Tucked away in a cozy cul de sac, this estate like property includes 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a fully equipped attached guest house with its own private gated entrance.
The sweeping paver driveway, two car garage and additional covered parking combined with a grand portico, stone columns and pristine landscaping create a welcoming ambiance of privacy and understated elegance.

Exceptional architectural details throughout include a family room and gourmet kitchen boasting a 10ft by 10ft granite island, a Miele three zone wine refrigerator, Wolf appliances and much more.
Just beyond the kitchen, four large glass doors lead outside to a resort-like sanctuary where the mature landscaping creates a natural enclave of privacy around an expansive pool, outdoor kitchen, gas fireplace and putting green. This home boasts over 1200 square feet of covered exterior space.
No detail or amenity has been overlooked, including the recently constructed guest house, perfect as a mother- in-law studio. The guest house also includes an additional full bath, built in wall unit, murphy bed and kitchenette.
In addition to the formal living and dining rooms, there is an expansive downstairs office with custom built-ins throughout. The living room is an open floor plan with a wood burning fireplace and views of the grand staircase highlighted by custom railings leading you to the second story. One of the best areas of the second floor is the master retreat with an inviting sitting area, spectacular closets, french doors leading to a 400 square foot outdoor covered balcony and sweeping views.
