Indoors: A gate and tall hedges shelter this property from the street, creating a private front yard landscaped with succulents.
The double doors at the entrance open into a bright foyer with terrazzo-tile floors that continue into a sunken living room with floor-to-ceiling windows facing the patio and swimming pool. A three-sided stone fireplace separates the living room from a dining room with more floor-to-ceiling windows. Behind this space is an updated kitchen with a large center island and stainless steel Viking appliances, including a double wall oven.
The primary suite is on the other side of the house, off a hallway extending from the foyer. The bedroom has more terrazzo-tile floors and expansive windows, as well as sliding-glass doors that open to the pool area. The bathroom has terrazzo-tile floors, a shower lined with blue tile and sliding-glass doors that open to a private patio with an outdoor shower.
Two more bedrooms are off the hallway. One is currently used as a den and media room; the other has an en suite bathroom and a private patio.
