San Diego The distinctive character of this new home overlooking the 13th hole of the world-renowned Rancho Santa Fe golf course is deserving of its “summer house” name. The sprawling estate is clad in crisp white siding and painted white brick. A charming double-hung white gate swings open from the driveway that leads to the fairytale-like arbor arched over the path to the front door. Shaker-style rocking chairs on the porch set the tone for the relaxed, warm interior beyond. Inside, the pale wood flooring and high interior ceilings with massive cross-beam structures inspire a calming, light and airy ambiance. The entire house seems to open to the inviting loggia that overlooks the pool and the emerald green course across the way.
