After a day out in the city, unwind with a glass of wine in the lush garden at this gated property, then linger over a meal at the al-fresco dining table. In cooler weather, relax indoors by the heated swimming pool, sauna and library, or stretch out in the exercise room. The estate does have a live-in housekeeper, and extra services such as a chef or private driver are available upon request.
The architecture and design of La Residence are the perfect marriage of the traditional and modern. A classic sweeping staircase and tall paneled doors provide a formal introduction to the living spaces, which are filled with contemporary pieces from sculptural sofas to leather-wrapped dining chairs. The fully equipped kitchen is a study in warm minimalism, with a mix of wood and white cabinetry.
