RISMEDIA, November 20, 2009—Situated on its own mountaintop overlooking the canyon, this sprawling 37-acre Rocky Oaks Estate in California includes a brand new, 9,000-square-foot residence and award-winning vineyards of merlot, cabernet, pinot noir and syrah grapes used by Malibu Rocky Oaks Winery.
The exterior of the Tuscan-inspired home features imported French limestone and Baja Redlands terra cotta tiles that, sited at the top of a lush hillside and surrounded by terraced vineyards and fruit orchards, truly transport visitors to Italy. Approaching via a long, gated driveway and large motor court provides a sense of calm and privacy.
Inside, the opulent great room—with an astonishing 32-foot high ceiling and an open connection to the airy gourmet kitchen—is an ideal setting for intimate get-togethers or lavish bashes. Arched windows wholly capture the light and sights of the surrounding valleys and ocean. Five fireplaces, tongue and groove and exposed beam ceilings, and custom features in marble, granite, walnut, copper, and Venetian plaster provide both architectural interest and touches of extravagance.
Out on the 5,000-square-foot Egyptian limestone deck—which surrounds an exquisite infinity pool, spa and loggia—the refined indoor setting is brought into the open air.
Expected to be completed in April 2010, the five-bedroom, five-bath house will include luxuries throughout, including a high-tech media room, observation deck to best capture the panorama, wine tasting room and barrel storage, and elevator to move easily between both levels. The property also includes additional pads for a guest house, a guard house and a possible helipad.
The estate was designed by respected Montecito-based architect Bob Easton, whose grand Mediterranean and Spanish-style homes can be found in the most desirable areas of California.
