There’s a certain moment in spring when the weather turns abruptly cold, making you wish we could just fast-forward to the dog days of summer. When that moment hits, I look longingly at real estate photos of homes like this seven-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath mansion north of San Diego in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
At 10,162 square feet, the home deserves the mansion moniker, and to be fair California is packed with sprawling Mediterranean-style homes. This one has six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, multiple living areas, and a gourmet kitchen with a large double fireclay farm-sink and island.
But we just want to hang out at the resort-style pool. A vine-covered trellis protects an outdoor eating area and fireplace, perfect for entertaining or sipping cocktails. The pool itself is set inside large boulders with a hot tub and a natural looking waterslide. Palm trees and budding flowers abound.
Looking for some pool time? 6670 Calle Pequena is on the market now for $3,650,000.
