If a home could be described as having gravitas, that’s how I would describe the Wilbur House by Gordon Kaufmann. This sprawling 6 BR / 6 BA Mediterranean villa perched on a knoll overlooking the Annandale golf course is an old-world stunner. This unique residence is a member of the Alta Rafael Association, a private community of architecturally significant properties.

 To say the attributes of this home are impressive is an understatement. The living room features teak hardwood flooring, a hand-hewn wood beam ceiling, a cast stone fireplace and an adjacent card room.
