The living room is perfect for entertaining, warmed by a beautiful wood-burning fireplace with limestone hearth and enjoys eight large picture windows that open the room to views of the front gardens and redwood forests.
The exquisite, modern kitchen includes a Viking professional range with a custom Miele hood, Viking double oven, Subzero refrigerator, wine refrigerator, and custom fir, steel and glass cabinets. The Ceasar stone island and countertops provide both a great prep space and informal seating. Huge picture windows behind the sink and breakfast nook overlook the back gardens and pool.

The ultimate attractions are the grounds that have been developed through the years by the owners. The gorgeous natural setting sets the stage but the gardens have evolved and matured into something truly wonderful. Arcades of different species of maples, over 100 roses bushes, an abundance of flowering shrubs, ornamental grasses, and fruit trees are all framed by the towering redwood forest. Secret gardens, grape arbor, wandering paths, meandering creek , pool with waterfall and spa, and deck with fire pit and barbeque area all add to the appeal of this special property.
