LA Hotelier Wants $38M for 180-Acre Malibu Estate Lush with Vineyards

Entrepreneur and hotelier George Rosenthal may own one of LA’s sexiest and most storied hotels—West Hollywood’s Sunset Marquis—but one of the businessman’s personal residences stands closer to the beach than the city. In fact, the expansive Malibu vineyard property known as Rosenthal Estate feels worlds away. It first appeared on the market in 2012 asking $59.5 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. Now spanning 180 acres instead of its former 235 acres, the listing asks $38 million.

The property’s main compound, done in a hacienda-style with architecture by Louis Angelikis, is just the start of this lavish retreat with a total of 12,000 square feet of living space. The warm yet grandiose design mirrors the breathtaking natural surroundings, and is further enhanced by two guest houses. One pool sits not far from the main house, a tiered beauty watched over by extensive cabanas and lounge areas. Another lies beside one of the guest houses, so visitors can have a private outdoor paradise of their own.

Along with extensive vineyards, the sprawling grounds hold 600 avocado trees and engaging art installations. Paths lead through the landscape and even offer private access to Backbone Trail. Then, to ensure entertaining is a glamorous event, a converted 2,545-square-foot stable serves as a tasting room and banquet space.

Sandro Dazzan of The Agency and Jade Mills and Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Realty, Beverly Hills hold the listing.
