Property Description

This stunning one-of-a-kind RANCH COMPOUND with multiple residences consists of 2 combined properties on almost 2.5 verdant acres. (Listing encompasses 17407 Rancho St.) A truly incomparable compound, the gated nature escape features 2 MAIN RESIDENCES, 2 GUEST HOUSES, a professional RECORDING STUDIO, a working BARN with BUNKHOUSE, POOL, SPA HOUSE, CORRALS for animals, WORKSHOP, SERVICE BUILDINGS, bridges and water features, and a meandering POND for visiting ducks and geese. Beyond the gates, just moments from Ventura Boulevard, a tree-lined drive welcomes you home to this very secluded and private multi-family retreat. The 1930s main house has been expanded and modernized over time and and is centered around an old-world style courtyard with outdoor fireplace for dinners al fresco. On the main level, family members can gather in the light-filled living room with soaring carved beam ceilings and Venetian plaster walls, ideal for displaying even the most exquisite art. Entertain visitors in the original speakeasy pub with secret passages, or in the family room with its generous fireplace and artisan-crafted wood walls with dramatic ceilings. Gourmet meals can be easily created in the expansive state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with its oversized hand-finished center island and top-level European appliances. From here, guests may choose to wander to one of 6 designer-done bedrooms or to an upstairs studio with its own aerie and terrace. The courtyard features strings of Fellini lights and an ivy-covered arch that leads to a 20-metre length pool enclosed by mature foliage for privacy. After a refreshing dip, one can relax in the built-in spa or enjoy the nearby sauna house with shower/lounge. Upon exiting the main house, cross a footbridge and stroll through enchanting acreage complete with pond, waterfalls and lush gardens to 3 completely remodeled guest houses. Visitors may choose to stay in the perfectly restored 3 bed 1957 mid-century home, classic in design and fully remodeled, outfitted with a professional RECORDING STUDIO and boasting a large deck with fire pit to entertain under the stars on warm California evenings. The 1bd/1ba writers' cottage oozes charm and features a deck that overlooks the pond filled with lily pads and hybrid ducks. The 3rd guest house is adjacent to the barn and is simply stunning with its hand-crafted wood flooring, vaulted ceilings, spa bath and chef's kitchen. The picturesque barn features a remodeled bunkhouse with bath, a horse turn out, corrals, and an adjoining herb garden and BBQ area. An abundance of fruit trees, flower gardens and the oldest Live Oak tree in LA county create a dazzling botanical wonderland that is Encino's best-kept secret. (Listing includes two combined properties. Please view video for full breadth of grounds.) This extraordinary trophy property, once owned by "77Sunset Strip" actor Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and renowned lyricist Bert Kalmar, and recently featured in the Wall Street Journal, is truly BREATHTAKING. Private tours upon request.
