The French and Mediterranean-style themed 20-acre compound that includes 11 bedrooms and 14 full baths across a total of 43,000 square feet of living space. There is a 128-foot infinity pool, where parts of Britney’s video were shot. Pat Nesbitt even created a spot to view tournaments from underwater, as he said: “The infinity pool actually has windows in it. So if you wanted to watch a polo match in scuba gear, you can do that.” The below photo is of the main residence in the foreground and 10-acre grassy polo field in backyard. This is the same breathtaking view we had as we watched the Polo Match and the Fashion show. You are able to look all the way south down the coast, to see the ocean, mountains and trees:
The fashion show started from the terrace of main residence, with the models starting there and walking down a beautiful arched staircase, and then across the whole side of the infinity pool. Below is a photo of the same view that the models and we had at the starting point of the fashion show. We had a breathtaking view of the polo field from the terrace of the main residence:
