The master suite has an enclosed garden and an outdoor bathtub, which is something I have never seen before. With magnificent views of downtown, this house has one of the best flat, grassy, perfectly landscaped backyards, ever. I found it difficult to tear myself away from the tranquility, privacy and inviting salt water pool. This is the perfect house, if only I could afford it. I can dream……. There are floor to ceiling windows from the living room, kitchen, and den with sweeping views of downtown. The home is totally...
