Amato Residence & Retreat

 


The vision for this exclusive residence and retreat center is as lofty as the expansive vista from its mountaintop setting. From the hand crafted entry gate to the vanishing edge pool, the intention is spiritual tranquility. An exhilarating entry drive is punctuated by natural forest and a wetland crossing, with an illuminated trellis anchoring the gateway. The road skirts the outdoor amphitheater, which is graced by a labyrinth, and circles the meditation site on the high, yin part of the property. A spiraling path on the opposite side of the house leads to a fire circle – the complimentary yang location. A heated stone path connects the master bedroom to an outdoor natural stone spa nestled into the traditional Japanese Garden. Details of natural granite boulders and exposed rock ledge contrast with French limestone and granite paving. This distinctive home offers breathtaking beauty, spiritual uplifting and renewal.
