The landscaping on the nearly 18-acre property was designed by Innocenti & Webel 50 years ago, says listing agent Kathleen “Kathe” Dodd of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The current owners have turned the sunken garden into an outdoor dining room.

The six-bedroom home has been renovated within the last five years and features a master suite with two bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures and two dressing rooms. The home has only had three owners since 1930, Dodd says.
