Set on a knoll at the end of a gated driveway, this Mediterranean estate is shielded from the street and the outside world. Elegant original details and craftsmanship maintain the home's period authenticity. The Satinwood-paneled library, for example, has hidden bookcases and a secret passage — a feature sometimes incorporated into homes built during Prohibition.
