With a celebrity pedigree, resort-style grounds, and a productive Chardonnay and Malbec vineyard area, this custom Mediterranean estate is a private sanctuary for comfortable living and lavish entertaining. Spacious and inviting, it combines exquisite classical details, such as coffered ceilings and marble floors, with large windows, gorgeous natural light, and wonderful indoor-outdoor flow. Set behind gates on over 2.1 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac, the compound includes a large, waterfall grotto swimming pool, bocce court, and irrigated landscaping for the vineyard area and gardens.
The huge, arched entry doors open to a gracious foyer with an enormous fanlight looking out at the ocean-view balcony that wraps around the living room, dining room, and family room. The formal living room has a fireplace, illuminated shelves, and French doors onto the balcony, where there is room for dining and entertaining as well as views over the expansive grounds, the ocean, and the Santa Monica Mountains. The octagonal dining room has a very tall chandelier-height ceiling and also opens to the balcony, as does the family room, with another fireplace, coffered ceiling, and beautiful wood-inset floor. The family room leads to the kitchen by way of a breakfast table and a large, built-in saltwater fish tank. The sensational kitchen is equipped for the most extravagant entertaining, with a large island, extensive glass-front cabinets and counter space, granite countertops, top-grade appliances, and a butler’s pantry. Also on the main level is an en-suite bedroom, currently used as an office, a powder room, and a laundry room.
On the lower level, built around a large library hall with another saltwater fish tank and doors to the back yard, the home’s four other spacious en-suite bedrooms include a gracious owner’s suite, complete with fireplace, sitting area, a wall of illuminated library shelving, dual custom closets with cedar built-ins, a lovely balcony, backyard access, and a gorgeous bath complete with steam shower and Jacuzzi. One of the bedrooms on this level has a full-wall floral mural imported from Europe.
The terraced backyard features a large patio for dining and entertaining with tables and couch, counter space, and bar seating. This area provides access to the 400-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar and there is a pool bathroom on this level as well. Steps lead down to the Pebble Tec pool, which is complete with a water slide, a cave with a bench and water-trickle feature, a dining area, a large lounging deck, and access to the bocce court, which is surrounded by additional space for lounging and entertaining. Vineyard access is by foot bridge from this area. There is a three-car garage, plus room for guest parking.
This is an exceptionally comfortable and elegant residence, with wide-reaching views in a peaceful setting.
