Star-Worthy Home in Hidden Hills Asks $22M
Even celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Howie Mandell and the Kardashians are impressed by this newest, most luxurious addition to their exclusive, gated community.another home in Be l Air , they put it back on the market before they moved in, preferring this one with a larger lot, and closer to family.
One of the best kept celebrity secrets in L.A. is the city within a city of Hidden Hills, a bucolic and ultra-private equestrian community where the likes of J-Lo can push a baby carriage down a country lane without so much as a whiff of the paparazzi.
Which is why it was a good bet for a luxury home developer to buy several acres from Lisa Marie Presley in this community, then build the most lavish home of them all, which includes eight bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, a master suite that could easily house a large family by itself and two full-sized pools.
Then they threw in a couple of vineyards that produce grapes for sparkling white wine, eight fireplaces, three fountains, a 1,000+-square-foot outdoor entertaining pavilion and a posh guesthouse. And that’s just the beginning of a long list of features for which the builders are asking $22 million – more than any other house in the area.

Although it’s located just off the 101 in the Calabasas area, you simply can’t get there from here. Hidden Hills is accessible only by three heavily guarded gates, which makes it ideal for the rich and famous, especially if they have young ones. The incorporated city is noted for its children’s theater program, quaint parades and celebrations, summer camp and community barbecues.
This luxurious new home is family-oriented as well — the little ones get their own pool with a rock waterslide, spa and outdoor kitchen. There’s also a guesthouse and a private servants wing, for the nanny, celebrity assistant, housekeeper and groundskeeper.
For the parents, there’s one of the most amazing master suites ever built, at roughly 3,000 square feet, with two fireplaces, a sitting room, a kitchenette and lavish his-and-hers bathrooms and separate closets joined by an extensive dressing area. There’s also a spacious gym with a view, with giant flat screen TV, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, sauna and a beautiful, private outdoor courtyard with a spa.
For the entire family, there’s one of the most extravagant private screening rooms in L.A., an elegant man cave, and a kitchen with not one, not two, but three islands. Its adjoining family room opens out to a pool area that can easily accommodate hundreds of guests for parties and fundraisers on the lawn and patio.
Discreet security cameras mounted all over the property’s approximately three acres keep the family safe, and just in case someone would like to add a stable and horse ranch to the estate, the equestrian property behind this one is also for sale.
While multiple A-list celebrities have toured the property – some several times, our guess is that it will particularly appeal to a media mogul with young children and grandchildren, who is rumored to be looking for vineyard property in the Los Angeles area. Stay tuned.
