Yahoozit! The Times' Hot Property Column leads us to this 265 acre, $35 million spread just east of the 405 in the Bel Air area. Listed on Sotheby's, the property owner has no intent of selling this property to just any old multi-millionaire, so tract home developers need not apply. However, if you're a wealthy, preservation-minded individual, please do take one of their fliers.
"Our vision is to find a family or an individual to grow vineyards and put in a putting green," said Drew Mandile, who has the listing with Brooke Knapp of Sotheby's International Realty, Beverly Hills. "Create a compound," their flier suggests. "Use your imagination." The property has a forest, stream, hills and views from the city to the sea.
