Designed for gracious living, this luxurious private sanctuary combines warmth, charm and elegance. Perched on a hillside on famed Upper Canyon Road, the walled and gated estate underwent a meticulous reconstruction, resulting in a singular home w/formal entertaining rooms; quiet quarters for restful repose; magnificent grounds that include an enticing swimming pool and hot tub, an open-air dining room; and impressive chosen landscaping. In scale and detail, the residence recalls a regal European manor perfect for the grandest of entertaining, but careful planning and a well-considered floor plan have created an inviting home affording serenity, seclusion, and relaxation. Replete with windows, the rooms are inextricably linked w/views and the landscape, and they have a graceful flow that extends naturally to the outdoors. Throughout, raised ceilings create an airy quality; hand-scraped walnut floors add to the formal sophistication; and murals and other hand-painted accents add a whimsical element.
