Never before offered for sale, this magnificent custom estate is available for purchase for the first time since its original owners completed construction in 2002. Exquisitely constructed, this elegant home sits atop its own, private 5.35-acre ridge, offering outstanding unobstructed panoramic city light views. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac within the 24-hour guard-gated community of Rolling Hills, this home has the ultimate level of privacy and security in a tranquil, rural setting. Rolling Hills is a unique community because all of the homes are located on close to or over one acre lots and all are zoned for horses. There are over 50 miles of hiking trails, riding rings, and tennis courts within the community. Expansive grounds surround this home, with a dramatic circular driveway and a large flat pad directly behind the property that would be suitable for an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU) or large barn with corrals. The chicken coop is already built and producing eggs!
Dramatic and breathtaking the moment you walk in, the soaring ceilings, wide hallways, and an open floor plan is perfect for large scale entertaining as well as having warm and inviting qualities for your intimate gatherings.
