Single Family Residence
Welcome to one of Colony Olivenhain’s most stunning settings in a rare opportunity to own a magnificent home on Rancho Encinitas Drive. This home embraces the ambiance of the Olivenhain/Encinitas lifestyle with short walking distance to numerous running and biking trails, close proximity to several top equine facilities, a short driving distance to schools, shopping experiences, and coastal recreation. This property offers a paradise for entertainment and relaxation while on a sweeping and usable 1-acre lot. From the meticulously laid out grounds, you can enjoy the sunset views with cresting hot air balloons that so often cascade the afternoon Encinitas skyline. With well over $500k in upgrades to the home in recent years, this offering has a majestic circular driveway with private dual automatic gates and fully fenced perimeter. Once inside the gates, refresh yourself in the solar-heated, resort-style saltwater pool with waterfall, jumping ledge, waterslide, spa, and Baja shelf. Warm yourself around either the gas fire pit or the wood-burning fireplace. Eat, drink and watch the big game under the massive covered patio with a large granite bar, six-burner grill, and sink. Play a round on the mini par 3 golf hole with a 3-tiered putting green. Enjoy a game of basketball, volleyball, pickle ball or other games on the large enclosed sports court with its own storage shed for all of your gear. Connect with your inner child on the park-quality playground with swings, monkey bars, rock climbing wall, and double-decker Trex treehouse with stunning sunset and neighborhood views built within a massive ficus tree. Grow your favorite produce in the various enclosed and irrigated garden beds and groves and enjoy the colors and textures of the property’s numerous mature trees and dozens of unique plant specimens. For the fiscally savvy buyer, save annually on your utility bills with drought-tolerant landscaping, a solar-heated pool, and a paid-for solar farm with 2 attached Tesla Powerwall batteries. From inside from the property’s magnificent grounds, enjoy a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home of nearly 5000 square feet where natural light and design possibilities abound. In its current layout, the home offers an expansive ground floor with a large great room/family room off the kitchen with a cozy breakfast area and two sets of double doors to the patio area. Rounding out the ground floor is a sizable formal dining and living room, large pantry, powder room, multiple storage closets, laundry room, and a professional office for two with ample built-ins. Above the spacious 3 car garage (with built-in storage and electric car charger) sits a large bonus room with a vaulted ceiling, built-in cabinetry, wet bar with refrigerator, full bathroom with a shower and tub, numerous storage closets, and a large deck with sweeping views of the property. On the other side of the home, go upstairs to 4 bedrooms with built-in storage, linen closet, game nook/sitting area with panoramic neighborhood and sunset views. The second level also has 3 updated bathrooms, including a stunning master bath with a large jetted tub, double shower with steam, separate sinks, large built-in vanity (with its own solar tube for natural lighting), heated flooring, automated blinds, and more. Elaborate updates and personal touches in recent years include: updates to the plumbing & electric systems; the natural gas supply is city connected instead of propane; 2 tankless water heaters, high-end dual paned windows, LED lighting, ceiling fans, indoor and outdoor built-in speakers throughout, ample HVAC for bedrooms, and commercial-grade wifi network. Come see this remarkable property and say “wow” to the outdoor wonderland it contains and the boundless possibilities offered by its sizable and well-laid-out interior footprint.
