Rancho Sante Fe Estate Listed at Record $92 Million

A Rancho Santa Fe estate is currently listed at $92 million and, if sold at the asking price, would be the most expensive property sold in San Diego County, real estate agents say.

Del Dios Ranch includes an 8,148-square-foot main residence, with a 3,936-square-foot adjoining pavilion dedicated to a pool and spa.

The ranch also boasts a separate guest house, six-stall barn, office and maintenance building and garage and workshop.

Of the expansive property, the listing agent, Willis Allen Real Estate, writes: "The property comprises some 210 acres, a large portion of which is available for development. The residence itself is a magnificent redwood, glass, and marble structure, with foundations and framework of poured-in-place concrete commanding 360-degree views from its private hilltop location.”

A lake, tennis court and equestrian facilities also sit on the property.

You can’t find the property publicly listed, as only very serious buyers are encouraged to contact the agency, said agent Linda Sansone of Willis Allen Real Estate.

Sansone told The Wall Street Journal that the current record for the priciest home sale in San Diego County is the 2007 purchase of a $35 million beachfront Del Mar home.

Del Dios Ranch was built in 1972 and was the longtime home of Roland Sahm, founder of Elixir Industries. Sahm and his wife have both since died, the Wall Street Journal reports, and their son is selling the estate.
