Home of the Week: Fun and Games in Thousand Oaks

Those summer temperatures are no sweat at this tricked-out estate. The sprawling home in a gated North Ranch community makes a splash with a custom infinity-edge swimming pool complete with dueling water slides, a raised spa and cascading waterfalls.

Inside, grand formal areas give way to fun amenities such as a custom theater and game room. There’s even an indoor basketball court/gymnasium for the future Kobe Bryant-in-training.
