2 estate gates create an exceptional feeling of privacy, tranquility and sophistication. This is emphasized in the main house by an elegant blend of Mediterranean architecture from the South of France, Spain and Morocco, including a bell-campanile frontispiece, scrolled archways and a terracotta tiled roof.
An entry courtyard with dramatic glass and wrought iron custom doors leads into an airy stone-tiled anteroom, separating the living and dining rooms. The large, wrought iron chandeliers along with all the interior and exterior sconces were custom made for the residence.
Beautiful Jerusalem Gold limestone floors are throughout the house, with hardwood floors in the living room, dining room, office, and carpeted bedrooms.
Control your indoor environment with radiant heat and 3 indoor fireplaces. Central air conditioning for summer months and 2 outdoor fireplaces for cool evenings in the loggia or on the terrace.
The grand salon, warmed by an elegant 17th century French stone mantelpiece, is a virtual greenhouse within the house, with large arch-top windows and doors on three sides that bring nature inside.
The kitchen features an enormous custom marble dine-in island. Double ovens, a chef’s range, and a massive chimney-style stone hood with a porthole window add to the kitchen’s functionality. A cozy dining/kitchen atrium offers a casual setting within the kitchen. The butler’s pantry, including a sink and extra dishwasher, is ideal for use as a satellite bar when entertaining.
Three bedrooms are distributed around the mission/hacienda-style interior courtyard for comfortable single-story floor plan living. The spacious primary bedroom suite, with direct access to a private courtyard and to the jacuzzi and pool, features a cozy fireplace, cool stone-colored walls, a large walk-in closet, a spacious bathroom with double sinks, a generous soaking bathtub, and an Italian-style open shower with Moroccan tiles. The suite also features a bonus room initially designed for a sauna but used as an exercise room.
Separate from the main house, the guest cottage features a large open floor plan with a breakfast kitchen. The oversized bathroom will greet you with a comfortable clawfoot tub, shower stall, and contemporary glass vanity.
Expansive, light stone patios surround the main house, seamlessly transitioning from indoor to outdoor, virtually doubling the living space. The interior courtyard features a stonewall fountain with a large al fresco dining area protected from most winds.
The outdoor entertaining center is right off the kitchen. You and your guests will love the Roman pool with infinity waterfall edge, a stand alone jacuzzi, a large gas fire pit and a custom-built Mugliani wood burning pizza/bread oven with an outdoor barbecue & rotisserie station. All this surrounded by the orchard with citrus, plums, peaches, and fig trees. The large dedicated rose and the cutting garden will provide flowers most of the year.
