Aviara

Looking Southwest over the Four Seasons Aviara golf course.

Aviara's Street of Dreams sits atop the hill in the middle of the Four Seasons Resortgolf course. The resort is the white complex on the left. The first nine holes encircles The Street of Dreams, which is in the middle bottoom of the photo, closer to the sea.

Homes on the Street of Dreams not only enjoy panoramic views of the ocean, these homes have views of the hills, lagoon and least tern preserve. They don't just have a view of the très luxe Arnold-Palmer designed Four Seasons Aviara golf course, they are dead smack in the middle of it!

The golf clubhouse is at the bottom of the street. Hole one is at the top of the photo on the lagoon. The course runs clockwise around the homes. The most desirable homes are along hole 4 with the broadest views to the sea. Play continues to holes 5 and 6 underneath the photo, continuing back up and around the homes to the left to return to the clubhouse for the ninth hole. Holes 10 through 18 are on the other side of the resort, the large white complex on the left.

These homes are too good for everyday use. Most of them are pied-à-terres for globe-hopping golfers for whom a suite at the Four Seasons just won't do.
