Written By: Jeff Cooper Rancho Santa Fe
The entire home is full of light and most living spaces have access to the outdoors, where the gardens and warm Southern California breeze welcome you outside.
With the golf course as your backyard, there’s every reason in the world to tee up! If you’re not a golfer, opt for the social membership to enjoy all of the club’s amenities and social calendar without hitting the green.
Who says you have to travel to Italy to truly experience Tuscany? One exclusive neighborhood in Rancho Santa Fe—The Bridges—is home to 250 estates nestled in the secluded hillside. 6950 Corte Lusso is on a quiet cul de sac and sits along the 7th fairway of The Bridges’ prestigious golf course. The resort lifestyle community is only about 10 minutes from some of Southern California’s beaches, dining and shopping, but in the solitude of the location, the hustle and bustle of the beach cities feels miles away.
Along with ownership of this estate style home, you can buy into a social or full membership at The Bridges Country Club, offering tennis courts, a gym, a spa and other amenities, including the lush green golf course.
This property is a 4, 580 square-foot, four-bedroom home with four-and-a-half baths on about half an acre. It was built in 2003 but was recently completely renovated, allowing for customized elements. The renovations took the home’s Tuscan feel and elevated it with timelessly elegant features. Everything has been refreshed with a discerning eye—even details like the heating vents have been given a modern treatment and feel. High quality and innovative materials are used throughout the home and lend an elevated sense of design. No room was left untouched, even the bathrooms showcase modern wall-mounted toilets and the same custom lighting found throughout the kitchen and living areas.
The entire home is full of light and most living spaces have access to the outdoors, where the gardens and warm Southern California breeze welcome you outside. There are patios adjacent to most rooms of the home where large comfortable sitting areas create a relaxed ambiance for you to enjoy a sunny day or warm evening. For those who love to cook and dine al fresco, the home offers a new outdoor kitchen with a gourmet pizza oven and BBQ. Enjoy it all while taking in a view of the golf course. Enjoy the backyard space complete with fruit trees that thrive in the California sunshine—there is nothing like a fresh grapefruit, orange or lemon to complement your favorite dishes!
The indoor kitchen is replete with carefully chosen details. The high-end appliances will not disappoint even the most discerning chef and the oven is a Bertazzoni from Italy. The kitchen features stunning custom light fixtures, which accent the modern feel of the upgraded space. The silestone counters pair beautifully with the slate flooring in the kitchen, while other rooms of the home feature distressed wood flooring.
The master bedroom opens to the outside and features vaulted ceilings, allowing light to pour in from the gardens. The room hosts a great fireplace, automated shades and a beautiful en suite bathroom with his and hers water closets and a steam shower. There is also a large walk in closet with built-ins for anything the new owner might bring with them. Through French doors, you walk outside to the jacuzzi and patio, which creates the perfect setting for a quiet cup of coffee in the morning or a dreamy soak in the evening.
Like the famous homes in Italy’s countryside, this property creates a beautiful juxtaposition of classic Tuscan design, but with the updates and modern conveniences that homebuyers crave. Taken further than just being an aesthetic, this is a true “smart home” that gives you full control of your pool, HVAC, fireplaces and music, all from your smart device.
The property exemplifies an ideal blend of classic design and modern convenience, while providing the best of California’s famous indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Perfect for a single homeowner, or a family, 6950 Corte Lusso is an amazing place to call home.
