Encompassing approximately 11,605 square feet, the residence features a formal living room, oversized formal dining room, library, office, sitting room, media room and wine cellar. The gourmet chef’s kitchen has high-end stainless-steel appliances, a large island with three sinks, and a bright and cheerful breakfast room with walls of glass on two sides that open to the pool area.

The main house features six bedroom suites, including a sizable master suite with a gym, office, two bathrooms and a fireplace, as well as separate staff quarters.
