Ronald and Nancy Reagan’s longtime property in Pacific Palisades, California is on the market for $33 million. That’s estate where way back in 1980 Ronald was told ‘congratulations, you’re president of the United States’ while he took a shower. But, the original house has since been replaced. In its stead is a newly built, roughly 10,000-square-foot spec house with five bedrooms plus staff quarters. No luxury amenity has been overlooked.
In addition to a gym and a 2,000-bottle temperature-controlled wine room, the estate has a powder room lined with peacock feathers. The roughly 2,000-square-foot master suite has a dedicated luggage closet as well as a shoe closet that holds 365 pairs. The property, with views of the ocean and the city skyline, also has a heated pool, a guest house and two garages, one of which is a glass fronted “show garage” with a bar and Kegerator that dispenses beer.
The newly-built home was developed by Janus Cercone and Michael Manheim of Jaman Properties.
They told that elements of the Reagan’s original home have been incorporated into the new building, including the door to the shower Reagan was using when he won the presidency as well as the salvaged bar from the Reagan’s living room. In honor of the property’s presidential history, the developers’ added a garden off the library filled with rose bushes named after the Presidents and the First Ladies.
A brass plaque bearing the Presidential Seal is now fastened to the wall on that very spot where US history was made.
