Trust Ranch, Estate of the Day
Actress Jane Sibbett often gets cast in the role of the glacial blonde but her home in the Topanga area is warm and inviting. She first put her Trust Ranch on the market last fall for $7 million. The 17-acre property in the hills is a horse ranch with a four-bedroom home that was renovated according to the mathematical proportion known as the golden ratio and features "blessings" such as fun and laughter embedded in the walls. Sibbett and her husband writer/producer Karl Fink are buying a farm in Hawaii but that sale is contingent on this one as reported in the Wall Street Journal. And so, the couple has cut the price of the ranch to $5.2 million. The pair bought the property for just $750,000 ten years ago but have made significant improvements and expansions to the home. The house will appeal to those with a love of nature. There is a vegetable garden, a six-horse barn and plenty of hilly land. It doesn't have a pool or the requisite large deck for entertaining so it won't meet the needs of many L.A. shoppers but it is great home for those who want to feel like they are away from Los Angeles.
