Experience 6883 Alydar Corte, a luxurious single-level home in the private gated community of Del Rayo Estates in Rancho Santa Fe. This artisan-crafted neoclassical masterpiece boasts 6 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and 12,756 square feet of sophisticated custom-designed living space auspiciously perched on a 2.69-acre private hilltop oasis providing the most magnificent views in all of Rancho Santa Fe. Breath-taking panoramic views of stunning vistas framing the Pacific Ocean just beyond the private 120,000-gallon saltwater pool invite you to enjoy these outdoor living and entertaining spaces throughout the many days when the local hot air balloons take off decorating the sky until the evenings fade into beautiful purple and indigo sunsets on the horizon.
When entering this museum-inspired home you are immersed in beauty upon every surface from its soaring ceilings and tall picture windows to each textured paneled wall and down to its magnificent custom flooring throughout.
This home masterfully blends art, architectural design, and worldly luxury into a welcoming and fascinatingly "family-friendly" retreat still suitable to host the most debonair dignitaries. The reception foyer greets you with Austrian crystal chandelier-lit hallways opening to the spacious grandeur of the fireplace-warmed sunken living room and adjoining fashionable formal dining room.
These decorative corridors flow into adjacent subtly nuanced service areas before opening into the ballroom-sized entertainment room that leads outside to the sprawling and lavishly landscaped lawn and lush grounds. Combined with the fountained pool area decorated with classical sculptures these spaces create the perfect setting to host spectacular philanthropic events, private weddings, and group galas for friends and VIPs alike.
This home is not bashful about the passionate attention to detail its architects and designers instilled throughout it. From the colorful stained glass mosaic dome to the hand-painted murals, from the groin-vaulted ceiling down to the corbels that accent their base, and from the intricate carvings in the many hand-carved coffered ceilings to the laser-cut slab marble along the sconce lighted hallways connecting the separate living and retreat wings; their craftsmanship is evident in every inch of its intricate design and impeccable construction. The fabulous flowing floor-plan flatters its fanciful formal facades to create a casual elegance conveying connective warmth, timeless grace, and functional forethought.
As expected in luxury this single-story property features smart home technology and security systems, but it also boasts fun and intimacy with its glamorous movie-styled red velvet-curtained 12-plushly seated stage and theater room, and a subterranean grotto wine cellar - accessed only from a hidden doorway behind the bar - in the entertainment and billiard room.
The gourmet kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, hand-painted murals, and a large central island, is a chef's command center perfect for preparing feasts. Still, it is simple enough for making daily laissez-faire meals to be enjoyed in the adjoining bright and sunny breakfast nook and yet private enough to sneak in late-night snacks.
The grandeur of the master suite in the retreat wing is a standout feature of this home. The palatial suite of rooms behind its custom double-door entry greets its owners as royalty. Complete with its sitting room warmed by an ornamental fireplace that separates the large custom walk-in closets and dressing spaces from the ensuite master bathroom with a spa-like soaking tub, a separate steam shower, a dry sauna, and dual vanities. The suite also has a beautiful sunroom lit by reflected morning sunlight that overlooks the grounds, pool deck, gardens, vistas, and ocean.
Other bedrooms range from a grouping of 3 secondary bedrooms off of the master suite, to a smaller second master bedroom, and a separate "au pair quarters”, each has an ensuite bathroom and is decorated with custom murals, wall coverings, curtains, and closets. A library/office retreat near the master bedroom features dark wood-paneled walls, a coffered ceiling, built-in shelving, a fireplace, a private bathroom, and a hidden multipurpose closet.
Outside, high plastered walls and wrought iron fences insulate this private paradise within. The decorative double steel security gates open to a circular motor court bordered by assorted mature palm trees and a lighted full-sized tennis court with a basketball area to the right. Additional carport parking to the left accesses 4 attached garages and a secondary domestics' entrance and laundry room, while mirrored across the driveway are 4 detached garages with a gym/yoga/gaming room and padded playground court centered in a giant fenced-in sandbox.
Just a short 10-minute drive to the Pacific, this estate is surrounded by one of the most prestigious and historic communities in Southern California. Amongst the many lifestyle considerations are The Bridges Golf Course, The Farms Golf Club, Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club, Rancho Santa Fe Equestrian Center, and The Rancho Santa Fe Polo Club. Additionally, the adjacent San Diego County Coastline Communities provide an inherent wealth of healthy adventures and vibrant lifestyle options ranging from a large assortment of epicurean dining options to world-class shopping areas that will provide more enjoyment once explored.
Whether you plan to call this estate your permanent residence or your vacation retreat, you'll always feel like you're on holiday celebrating your success while creating a wonderful legacy of memories here with family and friends in this timeless estate. 6883 Alydar Corte is a true gem! It is a trophy property by all standards and is the perfect home for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
