14,762 Sq. ft. | $33.75 million


Want to live like a diplomat? Introducing the Bel-Air home of U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands, now on the market for $37 million. Situated at 1244 Moraga Drive, in the prestigious enclave of Moraga Estates, this classic Italian-style villa pairs approximately 14,762 square feet of living space with a rare double lot of almost 4 acres.

“The amount of flat land that encompasses this exceptional property is beyond compare,” says listing agent Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“It includes an oversized garden … and it’s in a 24-hour guard-gated community, which gives it a special security and privacy. The scale of the design and rooms is remarkable.”

Among the highlights: four bedrooms; formal living and dining rooms; and a library with a fireplace and walk-in bar; plus a pool; south-facing Mediterranean loggia; one-bedroom, two-bath guest house; motor court for 10 cars; and Crestron home-automation system.
