Chris Valli and Jacqueline Thompson — widely renowned authorities when it comes to the complex and competitive niche marketplace that comprises coastal Orange County — came together to close the sale on 21 Boulder View, a gorgeous French Provencal Manor house located in Irvine’s highly exclusive Shady Canyon®. Offering a gracious living experience defined by quality and attention to detail, the property was on the market at just over $7 million.

Spanning three levels and encompassing five bedrooms along with eight bathrooms, a formal dining room with seating for twelve, a main home guest suite and a separate casita, the estate showcases panoramic canyon and golf course views. Complete with an outdoor fireplace/barbeque area, a pool with limestone troughs and genuine antique limestone wood-burning fireplaces, it promises endless possibilities when it comes to entertaining guests. And its understated elegance places it among the most exquisite homes behind Shady Canyon’s coveted gates.
