Set just up the hill from the Palos Verdes Country Club the home's outside features a private front greeting courtyard and a shady loggia, an entertainer’s backyard with a kitchen area, balustrade view terraces, a tennis court, a lilied koi pond, an outdoor curtained casita, a stone walking path, and space for a small vineyard. Entering the home through its 2 story groin vault custom painted ceilings that lead into an arced cathedral foyer you will find the home boasts 6 Bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a billiard style family room, an arcade room, with a kitchen/bar, a wine cellar, a professional gym, a dry sauna, a steam shower, 2 offices, a library, a home theater, and 8 fireplaces - one of which is a 17th Century French Imported hearth - set on the outside patio overlooking the Poseidon mosaic-tiled pool - this is a MUST SEE HOME in an UNMATCHED LOCATION!
