RANCHO SANTA FE | CA Hacienda 17515 Avenida De Acacias

Sold within 2 weeks after years on and off the market.

“One of the most spectacular properties in SoCal, this estate was sure to find a buyer once urgency was created and the opportunity was presented.” – Randy Haddaway

It’s not often we auction an authentic Spanish hacienda with so much attention to every detail.  And… we still didn’t get to this time either. The uniqueness of this Rancho Santa Fe, CA property is probably one of the reasons it struggled to find a buyer for several years on the market with traditional strategies.  But, after only two weeks into our marketing process, we located just the right buyer from Northern CA and it was a done deal. “Que Asombroso!”
