Why it's for sale. Nia Demiray, 62, an interior decorator, says she would like to downsize. She has owned the house since 2004 and currently lives with her partner, David Lindner, in Long Beach.
On a full acre, this one-story contemporary house has four bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. It was built in 1991 and has about 2,350 square feet of living space.
Demiray emphasizes the attributes: "The main feature of my home is the wall of windows. It's very dramatic and brings in all this sunlight. It really gives you a feeling of the outside while you're on the inside, and the window panes generate warmth in the winter.
"The multisided fireplace can be seen from the dining and kitchen area and two seating areas. The openness of the place and the vaulted ceiling and post and beam design make it wonderful for entertaining. I've had small, intimate dinner parties but also hosted a 150-guest wedding. . . .
"The in-ground pool and multilevel deck are also wonderful for entertaining. There's a circular driveway with beautiful trees; it's very private. . . . We added the master bath with Jacuzzi and expanded the bedrooms and built a two-car attached garage. . . . [The house has] great lighting and a sound system."
