Inside the $78 Million Dollar Bradbury Estate, California

From the realtor listing:

Never before offered for sale, this regal masterpiece in guard-gated Bradbury Estates, sits on a promontory with unparalleled city, canyon and ocean views. The location was ranked by Forbes as one of the most expensive ZIP codes in America. This sprawling compound with multiple structures was magnificently realized after more than 8 years of construction by consummate craftsmen with meticulous attention to detail, using only the finest materials from around the world.

The Bradbury Estate consisting of 7 bedrooms and 10 baths, is made almost entirely of French Limestone exteriors and flooring and features 40 ft. vaulted ceilings, 6 large fireplaces, domes with hand painted frescos, Venetian plaster masterpieces throughout, and additional exquisite details too numerous to list.

The Main House is over 32,000 square feet with 2 Master Suites, a 2 story Library, Chef’s Kitchen with pizza oven, a walk-in butler’s pantry, both walk-in refrigerator and freezer. Additional features in the Main House include a large 3D Theater, 2,000-bottle Wine Cellar, an Oak Paneled Elevator as well as a leather-paneled poker room with dark walnut floors which includes a bar, and built-in humidor.

The detached Guesthouse with full kitchen sits above the 10 car Garage, both totaling 6,700 sq. ft. From the hand-rubbed cherry wood floors to the forged iron custom made chandelier, this private guest retreat offers all amenities a guest could enjoy including the top of the line sound system throughout and elegant custom pool table. On a lower level is the workshop, driver/security room as well as staff quarters that include a bedroom with massive shower.

The 5,716 sq. ft. Pool House comes complete with an expansive kitchen capable of hosting the largest of gatherings, a state of the art Cybex gym with free weights and aerobic machines, a massage room, and a subterranean EPA certified 25 yard shooting range, gun storage room with 2 large safes and suitable security, along with an air conditioned general utility room. The main seating room opens up to the pool deck and features a large wood-burning fireplace and unique hand painted Italian Renaissance inspired Venetian plaster dome above.

The almost 8 acres provide an exquisite setting for the sparkling diamond of a pool, elevated with an infinity-edge, placed center courtyard, with 350,000-gallons; it’s just a few feet short of Olympic length with depths up to 14 feet. Other exterior features include a 15 person Jacuzzi, and a temperature-controlled Trout Pond with a 2 story Waterfall. The 1,000,000-gallon capacity pond is stocked with rainbow trout and mallard ducks; the only one of it’s kind in California. It is adorned with perennials that bloom at various times in the year and drop into the beautiful cliff stone surrounding the entire pond. The water is heated by a custom gravity separator with UV filters, and is chilled for the trout by a 300-ton central cooling plant.
