Melody Smith Sells Highest Priced Home In Nellie Gail Ranch
Melody did it again! 25201 Derbyhill Drive in the Laguna Hills equestrian community of Nellie Gail Ranch has sold for a record price. After receiving multiple offers, the home sold for $10,100,000, the highest sale in the community’s history.
Set upon what is considered one of the best parcels in Nellie Gail Ranch, this elegant custom estate has been remodeled with incomparable quality and design. The rare, nearly 2-acre lot with spectacular views, is positioned at the end of a cul-de-sac offering utmost privacy behind a gated circular driveway. Spanning 8,100 square feet with 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms plus generous exterior living areas amongst the finely manicured grounds.
Entertaining spaces abound with 2 formal living room areas, a formal 2-story dining room, and a jaw dropping open kitchen adorned with appliances fit for a chef. The main level offers floor-to-ceiling windows with hill views from nearly every room, bi-fold doors epitomizing indoor/outdoor living, 2 en-suite bedrooms, and an opulent office/library with custom built-ins, perfect for remote work. The upper level is fit for easy living for a large family, including a spacious bonus room and 5 en-suite bedrooms. Retreat to the resort-inspired primary suite with fireplace, balcony, large walk-in closet and spa bathroom.
The sprawling exterior features resort grounds with views of city lights, hills, and sunset vistas. Relax by the pool, challenge each other to a match on the lighted tennis court, or BBQ and entertain in the covered loggia complete with wrap-around seating, heaters, TV and fireplace. Automobile enthusiasts will enjoy the 4-car garage with a lift, and approved plans for an additional 2-car garage.
The sellers bought 25201 Derbyhill Drive in October of 2019, a purchase in which Melody represented them. They went on to do a full home renovation and expansion prior to listing the home again in February of 2022.
Melody’s market knowledge, masterful marketing skills, and ability to deliver remarkable results is displayed in the representation of this custom estate. The record-setting industry powerhouse has been featured on just about every major media outlet, including NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX. She’s also in the top 1% of 1% of agents in the country and has influenced over a billion dollars in sales.
