As you enter the private iron gates onto the lush grounds of this tranquil home, you feel the calming beauty of a soothing water-feature and a classic stone sculpture of Kuan Yin. This private and peaceful estate is set amid manicured lawns, water features, yard sculptures, fragrant rose gardens, and an orchard. The natural beauty surrounding the home's pool terrace creates the heart of this spectacular house. A waterfall from the spa cascades into the indigo-colored saline pool, and the entire pool area is enhanced by serene ocean, mountain, and garden views. In addition, this property boasts a second lap-pool with fountain and very private... patio.
Inside, the Living room is spacious and open with skylights that flood the main living areas with an abundance of light. A comfortable sectional sofa is centered around the large flat-screen TV, and a full wet-bar makes for effortless entertaining.
