A new Compass listing in South Encinitas, priced at $6,290,000:
Tucked away in seclusion, this 3606 sq. ft. 3-bedroom 3 bath New Construction Modern Hacienda masterpiece with two additional detached units exemplifies a unique combination of an ultra-modern interior and the warmth of a welcoming hacienda exterior. Nestled in the depths of Berryman Canyon, with the inviting Enclave development serving as the veritable drawbridge to the estate, this home exists as a fortress of relaxation. Upon arrival, all guests are unequivocally certain that this estate is the crown jewel of the neighborhood.
As you enter the grounds a masterfully planted landscape encircles the driveway with mature palm trees, cycads and a Chinese Elm, each standing guard along the mandala- shaped driveway. An inviting Mediterranean veranda shades the main entryway and outdoor patio where each span is supported by artfully cut stone colonnades. Unlike the predictable facades of veneer these stone pillars have been built by hand to endure the test of time. Upon entrance to this Modern Hacienda the breathtaking vaulted barrel ceiling calls the viewers eyes towards the heavens of an unbelievably elegant and ultramodern interior giving precedence to the tastefully encompassing open concept, seamless floor plan. The welcoming entry opens into a spacious kitchen and living room fit for a fireside dinner for two or an elegant cocktail party with all your favorite artists. Beyond the generous lounge and sizable powder room, a grand hallway leads to the understated elegance of the master bedroom’s open floorplan where one is struck by the sophisticated layout of a glass encased shower, marble bathtub, and vanity that stretches from ceiling to floor. A low bed lies on the opposite side of this expanse, directly facing a contemporary sculpted natural stone fireplace. This main feature is bordered by a walk-in closet, reading nook and a sleek private entrance framed by black steel French doors. Upon sunrise, the bedroom is bathed in golden light, softly reflected upwards by the slate tile, engulfing the entire room in a soft glow. An inviting family room with an open office space adjoins two spacious guest bedrooms and a stunning Jack- and-Jill style bathroom, perfect for children or short-term guests.
Situated on both sides of the main home lie two detached units; to the north lies an 848 sq. ft. Entertainment-Game room, complete with full wet-bar and copious space for a pool table or piano and lounging area. Completing this space is an adjacent spacious walk-in steam-sauna and shower.
A fire pit and grill are strategically placed in the oversized courtyard between the main home and the recreation room, perfect for hosting outdoor parties or enjoying a simple evening dine al fresco. To the south of the main home lies a charming, 488 sq. ft. private Granny flat / Accessory Dwelling Unit complete with 1 bedroom, kitchen, full bathroom and a relaxing secluded patio overlooking the succulent garden and fountain, perfect for guests, relatives, or a live-in maid. This property affords endless possibilities for customized features. With enough space for a pool in the courtyard, a private garden on the slopes above the house, a gazebo to watch the sunrise, the options for expansion and creativity abound. A dip in the ocean, a hike amongst canyon trails the Kumeyaay once traveled, or a calming walk alongside the lagoon is only minutes away. Located in the Cardiff San Dieguito school districts, this house is a part of one of the top public and private school districts in the nation. Sharing borders with Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, and Solana beach, this home is indisputably within the heart of San Diego’s revered North County. With an external spirit of San Diego’s history, and a homage to the elegant modernity we embrace today, this home is more than a palace in which to live and enjoy. It is a promise to carry forward a family legacy for years to come.
