Under a glass atrium in the entry foyer, a wrought-iron staircase leads up to another terrace measuring over 730 sq. ft. Stunningly landscaped by renowned landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, and perfect for entertaining, this private idyll offers jaw-dropping, unparalleled views and is outfitted with a gas line, allowing for an outdoor kitchen.
