A Rancho Santa Fe estate is currently listed at $92 million and, if sold at the asking price, it would be the biggest sale in San Diego County history. The most expensive home ever sold in San Diego County was in 2007 for $35 million in Del Mar.
A 210-acre 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 four-bedroom main house was built in the early 1970’s and was designed by architect Fred Briggs. It is described as “soft Contemporary” for its walls of glass, concrete features, and marble floors.
Beside the lake, the property has 40 acres of orange grooves, a tennis court, an indoor swimming pool, a jacuzzi, four-car garage, barn with horse stables, a 6,080-squere-foot office and maintenance building and a 920-squere-foot guest house.
The ranch was the longtime home of the late Roland Sahm, founder of the manufacturing conglomerate Elixir Industries, and his late wife Ramona. The elder Mr. Sahm died in 2003, and his wife in 2013. Their son said he hopes the buyer will keep the property intact. “This is the largest parcel left in Rancho Santa Fe, and I hope it stays that way,” he said.
