THIS limestone-clad mansion on extensive grounds in the gated Westlake Village community of Country Club Estates purports to have every luxury "reminiscent of grand style living." If it doesn't, it's not far off.
A two-story rotunda entry leads to the formal dining and living rooms as well as to the great room with a full bar.
The kitchen has an adjacent morning or breakfast room containing one of the seven fireplaces in the house. Nearby is a cherrywood library or office, a service entrance, an elevator and stairs leading down to a wine room and a home theater.
From inside the house, there are golf-course and garden views. Outside, there is a five-car garage, a pool, a spa, a barbecue area and covered patios.
The gated home is at the end of a private, olive tree-lined road.
About this house: On the second floor, a master-bedroom suite with his-and-hers wings is surrounded by balconies. There are three additional master suites and a crafts room. The house, described as European in style, offers some flexibility in its design. A suite used for offices could become bedrooms instead.
