THIS MAGNIFICENT PROPERTY IS A TRIUMPH OF NEOCLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE in the authentic Colonial Revival style. Built in 2011 by Forde Mazzola, with design by award-winning Charlie Barnett and Associates, the home has been prominently featured in Architectural Digest with acclaim to interiors by Miles Redd of New York City. The pedigreed property combines time-honored, beautifully proportioned elegance with imaginative touches in unexpected places. The result is a charm and vitality that is tasteful grandeur calibrated for modern living.

The main residence spans three levels and almost 11,500 square feet comprising 6 bedroom suites. Today’s work-from-home needs are easily accommodated with two executive offices, one in the residence and one detached for absolute privacy.  A tremendous recreation room, cinema, fitness center, and customized wine cellar, along with two family rooms and a solarium, round out the main residence.

Poolside, and privately positioned at the rear of the approximately 1.5-acre lot, is a fully equipped 1-bedroom, 2-bath guest house. Impressively tying it all together are heritage oaks and sumptuous gardens and outdoor living spaces designed by Elizabeth Everdell, San Francisco.
