When entering the gate, one is greeted by lush landscaping and an architectural staircase leading to the main entry. The first floor offers a state-of-the-art, Carrera marble-adorned kitchen opening to the great room including the dining & indoor/outdoor living rooms, plus two spacious bedrooms and bath. The hardwood floors, over-sized windows, built-in shelving, plus indoor & outdoor fireplaces create this "home as art." Perched by itself on the upper level, a retreat - the luxurious master suite including a lavish bathroom, spacious walk-in closet, plus a generous outdoor area and spa.
