Isaac Shepher — best known for the California-based Life Alert emergency-response company he and his longtime wife Miri founded in the late 1980s, which is famous for that catchy slogan: “Help! I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” — has picked up a swanky mansion in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. Records show the Israeli couple paid just under $15.8 million for the property, which is sited in the guard-gated enclave of Hidden Hills.
Described in the listing as “French modern” in style, the 2.3-acre estate rests atop a promontory, on a quiet cul-de-sac where nearby neighbors include the likes of Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union, Lil Wayne and L.A. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who just so happens to own the house right next door.
Inside, six bedrooms and seven baths are filtered across almost 11,000 square feet of single-level living space adorned throughout with soaring ceilings, white oak floors, custom cabinetry, skylights, high-tech sound and security systems, and a glass-tiled fountain out front. Walls of glass also offer sweeping canyon and hillside views.
Newly built in 2015, the ornate stucco and brick structure features glitzy amenities ranging from a plush 14-seat movie theater and game/billiard room with wet bar to a mirrored gym. Other highlights include a gourmet kitchen outfitted with high-end stainless appliances, an eat-in peninsula and a breakfast nook, which opens a fireside family room displaying a bespoke entertainment center, plus a formal dining room and an office/study.
All six of the bedrooms are ensuite, including a sumptuous master retreat sporting dual walk-in closets, as well as a luxe bath equipped with a soaking tub and glass-encased shower. Outdoors, the manicured grounds host a 51-foot infinity pool and spa, and over 1,500 square feet of covered patios ideal for al fresco entertaining with a fireplace and barbecue center. There’s also an oversized garage with room for six vehicles.
