Top Property: Mediterranean estate in Granada Hills

A Mediterranean estate is one way to describe this pillared property in Granada Hills. Then, there’s Compass’ Levik Stephan’s approach.

When asked how to best put this property into words, Stephan answers, “You don’t; you just take it in.”

12009 Longacre Avenue offers more than enough to take in. First of all, it is an acre with a 2,000-square feet pool house and the home itself, with its soaring height and elegant archways, covers 10,000-square feet.

Falling from the entryway’s starburst ceiling, a 14-foot long crystal chandelier that sets the stage for more sparkling light fixtures throughout the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home.

A spiraled floating staircase leads to most of the home’s bedrooms, including the master suite that includes a living/lounge space and covered balcony that overlooks the lush backyard.

The kitchen is gourmet and shares its space with a comfortable living room.  

Amenities include a movie theater outfitted in suede and outside, a sport court, putting green, and plush pool that I just couldn’t resist.

Asking price for Levik’s lavish listing: $11,495,000.
