This stately three-level colonial is the quintessential dream home—appointed with every conceivable amenity, including a private, resort-like outdoor oasis. Built by NVHomes, the Mount Vernon model is a veritable work of art and an architectural masterpiece. The property, which was listed on September 24th, 2015, closed on March 9th, 2016.

The stunning home includes exquisite detailing, such as classical moldings and fluted columns, as well as spectacular features, including a soaring two-story foyer, a reception hall with an open floor plan and dual staircase, and a breathtaking tray ceiling that encircles a chandelier. Tall windows offer abundant natural light throughout the home’s opulent living spaces.
A food aficionado’s dream, the chef’s kitchen features stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, decorative tile backsplash, a granite island, and three ovens—the perfect setting for preparing delicious meals for family and friends or entertaining guests. The elegant dining room includes six-piece crown molding, chair rail, raised panel wainscoting, and a designer chandelier suspended from a beautifully painted tray ceiling. A peaceful escape, the master bath suite features heated marble flooring, a jetted soaking tub, and a separate shower with dual heads. The home also includes a two-story family room with a gas fireplace, a billiards area, a game table area, and a media room.

The property’s exterior features are equally extravagant and include a spacious patio, a covered lanai with an outdoor kitchen and bar, stone waterfalls, a koi pond, fountains, lovely landscaping, an in-ground salt water pool, and a hot tub.

“This home has the top of the line everything—beautiful inside and outside,” says Joyce Gebhart of Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate, the listing agent for the property. “The property backs to open land [and is] very peaceful.”
