When it came time for one of the world’s most beloved sports icons to seek solitude in Southern California, he settled on six magical acres of knolltop enchantment overlooking the prestigious Sherwood Country Club. Celebrating a nonstop panorama of fairways, lake, and mountains, his Georgian manor—presented past a long drive, formal gardens, fountained courtyard, and pillared portico—blends architectural purity with twenty-first-century sensibility. Ebony floors, rare onyx marble fireplaces, and elaborate triple moldings embellish the breathtaking rooms, which flow gracefully from palacelike living and dining rooms to an intimate library, screening room, executive office, pub, and magnificent cook’s kitchen. Romance reaches a zenith in one of the five lavish suites: the owners’ sumptuous master wing, outfitted with his-and-her marble baths. Doors unveil poolside gardens, a carriage house, two guesthouses, a tennis court, and viewing pavilion—and what a view it is.
