We will be talking Fairmont Privates Residences at Ghirardelli Square exclusive fractional vacation ownership TONIGHT at this gorgeous listing — with Virginia Cook agents Jolene Crawford and Diane Duvall Rogers’– over at 4724 Saint Johns Drive. Might I add, the honeypot of Saint John’s Drive.

The backyard has a huge pool with built-in seating and a mighty romantic little spa. I can totally tell this is a bachelor’s home — he gets her in that spa, she won’t get out. Check out the black and white rooms — who needs shades of grey? Designs by Kathy Allardyce of Allardyce Interiors. The lot is enormous for Highland park, at 80 by 190 WOOHOO but if that isn’t big enough for you, the lot next door is available for an additional price.

You own a home like this, you never want to leave. But when leave you must, you have an upscale fractional residence in San Francisco, Santa Fe, Whistler, Telluride, Acapulco, the Florida Gulf Coast or Europe. Everything is done for you, all you do is enjoy… just like being at home.
