Star Wars fans will be over the moon for this Hidden Hills estate. Represented by Arvin Haddad, Emil Hartoonian and Mauricio Umansky, this contemporary craftsman-style home at features a 5,000-square-foot basement bedecked with hundreds of works inspired by the popular film series. These include one-of-a-kind commissions by numerous artists and prop-makers—from life-size Darth Vader and Yoda figures to a spot-on recreation of the iconic cantina scene from “Episode IV,” complete with a mural that shows the desert terrain of Luke Skywalker’s home planet. The basement also boasts a thoughtfully designed home theater with a 19-foot screen and Star Wars-inspired design details.
Select pieces from the collection are available for sale along with the home, which is offered at $26.5 million—but, due to the homeowner’s attachment to the hard-won replicas and designs, not all items are up for grabs.
Comprehensive collection aside, the six-bed, 11-bath estate offers a number of other unique elements. Elsewhere in the 18,200-square-foot estate, find a fully-equipped mirrored gym, a hidden safe room, a 750-gallon aquarium with tropical fish and a custom-built music studio with acoustically insulated walls, raised floors and geometric acoustic diffusers.
Outside, more incredible features await—a full-size tennis/multi-sport court, a private stargazing observatory with telescope, an indoor/outdoor pool and spa with a grotto, waterfall and waterslide and a spacious outdoor loggia made for alfresco entertaining. The estate is surrounded by a lush fruit tree orchard, grapevines, and an organic herb garden. The pool is outfitted with solar heating, a 24-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system and propane generator coupled with “smart-home” technology—all of which add to the home’s energy efficiency.
