Mansion Located in La Selva Beach, CA

This estate is located on Holiday Dr in La Selva Beach, CA.  This home overlooks the beautiful Monterey Bay with awesome views! I LOVE the Corinthian columns. I bet the patios of this home have good views.  This home had a historical connection to the house with the big dome on the right in the aerial photo when the home with the dome was built.  Mr. Cicarridi (I may have misspelled his name), built the house and they wanted a house next door (the home with the dome) for his two daughters and their families.  This home is truly beautiful and has just an awesome setting!
