This open floor plan home with white terrazzo floors has two living areas... the main living room and the step down groovy lounge that provides a great place for intimate conversations, to relax, watch a movie or read a book. These two areas are 'connected' by the unbelievably beautiful see-through gas fireplace from the mid-century. All living areas have jaw dropping mountain views.

The atrium also seats 8 people for eating under the stars or enjoying views of the palm trees.
The gourmet kitchen has stainless appliances and everything you need in a kitchen including pots, pans, dishes, trays., toaster, microwave, blender, coffee pot, and much more. The island offers 4 bar stools for people to keep you company while you cook or a casual place to eat.
It has four large bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, own flat screen TV, large closets, and each with access to the outside directly from the bedroom. The private outside access from each bedroom is very unique and is perfect for sitting outside for an early morning coffee or a late night drink, without disturbing the others in the house. Each bedroom has upscale, beautiful bedding...not you typical rental bedding! High thread count sheets, duvets, nice pillows, etc.
If you want a private pool with stunning views, you found the perfect house. The pool and spa were just resurfaced but great care went into saving the original 1964 pool tile. .The pool area has lots of comfortable seating for lounging or sitting. It also has a beautiful sculpture/fountain, stainless steel gas grill, fruit trees, umbrella and and the world's best pool floats. It is completely private and can't be seen by any neighbors.
