as well as a large, luxurious ocean-view bathroom.
Separated from the main house, the one-bedroom, one-bath ocean-view guest house has a kitchen/living/dining area, air conditioning, sliding glass doors opening to a wide lawn, plus its own carport. Parking for the main house includes four garage spaces, one currently used as a gym, plus plenty of guest parking along the entry drive.
Surrounding the pool, Jacuzzi, and terraced planters, multiple patios enjoy ocean views and offer ample space for al fresco dining, barbecues, and lounging under the stars. Equestrian facilities include a stable and riding area. Perfectly situated for access to beaches, dining, and hiking trails, this mid-century ranch home is a year-round getaway loaded with comfort and style.
