Built in 2007 by Gage Homes with interior design by Sandy Hale-Zisman, the home features a welcoming floor plan, with most rooms linked by wide, arched doorways. The sophisticated finish-out includes extensive crown molding and 9-inch baseboards. The oak floors are three-quarters of an inch think and have been lightly hand-scraped. They feature a herringbone pattern in the entryway, the formal dining room, the library, and the wet bar, which is complemented by a wine closet.
The living room has a 22-foot cathedral ceiling lined with handsome wood beams. A gas fireplace that can be ignited via remote control sits opposite a bay window providing views of the heated pool and spa with three waterfalls. The pool area is complemented by a patio with a built-in grill, a ceiling fan, and heaters.
The living room is open to the gourmet kitchen, which features a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a Thermador eight-burner range above double ovens, a warming drawer, and a large island with a second sink and bar seating. The refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher are paneled to match the cabinets.
The downstairs master suite features a tall tray ceiling and French doors leading to the rear yard. The master bath includes a jetted tub, a separate shower with dual heads, two walk-in closets, and two water closets. Just beyond the master suite is the utility room with beadboard cabinets, which leads to the two-car, climate-controlled garage. A one-car garage on the opposite side of the house accesses the library, which is lined with built-ins and features a coffered ceiling and a remote-controlled gas fireplace.
The second floor, which can be accessed via the grand staircase or the elevator, is separated from the first floor by a 3-foot crawl space that mutes the sound of upstairs footsteps. There are two bedroom suites upstairs as well as a second living area. The attic/storage space is so extensive that a portion of it could easily be devoted to creating a fourth bedroom.
