Home Of The Week
8092 Doug Hill
The crown jewel of Santaluz, San Diego’s premier gated community, this magnificent Tuscan estate is perched above the 13th and 14th fairways of the Rees Jones-designed Santaluz Club, where it commands sweeping views over lake, mountains and golf course, all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy impeccable quality, resort-style luxury and year-round indoor-outdoor living and entertaining in this exquisite residence designed by Scott M. Grunst & Associates.
The home showcases majestic craftsmanship, such as dramatic roof trusses, custom stonework and ironwork, handsome wainscoting and cabinetry, and disappearing glass walls that open to the loggia, infinity-edge pool and nonstop view. Among the estate’s many unique features is a great room with 20- foot exposed-beam ceilings, a 500-bottle wine room, a regulation-size billiard room, a soundproof eight-seat theater and a separate entertainment center with a built-in bar.
The elegant paneled library/office has a fireplace and boxed ceilings, plus French doors opening to a private patio. The open-concept chef’s kitchen, with soaring ceilings and center island, features professional appliances, butler’s pantry and a breakfast nook with views of the lake and golf course. The formal dining room has gorgeous coffered ceilings, twin chandeliers and a fireplace. With a sitting area and French doors to a private veranda overlooking the fairways and lake, the master retreat features a beamed ceiling, stately fireplace, dual walk-in closets and a spa-like bath with jetted tub and oversized steam shower. All bedrooms have Sonos system speakers and separate climate controls. The guest casita is equipped with a breakfast bar, fireplace, and a patio with lake views.
The tranquil grounds include a partially covered patio with a 15-foot fireplace and tiered fountain. The home includes state-of- the-art solar power, tankless hot water and a reverse osmosis system for fresh drinking water. Truly a masterpiece of refined beauty.
