$4,500,000 | 3 Beds | 4.5 Baths | 3,516 Sq. Ft. | Price/Sq.Ft. $1,280 | 4.51 Acres | Built in 1948

The expansive lot is a one-of-a-kind equestrian ranch that offers wonderful amenities and total tranquility. Located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, in Sylmar but close to Lakeview Terrace, the property is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac with automatic gates that reveal a unique and tucked-away private retreat with plenty of space to live, ride, roam, farm, work, create, and entertain amongst multiple structures and lush, green grounds. All of the structures have been gloriously updated and are in great shape.

We’ll start with the spectacular equestrian areas. They include a fully equipped barn with eleven horse stalls, red brick walkways, a tack room, laundry room and two grooming stalls.

Attached to the stables is a a clubhouse viewing room that is perfectly situated to observe the professionally lighted and mirrored riding arena just outside.

The clubhouse has gorgeous wood beamed ceilings, a full bathroom, and lots of space to enjoy. The clubhouse offers an excellent spot for indoor/outdoor entertaining after a group show in the arena or as a relaxing respite after a long day’s solo ride.

Clubhouse viewing rooms used to be de rigueur but are growing increasingly rare as many of these large-scale Southern California horse properties go by the wayside.

The grounds also include a goat pen with resident goats Cocoa and Caramel.

And two friendly ducks named Baby and Johnny who enjoy lounging under the lush citrus trees on the property.

The property also has two shaded round pens set up against the hillside. Whether in the future Rancho Bizarro is used for individual use or as an income-generating stables to board horses and host riders, there’s an ample amount of acreage to spread out and enjoy.

The primary residence on the property is a charming 1940s California Ranch-style house featuring three bedrooms, and all of it has been totally updated and restored.

From an impressive foyer, the grand living room immediately inspires awe with its lovely hardwood floors, great mid-century brick fireplace, and rustic exposed beams.

The brand new kitchen is sleek and stylish with gorgeous wood beams, playful wallpaper, top-of-the-line appliances, a farm house (what else?) sink, and has amazing views of the grounds.

The jaw-dropping glassed-in atrium makes for an unforgettable dining room. The dining room overlooks the expansive meadows, mature trees, and the large free-form pool.

Beautiful, covered patios and custom-tiled outdoor dining spaces flank the home and create luxurious al fresco spaces for intimate breakfasts or massive evening entertaining.

The glistening pool and rolling green lawn provides a luxurious setting. Notice the several mature trees that provide ample shade throughout the property. Whether you’re planning a romantic picnic or simply to lie back against a tree trunk with a good book, the grounds offer several options whatever your heart desires.

Back inside, the main residence features the three bedrooms and four and a half glorious bathrooms including this beauty which has been reimagined with only the finest materials including Zia tiles.

The primary bedroom suite will simply take your breath away.

There are built-ins, a fireplace, a skylight, a beautiful cedar ceiling, stunning views of the grounds, and French doors that open to the backyard and pool.

And the primary’s en suite bathroom must be seen to be believed. “Dual sinks” doesn’t even begin to describe the enormous tiled vanity.

There’s a sizable walk-in shower and a step-up jacuzzi soaking tub.

Plus a dreamy walk-in closet and dressing room.

Across the lawn from the main residence and the barn is a cute-as-a-button guest cottage, previously used as housing for resident horse trainers and grooms.

The cottage has a full bath and fireplace, as well as an oversized detached garage, and storage space.

Charming as ever, it is the perfect overnight housing option for visiting friends and family.

There is also a large flex space that invites your imagination to serve a multitude of uses: it could easily house an extensive home gym, fully furnished rehearsal space for dance or theater performance, a light-filled art studio, or perhaps another additional dwelling unit.

Rancho Bizzaro is an absolutely indelible part of Hollywood history. Patrick Swayze would be proud of its thoughtful, stylish, and altogether singular restoration.

This historic estate has numerous walking, riding, and hiking opportunities, perfect views of the ridge top, and offers a private, quiet, and rustic quality of life only a short distance from all the best Los Angeles has to offer.
