This $26.5 million house is the ultimate shrine to Star Wars
The ultimate shrine to Star Wars may not be at Disneyland. It's located in this absolutely gorgeous property in Hidden Hills, Calif. Listed at $26.5 million by The Agency, the 18,183-square-foot home is loaded with incredible collectibles, life-size props and a Star Wars-themed home theater.
Come with us on a tour of this amazing Southern California property.
Welcome to the ultimate private Star Wars fan experience
The entire 5,000-square-foot basement of the home is Star Wars themed, and it's honestly far more awesome than you can even imagine. Here's the landing, complete with a Star Cade machine and foosball table.
According to Arvin Haddad, star of the new CNBC show Listing Impossible and one of the agents for the property, many homes in Hidden Hills go overboard with unique basements.
"Having a tricked-out basement is a must in the ultra luxury, celebrity-studded town of Hidden Hills," he said. "Homeowners here love to highlight their personal lives and passions. And this seller is beyond passionate about Star Wars."
While the seller is willing to negotiate the inclusion of the Star Wars collection in the sale of the home, Haddad says the eventual billionaire buyer (perhaps a pro sports player or movie star?) will have the option of remaking the basement into whatever he or she is passionate about instead.
...play on this incredible dual-television gaming setup. Note the pair of PSVR headsets for the PS4, along with a pair of Microsoft Kinect sensors for the Xbox One. And yup, you can totally see Han Solo frozen in carbonite through the double doors.
But this area is only for gaming: There's a separate, Star Wars-themed home theater waiting just down the hall to the right. But first, you'll need to pass by Darth Talon, Darth Maul and a room filled with even more drool-worthy Star Wars collectibles.
Seriously, you can't even get a Star Wars experience at Disneyland this luxe, comfortable or private. The lighting is absolutely perfect. And four of the seats are on hydraulic lifts that move with the movie action, delivering a multisensory experience.
It's like if the Death Star had its own movie theater
It's OK to relax and lounge in the front row: Chewie and Boba Fett will keep an eye on the entrance in case the Empire tries to interrupt your next viewing of Return of the Jedi on the theater's 19-foot screen.
How's this for a mind-blowing feature: The mansion also has a pool that snakes inside the home.
Even more mind-blowing: The pool doubles as a water reservoir in case of emergency. The home is designed to be resistant to an EMP attack, in fact, and is self-sufficient off the grid for up to a year.
This mansion truly is an indoor-outdoor home. Can you imagine walking back inside this room on a cold SoCal winter day (just under 60 degrees, brr!), sitting down at your piano and tinkling the melody to the Imperial March by a roaring fire, presumably started by one of your many butlers?
Here's an overhead look at the backyard of the 2.95-acre property. We don't know who your immediate neighbor would be in this gated community, but the town of Hidden Hills is home to loads of high-profile celebrities, including Drake.
