Location, land and privacy – all on the west side of LA.

Listed at $64.5 million, The Ranch is located in the Mandeville Canyon area of ​​Brentwood. It is less than 4 miles from the coast, less than 9 miles from the famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and just 18 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. And yet it feels a world away.

Helping to create that atmosphere are the more than six hectares of grounds with manicured gardens, expansive lawns and even its own walking path.

To enhance the effect, the estate is surrounded by an additional seven acres of open space and the reserves of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

The asking price is comparable to what estates are sold for on the Westside. There have been three non-Malibu sales of $40 million or more west of the 405 Freeway this year, including the $48.7 million sale of Vice Media co-founder Shane Smith’s Santa Monica complex and the purchase of $48.7 million. 65 million from record executive Scooter Braun from a Noah Walker-designed house in Brentwood.

The highest point in Los Angeles this year was a $69 million Bel-Air purchase by singer The Weekend. A sale in Malibu raised $51.65 million.

“These are suddenly serious numbers,” said one of the Ranch’s brokers, David Kramer of Hilton & Hyland. “I don’t think it will be long before you see your first $100 million sale in Brentwood.”

Arched wooden gates open onto a motor track with a centrally laid fountain to the front of the house.

Risers step up to the high double front door, which is sheltered by a balcony. A red tiled roof, ironwork, arched windows and smooth stucco underline the Mediterranean atmosphere.

Designed for entertaining, the townhouse is centered around a two-story formal living room. High ceilings run throughout. The bistro-style dining room can accommodate a dinner of 22 people.

The kitchen and family room open onto a pergola for alfresco dining that overlooks a grassy path lined with melaleuca trees. A wood-panelled office and a media room include living areas.

The six bedrooms and eight bathrooms have a primary retreat with a sitting room, marble bathroom and double closets.

Upstairs is a games room, sitting room and gym.

The basement is equipped with a safe door, flex or meeting room, state-of-the-art technology and a security system.

A pool and cabana are set off a long terrace accessed through a row of arched French doors on one side of the house. On the other side of the site is a floodlit tennis court the size of a championship.

The walking path leads to a pergola to enjoy distant views. Among the plantings are rosemary, lavender and olive trees.

There is a garage for three cars and parking for 16 vehicles.

An orchard with more than 20 varieties of fruit trees, vegetable and herb gardens and solitary trees complete the site.

The Ranch, at 13058 Rivers Road, Los Angeles, is listed at: David Kramer, Drew Fenton and Jeff Hyland from Hilton & Hyland.
