“No neighbors in sight,” says the property listing, an invitation to immerse oneself in the sensation of complete privacy offered by this two-acre estate.

The 6-bedroom home boasts 7-full and 2-half baths and features “beautiful ornate stone, stucco and woodwork inside and out throughout,” according the the listing. Built in 2013, the property welcomes anyone stepping through the front door with the vision of double floating staircases in the entry foyer, with a bridge wrapped in custom wrought iron rails. Herringbone wood and marble floors are featured throughout the house.

“Entertainer’s Dream” is how the listing begins, and one can see why beginning in either the theater or the game room, which features dark wood walls and floors, juxtaposed by the marble slab white fireplace, one of two in the house.
