To add the finishing touch to any luxury home .in my mind is the porte cochere. Incorporaed into the design and construction they are both functional and aesthetically pleasing for the owners who are noted for their entertaining. The concept is simple, protect your guests from the elements when they arrive and depart your residence for the day's or evening's festivities.
Honestly, I always wished this one was .mine but am having difficulty writing the $12 million check to acquire it. That being said doesn't diminish the fact that it's my favorite. Enough room for two vehicles to pass comfortably past the entrance and its columns, a water feature in the foreground (not seen) and a breathtaking foyer with views to the bay and beyond.
You can tell a lot about a home by its porte cochere and this one entertains those who enjoy the finer things of life.
