Set on over nine acres of land, the exclusive grounds with a gated entry feature a plethora of gardens, a large terrace and well-designed, heated in-ground pool with a pool house. The stately exterior inspires opulence and offers a preview of the elegance of the interior, which features luxurious design reminiscent of Marie Antoinette’s France.

The guest house features two bed rooms, kitchen, living areas and wine pantry. The glass house includes a two story living area with a wall made almost completely of glass. Lastly, the tea house includes a veranda and greenhouse. The grounds include gorgeous manicured gardens, a heated infinity pool and cabana, koi pond and private beach.
