“HOUSE OF THE DAY: A Ranch in Sedona” — WSJ


Ingrid Hills and her late husband, Reuben W. Hills III, the grandson of the founder of Hills Bros. coffee, bought this 173-acre ranch in Sedona, Ariz., for $10 million in 2003 through a family trust, according to Mrs. Hills. Mrs. Hills estimates that over the years she has put more than $4 million into the property. ‘We really weren’t looking for a ranch,” says Mrs. Hills. ‘We didn’t ride. But the place is magical.’

The couple were attracted to the property’s location as well as the home’s modern architecture, as seen in the great room, shown here. ‘The main house is an architectural marvel. It’s almost round with a soaring rotunda as you enter,’ says Mrs. Hills.

The approximately 6,000-square-foot main house has two bedrooms, one is shown here, and 2½ baths. Longtime San Francisco residents, the Hills came to Sedona for the climate. ‘My husband had severe asthma and emphysema and we did some research and we learned that Sedona had some of the best air in America—it’s a high, dry desert plateau,’ says Mrs. Hills.

The skylight in the master bedroom, shown here, has a remote-control shade in case you want to watch the stars at night. Mrs. Hills says that while the ranch is very private, it’s less than 15 minutes to downtown Sedona.

The great room opens onto a patio, shown here, with a barbecue that Mrs. Hills added. Mrs. Hills says the setting among the mountains and the red rocks gives her a sense of tranquility. ‘You look at these ancient natural wonders and you feel quite humbled in their presence,’ says Mrs. Hills.

The property includes a lap pool, Jacuzzi and gym, all shown here. There is also a 1,600-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom caretaker’s house as well as an amphitheater. ‘You’re below the red rock and there’s this round stage and it has natural acoustics on account of the rocks. A friend who is an opera singer came and the natural amplification was awesome,’ says Mrs. Hills.

The 1,229-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse, shown here, looks out at the red rocks. ‘We are bordering the national forest and you can ride for days on end or hike for days on end,’ says Mrs. Hills. The property borders the Coconino National Forest. Mrs. HIlls says there also are plenty of desert critters including rabbits and the occasional bobcat.

‘The guesthouse is very cozy and beautiful,’ says Mrs. Hills. The living room is shown here. Mrs. Hills says she is selling the property because she now spends most of her time at her home in Woodside, Calif. Mr. Hills, who worked in the family business, died in 2005 at the age of 81.

The property’s equestrian facilities include a 4,225-square-foot barn, a corral and two stables. ‘The irony is we’ve never had horses, we were going to turn the stables into classrooms and workrooms,’ says Mrs. Hills, adding that the couple let students and professors from a nearby university use parts of the ranch for research on drought-resistant plants.

The cantina, shown here, is one of two that sit near the stables. The ranch was first listed in 2006 with an asking price of $29.9 million. Since then it has been on and off the market, and was relisted in October 2013 with an asking price of $17.99 million. Josh Altman and Matthew Altman of Hilton & Hyland share the listing with Scott Grigg of Realty Executives in Paradise Valley, Ariz.

Josh Altman to Sell Malibu Barbie’s Dream Home

Josh Altman

Los Angeles is never short of events that make headlines around the world, whether it is about entertainment, culture, or real estate. But this past week, Hilton & Hyland’s own Josh Altman was featured in the New York Times because of what will be one of the more unique projects of his career so far – the sale of Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse. This is arguably the most revered and recognizable of all properties in all of Southern California, even more so than any home designed by a major architect or owned by a celebrity.

However, there is one catch. This home, valued at $25 Million, does not really exist in Malibu. In fact, it doesn’t exist in the full-sized world at all. It is, in real life, a plastic home that is clad in all shades of pink, available for purchase off the shelf in numerous toy stores, and a best seller in the Barbie universe since 1971. But after over 40 years of living here, even Barbie has apparently felt the need to change things up. Thus, Mattel is making the most of this brilliant yet ultimately imaginary opportunity in order to renew attention to the toy line and look towards the future.

Barbie Dream House Bedroom

Mattel is no stranger to shrewd publicity events. In 2004, Barbie even had a public break-up with her longtime beau-in-plastic Ken, which rivaled even the most notorious celebrity gossip. The idea that she would sell her home today, in a time where real estate shows are among the most popular on television, is not at all out of left field. And choosing Josh Altman as the real-life Realtor® is also a no brainer, as his achievements with Hilton & Hyland and his high profile turn on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing have made him an ideal choice for the rich and famous.

According to Josh Altman, there has already been a wide range of interest in this iconic home.

