Esteemed fashion designer Allen Schwartz has listed his unique 1.64-acre estate in the coveted Mandeville Canyon area of Brentwood for almost $23.5 million. The elegant ranch-style property was home to the famous design director of A.B.S by Allen Schwartz – a designer label that first rose to fame during the '90s.

Allen purchased the idyllic compound – constructed of the main ranch house, three guesthouses, two swimming pools, and the first clay tennis court in Los Angeles. Since its construction, the estate has welcomed celebrities, including tennis champion John McEnroe and actor David Duchovny.
The ranch-style home is certainly something to behold – with its six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and great room, which showcase quintessential Californian allure through its wooden beamed ceilings and traditional French doors.

The charming main property also has a large wood-kissed country kitchen – with a statement kitchen island – the perfect location for the Mandeville Canyon house party of the season.
While the interiors overflow with classic-Cali charisma, the exterior space is equally as majestic. The sun-drenched oasis overflows with mature trees and waterfalls that surround several entertaining areas. There is also an outdoor kitchen space with a wood-burning fireplace to keep guests warm in the unlikely event that the climate drops in the golden state.
While the ranch is celebrated for its secluded elements, it remains in the heart of the magnificent Mandeville Canyon neighborhood, which begins at the fringe of Sunset Boulevard. The vibrant community is brimming with exclusive bars, eateries, and designer stores – this was a fashion designer's home, after all.
