Current Owner: John Isaac

Listing Price: $15,800,000

Beds: 8

Baths: 10

The “Grand Chateau at Rancho Santa Fe” is a 20,000-square-foot estate in a well-known enclave for the ultra-wealthy, home to many of San Diego’s elite. The property was styled by Warren Sheets Design, Inc., a firm that bills itself as “one of the country’s leading full-service interior design and architectural interiors firms,” and responsible for local hotelier-turned-media-mogul “Papa” Douglas Manchester’s Grand Del Mar hotel, which listing materials say inspired the design of this entertainer’s paradise.

Built in 2001, the residence underwent “multi-million dollar renovations” in 2013, “using only the finest materials with amazing attention to detail,” which include imported marble, stone, and granite. Custom imported fabrics are also prominent in the interior design, including the formal living room’s curtains and tapestries.

In addition to elegant wall coverings, most rooms feature unique inlaid ceiling designs and many have ornately decorated lighting fixtures.

The home has the standard (at this price level) gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry and countertops as well as professional-quality appliances, but it also features a second commercial kitchen with its own entrance to allow for onsite catering to large parties.

The master bedroom alone boasts over 1200 square feet of living area with a fireplace, bath area “fit for royalty,” and an “incredible Rodeo Drive–Beverly Hills style boutique master closet” with a custom chest of drawers in the center flanked by rows of closets with glass-inlaid doors and a full wall of shoe racks.

The owner of this estate would not lack for entertainment options. The private multitiered movie theater has its own classically themed lobby. The dance studio features floor-to-ceiling mirrors and herringbone-laid wood floors. There’s a full private gym as well as a massage room and steam room. A rustic-themed wine room offers an alternative dining venue to the formal dining room, breakfast nook, or bar seating in the kitchen. Brunswick installed a one-lane bowling alley with computerized controls. The estate even boasts its own discotheque with a fully stocked bar, dance floor, plush perimeter seating, and DJ booth.

Waterfalls cascade into the “resort-style” pool.

Outside, the property’s two-acre lot offers even more entertainment. Waterfalls cascade into the “resort style” pool surrounded by tropical landscaping and multitiered outdoor lounge areas. Crowd of mannequins. There’s also a private regulation-size tennis court on the grounds, professionally maintained rose garden, and children’s playground area.

The home boasts a six-car garage with room on the brick drive to park another ten or more.

The 3000-square-foot detached guest house has its own garage.

Tax records show the current property owner to be John A. Isaac, though the property was previously owned by George Haligowski, who headed the now-defunct Imperial Capital Bank in La Jolla. Federal banking authorities shuttered the operation in 2009 after it posted over $100 million in losses over a nine-month period. By 2011, the property had fallen into foreclosure, with public records showing a total of over $4.2 million owed on a $3,987,500 loan issued in 2005.

The property was listed last year, but a price range of $16,900,000 to $18,400,000 failed to attract a buyer. After several months off market, the Grand Chateau was re-listed in February with a new agent and an asking price of $15,800,000, which remains unchanged.
