Perched on the highest crest of Olde Del Mar, this singular home is as rich in its extraordinary details, artisanal appointments, construction and finishes as in its heritage of inspired Spanish Colonial Revival design. The California dream meets the home of your dreams. Often referred to as the jewel of Del Mar, this admired property combines the finest old-world aesthetic with the highest level of modern amenities. On a half-acre lot nestled among Torrey pines overlooking the vast Pacific, hewn timber gates welcome visitors into the 6,100 square foot home’s expansive driveway and car plaza: reclaimed bricks are accented with inlaid ceramics by renowned artist Laird Plumleigh. A winding walkway through native-inspired landscaping by architect Theresa Clark leads to the façade of covered balconies and wrought-iron accents. Inside, the intimate foyer expands into the vaulted formal reception room with its coffered ceiling, stone fireplace and Fortuny chandeliers. The formal dining area takes full advantage of the elevated ocean view with wall-to-wall restored vintage windows. And every detail of the kitchen is a feast of the highest-quality appointments, seamlessly blended with authentic sensibility: Miele, Wolf, Sharp, Fisher & Paykel appliances; leathered soapstone and honed Caesarstone countertops, built-in Spekva walnut cutting board, and hammered Native Trails sinks; all artfully supported by Downsview custom cabinetry. The upstairs master bedroom is the crown of the castle, with barreled tile entryway, reclaimed timber ceilings and custom fireplace. The hamam-inspired master bath -- featuring authentic Tabarka tilework and huge walk-in shower with adjacent soaking tub -- leads to the dual dressing rooms designed with a separate exit for quiet egress. The six bedroom, six bath, two half bath home also includes two climate-controlled wine rooms holding 3,000 bottles…the perfect antecedent for enjoying the outdoor living areas: Tiered balconies, patios and arcades reflect the gold-flecked burnt orange hue of Lincoln tiles; spa and infinity-edge pool with its tanning shelf, mosaic recliners, tiled slide to the plunge pool below; and a complete outdoor entertaining and food preparation area with fireplace and wood-burning pizza oven. All aglow with custom Steven Handelman light fixtures from Santa Barbara. La Casa De Los Sueños…the dreams are in the details.
