Space may be at a premium in Southern California, but if you’re able to secure a spot in the lavish community of Hidden Valley, there’s land aplenty.
Each lot in the neighborhood, tucked into the mountains of Thousand Oaks, spans at least 20 acres, and the homes that inhabit them often resemble castles. French Chateaus, English country estates and Mediterranean mansions all reside in Hidden Valley, and their spacious grounds boast box gardens, swimming pools and even polo fields.
A particularly upscale enclave in the area is White Stallion Ranch. Originally developed by Sylvester Stallone, the 250-acre community is split into 10 large-lot estates, each centering on a palatial home.
Here’s an idea of what the current market looks like in White Stallion Ranch.
This gated estate is anchored by a Queen Anne-inspired home that opens to a grand two-story entry with a floating staircase and French limestone floors. Highlights in the 10,000-plus-square feet of living space include a wood-paneled billiards room and a theater draped in velvet. Out back, a covered loggia takes in mountain views.
