For you comparison shoppers, we’ve put this newsletter in the order of highest- to lowest-priced properties. Really, it was no trouble at all.
And for those who like to read the last page of the book first to find out how things turn out, here’s a cover blurb: This week’s offerings range from $69 million for a 5-plus acre presidential estate in San Clemente to a new Topanga mobile home of an "Orange Is the New Black" star.
A San Clemente estate known as the Western White House during Richard M. Nixon’s presidency has come back up for sale at $69 million. That’s $6 million off the $75 million that was asked last year.
Called La Casa Pacifica when Nixon took ownership in 1969, the sprawling 5.45-acre compound sits on an ocean bluff and is secured by a 1,500-foot-long wall.
A California Colonial Revival main house dating to the 1920s, a two-bedroom guesthouse, staff residences and offices total some 15,000 square feet of living space. There’s also a greenhouse, a pool, a tennis court, formal gardens and expanses of lawn.
