Feast your eyes on this Pacific Palisades prize! Actress Michelle Pfeiffer’s former Pacific Palisades compound just hit the market for the first time in 20 years! And it could be yours for just under $20 million.
Take a peek around this week’s “What Can I Get?”.
Pacific Palisades Prize With Celebrity History Up For Grabs
Let us begin by saying this Pacific Palisades estate is so exclusive, the current owners wish not to be named. But that won’t deter us from digging up its past!
First off, Pfeiffer isn’t the only celebrity to have lived in the stately seven-bedroom, 10-full-and-one-half-bathroom property. The four-acre estate was originally built in 1935 by stage and film actor, Will Rogers, a native of Fort Worth.
Per the RobbReport, “In LA’s Pacific Palisades, Rogers has an eponymous state park and a beach to commemorate his big personality and presence as well as his love of the outdoors. He died in a plane crash in Alaska in 1935 at age 57. But just before he died, he finished the final details on a sprawling new home just minutes from the Will Rogers State Park.”
That home being 1001 Rivas Canyon Road! In fact, just minutes from this exquisite and masterfully hidden compound is Will Rogers State Beach. It’s a fixture of the Pacific Palisades lifestyle. And the location is a haven for celebrities and wealthy executives alike. The privacy and locale between the Santa Monica Mountains and Pacific Ocean continues to draw the affluent LA set.
Pacific Palisades Compound Features Interiors By Michael S. Smith Of White House Fame
In 2001, Pfeiffer and David E. Kelley sold the mansion to the current owners and it has since seen several upgrades. Among these are a sophisticated revamp and expansion by renowned interior designer Michael S. Smith – the designer behind The White House interiors when The Obamas were in office.
The sprawling Pacific Palisades stunner features a warm and inviting main house, a sparkling pool and pool house, staff house, and original horse stables that are now converted into a fitness center.
There is also a brand new two-story guest house with luxurious appointments and incredible park-like grounds.
Designer Touches Abound Inside And Out
Step inside the 6,250-square-foot main house and you’ll quickly find it has been meticulously preserved and restored. For the chef, a country-style kitchen affords top-of-the-line built-in appliances, ample cabinetry, expansive center island, and rustic beams.
We love the multiple living areas, which are light and airy with plenty of space for showcasing art. Throughout, there is also a focus on bringing the outdoors in. And just outside, you’ll enjoy a secluded pool and outdoor fire pit. It’s the type of place you’ll never want to leave – ideal for LA buyers that are still in pandemic-mode.
Park-Like Grounds, Plus A Pool And Luxurious Guest House Round Out The Offering
Additional highlights include an elegant formal dining room wrapped in a rich cherry-hued custom wall-covering, as well as a generous en-suite master with access to a private courtyard.
Lastly, and perhaps most impressive of all, are the grounds. According to the listing it’s “an ultra-private four-acre compound set on a private cul-de-sac where neighbors ride their horses down the street.”
Snagging this beauty means owning a piece of Hollywood history. But the enchanting pathways, gardens, and intimate entertaining areas don’t hurt either.
Aaron Kirman, Liz Gottainer, and Jeeb O’Reilly of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass have listed 1001 Rivas Canyon Road, Pacific Palisades, California for $19.999 million.
