    I have to say : Rancho Santa Fe has a lot of great, high quality, mansions.

    An absolutely stunning home in almost every way……except that there’s just too damn much knotty (sp?) pine.

    Too much lumber. Every room looks alike, there’s no escape. Not enough of it has been worked into something elegant and stately. It’s mostly big beams, railroad ties, and popsicle sticks. And when the rustic crap bumps up against the nicer joinery, it’s incongruous. Enuff already. The location gets a 10, the house a 3.
