The Agency is thrilled to announce the debut of the first two homes at The Farms at Malibu Valley, the only luxury new development in Calabasas. Spread across 70 acres and exclusively represented by Emil Hartoonian and John Herkenrath, the private, gated enclave features a limited collection of approximately 26 ultra high-end homes surrounded by breathtaking views of the Malibu Conservancy.
Blending the charm of Old California with echoes of Tuscany and the Mediterranean, the peaceful, country retreat is within easy access of Los Angeles and the best of Calabasas while offering a serene reprieve from the bustle of city life. Surrounded by public parkland and within moments of Malibu Creek State Park, the community includes a fully-equipped equestrian center featuring boarding facilities, a riding ring, feeding and bathing stalls and is just moments from the picturesque riding and hiking trails in the Santa Monica Mountains, prime shopping and dining at the Commons of Calabasas, Calabasas Country Club and the beaches of Malibu.
The first two homes to debut in the collection feature a combination of paramount craftsmanship and finishes with expansive grounds to roam and enjoy. Situated on nearly one-and-a-half acres and showcasing over 7,000 square feet of living space, 26769 Mulholland Highway is an Italianate-style masterpiece revealing modern opulence at every turn. An impressive entry leads to a grand chef’s kitchen with a Carrara marble slab island, built-in Gaggenau appliances and a dual La Cornue Fe Range. Six voluminous bedroom suites all feature ensuite baths, while the magnificent master suite opens to panoramic views of the Santa Monica Conservancy and includes a spa with heated floors, white Carrara marble, and Jeffrey Court and AZT Bianco custom finishes.
An impeccably scaled, single-level Spanish-style home, 26715 Mulholland Highway showcases nearly 6,500 square feet of living space with soaring, 22-foot ceilings throughout. The main house consists of a chef-caliber kitchen with built-in Gaggenau appliances and a 48-inch Bertazzoni Heritage Range along with four bedrooms suites, while a detached, two-bedroom guest house is ideal for family and out of town guests. Elegant interiors include St. Laurent Collection European Oak Hardwood flooring with tile insets by Jeffrey Court, while Bevolo glass lanterns surrounding the property exude a striking presence in the twilight hours. Each home can be custom-tailored to suit one's needs, from bedroom closet upgrades to backyard amenities.
“The Farms at Malibu Valley represents a new flavor of the Calabasas lifestyle,” says Emil. “The community offers incredible privacy, exquisitely crafted homes and a proximity to the best that Calabasas and Malibu offer, all set against breathtaking views. John and I are proud to represent this exciting new development and look forward to unveiling the next phase of homes in this exclusive collection—including an ultra-modern craftsman home to debut soon.”
