Inside the 5,672-square-foot home, every detail is carefully considered, from the bright living room overlooking the garden to the marble mantel above many fireplaces.

The elegant formal dining room leads to the solarium.

Max Dublin Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty listLists “magnificence, high ceilings, ground floor details” as some of the best features of this property.
