No expense has been spared in this breathtaking artist's residence set amid lush trees with views to Catalina Island. Exotic and contemporary, expanded and thoughtfully upgraded throughout, this rare property breathes grace and serenity. From the unsurpassed, elegant home theatre to the chef's kitchen and gardens, the current owners have absolutely mastered the art of living. Known as "La Serre," neighbors gather for engaging dinner parties here on a regular basis. Sometimes they begin in the hidden wine tasting room and cellar, others times on the large deck while enjoying stunning nightly sunset views. Walks are enjoyed along the paths of the vegetable & herb garden lined by sweet scented citrus and pomegranate trees. An ancient California pepper shades the elegant stone terrace with a classic wall fountain. A soothing waterfall spills into a koi pond which can be enjoyed from a covered outdoor space from which to relax and appreciate the magical oasis that is "La Serre."
