The lowdown: This Charles Tapley-designed home is one of a kind, majestically situated on a private ravine acre in a coveted neighborhood. One of its most impressive features is the two-story wall of windows that fills the home with natural light.
The large, open rooms boast 10 and 12-foot ceilings, and are ideal for grand entertaining. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout provide views of the lush private grounds, which include a sparkling, 50-by-16-foot swimming pool that can also be viewed from the kitchen and den. Speaking of the renovated gourmet kitchen, it features dual islands with counter seating and double ovens.
The second-floor master suite also features walls of windows, though this time they lead to a private terrace. A tennis court is available, and there's even an electric car charging outlet in the garage.
