A sanctuary with complete isolation from guests was paramount for designing this main house and carriage house. The Cape Dutch-influenced architectural style visually defines the elements of this compound with an appealing metal gate, mature olive trees, plants accentuating the pathways and a covered walkway to the bungalows and garage.

Lofty ceilings, beautiful structural wooden trusses, and matched with oversized windows emphasize the spacious interior living space from the white marble kitchen counters, cooking alcove, and island to the white plaster walls.

The master suite has a cozy patio enclosure with views to an impressive stone-framed fountain with brass curvilinear waterspout fixtures. The symmetry of the design along with the natural patina on the metals mirror the pale green tiles within the fountain.

This art aficionado has filled the residence with an art collection of exemplary contemporary Russian academy-trained artists viable since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The array of works from these artists span from the 1940s to the 1990s and accented by the homeowner’s old-world antiques. Sheltered within a visually appealing and well-crafted architectural solution are these unique possessions.
