As you enter through the gated entrance, you'll be welcomed onto 4.2 acres of meticulously landscaped grounds, adorned with champion specimen trees, a charming fountain, and the luxury of a tennis court and basketball court. This magnificent 3-story, 8-bedroom home exudes a timeless elegance, combining the architectural integrity and charm of its historical heritage with the comforts of modern amenities.
