Property Spotlight: Beverly Hills 90210

By Ely Grinfield

Located in the coveted 90210 zip code, this approximate 11-acre plot located in Beverly Hills majestically overlooks Catalina Island, boasting a near 270 degree viewing angle, it is waiting for the right investor to turn it from an untamed hillside into the future homes of world movers.

What sets this monolith of a mountain apart from any other on the market, aside from its prestigious and breathtaking setting, is that it covers two separate parcels, making it ideal for any mega-scale developments. The location screams magnificence, with a hilly and vibrant terrain that offers immediate privacy without losing accessibility.

Award-winning architects have been engaged to draft up visions for the land and it can go to anyone, for the right price. Adjacent properties in Beverly Park and Bella Vista offer similar perks and have proven to be great areas for luxury cul-de-sacs or gated communities.

And if you were moving to Beverly Hills, this asset would be the ideal setting for a romantic and private mansion, with the typical temperate California climate that attracts suitors from around the world.

“I’m so glad I’m here, and that feeling is just one of the many attractions of Southern California,” says Endre Barath, Jr., Beverly Hills Estate Realtor. “All you have to do is look at pictures and we’d tell you that they were taken in the middle of winter.”

Yes, even in the winter months, Beverly Hills serves as the breezy and bumping playground for high-rollers and affluent movers alike.

For those who have begun envisioning their own manor atop this spot, act soon. After all, fortune favors the bold.

Featured Property: Palm Springs, California

"Houston South"

Skillfully executed by superior craftsmen, this extraordinary 11,000+ square foot mansion in the celebrity-laden Old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs required three years to construct. Liberal use of the finest materials imported from a variety of countries is evident throughout this grand residence. It boasts features such as a state of the art Crestron automation system for controlling virtually everything: lighting, security, window coverings, pool/spa, gates/access and numerous water features.

Soaring ceilings, custom millwork and walk in closets characterize the master suite, which features a fully automated "dry cleaner" style conveyor system. A climate controlled wine storage room, abundant closet/storage, one bedroom staff apartment with kitchen, two one-bedroom guest houses and a four-car air conditioned garage accessed by a gated and protected motor court are also found.

The inclusion of staff kitchen and bathrooms, a gardener’s building, a hotel quality generator with fuel storage and a 2,000-gallon water storage tank with filtration system round out the unique features of this one of a kind masterpiece.

Special embellishments include custom wall and window coverings, full-height custom wood interior doors, barrel ceilings, expertly selected marble, stone and granite, fabulous indoor and exterior entertaining bars and a grilling station. Gallery style corridors offer ample display cases and shelves for fine art, and pocketing full-height glass sliders open the indoors to the outdoors for seamless entertaining.

 

Sited on 1.5 acres of lush gardens, this is a remarkable venue perfect for entertaining family and friends as well as dignitaries and socialites. The property has been the site of numerous formal dinner parties for up to 400 guests, and festive cocktail soirees for 600. An amazing replica of a famous Italian fountain with a vast greenbelt is found on the western section of the property, and a resort quality swimmer's pool and spa are adjacent to the Master suite, as is a Koi pond surrounded by Taihu rock from Lake Tai, China. The amazing architecture is enhanced by copper clad fascia and barrel roof. Offered at $11,000,000.

Fly-In Communities: Elk River, North Carolina

Set high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, at an average elevation of over 4000 feet, is the Elk River Club, the ultimate in exclusive mountain community living.

“For those with an active lifestyle, the Elk River Club has a lot to offer,” says Rick Foster of Elk River Realty. “Developed by brothers Harry and Spencer Robbins in the 1980's, the club is North Carolina’s first Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, and ranks among the top 10 best golf courses in the state. In addition to outstanding golf, we have an incredible mountain top Saddle club and Equestrian center, miles of tree lined riding and hiking trails, catch and release trout fishing, and a great tennis facility. We've recently expanded our Swimming, Fitness and Wellness Center to include everything from state of the art Nautilus exercise equipment to Pilates and yoga.”

While a range of activities abound in the Elk River Club, one special amenity that really sets the community apart is its on-site jetport.

The Elk River Club has the only private jetport in the area, with its own 4,600 foot runway. For those with access to corporate or private aircraft, or who choose to take advantage of the community’s charter arrangement, getting to and from Elk River is a breeze.

Rick and his team are real estate specialists of the Elk River Club, and deal exclusively with properties in the community. Residential options at Elk River range from villas and townhomes, to spacious golf cottages to magnificent mountain top estate homes. Homes in the community share a common architectural theme, and incorporate native materials such as cedar, popular bark, and hand-cut field stone into their construction.

With a unique collection of amenities, a true community feeling and ideal weather for both summer residents and those who like the change of seasons, it would be hard to imagine an area that compares to the Elk River Club.

“Elk River provides a place with every opportunity to bring together those who matter most, and create memories that last a lifetime", says Rick. “No matter what you envision your family's ideal mountain community to be, you will find it at Elk River.”
