About three years ago, billionaire In-N-Out Burger heiress Lynsi Snyder first attempted to sell her sprawling 4.2-acre Bradbury Estates compound for $19.7 million. After long languishing on the market with no takers, the home has resurfaced at a significantly reduced price of $16.8 million. The president of the beloved West Coast burger chain — founded by her grandparents Harry and Esther Snyder in 1948 — purchased the property in August 2012 from retired pro baseball superstar Adrián Beltré and his wife Sandra for $17.4 million in cash; at the time, it was one of the priciest San Gabriel Valley home sales ever recorded.
Custom built by local luxury developer Mur-Sol Construction in 2010, the Mediterranean-inspired estate is a study in opulence — with 11 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and numerous over-the-top amenities. It’s also extremely secure, naturally, in keeping with the billionaire’s penchant for reclusiveness, complete with a double-gated locale on Old Ranch Road in one of the Los Angeles area’s most exclusive 24-hour, guard-gated communities that’s fully surrounded by security cameras and patrolled by armed guards.
The arrival to the estate’s Mediterranean-style main manse is marked by a circular vehicle court sporting manicured gardens, a water fountain and grand entrance portico. Inside, the residence features 18,000-plus square feet of living space on two levels punctuated by soaring ceilings, an elevator, and seamless indoor-outdoor environs. Among the highlights: a chef’s gourmet kitchen with dual islands, custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances and a separate prep/wok kitchen, as well as a sumptuous master retreat outfitted with a separate fireside sitting room, extravagant bathroom with marble-clad soaking tub, a duo of large walk-in closets, office and hair salon.
About those lavish amenities: Think a temperature-controlled wine cellar and tasting room, billiard/game room with wet bar, plush 18-seat movie theater and fitness center. And, outdoors, the resort-inspired backyard is anchored by an infinity-edge pool and massive chandelier-topped cabana with a dining area and a full outdoor kitchen, separate tennis and basketball courts, and a two-hole turf golf course with sand traps and a putting green.
Rounding out this offering is an approximately 3,400-square-foot stand-alone recreation center that can be used as a ballroom, dance studio or batting cage, along with a 2,500-square-foot guesthouse boasting three bedrooms, two baths and its own two-car garage.
Snyder, whose In-N-Out brand had its best sales year ever in 2020 — aided by the COVID-19 pandemic that shuttered many non-drive-through restaurants — still maintains other residential holdings, including a massive ranch tucked into a remote corner of Northern California’s ruggedly beautiful Shasta County area. She also still holds the deed to a 2,000-square-foot cottage in her native Glendora, the final residence of her grandmother Esther Snyder, who died in 2006.
