Our Favorite Eats of the Year
Our editors weigh in on their most satisfying dining experiences.
For luxury real estate buyers, Los Angeles is a goldmine. But, one home just hit the market that would make even the most discerning house hunter’s jaw drop. The new eight-bedroom 21-bathroom Spanish Villa called UNICA was recently listed for $100 million.
So, what do you get for the nine-figure price tag? First, the new build comes with the standard design features you’d expect from a one-of-a-kind trophy estate. The sprawling 41,000-square-foot home is the epitome of open-concept living. The massive kitchen, dining, and living areas flow one right into the other, all featuring sleek American black walnut and burl walnut flooring. Meanwhile, the kitchen has a petrified wood island and La Cornue appliances, and the living room features an opulent marble fireplace (one of six) sourced from Antolini Italy.

As far as the sleeping spaces, there are two master suites with one accented by an arabascato orobico fireplace and a private balcony. The his-and-hers bathrooms are equally lavish with walk-in closets, dressing areas, and a white jade marble soaker tub and oversized glass shower.
The exterior is just as remarkable. It’s there you’ll find lush landscaping, a striking black basalt 30’ x 30’ waterfall, multi-level patio space for al fresco dining, a 75-foot size infinity-edge pool, weather-proof Samsung wall video board, and outdoor kitchen. Of course, city and canyon views abound both from inside and outside the house.
But, it’s the rare amenities that make it a personal luxury resort. On site, there’s a basketball court with NBA regulation 3-point lines, a two-level wine tasting room with cellar, 36-person theatre, indoor 75-foot saltwater lap pool, steam room and sauna, full gym, and a salon with an ice-bath. That’s not all, though. There’s also an outdoor projection screen, a 20-car gallery, recording studio, full staff service and living quarters, security room, and the top-of-the-line smart home system. And all of this can be found sitting atop the exclusive Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
“The pinnacle of luxury living with bespoke details in a world-class location, UNICA is an exceptional offering unlike any other,” reads the listing. “Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own your own personal resort in coveted California.”
