This Italian-style estate in Shady Canyon, Irvine, Calif., is truly one-of-a-kind. Owned by a former congressman, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home boasts a secluded speakeasy and a two-car “bat cave” with a lift.
Listed for the very first time, the villa—dubbed “La Masseria”—was a design collaboration between famed architect Robert Sinclair and interior designer Mark Cutler. In addition to the bat cave, the home features imported stone, massive rustic beams, handcrafted Honduran mahogany windows and French doors imported from Italy.
Nestled next to a 25,000-acre nature preserve, this private home is ideal for entertaining. Outside, you can find a pool, spa, charcoal burning grill with a wrap-around bar and a mini putting green.
Live like a European Bruce Wayne in this enchanted villa.
