MCal’s Thoughts: First of all with a city like ‘Rancho Santa Fe’ you know the home is going to be spectacular! Does it ever impress. This is exactly my idea of a dream home – it’s so beautiful with tons of mature plants and unbelievable exterior entertaining areas. The House itself is designed to a t and is so welcoming but so luxurious as well. I love everything about this place. Another thing I noticed from looking at the pictures is that the owners have two iMacs! W00t – another Mansion that uses Apple :D.
