A 235-acre Malibu, California wine estate has just been listed for $59.5 million. Owned by George I. Rosenthal, chairman of Raleigh Enterprise, the estate includes two swimming pools, horse stables, two guesthouses and 25 acres of hillside vineyards.
George I. Rosenthal, chairman of Raleigh Enterprise, a company that owns and operates commercial real estate, hotels, movie and TV studio complexes, began assembling the Rosenthal Wine Estate at the beginning of 1977.
“It’s been a great joy in my life but it’s time to take on other things,” said Rosenthal.
The 235-acre wine estate features a 12,000-square-foot hacienda-style main residence with two swimming pools, horse stables, two guesthouses (one with an additional pool), 25 acres of hillside vineyards, a wine-tasting room, banquet room and office. There are also eight bedroom suites, which include separate staff quarters, nine bathrooms, outdoor dining areas, a gym and a 6-car garage. The vineyard is fully operational and is located just 20 miles from Santa Monica and five minutes from the beach.
Architect Louis Angelikis designed the estate for the Rosenthal family. It was originally built as a meticulous homage to the Mexican hacienda tradition, yet contemporized for modern living.
Rosenthal’s other 90-acre Aspen, Colorado property, known as Jigsaw Ranch, is also on the market in two separate parcels, one for $36 million and one for $22 million.
