Designed by world-renowned architect John Reed AIA, this Calabasas, California, estate exudes captivating charm and uncompromising style. From the moment you enter the property’s courtyard, you’re transported to a Tuscan dreamscape. Fronted with a wonderful beam-trellised loggia, the house envisioned by owner, real estate developer, and builder James Ring is anything but typical.
Created as a primary residence within the exclusive Estates of the Oaks community, this fantastic Venetian-style farmhouse sports 11,488 square feet of meticulous craftsmanship, charm, and functionality. From the exquisite stonework and fine plaster to the Eden-like grounds, the designers created a liveable masterpiece inside and out. The home’s entry courtyard leads to sparkling glass entry doors. Inside, a flawless Versailles-pattern limestone floor leads to opulent yet comfortable living spaces.
This exquisite home has six bedrooms and 10 full baths, as well as a family room, a living room, formal and casual dining rooms, a library, and much more. At the center of the residence, a spacious country kitchen features a pizza oven, premium appliances, and two islands, all accented by a traditional brick ceiling.
The home has two master suites, one of which features a private open-air terrace with a fireplace, offering unmatched views of the meticulously maintained grounds and the Santa Monica Mountains. This suite also has his-and-her spa baths, walk-in closets, and access to an upper-level office cleverly hidden behind a bookshelf. The second suite has a gym with a dry sauna and a bath with a steam shower. Four more en-suite amenity bedrooms each feature unique tile and glass touches, fireplaces, and personalized amenities that open onto the courtyard outside.
With 1.42 acres of vibrant Italian gardens, the property is one of the finest examples of countryside architecture in California. The grounds also include a small orchard of olive trees, a waterfall, a pond, and a cutting rose garden.
The property features a separate guest house with a pool, an outdoor kitchen and bar, a six-car garage, and a two-car attached garage. Other notable features include a 500-gallon saltwater aquarium, a 15-seat home theater, and an 800-bottle wine cellar with a tasting room.
