This extraordinary property combines all the charm and character of a historic, D’Alfonso-designed, Spanish-style home, with a beautifully updated and sophisticated, contemporary interior. The floor plan is open, with one light-filled room flowing into another. The spectacular, two-story Family Room includes a loft-level office and library. Picture windows frame views of the lovely, painterly landscaping - amazing to find such a private and peaceful garden, in the heart of the City! The garden was designed by a celebrated artist, and the compositions he created, of plant shapes and shades, are truly spectacular. French doors, from several rooms, lead out to a terrace that runs the full length of the house, with defined seating and dining areas and an outdoor kitchen, to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living. There are three bedrooms, including a magnificent master suite with a stunning, luxurious bathroom. The third bedroom and bath suite, situated on the lower floor, has a separate entrance, and makes ideal guest or caregiver's quarters.
Located in a quiet enclave of architecturally significant homes, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and cultural amenities, this is a rare and very special offering.
