Newly Offered at $5,390,000
It is hard to believe this incredible property is still on the market. This country retreat is beautifully nestled onto 6.34 acres offset by a full horizon view of the Pacific Ocean to the south and dynamic mountain expanse to the north.  This impeccably restored home was designed by Willard Francis, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, in the modernist style of architecture. All of the original details have been restored or rebuilt. The western wing of the one story includes a gracious living room with an adjacent formal dining area, an office, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, and a large optional bedroom/gym/media room with ensuite bath. The eastern wing has three bedrooms, sitting room/office with fireplace, plus a large master suite with two large dressing rooms and master bath.  The property also includes a two bedroom guest house with office and a two car garage, as well as sprawling gardens with mature oaks, olives and an assortment of fruit trees, over two acres of avocado trees (serviced by an Ag meter). There are copious beds of seasonal flowers, abundant roses and vegetable gardens. Original stone patios are the inspiration for the well designed walkways which meander throughout the grounds.
