Last on the market when Eisenhower was President, this has been home to one family that lived, loved, and absolutely thrived here for over 50 years. Since its location at the crest of Imperial Drive is so ideal, they simply created their dream home of over 3500sf here on this view lot of almost 12,000sf.
The entry is a grand two story affair with a hand made mahogany staircase and a gorgeous checkerboard marble floor. The living and dining rooms are both formal and inviting with custom wood trim and a stately fireplace. The kitchen is bright with a large separate breakfast room. Off the kitchen is the family room that the owners refer to as their “London Room” complete with a very tasteful pub, fireplace, custom dark wood trim and a wall of glass overlooking the spectacularly pampered Japanese garden with flowing stream and waterfall. This ground level also has two large bedrooms with their own baths.
Upstairs is a master retreat of over 1,100 square feet with a large master bedroom, a huge master bath with imported marble floors and counters and a simply opulent spa tub overlooking a tranquil view. The master closet deserves its own mention, or I should say the five master closets that surround a dressing lounge that would be the envy of any silver screen heroine. There is also a more conservative gentleman’s dressing area complete with a discreet wet bar.
And then there is the garage – designed and built to house four Rolls Royce’s in perfect aplomb with a two toned tiled floor, and vaulted wood ceiling, and lots of room for spare parts and other storage. And of course a garage this grand has to have a large basement for the proper storage of wines. There is more you will notice as you and yours make an appointment to visit this special home.
