$65M Equestrian Estate With a Polo Field Is the Most Expensive New Listing


A coastal estate in Summerland, CA, with a polo field, helipad, and putting green is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. It’s on the market for $65 million.

Completed in 2005, the equestrian compound known as Bella Vista Polo Ranch has an old-world ambiance.

“It was built in the style of Monticello,” says real estate agent Sabra Gandhi Sellers, who is co-listing the property with real estate agent Shawn Elliott. “One of the amazing features of the property is that virtually every room has an ocean view. Because of the way the coastline curves in that area, you can see both the sunset and the sunrise over the ocean from the property.”

The 43,000-square-foot estate situated on 20 acres right on the coastline is extremely rare, Sellers says.

The area is popular with the affluent and celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres, who have homes here.

This mansion belongs to Patrick Nesbitt, founder and chairman of Windsor Capital Group, who is active in the polo scene, according to the Los Angeles Times. The estate was on the market in 2016—also for $65 million—and reappeared this week.

So grab a flute of bubbly and let’s tour the grounds.

Like to entertain? Then make your way down to the lower level, with a 5,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, 20-seat home theater, gym, salon, sports bar, and disco. There’s also a rooftop deck with a barbecue, hot tub, and ocean views.

Hosting visitors won’t be a problem thanks to a guest wing and a separate guesthouse. Along with a four-car garage, exterior parking is available for 100 cars.

In addition to the main house, the property comes with a polo field and clubhouse, stables, horse trails, English- and Japanese-style gardens, a putting green, duck ponds, and a butterfly habitat. A 128-foot-long pool and pool house round out the offerings.

If all of that doesn’t satisfy you, there’s another bonus: You’re just a minute from the beach.
