Fallbrook mansion resembles a quaint European chapel

Including “car barns” with parking for a full fleet of vehicles

A European masterpiece, right here in San Diego County.
A European masterpiece, right here in San Diego County.

The luxury estate at 5147 Morro Hills Place, spanning nearly ten acres in southern Fallbrook, might be better described as a compound than as a residence.

“Welcome to your future ranch, resort, spa, or estate,” invite listing materials. “This European masterpiece is an architectural dream!”

Originally constructed in 1991, the main house, along with four guest homes, a pool house, and living areas above garages occupies a reported 15,375 square feet of living area containing 16 bedrooms and 17 baths. That doesn’t include a 2400-square-foot barn, RV garage, or “car barns” with parking for a full fleet of vehicles.

The kitchen’s ornately detailed exposed-beam ceiling.

The development, continues the listing, would be “perfect for a very special family, or scalable to be the best wedding venue in all of San Diego, a high end spa and wellness center, church or corporate retreat, or a high end celebrity-caliber rehabilitation ranch.”

The entrance to the “three-story masterpiece” main residence “is serene, with a flowing stream over a bridge and a large circular driveway.” Inside, the home features “imported plank flooring, solid wood doors, tiles, marble, fixtures and finish details everywhere your eye takes you.”

The first floor is home to formal living and dining rooms, two offices, an “enormous” master suite that itself occupies more than 500 square feet of living space, and an extra en-suite guest room. The “large scale gourmet kitchen” has an oversized center island with farmhouse sink and multiple commercial-grade cooktops and wall ovens, along with custom stone floors and an ornately-detailed exposed beam ceiling. There’s also the “incredible” family room with a “fireplace so large you could actually stand in it,” one of seven total found in the home, “incredible beam work that resembles a quaint European chapel,” a wine room, and multiple sunrooms. Four more bedrooms and an “art room” are on the upper levels, with the top floor occupied entirely by a second master suite “big enough for a family or bridal party with a large beautiful bathroom with claw foot tub.”

The main home has a direct-access two-car garage, but another garage, offering room for four cars along with extra workshop space, is just across the driveway.

“Keeping with the European feel of the estate, the first of the four guest houses is a 1200-square-foot, two-bedroom two-bath remodeled home with one-car attached garage,” the listing continues. Another guest house, spanning 1000 square feet and sitting atop a nine-car garage overlooking the lighted tennis court and private lake, adds another bedroom and bath.

A third, newly-constructed guest house adds another pair of bedrooms and more than 2000 square feet of living space with “sweeping pastoral and mountain views,” while a small two-bedroom house near the two eight-stall barns rounds out the accommodations.

Because horses appreciate luxury, too.

Finally, the newly-designed “incredible” pool house features a rec room, commercial kitchen, and pizza oven adjacent to the resort-style pool and spa.

In addition to the barns, equestrian facilities include “a beautiful oval riding ring and a nice area just below the barn (approx. 2400 sq. ft) for full Grand Prix Field and plenty of covered parking for all equipment and supplies with beautiful tack & bathroom.” Two private wells provide water to maintain the property’s landscaping.

Public records indicate ownership lies with a Phoenix, Arizona-based holding company fronted by John Kenyon, owner of an Arizona plastering company. His firm acquired title for a nominal fee in November from Steven Sharratt, who operates a boutique construction firm in Encinitas.

The Morro Hills property was first listed for sale in mid-April with an asking price of $8.4 million. A month later, the seller indicated that they would begin entertaining bids between $6.9 and $8.4 million.

  • 5147 Morro Hills Place | Fallbrook, 92028
  • Beds: 16 | Baths: 17 | Current Owner: JWK Holdings | List Price: $6,900,000-8,400,000
