Elegant Hilltop Villa perched on an over 30,000 sq.ft. lot overlooking stunning panoramic city and ocean views. Gated and private, this romantic estate was built in 1977 by architect Robert Offenhauser and has since been meticulously maintained and updated. A private driveway leads to the over-sized motorcourt with adjacent three-car garage and stately double-door entrance. The beautiful formal foyer with skylight leads to the spacious formal living room with fireplace and built-ins. Features throughout include soaring ceilings, parquet hardwood floors, and walls of glass that open to the lush grounds. There is a grand formal dining room and the gourmet kitchen has been recently updated with professional appliances, granite countertops, butcher-block island with breakfast bar, and adjoining breakfast room. The private master suite is complete with fireplace, walk-in closet, and spacious marble bath. There are three additional bedroom suites and a guest apartment located above the garage with private entrance, living room, full kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The romantic backyard offers great space for entertaining with a wonderful outdoor living room, dining pergola, pool, and lawn all overlooking the shimmering city views.
