The Tuscan Villa inspired kitchen, updated in 2021, is an entertainer's dream with Sub-Zero and Viking stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, 13' x 6' imported granite island, six burner and griddle stove, three ovens plus a warming drawer, butler's pantry with wine fridge, endless cabinets for ample storage, and more. The open kitchen/family room with fireplace leads to a lush oasis in the city. The balcony leads to a professionally landscaped blue limestone patio with a fountain, lush gardens, an irrigation system, and a massive garage rooftop deck.
