20 gorgeous photos of a $5 million California mansion claiming to have one of the longest pools in the world

Courtesy of UpSpring PRThe infinity-edge pool is designed to overlook the Pacific Coast for optimal views of California’s sunsets.

Escondido Estate is secretly its own resort.

Sitting on over 18 acres of Escondido, California’s Paint Mountain, the home boasts picturesque views of the Pacific Coast among its extensive list of amenities — including the 286-foot-long swimming pool that runs through the property.

The home’s original owner was an inventor, investor, and physician. He custom-built the mega-mansion with materials imported from countries like Brazil, Scandinavia, Jamaica, Australia, Germany, Italy, and our northern neighbours the Canadians.

Platinum Luxury Auctions is managing the sale in cooperation with listing agent K. Ann Brizolis of K. Ann Brizolis & Associates. The auction will take place September 19, and bidding starts at a mere $US5 million for a resort-style pool, theatre, fitness center, two living rooms, and a separate two-bedroom guest house.

The mansion's executive chef's kitchen has a separate prep area and a two-story pantry. It includes Viking and Wolf appliances, a marble kitchen table with a built-in Lazy Susan, and a Teppanyaki table like you would find at a hibachi restaurant.

The formal dining room tables revolves on an electronic floor, so you and your guests can gaze out of the floor-to-ceiling walls. Deciding if the room is spinning or if you drank too much wine just got infinitely more difficult.

We can't fathom a better way to watch a Southern California sunset than floating in the water with a glass of red or a scotch.
