13027 Blairwood Drive


Known as Chateau Marguerite, this classic Umbrian-inspired estate not only delights in the breathtaking scenery from a wealth of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors, but also is graced with its very own vineyard. Found in the hills of the coveted Longridge Estates community, on the border of Studio City and Sherman Oaks, the private, gated retreat offers rows upon rows of Cabernet grapevines from Napa Valley’s acclaimed Quintessa vineyard.

The current owners contracted with local vintners Grape Expectations to prepare the land, plant the vines, install irrigation and maintain the harvest (which yields 12 cases of delicious Cabernet Sauvignon a year). “It’s so unique to entertain family and friends, drinking your own wine while enjoying these incredibly beautiful views,” says listing agent Craig Knizek of The Agency.

Adding to the property’s resort-like appeal: a show-stopping kitchen recently updated with new cabinetry and hardware; a one-of-a-kind master suite boasting an office, gym, and dual spa-like baths; separate guest house; and an expansive outdoor space hosting fountains, a sparkling pool, and spa, and built-in-barbecue.
