Cosmetics founder’s Shady Canyon estate is Irvine’s priciest listing at $50 million



A Shady Canyon mega-mansion owned by Joni Rogers-Kante, founder of the privately-held direct sales company Sene-Gence, has surfaced on the market for just under $50 million.

According to the Multiple Listing Service, the asking price makes it the most expensive home for sale in Irvine.

Within the 12,978-square-foot spread are seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and a board room with a teleconferencing audiovisual system.

The estate sits tucked behind double gates on more than a three-quarter-acre lot with 270-degree canyon and city light views.

A 10-foot-deep infinity-edge pool loaded with underwater speakers, in-pool loungers, a diving board, and a spa takes center stage in the backyard.

There’s an outdoor kitchen, poolside cabana and a fire pit conversation circle.

Back inside, a fireplace warms the master suite with its luxurious bathroom and two boutique-inspired walk-in closets. Glass doors open onto a large view deck.

Listing agent Tim Smith of Coldwell Banker Realty calls the home “an art piece unto itself.” Details include outdoor mosaic inlay and ornate millwork and custom ceiling murals by Andrew Tedesco Studio inside.

The gourmet kitchen opens to the family room and boasts a butler’s pantry, breakfast bar and breakfast nook.

Other amenities include a billiards and poker room with a wet bar, a 1,000-plus-bottle wine room, a gym, wet and dry saunas and a massage room.

Rogers-Kante and her husband, Sene-Gence chief strategy officer Ben Kante, bought the house in 2017 for $12.5 million, property records show.

The company develops and sells personal care and cosmetics, including the LipSense product line, worldwide.
