Warmth and grace meets elegance and style at this timeless European-inspired estate at 1724 Via Coronel in Palos Verdes Estates

An exquisite European-inspired estate custom-designed by Ardeshir Nozari of Santa Monica-based Nozari + Nozari Architects for Napa winery owner Darioush Khaledi and his wife, Shahpar, has entered the market in Palos Verdes Estates for $7.9 million.

Think sprawling interiors showcasing the finest in materials and craftsmanship (including a mural painted by the late Gianni Versace’s personal artists) paired with elaborate and private outdoor environs topped by a tennis court, and one of the best ocean views in the entire South Bay.

Found at 1724 Via Coronel—crowning a hilltop offering up breathtaking panoramic vistas of the Pacific—the three-story, 10,000-plus square foot residence was originally built in 1994 and is highlighted by special touches throughout.

All who enter the enchanting stucco and limestone property are welcomed via magnificent Czechoslovakian wrought-iron doors that open into an impressive two-story, marble-clad rotunda entry highlighted by a domed ceiling with a mural and skylights, cloisters and an eye-catching vine-wrapped rod iron spiral staircase.

Once inside, colonnade-style hallways lead to a palatial main floor expressly built for the entertainer, replete with a formal living room boasting intricately patterned hardwood flooring and a 17th-century, hand-carved stone wood-burning fireplace that connects to a regal study ideal for a nightcap over a game of cards under a handsome coffered wood ceiling. A formal dining room that seats 24 (complete with the aforementioned mural by Versace’s personal artist) opens to a large terrace clad in Indian slate.

An added bonus: the house has been designed so the living room, study, dining room, entry and terrace can be set up to accommodate a large gathering during special events.

Countless glass French doors, meanwhile, open to reveal seamless indoor-outdoor environs that include a 36,933-square-foot lot featuring a multilayered entertainment deck with a curved pool, sporting fountains, a spa, and blue mosaic tile, an adjacent built-in fire pit with seating and even a tennis court.

Yet other show-stopping attributes found on the main level include a walk-in wet bar trimmed in veneer panels of hammered gold to resemble a Parisian brasserie, and a professional chef’s kitchen outfitted with French marble countertops and a commercial-grade stove with a built-in wok.

Upstairs is a sumptuous master suite featuring a balcony, and a decadent bath equipped with a dressing area, large walk-in shower and indulgent spa tub. And complementing this home’s alluring appeal: a basement level incorporating a five-car garage, copper-lined wine cellar and sauna.

The home’s location, view, orientation and design cannot be replaced,” says Zebrowski. “This is truly one-of-a-kind.”
