This fabulous six bedroom, nine bath Shady Canyon® estate represents the best value in this exclusive enclave. The premier lot affords lovely canyon and city lights views, exceptional privacy and seclusion, and a grand entry set high above the lane below. The private driveway is gated and leads through to the beautiful motor court to the stunning home, featuring the architecture of John Henderson. Inspired by the estates of Santa Barbara’s Montecito enclave, the residence - known as Casa De Serena - is designed with effortlessly elegant everyday living and entertaining in mind, with large- scale rooms that flow seamlessly from one to the next and to the serene outdoor spaces, including an inviting entry fountain courtyard, fruit orchard, herb garden, pool and spa, and outdoor cooking and dining areas.

The interior of this incomparable Shady Canyon home is of the highest artisan quality, with the extensive use of imported Jerusalem limestone and onyx, custom mahogany cabinetry and ceiling paneling, reclaimed wood beams, wide plank distressed walnut floors, hand-carved limestone fireplaces and Venetian plaster.

Welcome guests in all seasons to this entertainer’s paradise, which includes a custom built and engineered theater with leather lounges, oversized game room with a 60-inch flat panel TV, both with entertaining bars. Host a wine dinner in the climate-controlled 2,700 bottle wine cellar, or a gourmet chef in the professional-grade kitchen with Wolf range, large center island and adjoining breakfast room with French doors opening to the tranquil rear grounds and an outdoor stone fireplace. Retreat to the expansive formal living and dining rooms for relaxed evenings with family and friends – or dine alfresco by the pool. The possibilities are endless.

Private spaces include a luxurious master wing and a spacious children’s wing, both conceived with every amenity imaginable. Featuring gorgeous vistas of the surrounding canyons and hills as well as city lights, the master wing showcases a magnificent master bedchamber with inviting fireside sitting area and two view terraces, as well as a sublime spa bath suite with large steam shower with multiple body sprays, deep soaking HydroSpa bathtub, heated limestone floors, towel warming drawer, and dual vanities, dual waterclosets and spacious dressing room.
