The home, built over five years by architect William Hablinski, features marble and stone flooring, arched doorways and multiple fireplaces.

Some of the more outstanding features include large windows – some two-story, grand fireplaces and surrounds, coffered ceilings and wide-arched walk-throughs.
The grounds include a two-story guest house, swimming pool, pool house, tennis court and walking trails.
