Crowning a hilltop in Palos Verdes, an enchanting estate soaks in sea air and unobstructed panoramic ocean views. Czechoslovakian wrought iron doors welcome visitors to the many artistic surprises just inside this home. Custom designed by architect Ardeshir Nozari, the timeless style captures the essence of European design. The draping gardens, and lush trees, highlight the elegantly cut stone exterior. Beautifully shaped pavers patterned in the circular drive, and singing fountains, further invite one to experience this seaside estate. The main floor has a palatial quality with it's impressive rotunda entry flanked by cloisters and colonnade-style hallways. Countless glass French doors support an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Built for the entertainer, the main floor hosts a formal living room with a drawing room ambiance. The space boasts intricately patterned hardwood floors, a 17th century hand-carved stone wood burning fireplace and cleverly connects to a regal study, or a room that, as if plucked from another era, would be ideal for a gentleman's nightcap, and cigar, over a game of cards. With seating for 24 guests, the dining room offers artistic inspiration via a mural painted by the late fashion designer Gianni Versace’s personal artist. Before a dinner party, guests are sure to delight in aperitifs from the gorgeous wet-bar trimmed in veneer panels of hammered gold, reminiscent of a Parisian brasserie. Built to transcend time, this masterpiece is an absolute classic.
