5 beds • 5 baths • 4,678 sq ft • Offered at $4,500,000

The ultimate luxury is immersion: the sense that nothing exists aside from one’s immediate surroundings.

A true luxury home envelopes you so completely with opulence that you can forget the outside world and instead escape to one tailored to you.

And the address of this escape is 12 Santa Cruz.

Beautifully situated on a lushly-landscaped 0.

44-acre lot in picturesque Rolling Hills Estates, this 4,678 SF stunner wows from the moment you step through French doors into the home’s entry hall with double-height ceiling.

To your right you’ll discover a sunken, light-filled living room with hardwood floors below, a soaring ceiling above and an atmospheric fireplace to warm up cool Fall evenings.

A gorgeous archway reveals a spacious dining room with showcase chandelier, and beyond lies the home’s heart: its dream kitchen.

Staggering in sheer scale and boasting twin sinks, ovens and microwaves, this culinary nirvana with central island and bar seating is hallmarked by an arched niche with custom mosaic that houses a Thermador Professional range and grill.

An adjacent breakfast nook overlooks the resort-like backyard, and the L-shaped family room with fireplace and tray ceiling is the perfect spot for casual – and large scale – entertaining.

A breathtaking curved staircase leads you an upstairs landing with commanding views of the entry hall.

Nearby, the jaw-dropping owner’s enclave – accessed through double doors – combines a generous bedroom, fireplace-equipped sitting room and private balcony with a simply massive bathroom equipped with double sinks, vanity area, elevated jetted tub and dramatically-arched walk-in shower.

12 Santa Cruz’s outdoor space is simply unparalleled.

Radiating around a central, trellis-topped bar with built-in BBQ, this sun-soaked wonderland includes multiple lounging / dining areas, a sparkling pool & spa, putting green, basketball half-court and fire pit.

It’s a space you won’t want to leave.

With luxury and privacy to spare, 12 Santa Cruz is full of surprises (the good kind) both inside and out.

But make your move soon, since all this opulence and all these amenities are bound to attract attention.
