Magnificently conceived by architect Randal Stofft, with superlative interior design by Gil Walsh Interiors, and an up-lit tiered Renaissance garden by award-winning landscape architect David Font, this recently re-imagined residence enjoys a serene, elegant opulence.
The very scope impresses, beginning with the dramatic two-story entry foyer, complete with a butterfly-effect split staircase of intricate wrought iron, brass, and limestone. Venetian plaster with a hand-waxed finish adds depth and soft texture to the walls, while the deep coffered ceiling with its stately architectural millwork enhances the feeling of importance.
Utmost attention has been paid to every detail throughout the home, every layer creates more interest, from the rich wood paneled library, to the French Bordeaux wood inlay floors, the downstairs garden-view, secluded master suite and stunning Guatemalan marble walk-through steam shower in the partner master bathrooms.
The majestic formal living and dining rooms, family room, double island gourmet kitchen with top-tier Miele, Wolf, and Sub-Zero appliances are all superbly done. And yet, it is the unexpected intimate spaces that surprise: unique double powder rooms off of the entry foyer, a petite tete-a-tete salon adjacent to a splendid family room, a picturesque breakfast room, a cinematic private theater and more.
With a second level devoted exclusively to the VIP and four additional guest suites, an expansive upstairs covered terrace overlooking the pool and garden, a lavish poolside covered entertaining loggia with snack bar, this chateau affords a gracious entertaining lifestyle.
