According to marketing materials, the compound backs up to a rock formation resembling an open hand, palm up. It  “adds to the uniqueness of the land,” the owner, Nicholas B. Jackson, said in a statement provided by Compass.

Records show Jackson bought the compound for $14 million in April 1998 He then collaborated with Robert Daniels, the architectural designer and luxury builder whose work includes six homes used on ABC’s “The Bachelor,” to transform the existing residence into “a one-of-a-kind authentic Spanish Hacienda.”

As Jackson put it, “The compound has it all.”

The main home has a church bell on the roof. A wood-carved entry door opens into the foyer with a high ceiling, a tiled staircase with a wrought-iron railing and an interior balcony.

Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room frame surrounding hill and mountain views.
