The entry and foyer are warmly welcoming with the Italian travertine marble, the atrium with the stunning chandelier. The living, dining, music and entertaining areas are of the most striking design. Throughout the house, marble abounds (and is the same Italian marble that adorns the palace of Japan's emperor). The home is entirely wired for sound with 3 independent audio systems. The kitchen, oh the kitchen...fully equipped with a serving-area central island that comfortably seats 8, featuring a dual gas and electric cooking range.
