Just a few blocks from the heart of the village of Rancho Santa Fe, you will find a sophisticated and elegant family compound that formerly was owned by the late Glen Bell Jr., founder of Taco Bell. The private property has two California-classic homes on the resort-like grounds.

In addition, the 6.75-acre estate features tropical landscaping, multiple swimming pools, a sports court, and orchards.

The second home on the property is a charming California ranch house with four bedrooms, three bathrooms on 3.12 acres. It also has a pool and spa, plus panoramic views of the property and orchards.

Purchased for $4.3 million in 1999, the home is now listed at an impressive $6,995,000. Bell, a Southern California native, died in 2010 at age 86. He sold the Taco Bell chain to PepsiCo in 1978 for $125 million.
