Arista at the Crosby – Plan Two

 

I believe you can sense when a house is special. You feel it in your heart. Your heart tells you that this HOME will become a part of your family. ~ Bill Davidson

Rancho Santa Fe

Plan One

Nestled into the scenic hills of Rancho Santa Fe sits an enclave of resort style homes called Arista at the Crosby. This week we will spotlight the second floor plan of these beautifully designed homes. Crosby is named for legendary performer and one-time owner of this prime parcel, Bing Crosby. He hosted clambakes at the pestigious Country Club.

When I drove up to the gate, a guard greeted me. The planners of Fairbanks Ranch, Davidson Builders, got the street layout pitch perfect and the community overlooks the first tee of the Crosby Gold Course.

You walk through a brick archway, through a custom door to a foyer with an adjoining office. Straight ahead is the living room with  vaulted ceiling and a classically styled hearth. The trim and moldings in this model reflect the old world finishings in Spain. There are plenty of windows to let in lots of light.

The kitchen boasts a fourteen-foot slab of Carrere marble that serves as both island and breakfast bar.

Moving in a circle from the greatroom through the kitchen is the dining room. The thing I love about the finishes in these homes is that luxury is not synonymous with formality. The dining room is elegant and you can go formal or casual and still have it look amazing.  All you have to do is switch out the chairs and you have casual elegance.

The Master Suite embodies the same elegance and timeless quality with crown moldings and enormous, light filled windows. The carpet is thick and plush underfoot. The bathroom looks like someone flew it in from a spa hotel in London. This place must be seen.
