Property Description

Nestled in the exclusive neighborhood of The Crescent lies a meticulously crafted lakefront residence that epitomizes timeless elegance and architectural splendor with thoughtfully designed living spaces, hand curated finishes, manicured gardens and inviting outdoor living spaces including a private pool. The home has recently undergone an extensive renovation, with fresh paint, furnishings and lights throughout its two floors to make the spacious residence light-filled, inviting, and airy.Meticulously envisioned by renowned architect Miles Gandy Whitfield, in collaboration with esteemed builder David Hoffman, this home is a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and unwavering attention to detail. The property embodies a seamless fusion of English Gothic and Italian Gothic influences, both indoors and out, to create a truly one-of-kind residence. The 8,000+ square foot property is set back from the street, with a gated entrance anchored by a circular formal garden with a fountain and beautiful stone pathways. The home is incredibly private, with mature landscaping and large oak trees, creating a peaceful retreat. From the moment you step inside, the thoughtful layout and impeccable design draw you in, creating a harmonious flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces. The interior exudes warmth and character, adorned with hand-hewn heart pine beams and floors sourced from a historic 1700s warehouse, lending a sense of storied charm to the living spaces. Every detail, from the solid mahogany built-in cabinets to the bespoke furniture pieces meticulously selected by interior designer Caroline Leeven-Martin, reflects a commitment to unparalleled quality and artistry. Original fixtures, fabrics, and furnishings, including exquisite 1700s English antiques sourced from travels abroad, are seamlessly integrated into the design, further enhancing the space. The expansive floor plan offers a unique combination of formal entertaining spaces and more intimate gathering areas. The entry foyer leads to a formal living room, accented with elaborate moldings, a fireplace and large windows overlooking the gardens. The formal dining room is the perfect spot for hosting, while the Morning Room offers a cozy space for quiet moments, cloaked in mahogany with a wood-burning fireplace. Continuing beyond the Morning Room, you are met with the butler's pantry and an additional pantry that also has access to the elevator. These spaces offer immense storage and convenience just before entering the spacious kitchen. The kitchen features an oversized center island, tile backsplash and high end appliances, along with exposed beams, lending the space a sense of warmth. Just off the kitchen, the octagonal family room with vaulted ceilings beckons with its panoramic views of the lake, flooding the space with warmth, natural light and access to the outdoor space. The first floor is completed with a guest bedroom suite with a private outdoor patio and a gym, facing the backyard with outdoor access. Ascending the main staircase, you'll discover the primary bedroom suite, with a spacious sitting area defined by a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the picturesque backyard and lake. The primary bath boasts beautiful mirrors, dual vanities, a soaking tub, separate shower, and walk-in closets, offering unparalleled elegance and convenience. There is also a private mahogany office and easy access to the gym. Thoughtful details, such as a door from the primary closest to the hallway, ensure swift and seamless transitions during the morning rush. There is also a media room, perfect for entertaining with a wet bar and high-end stereo equipment. Down the hall, secondary bedrooms each boast their own bathrooms, while laundry facilities add to the home's practicality. A staircase on this end of the house leads back down to the garage and kitchen area, providing easy access and convenience. Outside, the meticulously landscaped gardens, also designed by Miles Gandy Whitfield, offer a tranquil retreat, with lush greenery and manicured pathways inviting moments of relaxation and contemplation. The exterior facade, adorned with intricate Gothic details, exudes a sense of grandeur and timeless beauty. The expansive terrace, porch, and Loggia beckon, offering multiple spaces for outdoor enjoyment and entertainment.
