Exterior

The exterior features 3,000 square feet of Spanish Limestone decking, verandas and terraces that grant an expansive view and offer abundant room for entertaining. The curved exterior façade mirrors the natural topography, and features old-world hand-finished stucco complemented by Australian Limewash paint and a new concrete tile roof.

The audio/visual system in the caves, combined with its unique acoustic qualities offer a rich and refreshing experience of your favorite music or movies. The large stone terrace above the caves surrounds the Koi fish pond, and is an ideal site for an outdoor get-together. The gardens also feature a swimming pool backed by a curved and distressed mosaic travertine wall, over which a waterfall flows. At the lowest level of the rear gardens lies a spa tub set in the terrace adjacent to the master suite, overlooking the valley below.

The caves are more than an authentic reproduction or whimsical hideout. They offer a secluded getaway enfolded in the cool ambience of the garden. From within the caves, the splash and trickle of water and an upward-looking window into the aquatic life of the Koi fish pond are close at hand. The cave's exterior provides a rugged stone backdrop for the swimming pool and richly cultivated gardens, featuring a Koi fish pond, brook, extensive stone steps, stone terrace, ponds and waterfalls. A spa pool is also featured on a lower terrace just outside the master suite.

This is truly a masterpiece of a home. Every element has been meticulously designed and carefully crafted, making the structure itself (and its surrounding landscape) a work of art.
