Unveiling a unique and open-concept experience in Encinitas Ranch, this stunning, turnkey, whole-home renovation integrates a soulful gourmet kitchen and spectacular great room.  Come see this fresh modern style with indoor/outdoor accesibility, flowing with leading-edge designs throughout.  An entertainer's dream with huge views and pool.  Your passport to an authentic coastal North County lifestyle.

Above the scenic roads that wind through idyllic Encinitas Ranch, sits Lynwood Drive, where executive style homes are dotted along premium lots with lush mature landscapes framing gorgeous and sweeping views.  The front yard of 625 Lynwood has a center-lined pathway leading through colorful foliage to a heavy wooden exterior door, opening onto the home’s interior courtyard.

A gateway to the formal entry, the courtyard serves several additional functions.  It extends and connects the interior side of the kitchen with a detached bonus retreat, currently configured as an “exercise/game room”.  It also floods natural lighting from the interior side of virtually every room in the home.  And the courtyard itself is perfect for gathering around a firepit, offering another outdoor hangout space separate from the backyard, to enjoy a meal, take in sun, or project movies on the wall. 

The formal entryway opens onto an intuitive floor plan, with kitchen, great room, dining room, living room, music room, and a short hallway to a private lower-level guest suite (complete with separate entrance, kitchenette, walk-in closet, bathroom, and linen closet).

By removing a wall, and adding three huge La Cantina folding doors, both the interior courtyard and amazing backyard areas now flow effortlessly through what has become the showcases of the home:  a soulful gourmet kitchen and open-concept great room.  The kitchen is not just aesthetically designed, but also built for serious cooking.  From the induction cooktop and all-new Thermador and Bosch appliances, to butler pantry and French-door under-counter refrigerators… your recipes will be Instagram-ready.  

10-foot ceilings, giant folding doors, and oversized windows flood natural lighting from many angles, and offer sweet smelling breezes to and from the ocean and natural bluffs to the east.  A modern take on the highly utilitarian “mud room” is tastefully hidden behind beautiful custom cabinetry, strategically located opposite the set of La Cantina Doors opening to the backyard.

The classic character of the original heavy wrought iron staircase leading upstairs was both preserved and brought current, creating a more modern and timeless feel at the center of the home.  Form and function now rise in a loose spiral toward a cozy library at the gateway to the second floor.  With ample shelving to house many books or art pieces, the casing is finished in a more modern color that coordinates with the stairway railing and lends an understated feel to a bold design choice.

While the view feels elevated from the ground level, it becomes spectacular upstairs.  Like the rest of the home, the master suite renovation is transformative.  The long wall of the primary bedroom features oversized windows to a huge backcountry view, and the balcony outside is arranged in parallel to help occupants fully appreciate amazing sunrises with seats for taking coffee or spying on nature.  One cool thing about the balcony is that the entrance was moved just outside the primary suite, so it can be accessed separately.  This also opened the second floor to receiving more natural light from the east.

Now, if the primary bedroom is luxurious, the primary bathroom is Architectural-Digest-worthy.  This suite was taken down to the studs, and re-partitioned to create a spa-like experience.  This beautiful space feels at once both ultra-modern and timeless.  The elegant fixtures and custom cabinetry bathed in soft natural lighting might just tempt you to start some days a bit late.  The closet is now a dedicated dressing room, complete with graceful chandelier, generous center island dresser, and custom crafted organizers.

All five bedrooms and two offices have been remodeled.  All bedrooms are en suite, and all have walk-in closet organizers.  And while all the bathrooms share a common design language, each was granted a unique and respective personality.

This ground-up 10-month renovation project was completed in November 2021 with the intent to hold for long-term residency.  See “Improvements” list for a breakdown too comprehensive to include here.  Suffice to say, virtually every surface area of the home was improved, remodeled, and/or renovated.  Many under-the-hood upgrades have also been added, like whole-home solar, solar for the pool, two battery-compatible inverters, electric vehicle charging, new 75-gallon water heater, whole house water purification system, all new HVAC (2 heating units, 3 AC units), Nest thermostats, smartphone appliances, new pool equipment, and interior and exterior painting.

Giant folding doors extend the kitchen and great room to a new outdoor kitchen, sitting area, and modern outdoor fireplace, all of which overlook a large swimming pool and spa.  Gardeners will enjoy catching great sunlight in the grassy south-facing side yard, which features three, large, raised planting areas.  A true entertainer’s backyard, this indoor/outdoor experience is your passport to an authentic North County lifestyle.

Coveted locations on Lynwood Drive offer privacy, easy trail access, and big views.  Play in the pool, take shade on the patio, cuddle by the outdoor fireplace, or drink beers grilling dinner… all beside unobstructed views of sprawling greens, walking trails, evening lights, and snow-capped mountains in the winter.  And at the risk of being too “Realtor-ish” when writing this copy, it would be a disservice not to mention the peek ocean views you also get from the west-facing rooms upstairs, which truly do make the home feel elevated and connected to everything coastal.

Encinitas Ranch is an exclusive community of executive style luxury homes, located a short scenic drive from the ocean.  Among the diverse architectural backdrop of North County, few neighborhoods offer such charming curb appeal as the stately homes that line these idyllic streets.  A few minutes from the coast, this coveted neighborhood is everything we love about the beach, without the tight quarters and parking pressure.  With the refreshing character of a bygone era, Encinitas Ranch exudes a throwback culture, where neighbors greet each other, kids play in streets, holiday décor brightens each season, and special things converge to make this house a home filled with rich and sought-after experiences.

This neighborhood sits above Historic Hwy 101, Downtown Encinitas, Cardiff Towne Centre, and Cedros Design District. Move here, and instantly plug into award-winning schools, world-class surf, great restaurants, farmers’ markets, shops, galleries, parks, trails, train station, freeway access, and everything North County has to offer.
