Property description
This estate truly captures a moment in time when architects, builders, artists, and craftsmen came together to create a beautiful work of art. Elements of the historic past have been refined by the ultimate restoration and integrated with luxurious necessities. The architecture suggests European influences, with newer structures expanding living space encompassing day and night activities. Inviting foyer envelops a curved staircase accented with elaborate wrought iron and an ethereal ceiling mural. Foremost, the living room emphasizes the finest design features of the period, beginning with a curved ceiling with cove lighting and richly glazed walls and gold leaf accents. Significant millwork was completely refurbished, inlaid wood floors and four fabulous sets of French doors, all with releaded glass. The banquet dining room with oak floors and the dramatic ceiling is emphasized by a mural by Nicola Vigini and the added beauty of a bronze and alabaster Steuben glass chandelier. Doors from the living room and dining room extend the hospitality to a Solarium, alive with natural light and views to the grounds featuring lush landscaping and pool. The flooring offers a burst of color and pattern with handmade Redondo, tile in a bordered geometric pattern. Double front doors open to a veranda and secluded lawn. A spectacular kitchen not only works as a daily dining spot but a gathering place for family and friends. The Mission style and Art Deco influences were captured in the new cabinetry and millwork with quarter sawn oak and leaded glass inserts, and blue motion. A grand breakfast bay offers upholstered booth seating with storage; nearby is a planning desk featured cabinetry and a powder bath connects to the foyer. The second floor offers excellent personal space, with multiple treetop views that continue to downtown and the Tower, as well as the lush landscaping and pool. The center hallway ends in the master suite with mock balcony views to the pool or town, two closets and a grand Carrera marble bath with details reminiscent of the ’20s. Included is a glass door shower, split dual pedestal sinks and a built-in vanity with soft natural light. Storage is expanded with a reclaimed attic closet off the hallway for seasonal wardrobe, storage as well as a creative dressing room. Terraces of Pennsylvania blue stone surround the saltwater pool with dual fountains emphasized in the evening with outdoor lighting. Entertainment options include an outdoor kitchen with a sink and wood burning pizza oven, as well as an accommodating copper shower and Spanish influence locker room with half bath constructed of Spanish cedar. The pool is framed on one side by the romantic porches of the casita, which also includes a kitchenette with a wet bar. The vaulted open space with track line lighting provides the ultimate in entertainment options, ideal for an office, gym, parties, and play. Easy access from poolside or the residence make it a year-round attraction for resort living. A unique vintage feature of the home is the attached porte-cochere with cast stone embellishments an automatic wrought iron gate, plus a protected entrance door to the home. The driveway passes through to a spacious parking court along the side of the casita adding to its activity options and ends at the rear garage. Recently constructed, the separate 2-car garage includes both an artist loft, sliding screen doors and transoms for weather control.
