Situated on one of The Strand's largest homesites, measuring nearly half an acre, this exquisitely designed classic Mediterranean villa offers breathtaking ocean panoramas and gorgeous Catalina Island sunsets. A circular drive and the only porte cochère entry in the community set the stage for the grand estate that awaits. Beyond the foyer, an expansive great room and chef's kitchen offer magnificent ocean views and a seamless transition to the spacious loggia for embracing the indoor outdoor lifestyle. Flowing from the great room, the formal dining room and living room create the perfect floor plan in which the majority of living takes place on the main level. Also located on the main level, the estate's ocean view master suite opens to an elegant veranda with direct access to the pool and spa. Constructed with the highest attention to detail and the finest finishes and fixtures, this spectacular 5 bdrm, 7.5 bath residence is reminiscent of the grand estates found in Italy. Additional highlights of this 3-level home include a Butler's kitchen, walk-in wine cellar, theater/ media room, dry sauna, and outdoor kitchen. Located in The Strand with resort-like amenities and a short stroll to the beach, this exquisite estate is beyond comparison.
