Return to luxury each and every day with this exquisite custom home nestled within Mallard Lakes. A gated entrance & manicured grounds set the tone for this elegant estate impeccably designed by Al Jones on a lush 13.64-acre lot. A porte-cochere provides a stately welcome as you step inside to explore this luxurious residence. Living stretches over three levels with no expense spared and no detail overlooked. From the French flagstone floors to the antique cypress beams that soar overhead, there is so much to love. Hand-forged wrought iron railings accentuate the curved staircase and there are solid cypress doors throughout, paired with all the modern conveniences such as a 5-zoned HVAC system & a central vacuum. In the light-filled and open-plan living room, 13-inch wide-plank heart of pine flooring flows throughout and this relaxed space is warmed by one of the four masonry fireplaces for a cozy feel. For those who love to cook, a chef’s kitchen awaits with high-end appliances including a Wolf 6-burner range, a full-size Sub-Zero freezer & refrigerator & wine cooler. A large center island is ready for entertaining and there is a server’s pantry & a keeping room set off the kitchen. Gourmet dinners can be enjoyed in the grandeur of the dining room with a sky-high ceiling that soars overhead. The owner’s suite features a wall of windows that frame the beautifully manicured gardens, a grand ensuite with his & her separate bathrooms with ample storage. A home theater, an office, & a bonus room are also on offer along with a host of extra features including copper gutters, a slate roof, in-ground sprinkler system, security cameras, whole-house generator & three-car garage. Outside, the grounds have been professionally landscaped by Eduardo Jenkins and accentuated with gas lanterns for an old-world feel. An enclosed outdoor sitting area completed with a kitchen & fireplace overlooking the pool, hot tub, and the subdivision lake ensure a picture-perfect backdrop.
