Property description

It boasts excellent restaurants, art galleries, museums, theatre, a world class symphony and a rich 500 year history of Spanish, French, Portuguese and Lebanese influence.

The house has 20 foot ceilings with a formal dining room, living room (doubles as a 2nd bedroom with a queen-size pullout couch and ensuite), very large gourmet kitchen that opens out to a terrace and private pool.
