You’re welcomed to the home through a circle driveway that leads you to an opening in a privacy wall. This wall surrounds the front of the home, which offers a gorgeous courtyard with a fountain and highlights the home’s unique iron door that swivels on its middle. A two-story entrance bordered by a curving staircase is the perfect place to take in the formal living room.

This fireplace, like some of the others in the home, is a two-way fireplace, that provides heat and ambiance to this room and the adjoining formal dining room. Before we go too far, we want to give you a visual of the layout. To the left of the living room is a wet bar, an in-home theater complete with a projector screen and three TV’s, and also the main access to the first floor master suite.

To the right of the dining room are the home’s kitchen and main living an dining areas. The kitchen is incredible. The island is oversized, perfect for entertaining, and the countertop is made up of square marble samples, making this island one of the most unique we’ve seen. There are two refrigerators, a professional-grade stovetop and oven, a beautiful copper hood, and an entire separate space designated as the “caterer’s kitchen.” Of course, this room is filled with light like the rest of the home and has more of the great backyard views. It is also open to the casual dining room and living area. A wine room, a study, and two baths, and a large laundry/mudroom also make up the first floor.

The first-floor master suite also has access to this great outdoor space through French doors. Additionally the master has a beautiful bathroom with dual sinks, a jetted tub, and a walk-in shower.
