This magnificent home is one of the finest in the gated golf course community known as Beau Chene and is located on one of its most exclusive, private streets. A single-owner home, this property has always received impeccable care and maintenance and features grand spaces, opulent touches, deep quality throughout and an elevator for true livability.
A dramatic two-story entryway of leaded and beveled glass doors sets the stage for the grandeur that lies within. The entry is magical with its winding staircase, marble floor, and 9-tiered crystal and gold chandelier. This large chandelier has a power lift allowing ease when cleaning or re-lamping is needed. The exquisite Great Room has 20-foot ceilings and flows into the adjoining Sun Room through two Corinthian columns. The Sun Room is surrounded by five 19-foot tall arched windows on three sides, providing excellent views of the golf course and pond. The formal dining room mirrors the entry with its marble floors, a full wall of custom, lighted cabinetry, and a chandelier.
The home's very large and open kitchen and breakfast room flow seamlessly into adjoining areas of the home. The kitchen has an abundance of Wood-Mode cabinets with most base cabinets having pull out shelves. Kitchen, desk and workroom countertops are all Corian. A large walk-in pantry and a built-in desk are other special features in this area. The unusually large wet bar could serve as a butler's pantry or a buffet because of its prime location between the kitchen and formal dining room. The breakfast room is substantial in size and could be used as a keeping room. In addition to the usual washer and dryer spaces found in a utility room, this one also has space for a freezer and a refrigerator. A built-in ironing board and a deep service sink complete the many great features of this space.
The master bedroom has its own fireplace and chandelier and adjoins the master bath with it double vanities, his and her closets, a separate shower and a whirlpool tub with its own chandelier. There are three secondary bedrooms on the second floor, with its own private bath with the other two bedrooms sharing Jack n Jill bath. Also on the second floor is a large playroom with a wet bar and a very large walk-in closet with shelving, and a billiard room with a Brunswick billiard table that remains with the home.
There are multiple attics in this home, all of which are decked with plywood and some are even carpeted. Even the 3rd floor has decking in its attic and a carpeted stairwell. The workroom next to the garage can serve for golf cart storage through its exterior double doors. Across the hall from the workroom is a bath that could serve as a very fancy mud room. Hurricane shutters can be lowered to cover all windows if needed. Sturdy as well as opulent, this home is fully sheathed in plywood and its five arched windows have steel frames. This house reflects enormous attention to detail in its creation.
