Only one word can describe this home – masterpiece! Several years of planning and execution went into this 5 bedroom, 6.5 baths, 9,073 square foot home. Set on .73 acres amongst mature landscaping and 200 year-old pecan trees, this gothic, Old World, Europe-inspired home has attention to detail and amenities aplenty. You can find grand-scale, “period” wood and millwork; original wide-panel, handscraped wood floors; wide board-on-board ceilings; imported carved moldings throughout; thick passage ways/vestibules; brick arches and accents walls; programmable lighting for mood/entertaining, etc.; 5-feet wide hallways; multi-process wall and ceiling treatments; unique, decorator window treatments; all wood windows, most of which crank; soaring ceilings; custom limestone columns and pillars; dual staircases; solar and phantom screens; extraordinary storage options; an over-sized 3-car garage with sink and work area and an interior as well as exterior sound system.
With spectacular views from most locations, it overlooks a greenbelt, creek, lake area and the 8th hole of the King’s Golf Course of Gleneagles Country Club. The phenomenal elevation boasts a limestone, cast stone and slurried brick exterior with slate-like roof, a porte cochere and attached extra storage area, a sport court, diving Pool and Spa, nearly 2000 square feet of outdoor living space including dual balconies and Fresco Dining Patios, and 3 sets of French doors along the back of the home. There is also a walk-out basement!
