One enters the property through the privacy door onto one of 2 grand piazzas overlooking the expansive garden. Once inside the home you will be drawn into the light filled rooms with soaring ceilings, museum quality wood finishes and grand proportions.

The detached 3 car garage and guest house provides flexibility for use as a gym, pool house and/ or a mother-in-law suite.

Beyond its architectural and historical significance, is the expansive .68 acre park like setting with spectacular gardens, pool, hot tub, and gazebo.
