The master suite — one of five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms — centers on a lavish bath set within walls of tempered glass. A private terrace with built-in setting sits off the master bedroom.

The house came to market late last year for about $3 million and was more recently listed for about $2.9 million, records show.
