From the start, the land suggested the design of “Lakehouse”. The property was asking for grand terraces with butterfly stairs overlooking a pool, beautifully landscaped grounds with vistas across the nearby reservoir. There should be a traditional porch with automatic retractable screens to allow comfortable, mosquito-free evening summer outdoor seating. Last but not least, a hot tub should offer a year around spa experience within this stunning setting nature provided this land.
The dramatic vertical lines of a French Chateau architecture resulted in elaborate decorative elements to the exterior such as limestone coins and columns, lead glass windows, balconies and turrets under slate roofing
Interior spaces needed to be similarly dramatic while offering the latest in home technology, truly custom architectural details, family comfort and luxury on all four levels of this elegant home. A large wine cellar and tasting room, a ten-car garage, fitness room and more can be found in an elegant lower level. Grand public and large family spaces make this both an entertaining home as well as comfortable residence.
