Whoa. Color has a distinct place in this artsy abode, and the outside is no exception: forgetting the verdant surroundings, moderate shades of burgundy and gold also cover parts of the home’s exterior.
Inside, bursts of vibrant hues spring at random from certain rooms (see the red dining room in the gallery). But the attractive interior is also thanks in part to master artisans who designed the pervasive wood and metal work. Venetian plaster walls are also present.
The light-friendly living room has thirty-foot ceilings and one high wall is currently furnished with a large painting. The black fireplace and simple wood floors add a nice contrast.
Culinary artists can take advantage of the two "professional kitchens," at least one of which is known to have an oven wall and pretty oven backsplash. And if you need an office space, there's the second-floor "floating" study.
The master bathroom has handcrafted tiles, along with steam and rain forest spray modes in the shower. Other perks include a substantial wine cellar that can hold 3,500 bottles, a swimming pool, decks throughout, a Crab Apple grove, and proximity to dining and shopping.
