Located at the highest point on one of the largest individual tracts of land on Round Hill, Janus is one of the most stylish additions to this collect
A stunning four-bedroom villa, Janus has been totally renovated ... designed to be extraordinarily comfortable and chic. Interiors are enhanced by hand-crafted sculptures and original art. With eponymous views to both the east and west, sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. Gentle cooing of the resident mourning doves portends the sunrise.

Encyclopedia Mythica : "Janus is the Roman god of gates and doors, beginnings and endings, and hence represented with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite directions."

The main villa takes advantage of the dual views from this specially-selected vantage point. Total renovation of interiors has achieved a high standard of design with priority also on comfort and service.

Built by the Princess of Lichtenstein, Janus perches atop seven acres on posh Round Hill in an excellent gated neighborhood of other glamorous staffed villas. Immediately next door is the home of the world-renowned international entrepreneur often featured in Architectural Digest, Town & Country, Marie Claire, Fortune etc. for his philanthropy and signature collections of high-end home decor, fragrance, furnishings, jewelry and apparel. Fifty yards to the other side of Janus is the seven-bedroom home once owned by an Academy-Award-winning producer and director. His villa was vacation home to many well-known movie stars.

The spacious grounds are a virtual park of gently rolling land, colorful gardens, soft grass and stately Royal Palms ... all completely private. Underground irrigation ensures lush life of this beautiful space.

Downhill is the Tennis House, a folly capturing the imagination of children and adults alike. It is a throwback of game tables (chess, checkers, poker), antique Foosball, darts and other icons and games machines from decades past ... also bocce ball on the lawn and a 72" Apple TV inside. Here too is a full bathroom with shower and a modern kitchen that includes a 10-burner DCS gas stove, 2 fridge-freezers and ice maker. The Janus staff can serve dinners for up to 18 guests on the porch, overlooking the professional hard-surface court, lit for night play and bordered by a viewing gallery for onlookers.

Of special interest is that several years in sequence, Janus was the holiday home of Paul McCartney and family. It was in the Janus study that he composed Paul McCartney's Liverpool Oratorio, his first major foray into classical music, released in June 1991 to significant media attention, to commemorate The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra's 150th anniversary. Years later, McCartney's signed messages of appreciation still appear in the Janus Guest Book.