“I have received multiple inquiries about Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse. Celebrities love the space, amenities, and privacy it provides. Architecture buffs know that this home is truly one-of-a-kind. And who wasn’t an aspiring Barbie at some point? You won’t believe who wants to follow in her footsteps.”

Altman, however, was mum about the names of the buyers, who he claims have included rival dolls and even stuffed animal royalty.

“Due to the nature of this sale, you must understand that I must keep all parties anonymous.”

Along with the assistance of Josh Altman, four renowned designers will also be in charge of advising Barbie with her future house hunt. They include Jonathan Adler, Lulu de Kwiatkowski, Celerie Kemble, and Trina Turk, who will undoubtedly ensure that Barbie’s next home will meet her demands for style and comfort, Interested parties can follow the entire buying and selling process on various websites and social media channels, including,, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

The $100 Million Question – New York Times

The $100 Million Question



NINE months after the billionaire British heiress Petra Ecclestone set this city buzzing with her purchase of a 123-room estate for $85 million, the real estate community here is hoping the sale will help propel prices high enough to crack the elusive $100 million barrier.

Even in this town of fast fortunes and extravagant mansions, the record purchase price, for Candy Spelling’s Manor in Holmby Hills, by Ms. Ecclestone, the daughter of the Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, was a showstopper. Ms. Ecclestone was only 22 years old, after all, and already owned a 20,000-square-foot home in the London neighborhood of Chelsea valued at $87 million.

One interesting twist in the script is that the deal to buy the Manor from Ms. Spelling, the widow of the producer Aaron Spelling, would most likely not have been possible — especially in the mere 48 hours it took to finalize — without another prospective buyer’s negotiation on the home with Ms. Spelling nine months earlier.

In late 2010 Dmitry Rybolovlev, the Russian potash fertilizer billionaire, quietly made a visit to Los Angeles with his eldest daughter, Ekaterina. He made offers on at least two of the most famous mansions in Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills, including the Spelling manor, before deciding not to buy a home on the West Coast, at least for now, according to people familiar with their deliberations who declined to be named for confidentiality reasons.

Instead, Ekaterina, using a trust linked to her father, bought the former Citi chairman Sanford I. Weill’s penthouse at 15 Central Park West for $88 million, a record price in New York. Since then Mr. Rybolovlev’s messy divorce has put that apartment and a home he bought for about $100 million in Palm Beach, Fla., in the crosshairs of his wife’s lawyers.

While to some the $85 million sale here may have been an outlier, to brokers it is a hopeful comp that has helped heat up the high end of the Los Angeles market.

“The market is just on fire the last several months,” said Rick Hilton, a co-owner of Hilton & Hyland, a brokerage in Beverly Hills and an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. (Mr. Hilton is also the father of the celebutantes Paris and Nicky Hilton.)

Mr. Hilton said the inventory for premium properties was in short supply. For those following Manhattan real estate, it’s a familiar story.

“You have a lot of wealthy people that are nervous about the stock market,” he said.

As in New York and Miami, foreign money is pouring into Los Angeles — from Russians and Chinese, as well as Germans, Britons and Indonesians — who are eager to park their money in real estate, brokers said.

Bidding wars are back, as are New Yorkers. One Brentwood home Hilton & Hyland listed about three weeks ago for $10.25 million drew three potential buyers, all investment bankers from New York, Mr. Hilton said. It went into escrow after 10 days on the market, he said.

Last year Hilton & Hyland handled $1.2 billion in real estate transactions, up from $1 billion in 2010, and they have about $250 million in pending transactions this month, said Jeffrey Hyland, Mr. Hilton’s partner at the firm.

There have been some big transactions recently, including Jennifer Aniston’s $35 million sale of her home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills to a co-founder of an investment firm in Orange County, a record per-square-foot celebrity sale, brokers said. In fact, three of the top five sales in the city in the past decade have happened in the past 18 months, brokers said.

But none have rivaled the $85 million Ms. Ecclestone paid Ms. Spelling, even if her original asking price had been $150 million. The French-chateau-style mansion, with 56,000 square feet, sits on more than 4.6 acres, and includes a screening room, a bowling alley and a parking lot for 100 vehicles.

Since the purchase she has “Petra-fied” the home, as W magazine put it, painting many of the rooms dark colors, including her 7,000-square-foot master suite, which is now black. With the help of the celebrity designer Gavin Brodin, the house was transformed from “an old ‘Dynasty’-like set to a massive V.I.P. lounge,” W wrote.

The Spelling home often received poor ratings from architecture critics and others who said it dwarfed other estates in Holmby Hills. Still, Ms. Ecclestone actually found it homier than other mansions she toured last year, said Mr. Hilton, her broker on the purchase.

