Designed by Edward Gedding, who worked with many high-profile clients in the 1970s and ’80s, the residence sits on 2.25 acres and, like Hope’s home, centers around a circular skylight.
“He didn’t remodel the exterior; it’s so classic,” Taylor said. “He really enhanced the interior to today’s standards.”
The homeowner’s renovation included opening up the floor plan, adding a bar and pool table area, as well as enhancing the sitting area. He also added a whopping 40 tons of Idaho quartz to the already 660 tons present throughout the structure.
The end result is something Taylor believes can’t really be duplicated.
“The views and the quality, the finishes … the location of the home: There’s just nothing like it,” he said. “The homeowner has great taste in what he does. You couldn’t replicate the value.”
