This majestic property, set on almost three-quarters of an acre, boasts over $1.3 million in upgrades. The estate has undergone a complete modernization. The ground floor has been re-engineered to create an enormous, contemporary open concept with all new marble and DuChateau wood flooring throughout. The gourmet kitchen, too, has been upgraded with new appliances and electronics including four new Fisher/Paykel dishwashers, four ovens, a Gaggenau stove with six burners, and two grills. All bedrooms are large; and all bathrooms are completely remodeled.

For technology buffs, this Smart Home is completely programmable via cell phone from anywhere in the world. All electronics are remotely controllable including the extensive camera and security system, heating, air conditioning, and lighting.

From an energy standpoint, 11 Old Ranch Road is state of the art and includes four, brand-new, energy-efficient air-conditioning units.

All-in-all, this is the ultimate live and work compound for the most discriminating and affluent homebuyer. The majestic home sits on one of only a few parcels in Bear Brand Ranch where the front and back yards are equally expansive. The private, entertainers’ back yard includes outdoor speakers and a massive mosaic-tiled saltwater pool and jacuzzi—also temperature-controlled via Smart Home technology—along with a covered patio, automatic shades, and brand-new outdoor bathroom and shower suite. With 37 beautiful palm trees adorning the estate, this property is a true oasis in paradise.
