It's easy to perfect the art of living when you live within a work of art. The timeless appeal of handcrafted ironwork, plaster walls, mahogany doors, imported tile, Spanish styled architectural details and gleaming old growth hardwood floors sets the stage for a life well lived.

A privacy wall encloses the double lot property, and lush mature tropical landscape supports the extensive outdoor entertaining areas that flow seamlessly from the spacious and light-filled interior rooms. Tastefully updated with modern additions over time the home features a spacious wide open kitchen and casual dining area with breakfast bar, charming butler's pantry and friend's entrance on one end and on the other, floor to ceiling windows and doors giving access to the pool, loggia, fountain, gazebo and greenery beyond.
