Pass through a lantern-lit gate into a European-style garden surrounded by rustic stone walls echoing those within an intriguing Institute area residence, masterfully renovated with custom built-ins, opulent finishes and eye-catching fixtures. Lutyens inspired windows add dimension, most notably in the natatorium, where a glass roof furthers an indoor/outdoor ambiance. Soaring stone walls, lounge area with wet bar and fireplace invites poolside gatherings even in the chilliest months, while sculptural plantings and terraces beckon in summer. A coffered ceiling and walk-in limestone fireplace are defining features in the living room. The dining room glistens with a huge antiqued mirror panel reflecting a sun-drenched bay. Stone ochre-hued countertops extend from the chef's kitchen into a jewel-box butler's pantry. Five bedroom suites include an unforgettable master with lavish dressing room and custom wrought-iron balcony overlooking the pool.
