A French-inspired chateau designed by award-winning architect Richard Drummond Davis, this impressive Calabasas estate promises luxury and privacy in equal measures, according to Rachella Moghadam of Coldwell Banker Realty in Calabasas, who has listed the property for sale at $28,750,000.
Set on more that 1.1 acres behind the second gate in The Estates at The Oaks in Calabasas (about 30 miles north of Los Angeles), the residence enjoys a sweeping panorama of city and mountain views. Imported materials and the highest quality construction impart a classical timelessness to interiors that are both grand and intimate.
“This is an estate for someone who wants to entertain on a grand scale and also wants to enjoy the true comforts of home,” says Moghadam. “It’s palatial, and it’s also romantic,” she adds.
The house is replete with picturesque settings for gatherings large and small, from the double-height living room, two-story dining room, club room/lounge, plush movie theatre, family room and wine cellar to the expansive backyard complete with a 110-foot infinity-edge pool with dual footbridges, waterfalls and a large covered barbecue and dining pavilion and swim-up bar. The grounds also include a guest house, a fruit orchard, and manicured landscaping that features a formal parterre at the front of the property.
The 16,850 square-foot estate has seven en-suite bedrooms, including a romantic primary suite that has its own living room, fireplace, dual closets, kitchenette, and a private terrace with sweeping views. In addition to a lavish spa-style bath, there is a sauna and a massage room.
A gated community within a gated community, The Estates is known for its grand-scale properties and celebrity homeowners. “It’s an exceptional place to call home,” says Rachella Moghadam, “and this palatial estate fulfills every promise of The Estates lifestyle…and more!”
