Current Owner: B. Edward Ewing

List Price: $36,500,000

“No event is too large for this grand residence built to impress,” promise listing materials for Casa del Sol, a six-building “master-planned compound hidden among eight botanical-quality acres” at 15651 Puerta Del Sol in the exclusive Covenant section of Rancho Santa Fe.

The property includes a 9000-square-foot main residence as well as a guest home with another 2500 square feet of living space. There’s a third dwelling built as servants’ quarters, a complete “Roman spa,” and “two pavilions housing a fitness center and loggia,” for a total of 16,500 square feet of living space.

The main home has six bedrooms and seven baths, along with a kitchen that opens to a courtyard-view breakfast room, several living/entertaining areas, a 13-seat private movie theater, and a stage for live performances. The master suite features raised ceilings and French doors that lead to a private patio, along with an expanded bath with a sitting area and Jacuzzi tub.

A detached subterranean game room is reached by a “private winding path with Israeli stone walls, candlelit sconces,” and an “entryway paved with flagstone brought from Yorkshire, England.” Once inside, you’ll find a space equipped with a “French Parfeuille brick ceiling” and two-lane bowling alley with computer scoring.

The 2500-square-foot spa building? Yeah, it’s lavish inside.

The 2500-square-foot spa building and steam room features “lavish mosaic tile walls, his-and-hers baths of limestone, marble, and travertine, [a] detailed mosaic ceiling, hand-shaped basket-weave limestone throughout,” and an “Italian stone fountain, statues, [and] columns.”

The outdoor living pavilion is adjacent to the property’s “resort-style pool and spa” and features a cabana area, built-in barbecue, outdoor fire pit, and a “Buddha bar and lounge” with fire and water features, along with an outdoor dining area.

The eight-acre property is fully landscaped with walking trails throughout, mature fruit trees, a “lagoon garden, rainforest water lily pads, koi pond, [and] custom-made stone bridge.” There’s a private tennis court and a large lawn surrounded by rose gardens that can accommodate a garden party for up to 500 guests.

Additional amenities include a ten-car garage, two 1000-foot driveways for additional guest parking, a 1000-square-foot fitness facility with an extra bath and bedroom, and a dog-grooming station.

Tax records show the estate’s owner is B. Edward Ewing, chairman and chief executive of Key Automotive Group, a Michigan-based automotive-parts manufacturer and a former managing director of the Carlyle Group, a massive private equity firm. Records list a Dallas, Texas, mailing address for the property.

Casa del Sol was last sold in 1998, and though no price is listed, the estate is currently valued on tax rolls at just under $2.9 million (local multiple-listing-service data suggests the sale price was $650,000 for a then-unimproved lot). It’s been offered for sale numerous times since, with listings for $36.5 million attracting no offers in 2006 and 2007, listings in 2007 and 2008 expired with a $29.9 million list price. Listings between 2009 and 2013 dropped as low as $22.5 million without attracting a buyer.

The home is currently slated for auction on February 26, advertised with a $10,000 minimum bid, no reserve, and with the original asking price of $36.5 million touted as a potential value.
