The owner of the six-bedroom Agoura Hills, Calif. mansion where TV's "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" are filmed has lowered his asking price again to $6,750,000, meaning that his listing price now is almost half his original, nearly $13 million asking price.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the latest price cut at the 7,590-square-foot mansion, which is at 2351 Kanan Road in Agoura Hills. We wrote about the rustic, Italian-style house previously, on October 10, when it was on the market for $8,750,000. The house later was reduced to $7,950,000. The latest price cut went into the MLS last week.
Owner Marshall Haraden built the house in 2005 and used materials for the house from Mexico, India, China and Morocco, according to an October Wall Street Journal article on the house.
Features in the house include nine baths, hand-carved Cantera stone fireplaces, imported fountains, a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, electronic skylights and dual pane windows, according to listing information. The living room is where the reality shows' incredibly cheesy "rose ceremonies" take place (pictured are 2007 "Bachelor" Andy Baldwin plus some of the gals at one such rose ceremony). Outdoor features include a separate, 4,000-square-foot accessory building, a solar-heated, saltwater swimming pool, a swim-up barbecue and bar, arched aqueduct spillways and two spas, according to listing information. The house sits on 9.8 acres, according to listing information (our review of public records had difficulty getting to that number, however).
Haraden calls the property Villa De La Vina, and he also rents it out. Take a look at his website for the house -- with lots of photos. And check out an online listing sheet for the house -- complete with photos.
