Only the terracotta-tiled roofline of a Spanish Colonial estate near the heart of downtown Rancho Santa Fe is visible from the street. Near the end of a rare cul-de-sac, the property is fully fenced and gated. Once inside the gates, the expansive driveway leads to the four-car garage on the northeast side of the residence, past a basketball hoop that foreshadows a home built for relaxation and fun. The light-filled, single-level home is awash in soothing shades of creamy white walls contrasted with cool gray and soft taupe accents. Arched doorways and windows abound. Chocolate-brown, wide, wood plank flooring complements soaring, vaulted wood-beamed ceilings. The entire home is oriented toward the serene outdoor living spaces; truly an oasis.
