Rustic Lane Estate | Pacific Palisades
Set amidst the oaks and sycamores of Pacific Palisades and on a private enclave known as Rustic Lane, this magnificent 3.6-acre gated estate includes an exquisitely-crafted Hamptons-style main residence; the landmark Lloyd Wright-designed Alfred Newman Estate; and a 1.2-acre parcel of sprawling park land zoned for equestrian use. With idyllic grounds, elegant interiors and total privacy, this remarkable compound is a sanctuary from the bustle of L.A., yet perfectly sited for enjoying the quintessential Southern California lifestyle.
THE MAIN RESIDENCE
An extended driveway and grand motor court lead to a nearly 8,400 square foot main residence that exudes an effortless, sophisticated charm. From an eye-catching Pennsylvania railroad tie ceiling in the main foyer to the beautiful woodwork and rich walnut floors throughout, the home radiates warmth and elegance.
A gourmet chef’s kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances, as well as a climate controlled wine closet and butler’s pantry. The formal dining room flows into a spacious living room with stone fireplace, and an adjacent wood-paneled study boasts stunning built-in bookshelves. Glass pocket doors in both rooms inspire seamless indoor-outdoor living.
The lofty second-level master suite features soaring vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace, partners’ dressing rooms and grand picture windows overlooking the grounds as well as a stunning master bath with soaking tub. The upper level bedrooms share a beautiful shaded balcony overlooking the pool terrace, lawn, and gardens below. An additional room off the master suite is perfectly suited for a sitting room or nursery.
A magnificent outdoor living area is ideal for entertaining. Lush green lawns and mature trees surround the pool terrace and patio with a full outdoor kitchen, pool house with fireplace and one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house with separate living room.
Amenities and features such as a Control4 home automation system with 40 security cameras, cinema room with tiered seating and built-in surround sound, Viking appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Carrara marble countertops, Paul Ferrante fixtures and hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper to complete this exquisite estate.
ALFRED NEWMAN ESTATE
Designed by renowned architect Lloyd Wright, son of the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright, this five-bedroom architectural masterpiece blends indoor and outdoor living with an open concept floor plan, contemporary simplicity and architectural details that personify mid-20th century modernism.
Giant windows flood the main living area with natural light; coffered, beamed ceilings soar above; and sliding glass doors open to the outside for a seamless integration with nature. The living room overlooks the pool terrace and surrounding woods and is the ideal space for entertaining.
A gourmet kitchen features original built-in cabinetry, as well as modern design elements and designer appliances. A staggering master suite features custom built-in furniture, office area and picture windows overlooking the property. Two additional detached bedroom suites with floor-to-ceiling windows offer absolute privacy and beautiful views of the property.
A magnificent outdoor living area is complete with a spacious, hexagonal-shaped pool, fireplace, hand-built pizza oven, bocce court, and temperature-controlled wine cellar.
Beyond the pool terrace of the main residence is the estate’s impressive third parcel, a 1.2 acre meadow, zoned for equestrian use, with a duck pond and storage shed. An orchard uphill from the main house features Fuji and Granny Smith apple trees, a citrus grove with Valencia orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit trees, four mature avocado trees, peach and pomegranate trees and varieties of California oak and Norfolk Island pine. The centerpiece of the upper garden is a classic English rose garden and an enclosed vegetable/herb garden. These are punctuated by a cascading waterfall that flows under a footbridge leading to a shady patio area and fire pit. A hiking trail creates a parkland journey throughout the grounds and its surroundings.
The privacy and security of this completely enclosed compound is extraordinary. Featuring three entrance gates, 70% of the property is bordered by creek or land barrier, providing absolute seclusion from nearby Sunset Boulevard.
With complete privacy and beautiful grounds to roam, Rustic Lane epitomizes California living at its most elegant. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an incredible property in one of Los Angeles’ most coveted neighborhoods.
