Located in a highly-desirable, gated, canyon community, this property has been relatively untouched since its construction in 1951. Classic midcentury touches, Hollywood regency bedrooms, and a trophy room make this a one of a kind location. The latter contains a bar, taxidermy (a lion, bears, deer etc), a pool table, a six foot stone fireplace framed by elephant tusks, and floor to ceiling windows looking out over a beautiful aqua tile kidney-shaped pool. The pool area has a diving board, a palm island, and a pool house, with steps leading down to an orchard and nearly two acres of untouched canyon wilderness. This property has been featured in numerous photo shoots and a professionally produced music video but remains relatively unexposed, meaning your project will still be fresh and unique.
