6397 Clubhouse Drive, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

Beds: 7

Baths: 10

Current Owner: James Kidrick

Asking Price: $11,880,000

This week, an “irreplaceable French Chateau offering every amenity you could imagine.”

The 2002-built Rancho Santa Fe estate located at 6397 Clubhouse Drive, within the exclusive Del Mar Country Club, features seven bedrooms and ten baths spread across 13,000 square feet of indoor living area.

“Live the life you’ve always dreamed,” promise listing materials, offering prospective buyers a chance to “wake up and work out in the gym, relax in your 22-seat theater, or hang out in the ‘man cave’ after a long day.”

The theater room has a blue-sky ceiling...so you don’t feel guilty about watching idiot box on a perfect-weather day?
A breathtaking foyer
Release your inner chef
Resort-style lagoon pool with spa, rock waterfall, cave, and slide
Garage with parking for seven cars plus a golf cart

Design features include a forged iron dual staircase in the “breathtaking foyer,” a marble fireplace imported from Italy, and a kitchen that invites you to “release your inner chef” while stepping across 150-year-old French brick farmhouse floors.

A grand staircase leads to the master retreat “with its sitting room, marble fireplace & private balcony, overlooking the beautiful grounds and golf course beyond,” and where “the spa-inspired bathroom boasts a steam shower, spa tub and dream walk-in closet.”

Outside, the residence includes more than three acres of “beautifully landscaped grounds including rose gardens, herb and vegetable gardens, and a cascading fish pond.” There’s also a “resort-style lagoon pool with spa, rock waterfall, cave, and slide,” as well as an outdoor covered living room with television, barbecue, fireplace, and granite-topped bar.

Finally, one can “meander up a stone path to a tranquil imported marble rotunda, overlooking the golf course, where you can enjoy sweeping views & fresh ocean breezes.”

The grounds also include a garage with parking for seven cars plus a golf cart, topped by a two-bedroom guest house.

Public records indicate the current owner of the estate as James Kidrick, a retired Navy pilot who went by the call sign “Slug” and since 2007 has served as president and CEO of the San Diego Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park.

Kidrick came to the museum during a period of turmoil, becoming its third leader in less than two years. His appointment, shortly after joining the organization as a fundraiser, was criticized at the time due to Kidrick’s involvement in several failed ventures, though the museum has regained stature since his arrival.

The property last sold publicly in 2012 for $7,225,000. It was most recently listed in mid-August with an asking price of $11,880,000.

A neighboring property at 6398 Clubhouse was featured here in 2013. Though smaller in living area at just under 9400 square feet, it carried an asking price then of $16,950,000. Nearly two years later its status still reflects an active listing, with no price adjustments to date.
