Quintessential Southern California

In the heart of Rancho Santa Fe Covenant, 6977 Las Colinas stands as a testament to early California hacienda-style architecture, skillfully blending the elegance of 1920s Montecito and Santa Barbara estates with the understated lines and proportions reminiscent of California’s historic mission dwellings. Occupying over three acres of some of the most sought-after terrain, this property is a verdant oasis, showcasing an array of native flora including palms, lemon and olive trees, alongside vibrant cacti, lavender, and white roses—a celebration of Southern California's natural splendor. The essence of the region is captured the moment you step inside. The home’s terracotta roof, high ceilings adorned with detailed carved beams, and thick plaster walls framing archways provide glimpses of the surrounding beauty. Features like antique Mexican doors, hand-scraped reclaimed wood, patinated Saltillo tile floors, and iron lanterns enhance its historical charm, while 19 fireplaces and stone terraces adjacent to nearly every room anchor its luxurious appeal without pretense, embodying a home with both an ‘Old Soul’ and a ‘Young Heart’.

The thoughtful restoration led by the current owner—a designer whose work has adorned the pages of national magazines—has reinvigorated 6977 Las Colinas with a blend of timeless elegance and contemporary flair. This blend honors the home's rich heritage while aligning with modern sensibilities, ensuring it remains as relevant and inviting today as when it first graced Veranda magazine in the late '90s. Spanning 10,500 square feet with 26 rooms, the residence offers expansive living spaces including multiple living rooms, a lounge, and a family room, all designed to live both 'large' and 'easy'. The incorporation of intimate spaces like the moss green study and the cashmere-upholstered TV room, which provides a serene escape from the hustle and bustle, underscores the home’s ability to cater to both grand entertaining and private family life.

In merging the architectural grandeur and natural allure of its setting with the functional elegance of a family home, 6977 Las Colinas invites you to experience the quintessential Southern California lifestyle, offering a unique blend of atmosphere, authenticity, and comfort.
