This late mid-century property completed in 1970 is one of the few that have ever become available in Old Las Palmas. From the street the interesting desertscape with sculpted metal borders was created by one of the sellers who is a designer himself and inspired by renowned Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Berle Marx. Walled and gated, the pedestrian entry gate leads to a front-loaded clover shaped pool and adjacent spa situated to drink in the glorious mountain views. Floor to ceiling windows cascade the common areas and open for fresh air for taking in the surrounding mountains which become your living art. Double glass entry doors expose the poured terrazzo floors which are in much of the property. The step-down living room has wood floors with centered gas fireplace and beautiful built ins. To the West (protected by exterior rolling shutters) the magical garden and outdoor dining area are revealed. Great kitchen with prep sink and direct access to the exterior BBQ area, dining and various vignettes all with their own feeling of mystery and wonder. There are four bedroom suites (two currently being used as offices) and an oversized primary suite with incredible mountain views, a garden view shower and soaking tub with direct access to the shaded pool pavilion off the primary suite. Formal dining as well as a relaxation library area flanked with tile created by one of the sellers also directs you to an additional outdoor vignette. This property has a fantastic feeling and vibe all on its own and it is experienced right from the start from the street entry though the doors revealing a private understated and sophisticated sanctuary.
