Actress and film producer Hilary Swank has listed her Pacific Palisades compound for sale at $10.5 million.
The walled and gated bluff property on L.A.’s Westside takes in ocean vistas.
The Hacienda-style residence has a high-end hotel vibe with outdoor lounges, verandas and en-suite bedrooms with private balconies.
“This property has the feel and setting of being on a romantic vacation with a classic resort-like feel,” says listing agent Zach Goldsmith of Hilton & Hyland. “From the moment you enter the gates you feel like you stepped out of Los Angeles and into the Biltmore in Santa Barbara.”
Built in 1928, the main house was restored by architect Marc Appleton with attention to detail. Original pavers, colorful Spanish tile risers, wood floors and hand-painted wood beamed ceilings maintain the home’s character. “Secret Prohibition-era compartments are hidden throughout,” Goldsmith says.
The step-down living room features built-in bookshelves, a fireplace and French doors that open to a terrace looking toward the water.
The open-plan kitchen features hand-painted beam ceilings, a large center island, a walk-in pantry, a desk area and a laundry room. An ocean-view breakfast room opens to a covered veranda.
There are both indoor and outdoor dining rooms. A pitched beam ceiling tops the step-down family room.
The light-filled primary suite includes a sitting area with a fireplace and a private balcony. The bathroom contains a soaking tub, a Juliet balcony and a walk-in closet.
Three additional bedroom suites complete the upper level.
The home’s garden level has a guest suite, a gym, a living room with a wet bar and concession stand, a home theater and a wine cellar that can double as a cigar lounge. The cellar has a padded leather wall and two wine walls.
The more than one-third acre of grounds include a detached guest bungalow/office, a two-car garage, a gated motor court, an expansive lawn and terraced organic fruit and vegetable gardens.
The swimming pool and spa area has an ocean-view fire pit, a cabana with indoor and outdoor kitchens, a pool bathroom and an outdoor shower. There are a total of six bedrooms and seven bathrooms on the property.
The compound, at 439 Pasaeo Miramar, Pacific Palisades, is slightly more than 17 miles from Los Angeles International Airport.
The actress, who won Academy Awards for her leading roles in “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” has relocated to Colorado.
