A Southern California menagerie for $22.95 million

You can live your Tiger King fantasy (sort of) in a 1,230-acre ranch outside of San Juan Capistrano, California, that comes with its own wild animals. 

Herbalife cofounder Dick Marconi bought the property, bordering on Cleveland National Forest, back in 1994 for a modest $1.2 million, according to Jody Neal of Berkshire Hathaway, and is listing it now for $22.95 million. Marconi has spent nearly 30 years expanding the unique getaway, adding a staff residence to the main house and guest house, as well as an art studio and gallery, a 2,200-square-foot museum and chapel, two gun ranges, and a 51-acre exotic animal reserve with giraffes, African antelopes, llamas, and a dozen zebras. The property is also home to a helipad, two lakes, some 23,000 lemon trees, and 1,000 olive trees imported from Italy. “The whole thing is off grid. It has its own power station and its own water and sanitation,” Neal told The Wall Street Journal.

The price tag includes the animals in the reserve—as well as a collection of statues, including a 15-foot bronze rendition of Neptune from Florence. The full-size replica of Michelangelo’s Pietà in the chapel, however, is not part of the sale.

Förena brings unity to Chelsea, New York City

Landsea Homes and DNA Development are unveiling two model residences at Förena, the 12-story Morris Adjmi Architects–designed tower on Sixth Avenue and 14th Street in Manhattan that’s named after the Swedish word for “unite.”

Urban Casa design expert Neila Deen incorporated a variety of wood finishes, neutral bedding, and custom artwork into the two units. Deen describes the rich green Graham & Brown Palais wallpaper, with its large-scale geometric design, as “modern yet classically elegant.” She tells AD PRO, “We felt the subtle copper detailing on the deep forest green would tie in beautifully with the rich wood and leather accents used throughout the apartment decor.”
