A soaring two-story foyer makes for a golden welcome to this Huntington home with panoramic views of Huntington Harbor. The house is now listed for $2,999,999.
“On the top floor there is this fabulous wide molding that’s a foot wide. There’s gold leaf all through there,” says listing agent Nikki Sturges, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
The gold-leaf detail sets the tone for the five-bedroom, 5 1⁄2-bath home on 1.68 acres along Huntington Harbor, in which intricate craftsmanship and opulent details are the rule.
Mantels, moldings and fixtures, many of them imported, fill the house, along with granite and marble surfaces. Outside, a hot tub flows, via a waterfall, into a fountain-lined swimming pool.
An eat-in kitchen with water views is filled with ornate woodwork and equipped with a Wolf stove, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, a wine cooler and a kitchen island.
The living room, formal dining room and den each have fireplaces; there are a total of seven in the residence.
The master suite features a gas fireplace and a master bath with a Jacuzzi tub, Sturges says. Elsewhere on the second floor there are three additional bedrooms and a full bath.
A cabana-like lower level has a bar, wine refrigerator and prep kitchen, along with a movie theater, gym and two bathrooms.
Sliding doors on both sides of a fireplace open to the multilevel patio. French doors in the master suite and the living room open to decks overlooking the pool.
