From the time you step onto the elegant covered entry veranda, with its rock-tile floor, rock columns, and rock wainscoting, you’ll see that no detail has been overlooked in the construction of the Monte Sereno Estate.
From the foyer, illuminated by a hand-crafted Archeo Venice chandelier, turn to the left and enter the formal area of the home, with the living room, dining room, and access to both the stairs and the elevator to the basement or second floor also graced by illumination from Archeo Venice chandeliers. The spacious office offers a quiet space for work along with a fitting atmosphere for serious business meetings. The formal living room is the perfect place for an afternoon tea or evening cocktails with business associates.
To the right you’ll find a more casual atmosphere, with a large family room and eating area.
Fireplaces in the family room, dining room, living room, and office add warmth and beauty, while their Feng Shui properties enhance fame and reputation for those who dwell within.
In keeping with best Feng Shui practices, work areas such as the office, kitchen, and laundry room are placed well away from the entry foyer and garages are located in the back of the house.
The spacious kitchen is any cook’s dream. From the gleaming granite counter tops, to the 6-burner Wolf range, to the Miele double oven and warming drawer, to the 36″ Miele refrigerator, to the prep sink and the Subzero refrigerated drawer in the island, every convenience is at hand. Abundant windows, both recessed and drop-down lighting, and gleaming white tile walls and cabinetry all work together to foster creativity and create a feeling of cheer and well-being.
Behind the kitchen, and with access to the back yard, you’ll find the laundry room and a small, separate kitchen. This “extra kitchen” is perfect for preparing a quick snack or tending to messier tasks such as canning.
The open family room/ family dining area offers access to the patio and pool area, as does one of the two en-suite bedrooms located on the main floor.
Not visible, but important for both comfort and energy savings, are industrial insulation in both exterior and interior walls, and weather resistant wood under the roof to keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter.
