What do Blake Griffin, Justin Bieber, and DeAndre Jordan have in common? Besides being A-list celebrities and star NBA players, they all live in homes developed and built by Huntington Estate Properties, one of Los Angeles’ best-known ultra high-end real estate companies. Today, Huntington announced plans to develop five new mansions in Bel-Air and West LA. But these homes will have something no other Huntington property has. Namely, amenities entirely devoted to providing the most luxurious at-home cannabis experience money can buy.
Take a Tour Around LA’s New Marijuana Mansions
On Wednesday, TMZ broke an exclusive story about Ray Nosrati’s plans to build five new, ultra high-end homes for pro athletes, celebs and execs who are all about that cannabis lifestyle. The founder of Huntington Estate Properties, Nosrati has been building luxury homes in Southern California for more than a decade. Huntington is unique among high-end real estate developers because Nosrati has a hand in each home’s design. His properties are known for their wow-factors, like vintage screening rooms, indoor bowling alleys and even secret rooms.
But Nosrati’s new plans will feature wow factors of a different kind: those that will give residents everything they need to grow, harvest and enjoy cannabis. Here’s a brief tour of everything Nosrati’s five upcoming marijuana mansions will offer:
First, each residence will feature a dedicated “cannabis conservatory.” The conservatory provides everything needed to grow organic, top-shelf medicinal cannabis, as well as a range of amenities and devices for smoking, vaping and cooking with weed. Taking a look at early 3D renderings, the cannabis conservatories will open up onto an infinity pool and a breathtaking view of the city. Ample space for a session with close friends or a large hang are all provided for, as are bongs that look like ornamental vases.
Those who are musically inclined can tickle the ivories on a grand piano, located just outside the smoke lounge area. Guests can also check out the organic hydroponic cultivation gallery featuring a maximum of six cannabis plants—California’s legal limit for homegrown.
Cannabis Conservatories Will Come With Their Own Dedicated Grower—Seriously
But celebs, pro athletes and Fortune 500 CEOs don’t have time (or probably the know-how) to grow their own weed. Nosrati, however, has that covered. Each of his five marijuana mansions will come with its own, dedicated harvester. Yes, you read that correctly: there will be a dedicated harvester on staff at each mansion. For two years, the harvester will plant, water, fertilize and harvest cannabis for the home’s owners. And if home-owners want, they can also ask the harvester to grow organic veggies in addition to weed. Amazing.
Huntington hasn’t listed any of its marijuana mansions yet. Building has just begun. And the first two will go on sale, Nosrati hopes, by summer 2019. Opening bids will probably float around $30-40 million. So it will be interesting to see who ends up in one of these homes. Because whoever it is, we’ll know they really love cannabis.
