Posted by on Aug 7, 2013 in Blog Posts, Lifestyle | Comments Off on New in Luxury Real Estate ~ Underground Living

Is underground living the next new thing in luxury real estate? Los Angeles’ Hacienda De La Paz was just listed for $53 Million. This estate exudes a stunning Spanish – style home, however, the property is much more than that. Hacienda De La Paz “meets local building codes in the posh, gated city of Rolling Hills by keeping to one story. But those rules don’t say a word about building underground. What’s not visible from the street are five magnificent subterranean levels on 50,000 square feet accessible by labyrinthine passageways, two elevators and secret stairs.
