People who live in glass houses should probably do so in a place like Rancho Santa Fe.
Behold the home billed as “Solace in the Sky,” a newly constructed 8969-square-foot ultramodern glass cube at 15815 Las Planideras.
“No expense was spared in this six-bedroom modern construction in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant,” boast listing remarks retrieved from Redfin.com. “Living across one level, luxury exudes from every corner of this home, featuring chic contemporary styling with Italian influence throughout.”
Huge squares of glass and stone dominate the space, from the glass-walled entry with staggered concrete slabs leading to the pivoting front door, clear through to the massive pocketed glass back wall that retracts to expose the zero-edge radius pool in the yard and panoramic eastward mountain views beyond.
A Milaense boutique? No, just your closet.
The kitchen, “complete with Miele appliances and a Sub-Zero fridge/freezer,” features not one but two massive center islands, each topped with thick, squared-off marble slabs that tumble down the counter sides to the floor. A sink peeking out from behind the third counter against the back wall suggests the presence of a “messy kitchen,” a nod to the recent trend of wealthy entertainers so enamored with the spotless presentation of their gourmet chef’s paradise that the real work of preparing and cooking food occurs in a much more pedestrian facility hidden from view.
Adjacent to the kitchen, a formal dining room “floats” over the water features lining the entryway and features a “beyond chic seamless glass temperature controlled wine storage” wall.
The great room, meanwhile, “is designed to impress, featuring 14’ ceilings with intricate wood detailing and a custom one-of-a-kind fireplace with Floating Fire Tray” that is both “the first of its kind” and also “the largest in all of San Diego.”
Moving on to the owner’s suite, “exquisite details abound, from an automated pocket door, LED-lit ceiling, and a slab-covered fireplace.” The bathroom features Fantini luxury fixtures, smooth stone slabs for walls, automated window shades, and a freestanding cubic tub tucked into a corner of floor-to-ceiling windows. “The custom couture Italian-made closet is no exception” to the home’s luxury, “being designed after fashion boutiques in Milan using custom Italian cabinetry and several glass LED display cases” with velvet-lined drawers to make getting dressed in the morning feel like you’re visiting a high-end clothing store wearing only a towel.
Other “unique design elements” and features include “a game room with cornering glass to provide views,” an office that continues the home’s solid glass exterior wall trend, and a powder room “flooded with natural light through a skylight 12 feet above, complemented by a custom black slab sink.” There’s also a private gym, full smart home automation technology, and a 1000-square-foot guest house with full kitchen and its own laundry facilities.
“THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE to enjoy a life of luxury than this,” the listing concludes.
Public records indicate the Las Planideras property last sold for $2.3 million in 2018, when it was home to a 2800-square-foot ranch style home built in 1957. The buyer was Anthony Dubreville, a construction tech executive who transferred the property to a limited liability company for the purpose of rebuilding.
With construction complete, the new Rancho Santa Fe estate was re-listed in early November for $12,995,000, a price that remains unchanged to date.
