Rancho Pacifica’s “work of art” in Rancho Santa Fe

“The finest in craftsmanship, materials and design”

Because if you don’t have onyx insets, why even bother having Jerusalem Gold hand-carved limetone floors?
Because if you don’t have onyx insets, why even bother having Jerusalem Gold hand-carved limetone floors?

Tucked into the private gated community of Rancho Pacifica, just south of the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club and the exclusive neighborhood of Rancho Santa Fe, sits this home at 5131 Rancho Del Mar Trail.

Listing materials retrieved from Realtor.com invite prospective buyers to “explore the unparalleled craftsmanship of this custom estate,” which boasts five bedrooms and eight baths spread across 11,650 square feet of living area.

“This private estate is a work of art, to be appreciated by the most discriminating buyer who expects the finest in craftsmanship, materials and design,” the listing continues. Custom finishes include Argentinian walnut flooring, Parisian chandeliers, Venetian plaster, and Jerusalem Gold hand-carved limestone floors with onyx insets. The windows are Italian imports, and three grand fireplaces are also ornately honed from limestone blocks.

Because if you’re going to entertain, you may as well do it lavishly.

The entry foyer opens to “a graceful curved staircase, grand vaulted ceilings and sparkling Parisian chandeliers overhead.”

The “chef’s dream kitchen” includes Brazilian stone countertops with a large, U-shaped island hosting two auxiliary prep sinks. A back wall is lined with appliances, including multiple ovens and a commercial quality range, from luxury suppliers including Gaggenau, La Cornue, and SubZero.

Two en-suite bedrooms are on the first floor, two more upstairs, though that level is largely consumed by the “master penthouse suite” that occupies 3000 square feet of ocean view living space all on its own. The master bath “rivals any five-diamond spa, with underlit onyx countertops and a one-of-a-kind onyx bathtub,” while the oversized walk-in closet boasts its own center island and chandelier.

Other amenities include a wood-paneled executive office, home theater with 18’ movie screen and silk leather seating, a wine cellar, and game room with space for a pool table and full wet bar. Two “sun drenched verandas” offer opportunities for lounging or entertaining on the upper level.

“Lift and Slide doors completely open the home to the resort-style backyard” that includes a full outdoor kitchen, covered loggia, and a 90-foot pool with slide, multiple water features, a gas firepit, and “a floating spa with three waterfalls that will have guests lavishly entertained all summer long.”

An attached garage provides parking for six cars with room for more behind the entry gate. Full fiber-optic smart home wiring and a complete security camera system round out the list of improvements in the 2011-built estate.

Homeowners’ association fees of $890 per month provide gate-guarded access to the community of just 148 homes “known for its quiet, private walking trails and lush, beautiful landscapes.” According to the Rancho Pacifica HOA, more than half of the community’s 400 acres have been preserved as permanent open space.

According to public records, ownership of the estate currently lies with Hernan Scolari and Maria Morretti. Scolari is a Houston, Texas-based oil trader who purchased the home for a reported $7 million in 2016.

The Rancho Del Mar home was listed publicly for the first time in late October of 2019. Its original asking price of $9,850,000 remains unchanged to date.
