First of all, the exterior is breathtaking. As soon as the property gates open, you’re hit with the sheer size of the estate, which covers a 7,418-square-foot main house and a 2,153-square-foot, free-standing guest house, as well as plenty of outdoor space and gorgeous landscaping.
There are two swimming pools on the property, one as part of the main house and another one placed right between the two structures, so it can be used by residents and guests alike.
The home was designed by Stofft Cooney Architects and built by Borelli Construction, with the main house reaching completion in 2009. Sitting on a 1.29-acre site, the home is also ideal for golf lovers, as it is immediately eligible for a full Grey Oaks membership.
The West Indies-inspired main house includes four bedrooms and a private apartment with a full kitchen, sitting room, en-suite bedroom and laundry. There are also six full and two half-bathrooms, His and Hers studies with garden and golf course views, and a climate-controlled, 1,000-bottle wine cellar.
The main house also incorporates a gourmet kitchen with a Viking double oven range, decked out with four-panel pocketing sliders that open to a private outdoor loggia that features a summer kitchen and a heated swimming pool with an elevated spa and fountain.
Additionally, the structure also houses a state-of-the-art media room/home theater, a 12-camera digital security system and Savant home automation features. Further amenities include a programmable Lutron HomeWorks lighting system, beautiful vaulted ceilings, and a climate-controlled, two-car attached garage, as well as another two-car detached garage with a golf cart garage included. The main house connects to the guest house via a linear reflecting pool, sunken fire pit and covered sitting area.
Speaking of the guest house, it was completed in 2011 and incorporates a stunning open room, and open kitchen with Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, an en-suite loft bedroom overlooking the golf course, a second-floor laundry room, a spacious balcony, a wet bar, and a single-car garage.
