These days, it can be tough to find a nice 200+ acre ranch on a private hilltop location featuring a massive four-bedroom, 8,000-square-foot mansion made out of redwood, marble, and glass, as well as land is ripe for further development for under $90 million. But this property in Rancho Santa Fe (a census-designated place in San Diego County, California) delivers, with an asking price of only $85 million. What a deal!
The house was built in 1973 and resembles nothing so much as the lair of business tycoon in a modern film noir who turns out to be the mastermind behind a string of seemingly unrelated crimes that were in fact committed by his henchmen in order to consolidate his power and gain a monopoly over some entire industry. Or something like that.
