The interior is extremely well-appointed; no detail is overlooked. This home has a great floorplan for entertaining, loads of well-planned storage, intriguing alcoves, and spacious room proportions. Soaring ceilings, grand scale, expansive windows, and thoughtful indoor and outdoor living all create the perfect combination of upscale entertaining and modern family life. With a location close to both 121 and 75, this immaculate property truly has it all.
As the gracefully arched iron and glass double doors swing open, your breath will catch as you take in the expansive beauty of your new home. The rich warm wood tones of the study to your right provide a perfect balance to the light spaciousness of the central great room and its dramatic stone fireplace. An elegant curved staircase invites you upstairs, while straight ahead, on the far wall, beautifully framed windows showcase your luxurious outdoor living area and bathe the area in natural light. Beneath your feet an expanse of deckled edge travertine flows through to the kitchen and spills out onto the outdoor patio beyond, unifying your inside and outside living areas. To your left, the polished dining room awaits your dinner party, and beyond that, the light and spacious kitchen sparkles attractively. Adjacent rooms are defined by beautiful hand scraped hardwoods.
Looking right, a wide, arched opening frames the entrance to the study. Formal yet comfortable, the study features a grid wainscot finished in richly stained natural hardwoods. A large window, dressed in warm brown shutters, faces the front yard and washes the room in light. Floor-to-ceiling shelving along the back wall beautifully displays your library, while the raised corner platform provides the perfect place for your piano. Along the back wall, a moveable shelf reveals a hidden passage to additional office space, wonderfully finished with closed cabinet storage above a desk area. A large closet in the hidden office provides well-planned storage.
Opposite the study and sweeping stair, the formal dining room offers your guests a warm welcome. On the front wall, two windows with pleasing arches offer views outside, while the cast stone fireplace between them warms the room with its glow. Along the far wall two beautiful arched iron scrollwork doors add interest and charm. One leads to a brick floor wine room and the other to a thoughtful alcove for china and linen storage, making entertaining easy. A cathedral ceiling and beaded chandelier accent this stunning space.
Continuing straight in from the entry way is the open concept kitchen and great room. This is truly a place where you can relax and let your cares float away. Underfoot, plush carpet cushions your step in the great room. A wall of windows brings light and nature into the space, while 20-foot ceilings soar overhead. The focal point of the great room is the amazing floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with its integrated hearth and beautiful wood floating mantel shelf. Built-in shelving flanks either side of the fireplace in warm tones, adding depth and richness to the space. The living area is open to the spacious kitchen and breakfast room, allowing conversation and laughter to flow freely.
In the kitchen, custom furniture finish cabinetry painted in a creamy off-white echoes the light stone of the fireplace. Granite countertops pair perfectly with a backsplash of stacked exposed-edge stone. Both beautiful and hardworking, the kitchen features a Wolf 6 burner plus griddle gas range with double ovens below, as well as a substantial custom vent hood surround, icemaker, extra deep Shaw farm sink on one island, and dual sinks on the other. The full stainless luxury appliance suite sparkles in the light from double pendant chandeliers over the center island, while a raised breakfast bar defines the edge of the kitchen space. At one end of the kitchen, double doors open to a generous pantry, keeping everything you need close at hand. At the opposite end, the eating area is washed in warm natural light from a wall of windows, making it the perfect place for a cup of coffee in the morning. In the evenings, easy patio access makes it simple to dine al fresco. Meals with family and friends will be so much more enjoyable in this beautifully designed, hardworking kitchen!
Just off the great room, and visible from the kitchen, a graceful arch frames the opening to your home’s entertainment wing. Here you’ll find the game room, media room, and music studio. Rich hand scraped hardwood floors extend throughout the space, topped with deep baseboards in soft white and balanced by crown moulding throughout. A stunning stone-fronted bar stands ready to serve thirsty guests in all three areas. Its generous countertops are finished in granite and sit atop deeply stained lower cabinets with room for a wine chiller and small refrigerator. Upper cabinets have dimpled glass that sparkles under the hurricane pendant lights. A gorgeous tin ceiling defines the space and adds texture and warmth, while a large window provides ample natural light and acts as a pass-through to the outside. Beside the bar, a small hall contains a generously sized and beautifully appointed guest/pool bath. Beyond the bath, an atrium door at the end of the hall leads to the outdoor living area.
The bar is open to the game room, making it easy to enjoy a beverage while enjoying some friendly competition. Roomy and spacious, the game room will easily accommodate a regulation-size billiards table and still have space for poker tables or air hockey. High ceilings make this an open and inviting place for relaxing with family and friends.
At the end of the game room, the media room has tiered floors for unobstructed views of the featured movie or big game. Close proximity to the bar means that snacks and drinks are conveniently nearby. Luxurious patterned carpet provides comfort, while stately columns topped with crowns and accented by sconces add elegance to the room. Deep baseboards and crown moulding in warm tones echo the hardwoods in the game room beyond and add to the grandeur of the space.
To the left of the game room, stunning double barn doors separate the game room from the step up into the music room. Situated in a charming turret, the beautiful curved stone walls and windows with backyard views help to connect this room to the lush landscaping outside.