Her Los Angeles housing search began in earnest last spring ahead of her $19 million Italian wedding in August to James Stunt, a British businessman. The couple wanted to live at least part of the year on the West Coast.

She was initially interested in the Fleur de Lys, a Holmby Hills estate built by the Texas billionaire couple David and Suzanne Saperstein and modeled after a French palace, which was on the market for $125 million. “She preferred the Spelling house; she felt it was more of a family home,” said Mr. Hilton. “It was not as formal.” A spokesman for Ms. Ecclestone declined to comment.

So Mr. Hilton drove Ms. Ecclestone eight blocks to the Spelling manor, which Hilton & Hyland also was listing. There, in just two days, they struck a deal at $85 million.

It seems that Ms. Spelling was eager to sell for that price because Mr. Rybolovlev had already negotiated with her down to that number in 2010, said one person familiar with the discussions.

In October 2010 the Russian billionaire had been on a Los Angeles housing search of his own. He rented the famed Beverly House compound in Beverly Hills from Leonard M. Ross, a real estate magnate, for about $600,000 for a 45-day stay, Mr. Ross said.

The sprawling property, with its descending series of long pools, has 18 bedrooms and more than 50,000 square feet in the main house alone. William Randolph Hearst lived there until his death, and John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy spent part of their 1953 honeymoon there.

And in a bit of movie nostalgia that appealed to Mr. Rybolovlev, the house was the setting for scenes involving a Hollywood producer in “The Godfather.” (After conferring with someone who has worked there for 38 years, Mr. Ross said that the scene where a horse’s head is found in the producer’s bed was apparently not filmed at the house.)

Mr. Rybolovlev made an offer between $85 million and $100 million for Beverly House, but he and Mr. Ross could not agree on a price, said Mr. Ross, who has owned the property for 35 years. Back then he was asking $165 million, a price Mr. Ross said he set after seeing that Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the United States, had put a $135 million asking price on his 95-acre estate in Aspen, Colo.

“I felt this had more value,” Mr. Ross said while giving me a tour of Beverly House on Tuesday. (Mr. Ross paid less than $2 million for the compound.)

While in Los Angeles, Mr. Rybolovlev, with his daughter Ekaterina in tow, also toured the Spelling manor with Mr. Hilton and was interested enough to negotiate, but in the end he pulled out, said a person familiar with the matter.

Mr. Hilton declined to comment on Mr. Rybolovlev’s housing search. Sergey Chernitsyn, a spokesman for the Russian, declined to discuss which homes he toured.

Despite its history and grandeur, Beverly House was not among those homes that Ms. Ecclestone seriously considered, Mr. Ross said. Nevertheless, he believes that sometime soon a home in the “Golden Triangle” of Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills and Bel Air will break through the $100 million sale price. He is currently asking $95 million for the majority of his compound.

With the Rybolovlevs’ Palm Beach home deemed off-limits because of legal wrangling over the divorce, maybe Ms. Rybolovlev, 22, could find a warm getaway home in Los Angeles to complement her Central Park apartment (which, at 6,744 square feet, is about the size of Ms. Ecclestone’s master suite at the Manor).

With more heiresses in the city, perhaps that $100 million ceiling would be broken in no time.

Hilton & Hyland Marketing Los Angeles Luxury Homes via Youku, the 'Chinese Version of YouTube'

The Beverly Hills, California-based luxury real estate firm of Hilton & Hyland has developed an innovative way to connect with homebuyers in China looking to purchase luxury real estate in the Los Angeles area.

The firm launched a streaming video on Youku – what some have dubbed the “Chinese Massage version of YouTube”, to provide the country’s consumers with monthly market updates about ultra-luxury homes in the most desirable parts ofLos Angeles. The English Web site is An accompanying Chinese language site,, is slated to launch in February 2012.

“Home prices in Los Angeles’ exclusive neighborhoods, such as Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills Post Office, Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, Malibu and more are the lowest they’ve been in nearly a decade,” said veteran REALTOR® Rodrigo Iglesias, who is spearheading the project. “It’s a great window of opportunity for international buyers.”

The Youku streaming video is a marketing breakthrough, added Iglesias, considering China once banned consumers from the entire YouTube site. In an effort to stimulate the housing market, Congress is also considering legislation that would grant visas to international buyers who spend more than $500,000 on a residential property in the U.S.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services currently administers the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as “EB-5.” The program provides visas to foreigners who invest in approved real estate developments and other businesses that create at least 10 jobs in the U.S. Visas can eventually turn into green cards and permanent resident status.

The market reports have already gained popularity on a variety of social networking sites and Christie’s International Real Estate Network. Iglesias presented the updates for a week last summer at The Blue Marlin in Ibiza, Spain – one of the most sophisticated beach clubs in Europe.
