A tiled-central foyer entryway acts as the axis, leading guests to the gracious public spaces. In the east wing, a regal fireplace with found Batchelder tiles anchors the parquet wood floor living room with double-flanked doors that lead outdoors. Beyond, a powder room and dedicated office, great room or bedroom with 3/4 bath - backing to the rear yard. The west wing includes; breakfast room, kitchen, as well as coved Venetian plastered formal dining room with French doors that open to the sweeping front courtyard. An additional bedroom or study with an adjacent 3/4 bath completes the first floor. The upstairs also is divided into two wings - master suite with view patio and fireplace, his and hers bathrooms, ample closets and additional bedroom or office. The two bedrooms in the opposite annex mirror, with a full bath, fireplace and patio. Gracious side loggia opens to the expansive pool and lush landscaping, with rear private grounds beyond. Gated with a motor court and three car garage. An 1,854 square foot basement allows for an extensive wine cellar or gym. Fastidiously maintained.
