Formerly known as “Neverland Ranch,” the legendary “Sycamore Valley Ranch” has been reintroduced to the market for $67 million, according to press materials.
Renamed for the abundant sycamore trees that surround it, the estate, totaling approximately 2,700 acres, in Los Olivos in California’s Santa Ynez Valley is newly listed by Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
On the border of Los Padres National Forest, this French Normandy-style residence, which was once owned by Michael Jackson, is situated on a 4-acre lake nearby beautifully manicured gardens, a lagoon-style pool, a movie theater and dance studio, barns, a tennis court, a tennis pavilion and pool house, three guest homes, staff facilities, corrals, and a five-bay garage.
The 12,598-square-foot main residence was designed by architect Robert Altevers in 1982 with exposed timber beams, brick and stonework, and 18th century French oak parquet flooring sourced from two chateaus in France.
On the first floor, the master wing features a private loft, two master bathrooms, two walk-in cedar-lined closets, and a private outdoor garden.
The property has a total of 16 bedrooms and 29 bathrooms.
Located in an approximately 5,500-square-foot building, the 50-seat movie theater and studio has a theater-grade projection and sound system, a private viewing balcony, and a stage with trap doors.
A Disney-style train station features a kitchenette, loft, and two fireplaces.
The red barn was originally built for Clydesdales, and the property is ideally suited for equestrian residents.
Outside, there is also an approximately 1,900-square-foot private fire station and administration building with three restrooms and a shower.
“There is no finer estate value available in the United States today––a spectacular lifestyle in every respect,” says Rey of the property.
The listing at 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road was previously held by Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland.
