Old world meets contemporary at Rancho Del Lago

“Fireplaces with imported 18th century European mantles and custom fire boxes adorn the home.”

“Through the 24-hour security guarded gates of Rancho Del Lago, you approach this magnificent European style estate,” begins the realtor.com listing pitch for 6590 Calle Reina, a 1995-built Rancho Santa Fe estate that spans “approximately 15,000 estimated square feet on four manicured usable acres.”

The main house includes five bedrooms and seven baths, including an entry-level owner’s suite with “his and hers walk-in closets featuring center islands and a separate exercise room with its own laundry.” In the main bedroom and throughout the house, “five specially designed fireplaces with imported 18th century European mantles and custom fire boxes adorn the home.”

In addition to the requisite built-in appliances (including double ovens, double microwaves, trash compactor, and warming drawer), the kitchen features “a grand center island of limestone and handcrafted French polished kitchen cabinetry, while a room-size skylight over the kitchen provides natural light and ambience.”

An adjacent formal dining room is highlighted by a crystal chandelier that reportedly dates back to the 1700s. “Everything throughout the home has been customized, including the hardwood flooring in all of the bedrooms, living room, dining room and library, each with its own unique design & hardware,” the listing continues. “The architecture, design and construction became a four-year passion project, culminating in this exquisite property inspired by authentic European style.”

Outside, the estate features a “custom wrought iron fence enclosure” with entry gate tied into the security system. The grounds also include a lighted tennis court and pavilion, along with multiple water features including not only a pool and spa but also two large koi ponds, a stocked fishing lake, and “numerous water fountains, including a large dancing circular fountain gracing the entrance.”

Continuing through the property, prospective buyers will encounter an orange grove, a “ground mounted solar system tucked out of sight,” a garage with eight bays and room for boat parking, and a “fully appointed detached guest house” overlooking the pool and waterfall. There’s even a children’s playhouse with its own “crystal chandelier, copper gutters and slate roof that mirrors the main house and stands in the side yard adjacent to its own vegetable garden.”

“Whether your taste is old world or more contemporary, the structure of this regal home is adaptable; it can remain in its current splendor or be modified for a more modern aesthetic,” the listing concludes.

Public records indicate ownership of the Calle Reina estate lies with Dr. Sidney Levine, a La Jolla-based orthopedic surgeon, and wife Judith. The family has owned the property since at least 1998, and it carries a current tax assessment of $4.7 million.

The property has been listed for sale a few times in recent years — listings in 2013 and 2014 for $15.5 million did not attract a buyer, nor did an offering at $15 million in 2019. After several months off market, the home became available again in late October, this time with an asking price of $14,750,000 that remains unchanged to date.
