4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, gourmet chef's kitchen, 25-foot high ceiling entertainment room, French doors, custom walnut joinery and custom tiling, walk-in fireplaces, matching spiral staircases, infinity pool (19' x 45' / 5.8 x 13.7 meters).
Entrance and GREAT Room
Entry to the house is from the north-west across a small courtyard with custom tiling. The large scale custom designed walnut front doors open into the Great Room with its 25-foot high beamed ceiling, two walk-in fireplaces and dual spiral staircases providing access to the upper floor. This grand room allows gracious dining and spectacular entertaining while French doors open to the outside patio and the infinity pool.
Just beyond lies an infinity swimming pool that overlooks your own piece of paradise providing southerly vistas of mountains ranges and vineyards.
GOURMET CHEF's KITCHEN
On the west end of the house and directly off the Great Room is the gourmet chef's kitchen. Viking and Miele appliances, a large center island with sink and bar stool sitting, granite countertops, custom walnut cabinetry throughout. A fireplace, a cozy eating area and informal lounge area provide the perfect spot for less formal occasions. The room has views of the olive grove orchard and opens up to the outside patio and pool area.
