Rancho Santa Fe villa description

This beautiful 7000 square feet custom built villa, just 20 minutes north of San Diego, is perfect for groups large and small. It has panoramic views of Lake Hodges and the surrounding mountains as well as easy access to every tourist attraction available.

Imagine relaxing on one of the outdoor patios or on the gazebo with a drink while watching the incredible sunsets over the lake. Or if you are an early riser, sit in the gazebo and watch the sunrise peak over the moutains with a hot cup of coffee. It is truly spectacular.

Should you want to venture from the house - many people never leave - there are tourist attractions to suit every taste as well as hundreds of restaurants and bars within easy reach.


This is truly a spectacular spot for young and old. If you would like more photos, please just let us know and we can send you a full package. Or pick up the phone and call us, we would be happy to tell you about the area and recommend places to fit your taste.

We have some great amenities within the villa, including wireless internet, built-in Ipod docking stations, a home theater with state of the art surround sound and hundreds of DVD's to watch, 8 TV's., free long distance phone service, a library of CD's, a library of books, goose down comforters, high thread count linens and Egyptian cotton towels, spa quality soaps, shampoos and lotions, a welcome basket, a herb garden, vegetable garden and fruit tree/avocado grove. There is very little we don't have!

Photo Shoots and Film Crews are welcome.

Sorry but no weddings or events.

                                      Car: Necessary

                                      The Villa is perched on a hill with a spectacular view of Lake Hodges and the surrounding countryside. The susrises and sunsets are spectacular.

                                      The heart of Rancho Santa Fe is only 10 minutes away and the freeway is also 10 minutes in the opposite direction.

                                      The beach is a 20 minute drive and you can be in the heart of the Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego in less than 30 minutes.

                                      The Wild Animal Park is very close and the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Legoland and Sea World are all less than 30 minutes away.

                                      Disneyland, Knotts Beryy Farm, Universal Studios and Six Flags can all be reached in 1-2.5 hours. This is the ideal location for anyone and everyone.

                                      There are several golf courses to choose from and miles of mountain biking and hiking right outside the front door.

                                      You will love it.

                                      You can also go horseriding.

                                       

                                      Owner info

                                      Year Purchased: 2008

                                      About the owner: Clive and Katy were travelling around the world when they ran out of money in San Diego and stayed! That was 28 years ago. They have 4 children and travel extensively, often renting homes from others. Clive owns his own surveying business and Katy is a CFO for start up companies. They have 4 children, 2 of whom are now in University and the other 2 are wroking in San Diego. They love entertaining and this is reflected in their home, which they designed and built themselves. They hope you enjoy it.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Rancho Santa Fe:
                                      The most fabulous view we had ever seen.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                      Staring at the fabulous view never gets old and having access to over 40 miles of hiking, nature, mountain biking and walking just outside our door is wonderful. A short drive to the beach and all the attractions - Sea World, Legoland, Disneyland, Universal, The Wild Animal Park, The Zoo - as well as so many restaurants and bars, makes this a very unique place. And it is only 30 minutes to the airport.
