Entering through a 160-year old iron gate from a European monastery, you will experience this one-of-a-kind Victorian estate that has the finest woodwork and attention to detail that you may ever see. With construction updates completed in 2011 by a master builder of Rancho Santa Fe homes, this 5-floor home is an entertainer’s delight. It has a 1100 sq ft wrap-around veranda, fabulous Victorian gardens, a large gazebo with fire pit, a lovely mosaic tile pool and built-in BBQ area ideal for outdoor living.When you tour this magnificent custom-built Queen Anne Victorian home, you will marvel at the attention to detail. From the 160-year old iron entry gates to the hand laid slate roof all the way down to the stunning antique light fixtures and even doorknobs from an 1850’s hotel in Chicago, this home is spectacular. Entering through the formal entry, you can sit by the fire in the parlor area, join a game of Billiards in the downstairs family room (with its own wet bar and custom fireplace), or spend time relaxing on the veranda overlooking grassy knolls with large shade trees, Victorian gardens, the custom pool, and the gazebo. The cook’s kitchen has a vintage stove, two ovens, an island, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a walk-in pantry, two dishwashers and a separate eating area with French doors that lead to the veranda.
