Grand rooms and garden vistas work together to create a serene and majestic setting. The metal framed wrought iron front door opens to a grand foyer. The expansive living room, adorned with a gorgeous hand sculpted fireplace, bar, and high ceilings with custom fresco by Claudio Sgaravizzi, is outlined by an array of arched French doors creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor.The impressive dining room with a Juliette balcony, Venetian Murano glass windows and a stunning starry sky â€œdi sotto in sÃ¹â€ fresco on the high ceiling, enjoys the same views. The gourmet kitchen offers elegant wood custom cabinets,center island, granite counters, copper sink, and high-end appliances. The family room opens to a stunning terrace overlooking the swimming pool. The intimate library/office has intricate Venetian boiserie inspired details. The bottom floor also offers a quaint guest suite. The grand staircase with its unique wrought iron banister leads to four suites, an office and a theater. The master suite which offers a fireplace, dual bathrooms and walk-in closets, a veranda and views of the lavish grounds, exudes romanticism.

The estate also features multiple terraces, a splendid arched beamed ceiling loggia with skylight and a Moroccan inspired sitting area, manicured gardens, gorgeous plants, a resort-like swimming pool and spa, gym, sport court, and a playground. Across the pool is a private connoisseur's retreat with a downstairs game/tasting room and a 1,000 bottle wine cellar.
