A rustic Tuscan farmhouse-style mansion that late real estate developer James Ring built as his primary residence is on the market in Calabasas.
The asking price is $20.5 million.
Inside the stone, brick and Venetian plaster walls are six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and several wellness areas — think a gym, massage room, spa and sauna.
According to records viewed on Property Shark, Ring and his wife, Raina, purchased the nearly 1.5-acre parcel in double guard-gated Estates of the Oaks from NM Homes One, Inc. for $1.7 million in 2004 and built an 11,488-square-foot home. They completed it in 2008.
“Created as Ring’s vision of heaven on earth, this unique oasis is unmatched and incomparable,” said Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Realty, who shares the listing with Tomer Fridman of Compass.
An entrance courtyard leads to glass doors. They open on a Versailles pattern-inspired stone floor and antique hand-hewn solid beam ceiling.
The kitchen features are two islands, a custom pizza oven and built-in appliances. It opens on one end to the breakfast room and the other to the family room.
There are two primary suites.
Elsewhere, the house contains a 15-seat theater with a concession bar, a wine tasting room with climate storage for 800 bottles and a wood-paneled library with a coffered wood ceiling.
Lounge areas dot the lush grounds, with a hillside waterfall tumbling into a koi pond under a canopy of trees.
Mountain and valley views provide a backdrop to the pool and spa.
Ring, who died in 2018 at age 70, was an urban developer and philanthropist. He made his mark by developing commercial buildings, shopping centers, apartments and senior living complexes, and single-family homes in Greater Los Angeles. He also built a philanthropic legacy.
Each year, Cal State Northridge awards two urban studies and planning scholarships in his name.
