In Rancho Santa Fe there are many good imitations but few fine, authentic gems like this 1928 Spanish colonial revival designed by architect Hammond Whitsitt for his own home near the village. This rare, 4-bdr, 5.5 ba home ­surrounds a brick courtyard & pool & is situated on a prime, 1.7-acre parcel that from the Jazz Age to the present has caught the afternoon sun and prevailing ocean breezes wafting from its half-acre lemon grove through its elegant entertaining and living areas. In Rancho Santa Fe there are many good imitations but few fine, authentic gems like this 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival designed by architect Hammond Whitsitt for his own home near the village . This rare, 5590 sq. ft., four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home ¬surrounds a large bricked courtyard and swimming pool and is ideally situated on a prime, 1.7-acre parcel that from the Jazz Age to the present has caught the late afternoon sun and prevailing ocean breezes wafting from the half-acre lemon grove to the West through its elegant entertaining and living areas. First time on the market in over 40 years, this original Spanish Colonial Revival sits serenely, only half a mile from the Village, along one of the most desirable streets in the Covenant. Its discreet curb appeal as a small, one-story, red-tile-roofed cottage is belied by the generous four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath residence – pleasing in every proportion and detail – that rises to three stories on the sloping lot. With its handsome hardwood and mission tile floors, exceptional character, and old-world charm, the stately 90-year-old house is a testament to enduring design and quality construction. The centerpiece of the home is the grand living and dining room, just off the main entrance, with its polished oak floorboards and high-raftered ceiling and mantle of massive old-growth timbers. The gracious room is framed on either end by full-length multi-paned windows and opens to a flagstoned porch through three sets of French doors. The living room’s rough-hewn stone fireplace shares a chimney with a second welcoming stone hearth in the center of the elegant mission-tiled sun porch. This delightful walkway or sitting area directly off the main entry has corresponding sets of French doors mirroring those in the living room that open to the East onto the brick courtyard, tiled fountain, and swimming pool beyond. At the far end of the sun porch is a butler’s pantry and light-filled kitchen that has served the home well over the years, but could easily be combined into a larger kitchen area. The master bedroom suite, up two tiled stairs to the right of the entrance hall, occupies its own wing stretching the length of the brick courtyard. Tucked between his and her bath, shower, closets, and dressing areas, is a cozy study with a beehive fireplace and enclosed private patio. A large family room, added in 1976, anchors the rear of the home’s main floor and provides a less-formal living and entertaining option with two comfortable window seats, raised fireplace, and wet bar; a second bedroom and bath just off the breakfast room has its own access to the courtyard – as do the two, third-floor bedrooms and bath via an outside staircase, draped in a glorious cup of gold vine. The three-car garage on the lower level includes a workbench, large, unfinished storage area, cedar closet, and furnace room with adjacent laundry, bath, and spare bedroom or workroom. A studio and darkroom occupy the space beneath the family room. As an added note, the Whitsitt House is an ideal candidate for historic designation – and substantial property tax savings – under the Mills Act.
