Antique terra cotta tiles from Italy, reclaimed church doors imported from Mexico, and plaster walls painted by a team from San Miguel de Allende are just a few of the authentic finishes in this irreplaceable estate. Details abound from stone grating on windows, hand carved pillars, ornate wood work, hand painted tiles, and elaborate ceilings. Multiple French doors allow for indoor/outdoor living as do two covered spaces featuring fireplaces and opening on to the large terrace delineated by a stone balustrade.

This unique 13,000 square foot residence has five bedroom suites plus an upstairs bonus room with two additional bedrooms and a full bath. Accommodating both intimate gatherings and extensive entertaining, the floor plan includes a show stopping front entry, a dramatic formal dining room, and a classically elegant living room as well as a comfortable family room with adjacent 7-seat theater.

The kitchen features exquisite cabinetry, dual Viking appliances, separate catering kitchen, and a breakfast bar. It opens to a hearth room with a lounge area, fireplace, and wine refrigerator and expands out to a charming, trellis covered patio. A true retreat, the master consists of three spaces including a sitting room, wood paneled office, sleeping area with fireplace, and a well-appointed master bathroom with separate amenities.
