Though the theme of this website is devoted to a larger use of this property than solely as a single family residence, it is a landmark property with cozy features and warm qualities expected of a single family home.
Estate-sized, however, it has been designed to accommodate the needs of extended-family living with features like a centrally located designer elevator, not some blocky thing hidden away, steam baths and sauna critical to ease of living and the health of select family members. Should you have interest in a larger use as follows, all the better.
This unique property has broad appeal to both persons and organizations in need or want of a sequestered resort-oriented residence for mixed personal and business use.
The Hacienda Heights Estate (1) Whatever your Order or Affiliation, League, Fellowship or Brotherhood, Organization or Business and (2) Whether it be of a Business, Personal, Philosophical or Spiritual nature and (3) If you are central to its organization or function and (4) Need a figure-head property oriented to group meetings, gatherings, social events, worship, retreat or conference of any type and (5) You need parking accommodating many dozens or, even, hundreds of visitors and (6) Need multiple gathering places, galleries, a grand media presentation room and a welcoming multi-cultural presence, then (7) The Hacienda Heights Estate, centrally located in southern California, is the most outstanding, if not only, hilltop property that can meet your needs.
The Grand Entry / Central to all spiritual foundation-facilities like Cathedrals, Mosques, Synagogues, Temples and Shrines; and central to all sectarian foundation-facilities like government edifices, the US Capital Building for example, or the White House, Federal buildings and Court Houses is one defining element setting all apart from virtually every other structure or building: their grand entry and cathedral-door.
I call the grand entry to The Hacienda Heights Estate the five-million dollar door. Whether the door, itself, actually cost that or not is irrelevant, because whatever it cost to manufacture, deliver by semi-truck, and install by crane is only part and parcel to the house that had to be built to accommodate the magnificent work of art that it is.
First impressions are everything. Estate guests, your guests and visitors, will be awed by it in similar fashion to all that visit buildings of similar substance like, maybe, the White House, Windsor Castle or the Vatican. This is a must see and must have to lift, inspire, and lead conference guests for whatever purpose of high-cause or function you seek.
Guest Parking / Essential to any business accommodating people is ample parking. With it a business can succeed, without it, it will likely fail. It’s not common, maybe, for most home buyers to consider visitor parking when buying a home; in spite of that, I see the buyer of this property to be a buyer strongly focused on that need because the highest-and-best use of this property, along with its high-end residence quality and appeal, is its social, worship and business conference potential and orientation.
Inside the securely-gated resident compound there is ample parking for up to a dozen cars not counting the four-car garage. Just below the compound, but still on the lot itself is a privately owned parking lot for up to a couple dozen cars or more. In addition to this, the long curbed-drive up to the property from the gated-entry below provides ample valet-oriented parking for special occasions. Guests could walk up if wanted.
Location / If you were to look at southern California from a sky-high satellite, an area stretching from Coronado Island near the Mexico border to Santa Barbara, and reaching inland from coast to mountains and desert, maybe by using Google Earth, and center your search on Hacienda Heights, you would see that it is located at the virtual epicenter of all you see. What better place to own a United Nations Estate.
