When San Diego phi­lan­thropists Bill and Kathy Scripps de­cided to build their fam­ily home, it was no ques­tion where they would raise their chil­dren. Rancho Santa Fe was an easy choice! In ad­di­tion to great schools, the town of­fers plenty of pri­vacy, while still be­ing ad­van­ta­geously lo­cated near beaches and the city.

Nes­tled on a syl­van hill­side, the Scripps Eques­trian Estate un­veils its beauty in lay­ers, re­veal­ing qual­ity and con­ve­nience at ev­ery turn. The 12,417 SF home was cus­tom de­signed for the iconic fam­ily and has since been freshly mod­ern­ized to high­light the ex­tra­or­di­nary ar­chi­tec­ture and seam­less in­door/out­door liv­ing.

The heart of the estate, the main home with seven bed­rooms and ten baths, has been up­graded with state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy. The home fea­tures sur­round sound, ra­di­ant heated floors, Cre­stron Home Au­to­ma­tion and a Lutron Home Light­ing sys­tem. En­com­pass­ing a cen­tral court­yard for res­i­dents to en­joy the lush land­scape around a cozy fire pit, the spa­cious floor plan sep­a­rates fam­ily, guest and staff bed­rooms into pri­vate wings. The sump­tu­ous master re­treat boasts an ex­tra of­fice, ex­er­cise room, and bath with dual clos­ets and van­i­ties, while rest­ing in per­fect prox­im­ity to the chil­drens’ rooms. The homes’ time­less de­sign ra­di­ates el­e­gance through­out with arched tresses and pinewood floors.

The pri­vate and pres­ti­gious 12-acre estate blends as­pects of a trop­i­cal re­sort with the tran­quil­ity of ranch liv­ing. The grand game room, which ac­com­pa­nies a full bar and wine cel­lar on the first floor, opens to an in­fin­i­tyedge pool with en­ter­tain­ment pa­tio and ca­bana re­plete with bar, sauna and kitchen. Eques­tri­ans will marvel at the beau­ti­ful barn equipped with six in­door-out­door stalls, a tack room, and a spec­tac­u­lar rider’s lounge and sa­loon open­ing to a pa­tio with bar­be­cue and fire­place. A tennis court and sand vol­ley­ball court com­plete the estate.

Now, with their kids grown, the Scripps hope an­other fam­ily can en­joy the beauty and tran­quil­ity of this magnificent estate and make their own mem­o­ries.
