Want to live like a President, but don’t want to go through the grind of an election? Buy this Palisades home. Once owned by Ronald Reagan, the 12,000-square-foot California estate is filled with political history.
While the open and airy interior has been remodeled, the home of the late President does feature the original bar from his tenure in Pacific Palisades. The property includes a six-bedroom main house and one-bedroom guest house.
The main home has 180-degree oceans of the San Gabriel Mountains, downtown Los Angeles, and the Pacific Ocean. The grand entrance hall boasts 24-foot ceilings with French oak flooring connecting to the living room, which contains a limestone fireplace. The professional-grade kitchen features an antique wood-beam ceiling and access to an adjoining family room. Amenities in the onetime Reagan residence include a private cinema with cashmere-lined walls and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar.
The Spanish Revival-style stucco residence features another historic remnant of the original property: a shower door. As legend has it, Reagan received the phone call he had won the Presidency while he was in the shower (there’s even a plaque commemorating this on the old door, which has now been transferred to the library bathroom). Elsewhere on the property, you’ll find a courtyard with fountains, a modern pool, and lounge area perfect for entertaining guests. With the outdoor kitchen and wood-burning pizza oven, the backyard is ready for al-fresco dinners.
