Property Description

SECLUDED LAKEFRONT CREATION ~ An Extraordinary Spanish Mediterranean residence planned with family gatherings and social events in mind. Designed by internationally known architect John B Scholz and custom built in 2002, this EXCLUSIVE LAKEFRONT ESTATE extends 18 acres offering essential privacy throughout the property. A private gated entrance sets the atmosphere while you meander one-fifth mile down a winding driveway through acres of fenced pastures before arriving at the circular entrance of this Spanish Masterpiece. Greeted by a pecky-cypress double door entry, the spattering of water flowing through the Portofino fountain in the foyer sets the stage for what lies within. Tuscan columns flank the archways exiting the cylindrical foyer leading to formal living/dining areas or the spacious master suite. While terracotta tile flows fluently throughout the main living areas, tongue & groove cypress ceilings establish a warm welcoming feeling. The natural wood burning fireplace has been finished with coral stone creating a spectacular focal point in this voluminous room while a bay of Pella-wood windows and doors allow for panoramic lake views. A fully functional wet bar adjacent to the formal living/dining areas is equipped with a refrigerator & ice machine. The well-designed chef’s kitchen features a sizeable walk-in pantry, elegant appliances like a Sub-zero refrigerator, new Monogram double ovens and a Thermador gas cooktop. Stone columns flank the entrance of this impressive family room and match the natural fireplace, accentuating the warmth and grandeur of the room. The master suite extends generously along the left wing of the home affording a peaceful retreat with its kiva style fireplace pairing seamlessly with the overall theme and French doors opening to a private lanai. Glass block in the en-suite bath led to a cylindrical shower featuring dual nozzles and a rainfall showerhead, while the whirlpool tub overlooks a private courtyard. With granite counters, imported pewter sinks, a spacious walk in closet and direct access to the office/study this master suite is a true sanctuary. Bedrooms 2 & 3 share an attractively appointed jack-n-jill bath while the guest suite claims an en-suite bath. Above the garage is a considerable bonus room that can easily be converted to an in-law suite or apartment. LAKESIDE, an updated tiered deck offers an enormous space for outdoor entertainment or to wind down and Sense the Serenity of your Surroundings. An optional TIKI hut with outdoor kitchen presents multiple cooking options, a beverage center, two flat screen TV’s and Bluetooth stereo system.
