When you have had a career as successful as that of actress Michelle Pfeiffer, you can afford to choose the house of your dreams and live in a property that contains many outstanding features. In 2004, Pfeiffer and her husband David E. Kelley purchased a woodside estate just south of San Francisco in California for $12 million. They have now put this property on the market for $29.5 million and the specifications of this house highlight just what a delightful and desirable this property is, so it will no doubt get snapped up by a wealthy buyer soon.
The main house has an expensive living space covering 6,379 square feet. This is decorated and furnished in a traditional manner that perfectly matches the Spanish-style exterior of the property. The open-plan living space is over two levels. The lower level is used as a sitting room which features a huge fireplace and wooden floors, partially covered with a large rug. The seating is arranged around the fireplace in such a way that the room looks comfortable and inviting. The large floor-to-ceiling windows and glass door panels make the room look light and spacious.
The lower parts of the wall are painted panels with a light-colored patterned water on the upper sections of the wall. Its walls feature traditional-style artworks and personal photographs. Pfeiffer has also accessorized the room with two decorative leather trunks of different sizes. This section of the house also features a small dining set and a full-sized snooker table. The raised level of the living space is a second sitting room that features a large flat-screen television and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The décor and flooring from the main sitting room continue into this space.
The spacious main house in this estate also boasts four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and a large kitchen. Each of these rooms has doors opening out onto the garden or the terrace. The master bedroom suite includes its own sitting room, two walk-in closets, and a private rooftop deck. The suite’s bathroom is just as luxurious with a double steam shower and a marble bath.
Although there are a further three bedrooms in this property that could easily be used for guests rooms if you wished, you wouldn’t need to worry about your guests using them if they came to visit as there is plenty of other accommodation on offer that is separate to the main house. These include three studio apartments and a guesthouse. Other buildings that are separate to the house include a gym and an office.
If you think the inside of this property, then the outside space is equally, if not more, stunning. This house is set in 8.67 acres of grounds that are separated into different spaces, with some offering an area for relaxation and other sections set up for a variety of outdoor pursuits.
The manicured gardens are a visual delight with water features and trees, while the courtyard is a serene and tranquil space. The formal terraced area features a fireplace and a cedar hot tub, making this the perfect place for entertaining at any time of the year.
One of the most interesting features of the garden is the octagonal barn which houses ten stables and is constructed around a small courtyard with a tree. This is surrounded by meadows that are ideal for enjoying equine pursuits.
Riding is not the only outdoor activity you can enjoy at this house as there is a fantastic array of activities available to enjoy in the grounds. There is a gated full-sized pool, a child’s paddling pool, a spa, and tennis courts. The garden also has an area that is a gardening lover’s dream. It features natural grasses, an apple orchard, and vegetable beds for those who are interested in growing their own produce.
This outstanding property is not the only one that is currently being sold by Michelle Pfeiffer and her husband. It is rumored that they are also selling a waterfront property in British Columbia that is only accessible by boat. According to these reports, this property is set in 340 acers of grounds and is one the market for $28.8 million. If Pfeiffer sells both these properties for their asking price, then she will see a significant rise in her bank balance.
