Owned by Taylor since 1981, the 1960s ranch house with brick motor court sits on 1.27 acres.
The 7,000-square-foot home features a wood-beam ceiling and wood-burning fireplace in the living room, which, like a sitting room and the dining room, can access the pool terrace.
A galley-style kitchen, powder room, a master suite, two other bedrooms, maid’s quarters, an office and a bathroom with sauna complete the ground floor.
Another master suite on the first floor completes a total of five bedrooms.
The grounds include the pool with spa, terraced gardens, trails and a koi pond with waterfall.
