Conrad Metz of Prudential California Realty has listed a palatial estate with commanding views of the Pacific Ocean and Pelican Hill Golf Course, for $10,888,000. With elegant traditional architecture and ornate details including plaster moldings and 24 carat gold trim accents, the home evokes a forgotten world of sophistication and style.
Tucked away in the guard-gated community of Pelican Hill, the estate offers privacy, hand woven carpets and travertine floors. The formal zones are balanced by casual spaces for everyday life, such as a 15-seat movie theatre and a conservatory with floor-to-ceiling glass.
An elevator provides convenient access to the approximately 10,785 square foot interior, which includes five bedrooms and a sunny open kitchen with distinctive custom cabinetry. The family room flows naturally onto a large covered patio with views of the pool and spa, a fireplace and a colonnade.
Sited on a prime hilltop lot with approximately 22,100 square feet, the residence features award-winning English gardens and numerous covered loggias. The front courtyard includes a fountain, and there is a subterranean garage with space for eight vehicles.
