Breathtaking views of Carnegie Lake beckon from nearly every room of this Arts and Crafts-style masterpiece, beautifully rendered by highly regarded architect Max Hayden, and master builder, Lewis Barber. Finely crafted, period architectural details - bespoke millwork, 5 fireplaces, artisan tile, transomed doorways - bring generously-proportioned rooms to life. A dramatic beamed ceiling, row of French doors, and opposing fireplaces lend a palatial air to the Great Room and dining room. Adjoining are a cathedral sunroom and a gourmet kitchen with a barrel-vaulted butler's pantry. The 1st floor master wing boasts every luxury, including a private laundry room. A coffered den introduces the lower level to 2 bedroom suites, wine cellar, gym, laundry and a light-filled work room. Perched on the upper floor are his and her studies, mahogany-sheathed library and a full bath. All 3 levels are served by an elevator. Elegant terraces allow in the ever-changing splendor of the lake, gardens, and grounds - a stunning backdrop to a pool and private hot tub.
