Boasting its own foyer, the private master suite with adjoining sitting room and wet bar offers a retreat away from it all. Enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking the beautiful pool and architecture of this fine estate.
The master bathroom was designed with pure luxury. Extensive use of marble, custom finished cabinets, his and her sink areas and corner jetted tub with fireplace are just the beginning. A focal point of the bathroom is the large shower with dual heads and multiple body sprays. Two walk in closets and a flexible space suitable for an exercise room, nursery or office round out this master retreat fit for a king or queen.
Exterior Details The grounds were designed with sustainability and symmetry in European style by Christopher Lines. The focal point is a dramatic raised arch and bridge with a running stream underneath. Four columns flank each side of the arch, and the entire scene is framed in Napa Valley Cast Stone balustrades, piers and urns.
The Pebble Tec lap pool is equipped with a bottom cleaning system and safety cover, and is flanked in perfect symmetry by two fully conditioned pool houses with large arbors, each boasting box beam ceilings and three sets of divided light double French doors. The north pool house with fireplace opens to the outdoor BBQ and kitchen area. The southerly pool house with full bathroom and Finnish sauna offers endless possibilities for guests and indoor/outdoor entertaining. The structures are finished on the interior in venetian plaster.
The separate spa is framed by two formal pools of water with multiple fountains and LED lights that dance on the water at night.
Huge potted citrus trees, arches lined with roses and strawberries, two large grassy areas, delightful Roman “ruins” and statuary throughout, custom fountains and real gas lamps (with safety shut off) make this property an entertaining bonanza. The entire property is irrigated with well water.
