Built in 2001, the liberally pastiched neoclassical English Manor-style house weighs in at a whopping 10,400 square feet of living space with six beds and nine baths, and was sold by a non-famous couple who purchased the property just over a year ago — in April 2018 — for exactly $6 million. Exuberantly described in marketing materials as a “world class landmark estate,” the 1.27-acre estate is completely gated — despite its location within a guard-gated community — and includes garage parking for up to eight luxury vehicles. There are scenic mountain and golf fairway views from the front yard, and a grand entryway that opens to a foyer with an eye-catching crystal chandelier and double staircase. An eat-in kitchen with expensive stainless appliances conveniently spills out to both a breakfast nook and a wet bar- and fireplace-equipped family room. Elsewhere there’s a nine-seat movie theater, a wood-paneled billiards room, formal dining room with fireplace, and a gilt-trimmed living room with yet another fireplace — this one so gigantic that two adult humans could easily stand inside it, no contortionist maneuvers necessary. The lavish master bedroom has a sitting area and writing desk arranged around a fireplace, while the master bath has dual vanities and built-in soaking tub with mountain views. There are five other bedrooms, all of them ensuite, while other interior amenities include an office and a wine cellar/closet. Outdoors, the estate’s grounds include expansive formal lawns, gardens and sculpted hedgerows, a stone fountain, a pool/spa combo with glitzy waterfall features, two separate shaded lanais and a loggia for multiple al fresco dining options, a full kitchen with bar, and an extra-large outdoor fireplace. Meanwhile, the detached two-story guesthouse is currently outfitted with a bedroom, an office, and a private art studio.
