The drive also leads past, to a dynamic porte-cochere with entry into the informal areas and 6-car garage. For guests and visiting family, the brilliant reception area makes a stunning first impression for the nearly eight thousand square-feet of exquisitely detailed rooms that lie beyond.Magnificent hand-selected rose marble floors extend across the first floor, leading to a step-down living room with floor-to-ceiling Palladian windowed doors to the back terrace.

The wonderful music room/sitting room and the graceful paneled library bring together two more elegant conversation settings, each with distinctive fireplace and each connecting to the exquisite side veranda, ideal for summer entertaining. Throughout the main floor, there is a seamless connection to inviting outdoor living spaces.The grandeur is equally matched by an innovative renovation to the spacious kitchen featuring every imaginable gourmet appointment surrounded by rare Brazilian blue Bahia marble countertops and backsplash. Furniture-quality custom kitchen cabinetry topped by exquisite leaded glass Gothic style china cabinets are also found in the breakfast area with yet another door leading outside for a summertime barbeque followed by a refreshing swim.Through the gallery, commanding its own level, is the stunning family room, perfect for intimate gatherings.Ascending a magnificent circular staircase to an open balcony, is the master wing featuring an elegant master bedroom, doors to a private terrace, two expansive custom walk-in closets, a powder room, plus a luxurious marble master bath with Jacuzzi and steam shower.
