Situated on 70+ acres of prime land within a hidden valley, 8 bedrooms, 9 full & 2 half baths scattered across 5 villas built on 4 levels - all reached by funicular, private roads, and stone pathways. The main residence contains the kitchen, hidden wine cellar, formal dining room that seats 32 guests, and a rock-lined swimming pool. Built by famed architect Albert Frey, the rock house sits above the main residence against the mountainside and contains a 2-room suite with walls of glass, fireplace, Balinese garden doors, claw-foot tub, rock shower and meditation garden. Tucked away from the world yet minutes from downtown, this estate offers luxurious privacy and awe-inspiring views in an enviable natural setting.
