Within an exclusive enclave such as Midway Hollow, a generous quarter-acre corner lot deserves a special house. With 4 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths within nearly 4,500 square feet, this classic tile-roofed Mediterranean villa is at once vibrant and serene.
The house is designed for entertaining, but its most distinguishing feature is that the different aspects of hosting are brilliantly defined and connected. Guests are welcomed into a dramatic two-story entry foyer, with a staircase visible past the formal dining room to the right.
The heart of the house beyond the foyer, however, invites informal entertaining in an open living area with fireplace, a roomy kitchen with island bar and Viking appliances, an arch to the breakfast room, and French windows onto a large covered terrace that is virtually a fourth room to spread into. The terrace opens onto a generous side-yard, which is preserved by having the triple garage accessed from the alley.
The boundary between formal and informal living is defined by a butler’s serving pantry that connects the kitchen to the dining room, and to the left of the foyer, bartender’s access to the fully appointed wet bar with pass-through to the living room. The stairs lead up to the most fun space of all, a spacious game room, with double doors leading into the home theatre.
Within the home’s nearly 4,500 square feet, of course, there remain areas for reflection and rest. To the left of the entry, a colossal window floods the study with light, and the sleeping areas are all about privacy. The luxurious master suite occupies the whole west wing, reached through a corridor past the bartender station and powder room. It features his and her walk-in closets, and a relaxing bath with twin basins and both shower and garden bathtub. Upstairs three family bedrooms, each with full bath and walk-in closet, cluster about a private corridor that extends north from the game and media suite.
This is a home for all seasons, a family seat to be inherited for generations, and lists for $974,900.
