Upon entry into a 2-story foyer, the home’s classic, enduring design presents itself in the beamed ceilings, brilliant tiling, custom iron work, and arched passageways seen throughout. The thoughtful floor plan invites an abundance of natural light into the open-concept main floor featuring a stately library with wood paneled walls and fireplace; dining room; and dual living spaces that flow with ease to an expansive terrace and the gourmet’s kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, La Cornue range, and butler’s pantry.
