Amenities included six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a foyer with marble floors, two vast sitting areas, a floating mahogany staircase leading to an exquisite grand salon, all with dramatic ceilings over 20 feet high. The gourmet kitchen featured a two story ceiling with a double-sided fireplace. The spacious family room boasted dramatic French doors leading to the pool and terrace. The master bedroom was 4,000 sq. ft. … final asking price was $3,695,000.
