On the market for $55 million, “It’s architecturally the most significant home on the west side of town,” says Gary Glass of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, the listing agent.
Glass told us the property, which was completed this year, took “three to four years to build,” and offers “spectacular ocean and mountain views.”
What was once a hacienda-style estate has been transformed into a contemporary showpiece. Purchased in 2006 for $8.5 million, the existing home was “torn down to the studs” to make way for approximately 15,000 square feet of luxurious living space.
Nestled in a private cul-de-sac, the property now seamlessly combines indoor and outdoor living. And with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, there’s plenty of room to spread out.
Glass says, “The space and the feel of the house is just extraordinary.”
It’s not difficult to agree. The floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors completely disappear, to bring the outdoors inside. The effortless expansion of the living area to the exterior decks affords dramatic views.
Inside, the bright living room, with its walls of glass, flows out to the deck and pool, providing vistas to the ocean. Other highlights include the dining room, built-in bar area, and a chef’s kitchen with breakfast area. And if one kitchen isn’t enough, there’s a second, gourmet kitchen. If you’d rather eat al fresco, head to the outdoor barbecue.
The master suite features a sitting room with a fireplace and showroom closets. On the lower level you’ll find a family room, movie theatre, walk-in wine cellar, and bar.
Also on that level, enjoy the benefits of a “health spa,” equipped with infrared sauna, cold plunge, and an oversized gym.
Outside, the 2.2 landscaped acres feature a pool, spa, and multiple decks. Plus, there’s an oversized garage and space for covered parking as well.
Private showings aroused strong interest. As a result, Glass decided to open up the doors to this brand-new beauty to a wider audience.
