Interlocking wings form public & private rooms, public lower gardens & private upper terrace with verdant canyon views. The great room occupies the focal level for dining, cooking and entertaining around the steel hearth with fugitive flat screen. All opens to patio & greenscape. The more private, 3-level wing provides 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths including the master wing which opens to a second-story, outdoor living room with fireplace and garden. Dark teak floors, soapstone and Calcutta marble countertops, sheer aperture doorways, oversized garage. Energy from the sun, nearby beach and a little Ain.
