An opulent estate set on four acres at the top of Nellie Gail Ranch is for sale at $9.3 million.
The home’s private, rolling hills include a swimming pool, spa and guest house, a tennis court and a meditation pool with a waterfall and reflection garden. All are lighted.
Some 250 mature trees and thousands of varieties of roses bloom on the property, the listing agents say, with the landscaping alone having cost $2 million. A barn has access to the community’s horse trails.
The estate, with expansive views and more than 8,000-square feet of living space, is the priciest home on the market in Laguna Hill’s Nellie Gail Ranch.
Seller Adolf Ohmann is the retired owner of Commonwealth Volkswagen and Commonwealth Audi. He built the home at 26501 Silver Saddle Lane from the ground up after he bought the property in 2004, said Carole Meikle of Engel & Volkers, who is co-listing the estate with colleague Anne Bergman.
The six-bedroom main house includes a ground-floor master suite with carvings on the ceilings and a large, ornately designed shower with a steam room and sauna, as well as an outdoor spa just off the bedroom. The kitchen has European appliances, a seating area and glass floor tile inlays. The home also boasts gleaming marble floors, Austrian wrought-iron work, five hand-carved fireplaces, and a library surrounded in mahogany.
A movie room includes lounge-style seating and a professional poker table. Another room was designed especially for gift wrapping.
Themed bedrooms include a rose room, safari room and Laguna room with a mural depicting Laguna Beach in the 1920s.
Ohmann is selling the house furnished, though he’s keeping most of his private art collection, Meikle said.
The agent said Ohmann, whose wife died in recent years, would like to move closer to friends by the coast.
