The spacious outdoor living space includes a recently re-plastered pool/spa, outdoor shower, barbecue, fire pit and multiple areas for dining, entertaining and relaxing, including an intimate patio with a fireplace.
The interior of the sprawling residence showcases Venetian plaster, beautiful Waterworks tile and fixtures, Rocky Mountain hardware, Crestron electronics, beamed ceilings and custom wrought-iron design. The home encompasses a living room, office with copper wall coverings, large formal dining room, family room with fireplace, wet bar, gym, den and bright laundry room with an island and stone countertops.
Chefs will delight in the incredible gourmet kitchen, featuring two islands, professional-grade stainless-steel Viking appliances – including an eight-burner gas stove with overhead fill and three ranges – a huge walk-in pantry with a second Sub-Zero refrigerator, breakfast bar and dining area.
The expansive master suite boasts sitting areas and a sumptuous bathroom with a soaking tub set below a chandelier and beside a lovely stained-glass window.
Each of the additional bedrooms is generously sized and uniquely decorated, featuring a completely different custom design with a matching bathroom.
A long driveway with pavers leads from the gate to the four-car garage, house and barn.