Also adjacent to the media and game rooms is a short hallway that runs between the study and the great room. This hallway has access to the home’s second powder bath with its unique features and sconces. Continuing past well-placed art niches, the hallway ends in a graceful arch that opens to the entry, creating a well-designed circular flow to the floor plan.
On the opposite side of the home, a side hall leads from the great room to the incredible master retreat. A graceful arch frames double doors that open into a spacious master bedroom with high ceilings and tall windows. Beautifully hand scraped hardwood floors ground the space and are topped with deep baseboards and balanced with elegant crown moulding. Generously proportioned, the room is easily large enough to accommodate a four poster king sized bed, with ample room left for bedside tables and a sitting area. A cast stone fireplace warms the space and makes the masters retreat a cozy destination.
Continuing through the master bedroom, another set of double doors leads to the stunning master suite. Here a series of three arched entries lies before you, leading to the master closet, the master bath, and an exercise room.
Through the left arch, the master closet and dressing room is well designed and beautifully appointed with custom open shelf storage, a centered stack of drawer storage, and generous amounts of hanging space. The warm tones of the hardwood floors contrast beautifully with the crisp white shelving, and an elegant chandelier provides a focal point.
The center arch provides an enticing view of your luxury resort spa bath. On opposite sides of the room, light furniture finish vanities are topped with granite and sit under walls of framed mirror. A gorgeous crystal and dark bronze chandelier sparkles in the center of the ceiling. A deep jetted free standing tub is centered on the back wall between arches that lead to a dramatic walk through shower at the end of the room. An exterior window set high in the soft curved offset fills the shower alcove with filtered light and a warm glow. This luxurious spa bath is sure to become your favorite relaxing retreat!
The third arch opens into a generous exercise room with access to the landscaped pool outside. Hand scraped wood floors ground the space, while a centered ceiling fan keeps the air moving. A large window allows abundant light, creating a bright and pleasant space for your fitness pursuits.
Also on the first floor is a guest suite, thoughtfully placed at the front of the home. A hall from the entry leads behind the dining room to a space with plush carpeting, deep baseboards, and crown moulding. The generous bedroom can easily accommodate a king sized bed, and the large, beautifully finished closet also serves as a storm room/safe room. In the ensuite, separate vanities are elegantly finished with granite countertops and the spacious walk-in shower glows with natural light from a high exterior window. With a full luxury bath and its own access hall to the car court and garages, this space is perfect as an in-law suite or living accommodations for an au pair.
Just off the kitchen is a hall with a wonderfully deep shelved utility closet and garage access through the laundry/mud room. The laundry room is beautifully finished with full custom cabinetry, a deep sink, and an additional refrigerator area. A wall of built in benches and cubbies keeps gear sorted and ready to go, while another huge closet with under stair storage access is ready to contain out-of-season décor and sports equipment. This attractive space is designed to contain and organize your busy family life, and look good doing it. A separate door closes the laundry from the hall to keep things quiet and out of sight. Inside the laundry is access to one of the two-car garages. Another double bay garage is located across the car court and accessed at the other end of the kitchen off the dining room and guest room hall.
As you climb the beautiful staircase from the kitchen, you step into your spacious upper family room. Warm hand scraped floors continue throughout the hall areas and common room upstairs, while arched windows along the hall wall fill the space with natural light. The generous halls have ample seating areas for cozy reading alcoves.
There are three very generously proportioned bedrooms upstairs. The first shares a large bathroom via hall access with the common room. The other two bedrooms are along the front of the home by the front entry stairs and have their own ensuite baths. Each of the bedrooms is uniquely finished and has a fan for light and airflow, high ceilings, large windows, and generous walk in closets.
Outdoor Living/ Pool
Your incredible outdoor living space beautifully compliments your home’s well-designed interior. The travertine floor flows from the kitchen area onto the covered patio and pool deck surround for continuity and unbroken design, and the al fresco dining area backs up to the pass-through at the bar for ease of entertaining. Extending the entire length of the home, the expansive covered back patio is designed for year-round living. Large industrial BAF fans keep you cool and comfortable, while automated screens are inconspicuously built in on tracks in the columns and header beams. The stone walls, fireplace and built-in gourmet kitchen area are all finished to the highest standards.
Your pool sits just off the covered patio area with multiple seating areas for conversation between friends. A beach entry walk-in pebbletek sundeck, raised natural stone edge spa, and a lagoon boulder waterfall treatment make this a resort pool experience. Beyond the patio and pool there is the lush green backyard has ample room for a trampoline and game of frisbee or football. The spacious backyard has iron fencing for unobstructed views and strategic berms and landscaping for privacy.
Your home’s stucco and stone exterior is impressive and timeless. A wide path, attractively lined with cut stone, leads to the front porch where your guests are welcomed with the warm glow of carriage lamps. Lush evergreen garden and foundation plantings provide beauty year-round.
Four parking bays are in two separate garages creating a center car court. The gated car court allows for ample parking for guests and additional cars. The car court is enclosed and protected making it a great space to learn to ride a bike or play an after school game of basketball. Beautiful in both design and function, this home is ready for you to make it your own.
