In the luxury real estate market, finding a turnkey property is a hard to find jewel. With renovations that cost exorbitant amounts of money and time, finding a complete move-in ready property is a rarity. In this small minority in the luxury real estate market is property owner Gary Friedman, chairman and CEO of Restoration Hardware. This conglomerate recently purchased a vintage Wine Country estate in St. Helena, California and built a luxurious resort getaway on the property. Friedman noted that “what everyone underestimates is the value of time: it’s the one thing none of us can buy.” As a result of the low inventory of complete luxurious properties, Friedman’s estate holds enormous value in the market.
Friedman’s Wine Country estate is a wine lover’s dream. At 5,770 square feet, the property has 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The kitchen has the finest finishes with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, and features a floor-to-ceiling wine vault. The home also features a media and game room with bar and a fitness, yoga, and wellness studio with vineyard views. On the exterior of the property is a large swimming pool surrounded by beautiful palm trees. The space also has an alfresco kitchen and a sitting area with a fireplace to top it all off.
When considering the immense luxury real estate market, consider the importance of buying a move-in ready residence. As illustrated by Friedman’s estate, the beauty and bliss of a finished property is endless.
