Walk through
​Located at 2212 Salisbury St., the residence begins with a gated entry courtyard with water feature and opens to a grand reception hall. Beyond is the ground-level media room, home office with sitting area and two bedrooms with baths. Throughout are designer touches, from the stone-tile flooring to the contemporary light fixtures to the walls of built-ins. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for an abundance of natural light.

The second-level landing is as inviting as the grand reception hall and leads to a large, open entertaining area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. A fireplace anchors the sitting area, while the dining table sits next to the custom kitchen with more built-ins. The chef of the house will find top-of-the-line appliances here, as well as a view of the lovely room — and the airy second-floor pool with its own water wall and tiled deck.

In total, the house has three bedrooms and two full and two half-baths.

The third floor opens to a wet bar inside and then outside, a rooftop terrace and dining table with outdoor fireplace. Dramatic open architecture elements define the terrace, which also incudes a sitting area with views of the neighborhood. An elevator takes owners to all three levels. A three-car garage is attached.
