Breathtaking views of ocean, islands, mountains and city from this magical three-story redwood home at the end of a cul-de-sac on 1.38 acres! Walls of glass & 4 decks let you enjoy the spectacular views from sunrise to sunset. Offering privacy in a tranquil mountain setting both dramatic and romantic, this 2,400 sq ft. home is filled with light. Soaring 25’ wood ceilings, an open floor plan, faux walls by Vivencio, wooden floors, hand-painted tiles and a Balinese fireplace mantel are a few extras that make this home unique.
