A recreation/pool house of about 1,500 square feet includes game areas, nightclub lighting, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.


There’s also a basketball half-court and a solar-heated swimming pool, which has a grotto, a waterfall, a slide, a spa and a swim-up water bar with four seats.

In the main house, the master suite features a balcony for a total of eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 7,530 square feet of living space. The maid’s quarters have a separate entrance.

Views take in the mountains and cityscape.


Ribeiro, 44, gained television notice on the sitcoms “Silver Spoons” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
