Property description
Remember the excitement and anticipation entering The Ritz or The Breakers? The attention to detail, the luxury , the impeccable taste all combine to offer an amazing experience. How would you like to come home every day to your Ritz? Now, blend in a peaceful, serene setting that is breathtaking in execution and quality. The owner has created just such a masterpiece with this home. The floor plan can accommodate any lifestyle allowing you to express your own character! Why live in a cookie-cutter house when this memorable home is available? The foyer is simply stunning with the grand staircase sweeping up two stories. Not many homes in Raleigh can boast JP Weaver moldings and medallions. JP Weaver architectural embellishments and artistry are featured regularly in Architectural Digest, Veranda or luxe Interiors + Design and renowned for their exquisite craftsmanship for over 100 years. There are hand-painted murals in several rooms suggesting a true European feel. The spacious covered terrace with a herringbone brick floor overlooks beautifully sculpted parterres, a landscape wall and a magnificent fountain. Are you in Versailles!? The home’s o pposite side has a recently completed covered pergola style porch surveying a bucolic and expansive manicured lawn. The owners added 150 carefully selected trees and invested over $200,000 in landscaping. The kitchen is spectacular and will appeal to gourmet chefs . It features a hidden, rolling Butler's beverage cart, two top-of-the-line Dacor ovens (201 8 ), microwave (201 8 ), a 42-inch paneled Sub Zero fridge and a Wolf 6 burner range with a warming drawer. The cabinetry boasts superb ornamentation such as rope-trim and a classic French medallion (JP Weaver) crowning the cooktop hood. The owners even went so far as to soundproof the sinks and then added Perrin & Rowe English faucets . The large breakfast room overlooks the covered porch. The kitchen opens to the spectacular family room with thirteen-foot ceilings and French doors onto the terrace. The plaster and concrete fireplace mantle is also JP Weaver. This room is so gracious in size, it will oblige any furniture groupings. The wine cellar has a decorative wrought iron and wooden door. The five hundred bottle capacity is de rigueur for any reputable chateau! The owners designed the “doggy hotel” with pooch’s own door to the yard. The arched doorways leading to the master suite convey a sense of "having arrived" where hardwood floors were recently installed. The eleven-foot hip-ceiling is trimmed with French Provincial cornice moldings. The master includes a remote-controlled fireplace and doors leading to an upper porch. There, sheltered by a retractable awning, an inspiring setting overlooks the lake and fountain. Catch the setting sun and enjoy the peaceful and sweeping vistas. The master bath is a spa retreat itself. The large layout, soothing marble counters, accents and medallioned limestone floors will make every morning a pleasure. Practicality is not overlooked either with two linen closets, Perrin & Rowe faucets, a toilet and of course a bidet. The remaining bedrooms are beautiful in their own right each featuring en suite baths. The bedroom off the rec room feels like a private suite. A hand painted mural of LA and the Hollywood Hills in the media room sports authenticity to the room. The AV equipment and theatre furniture will remain.Meticulously maintained and smartly updated, this home truly can compete with new construction. The highest quality was selected for the custom designed 7.1 A udio S ystem in the theater , security system, RG6 TV wiring throughout the house, casement low-E windows and all the components in this house.
Tasteful, timeless and totally unique, this home will be a joy for generations. I have been in real estate for forty two years and this is one of the most awe inspiring homes I have had the pleasure to represent.
