Welcome to this historic 1915 architectural treasure that has been renovated with no space overlooked. This is the home of a celebrated decorator & is picture perfect throughout. The five bed, five bath, 4,720 SF gated estate includes a full carriage house & features exquisite finishes in every room.

You approach the home via a stately colonnade that leads you into the magnificent lower level w/ an elegant living room w/ custom built-ins, a Batchelder tile fireplace, a luxurious dining room, a gracious den or family room, as well as an en-suite bedroom. The stunning kitchen, w/ high end appliances including a La Cornue French range, has an adjoining breakfast room w/ a banquette, as well as an opulent butler’s pantry w/ rich, tall, wood, glass-fronted cabinets & a copper sink.

The expansive, light-filled 2nd story has a sumptuous master suite w/ French doors that open out to a Juliet balcony that offers sweeping views of the verdant front grounds with mature plantings& raised vegetable beds. The adjoining spa-like bath has a large, claw foot tub, a separate shower as well as honed marble surfaces. There are two more bedrooms on this level w/ a central bath and a sunroom retreat or playroom that looks out at the shade-dappled yard and treetop views.

There is also a rear veranda with an outdoor kitchen, that is an idyllic perch to view the terraced, dark bottomed pool& spa. This is an entertainer’s dream that offers a place for everything all under a cloak of privacy. It feels as if you have been transported to your favorite resort. Tucked at the back of the 23,074 square foot parcel, surrounded by the lush landscape, is a one bed guest house with a living space and an alluring bath, as well as a picture-perfect front porch. This is ideal to use as a separate office or for visiting friends and relatives.

There are incredible period details in every space, including hardwood floors, deep crown moldings, custom built-ins, handcrafted carpentry throughout, deep window seats, intricate woodwork, an elevator, a grand center staircase that connects the two floors with its solid craftsmanship & wide landings as well as a secondary back staircase.

This magnificent estate property that has been attributed (although not documented) to celebrated architect Elmer Grey and builder G. Lawrence Stimson, is one of the true great homes in our majestic foothill community.
