    Description

    4 Bedroom Suites in the main house + 2 Master Suites, 5 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, Library, Wine Cellar, 2 Kitchens, 2 Dining Rooms, Game Room, Reading Room, formal Living Room, custom hand milled redwood walls & ceilings in upstairs master bedroom, all wood burning real fireplaces(10), 4 Car Garage, 2 separate gated entrances, totally fenced, approximately 8,200 sqft of living space. Expansive 5.37 acres in Rancho Sante Fe but outside the Covenant while being located in Historical Rancho Santa Fe. This property was built by the Benbough family in the early 1930’s as their Country Home. The Benboughs were one of the founding families who resided in Old Town San Diego. The family took the long drive out to their country home every summer. Mr. Benbough was the Mayor of San Diego at one time. In addition, the family owned furniture stores, grocery stores, meat packing plants, nurseries, etc… The original home was only three bedrooms but the Estate enjoyed 20 all usable acres, a 2 bedroom guest house, a full barn & paddocks. In fact, the family was able to ride their horses from the property straight to the Del Mar beaches. Over the years, the house grew. The family were good friends of Golden Construction who was one of the premier builders of commercial buildings. The family employed Golden Construction to remodel the home all the way up to the 1980’s which included additions to the original home. It seemed that every time the family came back from Europe with major antiques, a new addition was added to accommodate these antiques. This is evident in the game room where the wet bar has glass cupboards from the original post office box piece. Additionally, the fireplace mantle in the downstairs dining room is an antique from Germany – an antique headboard. There are antiques incorporated into the Estate if you just look. The Estate became a week-end playground for the Rich & Famous through the 1970’s when Leglar Benbough, the last Benbough, owned it. It was not at all uncommon for the “Duke” John Wayne, Bing Crosby, Rex Harrison, Betty Davis to name a few to spend the weekend away from Hollywood to relax at the Ranch. The RSF Covenant has invited the subject property into the Covenant so they can have control over this property but the current owner has declined the invitation. The property should qualify for a Historical Designation under The Mills Act. Contact Michael Wayne Williams regarding any additional questions.
