Home of the Week

Room to Breathe

March 04, 2001|RUTH RYON | TIMES STAFF WRITER

It's not the most acreage for a home in a gated community, but with 4.3 acres, this Orange County property is among the largest available with a newly built house and room for a barn, riding ring, pasture and corral.

*

About the house: Father-and-son builders Dick and Rich Hall might be remembered for their 1997 renovation of O.J. Simpson's former Brentwood home before it was purchased and demolished. But the Halls' company, Anaheim-based La Linda Homes, has been in business for 40 years, from building subdivisions to completing this home in Coto de Caza.

Asking price: $5.5 million

Size: The house has six bedrooms, seven baths and two half-baths in 8,800 square feet. The site also has a six-car garage.

Features: "We did some things you don't normally do in a spec house, like put in an elevator," the elder Hall said. Among the other features are an exercise room, library, great room, wine closet, game room and recreation room with private entry. The property has a rural flavor with mountain views, although it is in an estates area. The English manor-style house, designed by architect Jay Crawford, also has a pond, pool, spa and waterfalls.

Where: 31372 Trigo Trail, in the 4,000-acre master-planned Coto de Caza with its two 18-hole golf courses, nine tennis courts, an equestrian center and miles of trails. Open house today, noon to 6 p.m.

Listing agent: Diane Maher, Prudential California Realty, Laguna Niguel, (949) 249-6154.
