Always wanted to own a large house primed for entertaining, especially a shindig-ready one packed with glitzy amenities — a glass-encased wine cellar that holds more than 1,000 bottles and state-of-the-art movie theater that can seat up to 20 guests, for starters? Or an extravagant resort-style backyard revolving around a terraced swimming pool lined with waterfalls? Well, your wish could finally come true; this extravagantly decked-out Bel Air showpiece just popped up for sale, asking a speck under $36 million.
“This house is designed for all lifestyles and occasions,” says spec developer Adrian Rudomin, who purchased the land in 2018 for just over $3.1 million and spent millions more creating the objet d’art in collaboration with his son Diego. “You can have an amazing romantic dinner for two, a fabulous intimate event for 20 to 50 of your best friends, or a grand catered event with 500 or more people. The spaces are carefully designed to provide perfect harmony and enjoyment for all types of gatherings.”
Tucked away behind gates, on a parcel spanning almost three-quarter acres, the contemporary spread was completed this year. Known as “El Canto del Agua” (The Song of the Water), the bespoke property features a main house with eight bedrooms, nine full baths and four half-baths, plus a guest suite with two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths — for a total of 10 bedrooms and 16 baths in 18,500 square feet of open-concept living space.
Among the main-level highlights: a double-height foyer that flows to a vast great room showcased by a striking floating staircase, linear fireplace encased in a floor-to-ceiling stone-slab wall and large expanses of glass spilling outdoors. A family room is equipped with a wet bar crafted from exotic Purple Heart wood and the aforementioned wine cellar, and the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with hand-made Italian cabinetry, commercial-grade appliances, a prep gallery and two oversized islands, one topped with live-edge redwood imported from the Amazon Rainforest.
Upstairs, a sumptuous 2,700-square-foot master retreat comes complete with a two-way fireplace, private patio, drop-down projection screen, sitting room and an office, as well as dual showroom-style closets, and a luxe bath boasting a soaking tub and double rainwater showers. A fitness and wellness gym sporting a Roman-style bath leads out to the backyard oasis, which holds a large infinity-edge pool, hot tub, conversation area with fire-pit and viewing platform spotlighted by a statuesque heirloom cactus. Rounding it all out: a roof deck, wraparound balcony and an attached garage with room for up to five vehicles.
