Welcome to the storied neighborhood where a glamorous Mediterranean estate evokes the classic sophistication of classic architecture. Originally built in 1928 and extensively renovated and expanded in 2002 under the direction of architect, Richard Manion, this two-story 8,500 square foot home is surrounded by luscious green lawns and gardens. The residence is beautifully proportioned and elegant.
Gated at the front, one enters this home through a majestic stone courtyard and fountain creating a dramatic sense of arrival. Double glass wrought iron doors open into a gallery with limestone floors, crown moldings and rich finishes. A bright and spacious step down formal living room with high ceilings and an oversized 300 year old French Burgundy fireplace entertains perfectly and is matched by a warm family room with detailed wood paneled walls, marbled bar, walnut walk-in wine room and tall French doors that overlook a stone courtyard and fountain. A chefs kitchen with all of the state-of-the-art appliances and a teak center island juxtaposed a delightful informal dining area.
A circular wrought iron staircase and distressed hardwood floors leads you upstairs. The master suite is uber luxurious and expansive with a wonderfully appointed bathroom, oversized walk-in and overlooking the lush backyard. Three additional family sized bedrooms and office and gym complete the upstairs. Other features include: large formal dining room, library, playroom, maid’s quarters, two-story guest house, pool, outdoor kitchen and dining area, laundry room, three car garage and a large grassy back yard.
