At a time when celebrity sightings are rarer than ever, your best bet to catch a glimpse of your favorite A-listers would be to actually move in next to them. If only, am I right?
But for the lucky few whose pockets run deep enough to afford it, an impeccably designed home recently came to market in the exclusive Rancho Estates area of Encino — a sought-after celebrity compound where the likes of Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, and Anthony Anderson live.
The exquisite home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and promises a lifestyle on par with that of your favorite celebrities. It recently came to market with a $7.795 million price tag, with Craig Knizek of The Agency leading marketing efforts for the property. And since a picture is worth a thousand words, let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Nestled behind secure gates and tall hedges, the ultra-private property sits on a 0.737-acre lot. The house itself, a Classic Tuscan built in 2006, rises two stories tall and offers 9,759 square feet of luxurious living space.
Recently reimagined in 2020, the villa was appointed with select finishes that include natural stone, species woods, and beautiful fixtures. The family room flows into an inviting chef’s kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a huge center island, bar seating, and a walk-in pantry. There’s also a 500-bottle wine cellar.
The owner’s suite amps up the luxury with its sheer size, 2 fireplaces, and an outdoor veranda which overlooks the entire estate. It leads into a massive walk-in closet, as well as a spa-like master bath with a luxurious walk-in steam shower and jetted soaking tub which, as the listing puts it, “rivals the Presidential Suite at the finest hotels”.
There are 3 additional en-suite bedrooms that are adjacent to the owner’s suite and 2 downstairs guest rooms — one of them being a good candidate for a home office, as it comes with its own side entrance.
We can’t wrap things up without taking a minute to marvel at the beautiful outdoor area, with its resort-style backyard that makes you feel like you’re off vacationing in some exotic destination.
Surrounded by lush landscaping, the backyard comes with a pool, spa, a 2nd open-air lounge, a cozy fireplace, and an awesome cabana/gym with its own bath (that can serve as a separate guest house, if needed).
