    Description

    Pass through the verdant hedge & be transported to an estate encapsulated with meticulously planned tropical gardens! Arched windows & crenelated ramparts of the former home & studio of noted sculptor Adrian Pillars do not prepare one for the grandeur & European romance of this compact estate with the detail of Hearst's San Simeon! The elegant leaded glass entry directs you to the drama within. Entering the bright, windowed foyer one first glimpses the glamour of a bygone era.Step then into an intimate parlor where you will pause to take in the magnificence of the two-story salon & a banquet of architectural delights. The double-width grand staircase (Italian-tiled with cypress balustrades; both original to the house) & a generous windowed landing lead to a balcony culminating at the front of the home as a spacious library. These accoutrements encircle the salon on 3 sides, leaving the 4th wall unadorned for art display.Punctuated throughout with etched & leaded glass windows & doors, the interior is flooded with light during all but the most inclement weather. During evening hours the drama is increased by lighting provided by 2 stately Venetian glass chandeliers with drop pendants suspended from the cypress-beamed ceiling above.From the salon you may sweep into the spacious, sunlit dining room accommodating 12 or more & graced by a working fireplace; or move through to the kitchen & breakfast area; or enter the rear garden through a full diamond-patterned, leaded glass door. All rooms on the first level are detailed with either leaded, diamond-paned or etched glass windows & doors, protected on the exterior with Lexan panes. Through these panes you will observe the pleasant glow of greenery beyond. For more intimate, less formal entertaining at the rear of the home is the striking game room, with a comfortable seating area & 2 tables for cards or for the enjoyment of less formal or late evening repasts. Ascending the grand staircase, you will find on the second floor the private owners suite, including his & hers closets, a dressing area, & bath with separate vanities, tub & shower. Also on this floor are 2 more suites with baths, all conveniently served by a compact kitchen. The third floor still awaits! Please see the attached full description of this remarkable property in Attachments, above, as well as detail on the layout & a brief biography on Adrian Pillars, the sculptor who was the original inhabitant!
