Trophy Properties: Los Angeles



For the wealthiest connoisseurs in Los Angeles, living lavishly is a part of everyday life. Yet living such a decadent lifestyle in a world-class equestrian facility, located just outside of Beverly Hills, is sure to take one to the inexplicable world of “La-La” land.

Hummingbird Nest Ranch, an impressive “green” facility nestled on a high natural shelf and surrounded by beautiful sandstone outcroppings and thousands of acres of untouched parkland, is one of the largest privately owned ranches in the area, consisting of five parcels and 123 acres of prime real estate.

Located in the gorgeous Simi Valley, California, the estate is 42 miles northwest of Los Angeles, standing primarily as a residential community consisting of 20 city parks, five county parks, six golf courses, nature and hiking trails, and beautiful picnic and camping areas. There is even a helipad literally fit for the president making travel to and from the ranch extremely convenient.

And while boasting a fine reputation, the location is consistently rated as one of the safest cities in the United States. The views from the property are spectacular, accumulating a manifestation of gorgeous, enormous rock formations, surrounding hills, distant mountains, and three trail parks that will make anyone move from their couches and into the marvelous wonders of the forest.

If this isn’t world class enough, enter into the main house, also known as the “Bonanza House,” designed by architect Richardson Robertson. With beautiful tile details, heavy iron chandeliers and rustic wood beams, this house is massive yet still exudes a certain coziness and Moroccan atmosphere.

There are also six large detached guesthouses, 10 staff houses, a pool, a spa, and substantial equestrian facilities located by this 12,500-square-foot Mission Revival-style mansion. Without a doubt, this estate offers luxury and comfort at its optimum. Also onsite is a 20,000-square-foot barn with 37 individually heated stalls and a veterinary clinic, a 7,000-square-foot Quarantine barn, and a 3,700-square-foot Mare barn-horses not included.
