The lowdown: This storybook home offers all the splendor of yesteryear with today's comfort and amenities. Stained glass windows add a touch of Old World charm, complemented by the dining hall's 19-foot center-peak cathedral ceilings that are accented with exposed wood beams, a pair of wrought iron chandeliers, a limestone fireplace, and slate floors.
The gourmet kitchen also has wood-beamed ceilings, along with a butler's pantry, granite counters, marble backsplash, breakfast bar, Viking appliances, and double sinks, all overlooking the backyard and courtyard. Lush landscaping surrounds a pool with waterfall and spa, the outdoor kitchen, and gated grass yard.
The owner's retreat is upstairs and features — you guessed it — more center-peak cathedral ceilings (this time 23 feet high), along with a cast stone fireplace, coffee bar, walk-in closet, winter closet, hobby room, and balcony. Three of the secondary bedrooms are also upstairs, with another bedroom down boasting its own ensuite bath and private living space with outdoor access. The property's casita has a studio room, mini kitchen, and bath, while a second apartment has a gym, bath, and loft bedroom.
