The phrase..you need to see it to believe it has never been more true to take in all that is 28610 Martingale.

The Oaks Farms gated community developed on the former estate and ranch of Joan Irvine Smith, horse trainer, and heiress to the Irvine family, boasts a few select properties with a view and a backyard scene found nowhere else in Orange County.

Here’s your rare chance to watch stallions jump while having your morning coffee. This 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath HAUS is the epitome of California indoor/outdoor living. Only your outdoor living exudes the wine country without the flight to Napa County.

The wrought iron entry is the gate to a different world and you are met with a front courtyard water feature that sounds like a mountain stream.& From there, a center courtyard features a lounge seating area under bistro lighting, open but covered outdoor dining, and an outdoor kitchen featuring an Argentinean Asador, A Wolf BBQ and perfect concrete board form pedestal for the Green Egg smoker.

The kitchen and great room are connected for seamless interaction of guests, and the walls of glass on both sides retract, transforming the center courtyard, great room, and backyard into ONE amazing space. This home traditionally hosts Thanksgiving with 50 people in attendance creating lifelong memories.

The end-all and be-all is the backyard, featuring a heated lap pool with a baja shelf and large hot tub, an open seating area with fire pit, an outdoor wet bar with icemaker and beverage refrigeration, lounge seating by a fireplace, all covered by a post and beam single slope shelter connecting the equestrian centers’ architecture to that of the house.

The upstairs master wing includes French doors to a porch with an amazing equestrian view, walk-in shower, a freestanding tub, a large custom closet as well as a private office. With 3 other bedrooms all with private baths this curated home will check all the boxes.

Of course, wine cannot be forgotten, and we won’t disappoint. There is a 300+ bottle, custom designed with commercial refrigeration and insulation for a perfect +58F of wine preservation and display.

Truly like being on vacation - except this is your everyday. And only minutes to Downtown San Juan, The Lantern District, Dana Point Harbor and San Clemente for all your shopping, dining and entertainment needs.
