Property Description

This one-of-a-kind home is like a French Chateau straight from a fairy tale, with expansive canyon and ocean views. It was designed by famed architect John O’Neill as his personal residence. A tree-lined, cobblestone driveway leads to an impressive structure of stucco and stone covered with ivy and accented with iron lanterns and sconces. A charming Dutch door leads to an interior with amazing wood beam ceiling treatments, arched doorways, Venetian-like plaster walls, and hand-hewn wood floors throughout. The kitchen has the perfect blend of Old World charm and state-of-the-art amenities, featuring stone countertops; custom wood cabinetry; a copper sink; and high-end Sub-Zero, Viking, and Bosch appliances. The custom breakfast nook area in the kitchen has French doors that open onto private, adjoining balconies overlooking breathtaking vistas. The living room has a magnificent wood beam cathedral ceiling, oversized limestone fireplace, and walls of French doors. Multiple decks allow for romantic sunset views and cool ocean breezes, enhancing the chateau’s storybook ambiance. The main floor offers a bedroom with a cozy fireplace, wine cellar with accents of stone and wood, and library with a book-lined doorway leading outside. The keep has a sweeping spiral staircase ascending to the private master suite, which has a sitting area with a fireplace and secluded private balcony. An enchanting bridge leads from the master bedroom to a detached studio where John O’Neill designed some of his renowned homes. The stunning grounds feature multiple waterfalls that cascade down a lush hillside with meandering walkways, along with an outside patio with a fireplace. Additional features include state-of-the-art energy-efficient air conditioning and heating system, EV charging station, custom interior doors, state-of-the-art and energy efficient fountain, and so much more… Be transported to the French countryside without ever leaving Southern California in this architectural masterpiece and haven for entertainers and Romantics.
