The majestic iron gates of this enchanted hilltop estate have forever intrigued and fascinated the world outside. The sumptuous landscape beyond seems almost unreal, too beautiful to imagine. Jasmine perfumes the air while century-old trees and stately palms provide a sheltered haven of nearly two magical acres. Instantly one is transported into a gentle world of romance and seclusion where nature provides a complete environment. A long private drive leads to one of three generous motor courts and the grand French Manor residence, peerlessly designed and crafted in 1925 by architect Sumner Hunt, and recently restored by renowned designer Thomas Beeton, combining both thoughtful authenticity and contemporary flair. A magnificent entry hall with imported limestone and inlaid marble floor, double crown moldings, and subtle coffered paneled ceiling highlight the welcoming Camelot. Beyond is an elegant living room with floor-to-ceiling glass-paned French doors, Versailles pattern oak floor, and imposing stone fireplace. A palatial dining room becomes the centerpiece for gracious gatherings with glass casement doors leading to both garden terraces and a sensational glass-enclosed conservatory surrounded by a casual outdoor living room with fireplace and courtyard fountain. A luxurious family room with stone fireplace and beam ceiling, private office, and superb center-island chef’s kitchen complete the first-floor amenities. The grand staircase leads to a second level providing four expansive en-suite bedrooms—three with a fireplace—including a lavish master wing with separate sitting area, romantic terrace, and elegant double bath suites. Additionally, there is a secret third-story play area that children will treasure. Outside, towering trees, specimen cutting gardens, a large professional greenhouse, two charming, self-contained guest cottages, a two-story spa-inspired pool pavilion with fireplace, vaulted beam ceiling, and wet bar, and a spectacular swimmer’s pool bestow breathtaking beauty on a cherished, captivating landscape.
