Designed by award winning and world renowned classical Spanish architect, Rafael Manzano Martos, in cooperation with architect Anthony Inferrera; all interiors by Bruno and Manuel Gavira and decorative painting by Nicholas Luca de Tena.
Seventeen years in the making and built to exacting standards by Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Moroccan artisans and craftsmen; recruited explicitly for this project.
Unimaginable panoramic views encompassing the beaches, the West Side, the Hollywood Hills, downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains.
Located in one of the only guard gated cities in America, with security further enhanced by the Hacienda’s own gated and secured perimeter, featuring multiple surveillance cameras and breach sensors.
Rolling Hills is the perfect environment to raise a family and is known for outstanding private and public schools, the area offers the best of both worlds for children, marrying Los Angeles’ urban appeal with the healthy coastal lifestyle of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
Rolling Hills is quintessentially Los Angeles’ preeminent equestrian community, boasting direct access to 57 miles of riding trails and the Peninsula is home to the annual Portuguese Bend National Horse Show.
Conveniently close to LAX and private airports, minutes from numerous beaches and just a short boat ride away from Catalina Island.
Tranquil and aromatic manicured grounds including jetliner views, aligned marble fountains, rose gardens, vegetable gardens, a wide selection of fragrant herbs and wild flowers. The orchards boast twenty four varieties of fruit and nut trees.
Authentic tribute to Spanish and Moorish architectural influences, such as The Alhambra, are found in every detail; including magnificent frescoes, fountains, inlayed pavings, wood ceilings and arches.
The Hamam (Moorish-style spa and baths) is opulently appointed with hand crafted ceilings, imported marble, hand-carved sandstone, 24 carat gold Venetian tiling and an indoor pool; all providing a spa experience to rival any of the world’s finest resorts.
One of Southern California’s largest and well-equipped private ballrooms features built-in catering facilities, an independent 400 amp power circuit with separate sound and lighting control rooms fit to enhance any professional performance. The infrastructure is conveniently concealed within the walls and ideal for hosting fundraisers and other exclusive events; accommodating a sit-down dinner for up to 350 guests, a dance floor and a 30-piece orchestra. When it is not utilized as a grand ballroom, this extraordinary space doubles as an indoor tennis court.
Both the outdoor infinity edged pool and the red clay tennis court offer outstanding panoramic ocean, mountain and city views.
