After building one of California’s most successful businesses, the great business tycoon and philanthropist, beloved Roland Sahm, decided to build Del Dios Ranch. Located in the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe, Del Dios Ranch comprises some 49+ acres with 360-degree views from its private hilltop setting. Situated in a prized section of Rancho Santa Fe, the estate is one of the largest offerings available in the area. The residence is a marvel of great design with its redwood, glass, and marble structure, complemented by foundations and framework of poured-in-place concrete. This magnificent property boasts producing Valencia orange groves on 40 acres, a lake, guest house, tennis court, and equestrian facilities. The house was crafted by well-known architect Fred Briggs, who distinguished the property with soaring, vaulted ceilings; walls and beams of redwood that was milled on the property itself; radiant-heated marble floors; and glass skylights and windows. An entire wing of the house has been dedicated to a serene indoor pool and spa facility, while the master suite occupies its own exclusive second level. Three en-suite bedrooms are located on a separate first floor wing. The home’s interior was created by celebrated designer Arthur Elrod. Completed in 1973, the main residence took more than three years to construct. The Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe is known for its top-ranking schools, its exclusive golf course, and proximity to the Del Mar Racetrack and Pacific Ocean beaches, which are among the finest in the country.
