Fair warning before visiting this exquisite estate — once you cross the threshold it’ll be nearly impossible to turn back. It’s got everything you could ever need or want and it’s done to pristine perfection.
You’ll experience the immaculate detail from the first moment in the foyer as a medallion on the tile floor serves as a visual display to the open floor plan culminating in a spiral staircase that leads the eye up past the etched columns to the cathedral ceilings.
No matter whether you’re sipping on lemonade in the summer or coffee in the winter, you’ll find a cozy place to park it with your pals. There’s no shortage of entertaining space in the formal living room complete with a stone-trimmed, wood-burning fireplace, as it also leads to a quaint sunroom.
The hardwood floors in the private study glisten from the sunlight streaming in through the windows. The atmosphere’s the same in the family room, which is offset by another stone fireplace, but chances are you’ll spend just as much time in the immaculately appointed kitchen. It’s a chef’s delight with its deep mahogany cabinets and miles of granite countertop space dotted by stainless steel appliances.
A second solarium brightens up the rear of the home and also happens to overlook the sparkling, infinity-edge swimming pool in the backyard. Not to be ‘overlooked’ however, is your private view of the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains while you spend the remaining days of summer taking a dip or lounging on your patio.
Columns, wainscoting, tray ceilings … the master suite has this and more. Rest assured it will be your personal oasis – whether you’re in bed, in the sitting room or the en suite with his and hers vanities, you’ll be nothing short of closed off from the rest of the world. What a treat!
Of course, there’s plenty of space for the rest of the family in the remaining four bedrooms and the lower level that is finished off with recessed lighting and the home’s third fireplace. Don’t let the summer set on this estate.
