Description

This Spanish-Revival castle is an architectural masterpiece, atop a sprawling 8 acres of private land. The Collins-Wellington Estate is a highly coveted, seldom seen, unique offering in San Diego. Built by the visionary H.A. Collins in 1928, this exquisitely crafted castle epitomizes the grandeur and opulence of the 1920s. This tranquil, light-filled, secluded estate later became the Wellington familys prized possession, and was famous for the hosting of parties for southern Californias elite. This home is listed on the Historic Register, and enjoys significant property tax savings under the Mills Act. The gated driveway leads to a one-quarter mile drive up to your private mansion. Featuring 5766 square feet of luxury living, the castle residence is a marvel of classic architectural design and meticulous attention to detail. From the soaring high beam ceilings, to the inlaid onyx flooring and hand-painted ceiling designs, to the peg and bowtie curly oak floors, this castle is a testament to the elegance and quality of old-world construction not seen in todays homes. Every room has its own unique design motif and personality, with differing wall, floor, and ceiling design treatments. And the genuine Spanish Castle design motifs, of repeating arches and intricate wrought iron, echo in harmony throughout. Four bedrooms, each with en-suite bath, provide spaces for additional sitting areas or in-home offices. This homes double foyer has spectacular stone castle walls and gold gilding, and features a beautifully crafted wrought iron staircase with colorful Spanish tiles, leading to an upstairs loft that is perfect for a home office or an additional bedroom. The 35 x 25 grand ballroom/living room features expansive windows, a spectacular 18 foot high cathedral ceiling, and a balcony overlooking the ballroom, from which live musicians serenaded dancers in the ballroom below. The capacious 35 x 20 dining room boasts high beamed ceilings and an inlaid onyx floor. An updated kitchen with spacious granite island, cupboards galore, and modern appliances allows for entertaining on a grand scale with family and friends. A sunny breakfast nook (below the castles tower) provides a cozy spot for family meals. The oversized 10 car garage gives you ample room for your automotive collection and also clean storage. There is additional outdoor parking for guests. A huge sheltered inner courtyard provides space for outdoor entertaining. The 8 acres of private grounds offer opportunities for outdoor relaxation, the addition of a pool, added out-buildings, an ADU, curated gardens, and potential development. Perched high atop a hill, this majestic castle commands magnificent panoramic views overlooking downtown San Diego, the harbors, and the Pacific. The private drive takes you up to a tranquil retreat and a world of your own. This estate provides an unparalleled living experience and an escape from everyday cares, while still being very close to all that San Diego has to offer. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for you to live in a true castle, own a piece of history, and be a part of the ongoing renovation and evolution of this incredible property. The Collins-Wellington Estate is unique, above and beyond anything else on the market. More than a home, it gives you the emotional experience of living within an architectural work of art.
