Inspired by a dream team of home visionaries, developed by Richard Papalian and designed by Michael Palumbo in collaboration with architect Marc Whipple (and cabinetry design by Brownlow + Chen), this is a stunning masterpiece of a home.  You can probably imagine the trickery involved with building and designing a home like this - some of our favorite features are the PGA inspired putting green, a 14-foot tall wood pivot front door, a glass garage, gym with a bar, a guest house accessible by a solid glass staircase, and of course, the "moat".
