The 51,000 square-foot Rolling Hills mansion, known as Hacienda de la Paz, is back on the market for a staggering $53 million.
Designed by famed architect Rafael Manzano Martos and offered for sale by frozen foods magnate John Blazevich, the hacienda-style home is situated on seven-and-a-half acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In addition to its stunning views and sprawling manicured grounds, it also comes complete with an 18th century neoclassical ballroom, an orchard with over 24 varieties of fruit and nut trees and not one but two full-size tennis courts built to professional specs.
We always love when a property is so extravagant and unique that we learn new words from the listing description. In this case the word of the day is “hamam.” A “hamam” is “the Turkish variant of the Roman bath, steambath, sauna or Russian banya, distinguished by a focus on water, as distinct from ambient steam” according to Wikipedia.
The 10,000 square-foot hamam, along with the five-story tennis court and epic wine cellar are all, that’s right, underground. At least the new owner’s tennis matches will not be interrupted by L.A.’s historically wet winter season this year.
