Designed and built by renowned architect Joe Brennan and craftsman Kris Isberg. Signature features include 11 foot high ceilings, custom millwork, architectural details in curved walls and staircases. The dining room was built with large family gatherings in mind. The feature gas fireplace resembles a real fire and the large wall space is perfect for showcasing art pieces. Next to the dining room is a large living area with a walk-out to the private terrace and manicured garden. One will notice the floor-to-ceiling window and a fireplace that matches the one in the dining room.
