Spanish-Style “Work of Art”

Overlooking the city of Los Angeles at the crest of Palos Verdes Peninsula is Hacienda de la Paz— a 51,000-square-foot home in Rolling Hills, CA. As the seller envisioned a Spanish hacienda-style home, this estate is the only residence in the Americas designed by award-winning Spanish architect Rafael Manzano Martos.

The 7.4-acre compound, which took 17 years to build, is comprised of nine bedrooms; 25 bathrooms; a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen; a 10th century, 10,000-square-foot Moorish hamam spa; indoor pool, grand ballroom; indoor tennis court; Renaissance inspired, hand painted chapel; and an English library styled after a 19th century gentleman’s club with flooring crafted from 800-year-old river recovered logs; a 15,000-square-foot, 18th-century neoclassical ballroom; gym; yoga room; wine cellar and more catering facilities. Interior details include hand crafted interlocking ceilings; plush carpets; custom draperies and furnishings; and hand-picked building materials from Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Morocco.

Outdoor luxuries include Moorish gardens and fountains; groves of olive trees; a bocce court; red clay tennis court; infinity edge pool with jetliner views of Los Angeles; a guesthouse with maid and staff quarters; and equestrian and hiking trails. Additionally, there is a six-car garage and motor court with hand crafted limestone driveways.

Originally listed at $53 million, the home will sell Without Reserve in cooperation with Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate and Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group. The live, onsite auction will take place July 26th.
