Lionsgate Estate: includes equestrian and hiking trails along Sandia Creek and the Santa Margarita River

“Enjoy breathtaking views of your own swimming lake”

“A spacious yet intimate atmosphere” - with enough money, there are no contradictions.
“A spacious yet intimate atmosphere” - with enough money, there are no contradictions.

Lionsgate Estate comprises 17 acres in northeastern Fallbrook, including the 6400-square-foot main residence located at 40935 Via Ranchitos, a 4800-square foot lake house, and a third guest cottage, bringing the total living area under roof to more than 12,000 square feet.

“Enter through the wrought-iron gate and follow the palm-lined drive up to this stunning Mediterranean villa,” invite the listing remarks on Realtor.com. That is, of course, unless you arrive by air and touch down at the estate’s private heliport.

“With attention to detail and impeccable craftsmanship, the thoughtful open floor plan with natural wood vaulted ceilings creates a spacious yet intimate atmosphere,” the listing continues.

The main residence boasts two full kitchens, including one equipped with professional-grade appliances for on-site party catering. Other rooms include a wood-paneled library, “conversation room,” and a wine cellar “with temperature controlled vault.”

The ol’ $17 million swimming hole.

The ground-level master suite “boasts a separate sitting room and a private vintage teak floor patio,” along with a bath including “heated marble floors with a custom inlay medallion, steam shower, and Jacuzzi tub.”

Outside, buyers can “enjoy a stroll through the grounds, past a lush flower and vegetable garden with a variety of fruit trees and cascading waterfalls nearby.

“Pass under a canopy of over 100 native trees along a seasonal babbling brook and a serene meadow,” including “ancient live oaks and sycamores” that gives way to a grove of 200 mature macadamia trees and “beautifully manicured rolling green lawns. A south-facing terraced hillside is suitable for a personal vineyard or citrus grove” to boot.

Forget the elaborate pools featured at other mansions; here you’ll “enjoy breathtaking views of your own swimming lake” that’s fed by three on-property wells that also supply the estate’s irrigation system. The lake house is set up as an elaborate game room by the current owners, and includes a “beautiful waterside deck” for those electing not to swim.

Also included on the property is a “lovely two-bedroom guest house” with its own two-car garage and private gated entrance, adding to the five garage stalls offered by the main house. There’s also “a mini amphitheater for live entertainment and concerts.”

Lionsgate is flanked by 1300 acres of conservancy land that’s protected from future development, including equestrian and hiking trails along Sandia Creek and the Santa Margarita River. The isolation may help explain why the property “is regularly used by celebrities and film crews,” as the listing brags.

Public records for Lionsgate Estate are a bit murky when it comes to ownership. For decades, the property was owned by real estate investor Sidney Syvertson and his wife Diana. Sidney passed away in 2008, and the property was then transferred to a holding company, Town & Country LLC, though a sale wasn’t reported until late 2016 for $2.5 million.

After just two years off market, the estate was listed again in early October. The new asking price, which “includes all furnishings and a cigar man-cave” along with a helicopter (which can be booked for a private tour of the grounds by financially qualified individuals) is now set at $17 million.
