#1 handicap hole. A 22-foot, multi-tray ceiling adds elegance to a room that has all of the comfort of a traditional gathering space. A two-sided fireplace opens to an adjacent office/den with views of the course. Across the foyer sits another elegant office/den with a street-facing view. The other side of the great room is open to a beautiful kitchen with top-grade appliances, a wet bar, a lovely bay window creates the perfect space for casual dining and the glorious, golf-course view. Talk to the chef from the gathering island, great for sitting with family and friends or prepping your meals. Walk out to the upper back terrace–what you might call your “Zen Den”–if you live here. The formal dining room has all of the features of a classic European villa. At the center of a plaster tray ceiling you’ll find a simple, circular medallion where the chandelier hangs. The dining room’s bay window offers a roomy feel and lots of light. Find retreat in the home’s spacious master bedroom suite. Accoutrements are tastefully over-the-top. There is a fireplace in the traditional sleeping space. Read the paper or your emails, as you get ready for your day, in a formal sitting room. There is a big island in the middle of the master closet, but we’ve saved the best for last. The en suite master bath is truly “his-and-hers”. Recently renovated, the huge, walk-in-shower is an open space with two entrances and two separate rain heads. If you look out of the shower through upper windows, you can see the tops of nearby pine trees. Custom and artful wrought iron accents flank the staircase leading to the second floor. Family and guests will love the five spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has a large sauna and is adjacent to the fully outfitted workout room.
