Acres of trees, portions of which are protected as a Monarch Butterfly Reserve, surround the nearly one and one-half acre garden site, creating a feeling of living within a mature arboretum. The residence, designed in the 1950’s classic post & beam style by architect Hap Gilman, visually pulls the gardens into the living areas, evoking a quiet peace and sense of repose. The house is not all about nature though. The sophisticated living space affords plenty of room for art, books and collectibles. Includes: 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, plus maids and bath, 20 x 40 pool, oversized kitchen, exercise room, 3-car garage + carport parking all hidden behind gates down a private drive.
