The large covered wrap-around porch with flagstone surface beckons you to sit and visit awhile; you will love being nestled in this corner lot with gorgeous native landscaping. The curb appeal of the natural stone and Hardiplank exterior is lovely.

As soon as you come through the stunning Mahogany front door underneath a must-see antique beveled glass transom, you will appreciate the perfect balance in this home between sophistication and southern comfort. Every detail in this home was carefully selected and quality crafted. Echoes of European influence are celebrated throughout the home right alongside such local favorites as wide plank pine flooring. Imagine cozying up to a crackling fire on those cool nights, the woodburning fireplace framed by a mantel replicated from an Italian monastery in Rome. Notice the arched doorways and triple crown molding.

Entertain in grand style in your formal dining room, which showcases a custom wine bar with a one of a kind copper sink, marble countertop, and custom cabinets with antique mirror fronts. Enjoying the built-in Sub-Zero lighted wine fridge, fridge drawer, and freezer drawer will help satisfy every discriminating wine palate.

The chef’s kitchen works wonderfully as the heart of this home, stunning with its 8’ island topped by Jerusalem Gold Travertine. Highlights include a warming drawer, microwave drawer, French door refrigerator, trash compactor, 36” Dacor dishwasher, soft close drawers, and much more, all centered around gorgeous custom cabinetry. Relish in the detail that the stove hood was replicated from an original in Normandy, France, as you enjoy the Viking six-burner cooktop with griddle and potfiller. The attractive custom china cabinet will make dinner party preparation a breeze.

Any elegant southern home needs its own library and this home has a beauty. Step through the French doors and notice the custom painted ceiling and cabinetry; the business closet will help you maintain a tidy space but just as appealing is the access you have to the tranquil side porch.

The master bedroom suite offers the ultimate retreat. Soak away the stress of the day in the BainUltra Chromatherapy jetted tub or enjoy the stream shower that pampers you with an Essential Oil dispenser. Wrap up in soft luxury provided by the towel warmer and appreciate that you have your own convenient laundry closet at your fingertips. Appreciate the ambiance of a custom vanity with dual sinks, marble countertop, chandeliers, and hidden medicine cabinets. What a treat to have California Closets, not just in the master bedroom suite but also throughout the home. You will be glad for the flexibility of having a second lovely bedroom with private bath also on the main level.

The attention to detail was not confined to the main living area; upstairs you will find two spacious bedrooms on pretty hardwood floors, California Closets, and a full luxury bath that showcases custom antique tile imported from Italy along with custom dual sinks and hidden medicine cabinet. The large playroom works as a wonderful flexible use room and the media room features custom media built-ins with large storage areas behind the walls.

Did someone mention a spa? No excuses allowed to leave the basement of this home without feeling amazing. The home gym features rubber flooring and a floor to ceiling mirrored wall with space for a 50” TV. Enjoy the Massage Room, all set up for unparalleled pampering. The pretty half bath boasts sweet grass wallpaper and an attractive vanity. You might not enjoy doing laundry but your large laundry room with utility sink will make it much easier.

Enjoy the fenced privacy of your large, beautifully landscaped back yard. The deck is a great place to hang out and enjoy the natural setting; host a barbeque, watching the kids and pets run and play on those long summer days. More great news is that your four car garage is easy to access via the alley.
