The last vast compound site in Beverly Hills

In Benedict Canyon, minutes from Rodeo Drive and behind a guarded gate, an incomparable equestrian dream unfolds across sixteen magnificent acres. Here, miles of riding trails meander through magical woodlands, winding back home to five deluxe stables and two horse rings. A 20,000 square foot main house, now being freshly reinvisioned, is invisible from the rest of the compound — accessed via a second redwood gate that opens on a curving access road. The enviable compound has just been listed for $85 million by Aaron Kirman, President of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of Beverly Hills-based John Aaroe Group.

 Superstar Cher was the first to fall in love with this magical spot, building an estate on four acres here in the 1970s and later selling it to comedian Eddie Murphy.

In the late ‘90s, visionary new owners bought the property, and their grand plans began to take shape. They acquired all four surrounding land parcels, then began enhancing the whole. They created the ultimate equestrian environment with a group of magnificent stables; a pair of pristine, white-graveled riding rings; and an enchanting network of meandering hiking and riding trails. They also added two expansive guest/staff houses, a tennis court with seating area, lavishly landscaped grounds, and more.

In the stunning 7,000-square-foot Moroccan guest house, soaring arched windows prove to be walk-through doorways to the landscape beyond. Moroccan tiles, hand-carved wooden doors and coffered ceilings create a richly inviting ambience. Amenities here include two fireplaces; a full dining room; two full kitchens; six baths; a lavish downstairs master retreat and two upstairs bedroom suites; a spa with Jacuzzi, dry sauna and salon sink; and a broad, open patio overlooking the lawns.

The stable building is fronted by a picturesque view loggia with rustic beamed ceiling and lanterns. Its stable house holds a living room, two bedrooms, two baths, a fireplace and a safe room.

Sequestered in the canyon just moments from the Beverly Hills Hotel, this vast treasure is part rustic, part refined … and wholly without equal.
