With a price of $3,880,000 and a square footage of 9,116 (a fifth of an acre) this stucco Mediterranean marvel has luxurious numbers, at least. Luckily, you do get a lot for the money
Luxury homes are known by their formal spaces, living and dining rooms, but it is the less common rooms that distinguish one mansion from another.
Why have a wine cellar when you can have a wine room? With modern technology, wine doesn't have to live in caves, or even cellars. Install the right temperature and humidity controls and you can build any kind of room you want around the bottle collection. Here, they gave the people more space than the wine by including a living room and sitting space so the sipping space wasn't just a few stools in a closet.
If you're going to have an exercise pool, why put it outside when you can keep it away from leaves and bugs, while also providing room for spectator lounges? A simple room would do, but to keep with the Spanish style, they included a tile floor.
A jetted tub is standard in master suites, but why hide it in the corner when you can make it the set piece in the room? Maybe they did it that way so you can simultaneously get a head and a foot massage. That's luxury.
There's more to see, like the 24 foot tall ceilings, the solarium, the exercise room, the library, the workshop, and the mudroom. Somewhere along the tour you'll finally get to the 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, each probably more than elegant enough. If you have time, wander the rest of the 1.2 acre estate to enjoy the gardens. First, get past the gate. Your best bet is probably talking to an agent.
