This breathtaking residence deemed BellaVino, is an experience like no other and an entertainer’s dream come true. Set on an approximate 3.56 acres, this luxurious estate offers panoramic hilltop views, access to a riding and hiking trail, Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course, the Inn and Village.
Taking inspiration from the grand villas of the Italian countryside, 5570 San Elijo charms with its four bedrooms, five and one-half baths, nearly 8,304 square feet of luxury living space and a four-car garage. The hilltop estate invites indoor spaces to graciously open up to the many outdoor areas and lush vineyards.
Once you walk through the vintage entry doors, you will be in awe of the antique Douglas fir wood plank and French limestone flooring. The gourmet kitchen offers cabinetry by Clive Christians of London, marble countertops, a chef’s station, wine room, and butler’s pantry. In the main house, you will find fully equipped billiards, poker, game and recreation rooms with seven TVs, a den and formal dining room – as well as living and family rooms and an office, all with fireplaces.
The master suite, with doors to the backyard, features a breakfast bar and separate bathrooms with Perrin Rowe nickel fixtures and walk-in closets.
The grounds offer a classic natural-shaped pool and spa, a wine and spirits pavilion, rooftop pizza terrazzo, kitchen, and bar.
In the vineyard meadow at the entry terrace, there is an outdoor kitchen area. Beyond a private gate, a winding drive opens onto more rolling land and the second vineyard, with the third working vineyard set at the top of the drive.
The estate also boasts a 1,152-square-foot detached guesthouse with two bedrooms, a great room, kitchen, and balcony.
Priced at $10,995,000, Janet Lawless Christ, of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Encinitas/La Costa office, holds the listing.
