Arguably the best value in all of Rancho Santa Fe! A quality custom built home that previously listed for just under $12 Million! The estate, lovingly named “The Chateau,” brings the charm of the French countryside to the Southern Californian highly sought after and ultra exclusive gated community of The Del Mar Country Club. Enjoy unparalleled privacy with this 3+ acre estate at the end of a cul-de-sac. You’ll feel as if you’ve entered the Palace of Versailles as eloquence follows you throughout the property, from the time you enter the grand two-story foyer - framed by dual wrought iron staircases and an elegant chandelier. The foyer flows seamlessly into one of the main living spaces. Bathed in natural light, this living room is one of many points that lead to the paradise that is the backyard. With plenty of well-maintained greenery and a luscious infinity pool and spa – this outdoor area is sure to keep you calm and relaxed for many years to come. The chef’s kitchen will act as the heart of the home as people gather around the massive granite island. Offering amazing custom finishes like cabinetry crafted by Beau Séjours of Beverly Hills, a hand-forged copper farmhouse sink, and stainless steel appliances, this kitchen is culinary perfection. This estate boasts eight bedrooms and ten bathrooms, giving you and all of your guests ample space to maintain comfort and privacy, including a completely detached two-bedroom guest house with a full kitchen. The Owner’s Suite is a marvel all its own with a beautiful imported onyx fireplace acting as a focal point.
