Words that come to mind as you explore 1215 Mount Paran Road are elegant, glamorous, sophisticated and magnificent.  The home invokes a feeling of old Hollywood.  The estate is absolutely stunning and certainly pure luxury, but it is not overstated or showy.  It is simply dazzling.

The Georgian home is quietly chic from the outside with well-manicured lawn and hedges. The sumptuous green lawn provides a delightful contrast to the light exterior showing off the classic architecture.

Once inside, the curved wrought-iron railed staircase catches your eye in the double story foyer.  A staircase to the lower level curves in the opposite direction from the foyer, while a baby grand sits tucked into where the staircases meet in the custom painted space.
