This is a house that commands an audience. Originally built for art patrons Mildred and Lucius Green, the French Country-style estate was later owned by Emmy-winning actress Sela Ward, who restored the 1939 residence more than a decade ago.
Another round of renovations by Clements Design introduced new materials while retaining the home's original vibe. The thoughtful craftsmanship includes a refreshed kitchen and master suite. A marble-lined bar is a new addition in the living room.
