(SOLD For $1,600,000) Impeccable Craftsman Revival Estate — 4228 Bridlewood Road, Fallbrook, CA

We are proud to present this stunning South Fallbrook Estate.

Located at Malabar Ranch, among some of the region’s finest properties, this architectural masterpiece was inspired by the grand estates of a bygone era.  Built in the Craftsman tradition, this home evokes the drama, passion, and quality of another age, but you’ll enjoy every modern luxury. Infused with attention to detail, this property will not disappoint. Almost never lived in and shows “as-new.” Impeccably appointed at 6000+ sq. ft. this 5 bedroom/bath home is offered fully furnished.

You’ll know you’ve arrived when you approach this grand property. Set high on a ridge overlooking the San Luis Rey River Valley and Bonsall horse country below, the home has views near and far. In the distance, you can see Palomar Mountain, sometimes snow-capped, just 22 miles to the east.

As you enter the grand foyer, you’ll immediately be bathed in warm natural light and dramatic shadow – a hallmark of this rich architectural tradition. In almost every way, this period revival home, built by noted San Diego developer Chris Beucler, pays homage to Southern California’s great Craftsman building tradition first made famous by Pasadena-based architects Charles and Henry Green at the turn of the last century. And this home, like Green & Green homes of yesteryear, shows respect for materials and authentic design. So while the construction is impressive, the design flows from the use of high quality materials and builder skill. Each element, whether it’s the hammered copper fireplace surround or custom-made stained glass clerestory windows, is first a functional elements of the design – not just an ornament.

The home makes stunning use of quality furnishings, color and texture. As you tour the property, it’s easy to appreciate the interior designer’s skill and flair.
