Breathtaking and serene property peacefully secluded from the rest of the world, in the exclusive and private Rustic Lane enclave of the Pacific Palisades. This home is in a perfect location - just minutes from Malibu, Brentwood and Santa Monica. This 1.12 acre, equestrian zoned compound is offered after a major renovation with a flawless blend of natural beauty, romantic heritage, and classic luxury. The luxurious farmhouse estate, reimagined by architect/designer Marc Appleton, includes over 10,000 square feet of living space spread amongst 4 structures, affording you a countryside escape. No expense has been spared with this seven bedroom, ten bathroom property which includes an exquisite, inviting and nostalgic main residence, a large two-story guest pool house, a separate second guest house gym/spa and a bespoke stone wine house converted from a 1950's bomb shelter with temperature controlled capacity for over 1,000 bottles. These additional lifestyle structures enhance over an acre of vast lawns and include a bocce ball court and batting cage for leisure activities. Mature, majestic and fruit bearing trees are abundant on the property, with an outdoor summer kitchen, al fresco dining porch and fire pit situated under a canopy of Olive and Oak trees. The patio, pool and outdoor spa area evoke the essence of San Ysidro Ranch as lavender adorns every enchanting corner and hummingbirds and honey bees mingle throughout the conversation areas. The gated and secure entrance to this estate is on the private Rustic Lane and opens to an expansive motor court and garages with an attached catering center which serves the large gatherings and charity events that are often hosted on the grounds. The main house still retains its original 1952 farmhouse details such as vaulted ceilings, wood beams, stone and solid oak peg and groove planked floors and enormous fireplaces, but takes on great enhancements with luxurious bathrooms, Venetian plaster walls, a grand chef's kitchen and great room along with state-of-the-art electronics including lighting systems, electronic shades, audio-visual systems and security systems. An authentic English pub "The Bull" offers a cozy retreat and gathering place while a gallery music room with grand piano provides more room to relax. The primary wing is a private retreat of its own with a vaulted sitting room joined by an enormous his-and-hers marble bathroom and seemingly endless closet space. Three additional spacious en-suite guest bedrooms and an upstairs study/den complete The Farm House. The two-story guest/pool house has its own kitchen, laundry and living room, opening to the new pool and patio for seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining. Upstairs, two private guest suites create a tranquil escape with breathtaking scenery, offering a stunning space for your guests. The luxurious primary suite heralds vaulted ceilings and a second, large bunkhouse style suite with handcrafted built-in bunks for four. The newly built second guesthouse/spa has a large open, flexible space that is currently used as a gym but could be a bedroom suite, office, dance or recording studio. There is also a wet/dry sauna and bathroom included. This sophisticated and idyllic compound offers a comprehensive luxury lifestyle like no other in Southern California.
