This is one of the finest properties in Orange County - gracing nearly an acre at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on one of the highest view lots in exclusive, guard-gated Shady Canyon. Designed by architect Cecil Carney and built by the renowned Haigh Builders, the ultra-private residence and guest house span more than 12,000 s.f. of tasteful, livable luxury with panoramic views of the Shady Canyon Golf Course, canyons, hillsides and city lights. No expense has been spared, or detail overlooked, in this magnificent legacy estate. This is a property whose wow factor can't be overstated, starting with the private entry courtyard with Koi pond and bridge leading to the impressive main foyer that immediately reveals the home's exceptional views. The 6 bedroom, 6 and 2 half-bath property (including detached guest casita with kitchenette) features spacious, high-ceilinged rooms that open to inviting sheltered outdoor loggias and terraces and to the spectacular grounds beyond. The main residence encompasses 3 levels with an elevator and includes a sublime master suite with views and dual spa baths; the enclave's most impressive chef's kitchen with secondary catering kitchen and wine cellar; and a lower level with theater and maid's quarters (optional gym). The estate's grounds are unparalleled, with expansive lawns, mature landscaping and trees, swimming pool and spa, water features spanned by bridges, and more. Shady Canyon residents also enjoy world-class community amenities.
