Home Of The Week

14185 Caminito Vistana

San Diego

This stately Tuscan-style residence on a premier view lot in the highly prized Fairbanks Highlands Estates is the former home of a professional athlete. The perfect residence for the indoor-outdoor California lifestyle, it is exceptionally private, with resort-style features and lovely views of mountains, canyons, rooftops and city lights.

The beautifully landscaped front yard leads to a double-height formal entry with wood and stone parquet floors and a graceful curved staircase. To one side is the living room, with cathedral ceilings, fireplace, built-in library shelves and a wide arched doorway leading to a large wet bar. The formal dining room, accented by a tray ceiling, looks out on the pool and adjoins the entertainer’s kitchen, which features custom wood flooring, a large island with a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and additional dining area. The kitchen in turn opens through wide archways to a spacious family room with a fireplace.

On the upper level, a Juliet balcony overlooks the living room, and the bedrooms include a master suite with a fireplace, sitting area and huge spa-style bathroom with dual sinks, tub and shower. The main house also has a theater, den and office and there is a detached game room/casita complete with sauna and steam room.

On a private lot of approximately .69 acre, the home’s backyard features are designed for spa-style recreation and relaxation. In addition to an outdoor kitchen, lanai, and open and covered areas for dining and seating, there is a six-hole putting green and a saltwater grotto pool with waterfalls, a slide and a large twelve-jet spa. There is also a separate outdoor fireside seating area. The six-car garage is wired for Tesla charging and a solar system is installed. This home is a private retreat loaded with custom touches throughout.
