A bit of background
Second owners purchased the custom home in 2011 and wanted to tailor it to accommodate their own lifestyle. Remodeling contractor Russ Coker handled the massive project, which included touching almost all surfaces of the house — from flooring to ceiling. The $1 million-plus renovation results in a completely new kitchen, sun room, updated bathrooms and wine cellar improvements, as well as the addition of antique light fixtures (upward of $60,000), crystal chandeliers and custom window treatments.
The owners worked with Richard Coleman on the interior design, as well as Segreto Finishes for the Venetian plaster and hand-clad artisan wallpaper in the three-story rotunda. About $150,000 alone went toward landscaping by Glenwood Weber Design, a job that also meant extensive drainage improvements.
Situated on a wooded and manicured 12,608-foot lot, the manse opens to a dramatic three-story rotunda. The first-floor living space boasts gracious formals, mahogany-paneled library with adjacent climate-controlled wine room and chef-quality kitchen plus a morning room opening to the family room. The den with vaulted ceiling overlooks the backyard, and anchoring the room is gas log-burning fireplace, one of four found throughout the house.
The master suite with sitting area, luxurious spa bath and spacious walk-in closets is located on the second floor. All five bedrooms have walk-in closets and en suite baths for a total of five full and three half-baths. The third-floor media room features a kitchenette.
A landscaped back yard with garden fountain and pergola create the perfect place for entertaining outdoors. The porte-cochere and motor court offer flexibility and extra parking. The two-car garage is attached.
