The front door will bring you to a grand entrance that leads into the formal living room, connected to an open-plan kitchen and dining rooms—one inside, one outside overlooking the greenery.
An entertainer's dream, the kitchen juxtaposes light wood on the dual marble islands—one for prep, one can be used as a nook—with the dark cabinetry and adjacent window panes. Just steps away is a wet bar, complete with a wine fridge and rack, with easy access to the dining terrace.
When the party moves outside, guests can lounge by the pool and spa, one of the many fire pits, become a grillmaster in the outdoor kitchen or shoot some hoops at the private court.
The magic of the villa doesn't end there—going up the cascading staircase will lead you to a catwalk and family room that overlook your metaphorical castle. Another wet bar, nook and wine room await upstairs, acting as your personal concession stand for the movie theater next door.
When it's time to finally hit the hay, the master suite's opulent chandelier will welcome you to the spa-style bathroom just steps away. Double sinks bookend the free-standing claw foot tub and steam shower and back in the bedroom, the floor to ceiling windows will lull you to sleep and gently awaken you.
The grind never stops though, so there is also a home gym and office for those work-from-home days.The listing is held by agent Dara Allen with Compass.

Beto O'Rourke caused a dramatic scene on Wednesday when he angrily confronted Gov. Greg Abbott at his news conference about the Uvalde school shooting, yelling, "This is on you."
After Abbott was done giving his initial remarks, O'Rourke approached the stage and told Abbott he was "doing nothing" to combat gun violence. He said the Uvalde massacre, in which a gunman killed 19 children and two adults, was "totally predictable."
Some of the Republican officials onstage with Abbott quickly denounced O'Rourke, telling him to go away. Another man onstage used expletives to criticize O'Rourke for interrupting the event.O'Rourke was eventually escorted away amid the unruly scene.
“I can’t believe that you’re a sick son of a bitch that would come to a deal like this to make a political issue,” Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told O'Rourke at one point.
Nineteen kids and two adults are dead after a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas—a small town an hour and a half west of San Antonio—on Tuesday afternoon.
Gov. Greg Abbott said the suspect, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, is believed to have been killed by the police. The Uvalde Police Department said the shooting began at 11:43 a.m. Tuesday.
“What happened in Uvalde is a horrific tragedy that cannot be tolerated in the state of Texas,” Abbott said. “He shot and killed—horrifically, incomprehensibly.”
Texans are grieving for the victims of this senseless crime & for the community of Uvalde.
Cecilia & I mourn this horrific loss & urge all Texans to come together.
I've instructed @TxDPS & Texas Rangers to work with local law enforcement to fully investigate this crime. pic.twitter.com/Yjwi8tDT1v

According to University Health Hospital officials, a 66-year-old woman and 10-year-old girl arrived in critical condition. Uvalde Memorial Hospital reportedly received 13 children for treatment and two individuals who were already deceased. At the time, it was believed 14 had died in this shooting.
The shooter prompted a lockdown at the elementary school of just under 550 students, with San Antonio Police sending SWAT, and Eagle chopper and Crime Scene Investigators.
According to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, President Joe Biden has been briefed on the tragedy and “His prayers are with the families impacted by this awful event, and he will speak this evening when he arrives back at the White House.”
At 21 deaths, it is the deadliest school shooting in Texas and one of the deadliest in the U.S. since 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary lost their lives. This is the U.S.'s 213th mass shooting of 2022.
