RANCHO DEL CIELOS…this mountain top property was the creation of a Chilean architect who was selected because of his vision that architecture was not a shield, but rather a transition to nature. This five acre mountaintop retreat incorporates boulders and beauty with some of the rock exposed in some of the walls in the house and the spa area. Artisan standards were considered throughout with old growth hickory flooring, handmade high grown pine doors, beams, and a remodeled kitchen using Sub Zero, Dacor and Meile appliances, hickory cabinets, stainless steel counter tops and custom copper bar and island tops. There are seven integrated patios and four balconies providing a zen like atmosphere of privacy and serenity. The views will take your breath away that extend for miles. A six foot wall runs approximately 150′ across the west side and the private street and access to the residence is controlled by two gates. The landscape includes a family fruit orchard, vegetable gardens, and hundreds of decorative cycads and cactus from South America and Africa. The main exterior and private retreat areas are paved with natural exotic Brazilian stone. Sky Mesa development is a gated community located between Los Angeles and San Diego and consists of 5 to 10 acre parcels. There is an adjacent five acres 23648 Tapatia Rd available that has beautiful landscape for $245,000.
