It’s that time of year again – fall has officially arrived in Southern California! As we transition from the golden warmth of summer to slightly chillier temperatures, residents can enjoy the warmth of wood fires and harvest bounty they have been craving basically all year. Hilton & Hyland gathered five of our luxury homes that truly celebrate the bounties autumn has to offer.
Tucked away in Brentwood’s most exclusive enclave, actor Jim Belushi’s 14,000-square-foot, six-bed, 11-bath Northern Italian villa is the ultimate in luxury and gracious comforts. The impeccably manicured lawns are reminiscent of an Italian vineyard, boasting stone fountains, rustic trellis-covered arbors, a deep plunge accessible to the master suite and a 60-foot-long pool. This compound is a true entertainer’s dream.

Rancho de la Marron features a traditional main residence, 10 room guest lodge, 4 barns with 77 stalls,15 foaling stalls, a 10 stall covered mare motel, grain silo, numerous turn out pens and large pastures.
The private paradise boasts beautifully landscaped lawns, Magnolia-lined limestone walkways, hand-carved fountains, a tennis court, and a resort-style infinity pool with breathtaking panoramic views of the city lights and hillside. This magnificent Hidden Valley property offers a rare opportunity, minutes from Westlake Village, adjacent to the world-famous Sherwood Country Club and a short drive to the beautiful wineries of Malibu.
Waking up every morning to sweeping views of nature juxtaposed against the skyline as the leaves change colors is the best therapy and you never even have to leave your bed. In the event that you do, however, the Zen pool and spa, lavish lounge and barbecue create the next best escape. Minimalist lines intersect with organic textures inspired by lush canyon surroundings cultivate an immense sense of tranquility throughout.
There is no better home for the harvest than this contemporary farmhouse. Alfresco dining on the terrace complete with an outdoor fireplace extending to the lawn, pool, spa and large deck space is the ideal way to cozy up this fall. Additionally, the detached guest house, recognized with a Decade Honor Award in 2006, was a frequent haunt of Frank Gehry, who inspired its cubist design. Surrounded by nature and impeccable landscaping, its creek-side setting is truly maximized, creating a truly serene oasis.
