Perched atop 31 sprawling acres in San Diego, the storied Foxhill Estate of billionaire Doug Manchester has returned to market once more for $37.5 million. This grand manor originally debuted in summer 2022 priced up to $49 million across two configurations before the deal was sweetened with price cuts. Even still, no steward emerged for the 22,897-square-foot French-inspired palace.

Ivy-draped brick exteriors evoke old world elegance, while dormer windows punctuate the hipped roofline. Inside, a glitzy foyer dripping in crystal chandeliers welcomes guests. Traditional tropes define the interiors like parquet floors, panoramic wall coverings, and stately formal spaces. There are 10 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms.

Arguably the home’s crown jewel, the kitchen dazzles with custom millwork blanketing the ceilings and extravagant island. Banks of French doors open onto the grounds, while a relaxed dining area features a wet bar.

The sprawling acreage dazzles with amenities from tennis courts to an eight-car garage. Pristine gardens and orchards surround the estate, complemented by flawlessly manicured lawns. A pool pavilion, greenhouse, and fitness center provide lavish diversions just steps from the main home.

Perched atop the grounds, the manor commands sweeping panoramic ocean views. Behind gates ensuring total privacy, the palette of flawless exteriors and indulgent interiors elevates luxury living.

Current owners hoped the $49 million ask would entice a royal buyer to seize the unmatched grounds as their own private oasis. While the home remains unsold, the reduced $37.5 million price may yet see one of San Diego’s most famed estates change hands.

For developers or luxury seekers, Foxhill represents a trophy property with amenities galore across 31 unspoiled acres. Whether kept entirely private or transformed into exclusive parcels, the estate offers a bucolic hilltop haven just minutes from downtown.
