Surrounded by eight botanical garden-quality acres with hundreds of lush date palms, specimen trees, pines and rose gardens, its four structures and two magnificent pavilions are a setting for life at its richest. In the six-bedroom main residence, large windows welcome panoramic views inside. High ceilings and stone archways, unique fireplaces, hardwood floors and granite surfaces embody the European ambience, from the open kitchen to the ground floor master suite. A comfortable thirteen-seat movie theatre with upholstered suede walls and a live performance stage offers a setting to entertain your most discerning guests. The path leading to the two-bedroom guest house features an Ashler pattern Ramon Gold stone fountain and Linen Flagstone steps. A hundred-year-old Indian door opens to lovely, comfortable accommodations, warmed by a ceiling made of timbers from a Washington state railroad bridge, a 17th-century French fireplace and 18th-century French Borgogne pavers. Orange, grapefruit and lemon trees surround the guesthouse with their intoxicating scents. Below the guesthouse, a winding underground path with Israeli stone walls and candlelit sconces leads the way to a two-lane bowling alley and game room with computer-controlled scoring. Custom mahogany flooring, hand-carved black walnut pub furniture and an entry paved in flagstone from the streets of Yorkshire, England, set the tone. The ceiling is French Parfeuille, a brick used as insulation in European wine cellars. Life in this world revolves around the spectacular outdoor living pavilion with its resort-style pool, poolside cabana/bar area, outdoor Buddha bar and lounge with fire/water feature, fully equipped outdoor barbecue, and fire pit fashioned from a 300-year-old stone millwheel. The dining area overlooks a glorious view of the palm court framed in roses. In the astonishing European-inspired spa pavilion, collapsing walls open to the glorious gardens and azure sky. Amenities include his/hers baths and showers enriched by custom hand-shaped basketweave limestone, marble and travertine.
