14209 Evans Road closed this week at $12,900,000 with Fran Flanagan Properties. This property was built in 1982 as part of the compound owned by the former governer Arnold Schwartzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver. It was then sold to Susan Loggans and her husband, Denis Watson, the professional golfer. It is such a good property in so many ways. The 2.5 acres on which it sits are a virtual paradise for a large family with a full tennis court, pool, and spa area with a full, outdoor kitchen. There’s also a beautiful, big, flat lawn with mature trees, a stream, aviaries, paths, and even a pond.
The house itself has a family bedroom wing with five bedrooms, a two bedroom guest suite, a master suite with his and her baths and closets, a maid’s room, library, gigantic living room, dining room, family room, and a wonderful eat-in kitchen. There’s also a separate guest suite down at the tennis court which could be a gym or screening room. The landscaping is beautiful with a fruit tree orchard and several flowering trees that frame the property so graciously.
The property is set behind massive wooden gates. The approach is off a private road, across a bridge over a stream…the ultimate in peace and privacy.
Interestingly, the property had been offered for sale for four years, starting at $26,000,000. I represented the buyer and her terrific family.
