Embrace the seclusion of this hillside storybook scene and the European villa that awaits. Originally built for composer Frank LaForge, this home has been masterfully renovated over the years, seamlessly blending original details with modern elements. The recent kitchen featuring an AGA stove, is evidence of the flawless transition between old and new. The glass enclosed atrium soars three stories high and invites the landscape into daily life. Host lavish parties in the palatial living room, or savor intimate evenings on the terrace, with a natural oasis as your backdrop. From antique beamed ceilings to stone pillars, custom fireplaces and original pipe organ, every detail has a story in this architectural masterpiece.
