The 8,686-square-foot castle-like mansion sits on top of a private knoll in Alhambra, overlooking a stunning landscape below. The property features no less than nine bedrooms and ten bathrooms. While certain aspects of the interior seem rooted in the past, with mirrored panel walls and white marble floors, they only add to the personality and charm of the property.

Throughout, the home’s various living spaces have been tastefully decorated and appointed to accentuate the warmth of the home’s open, natural wood beam ceilings and glowing hardwood floors.
