This exceptional custom home is situated on 10.14 acres of open and wooded land in an established neighborhood of luxury homes. Professionally landscaped beds and an expansive front lawn mark the entrance to this private estate. A paved drive leads to a circular parking court in front of the residence and on to additional parking in front of the attached four-car garage. A man-made pond surrounded by lush plantings provides a delightful focal point for the front entry. Behind the residence, a marble terrace with an outdoor kitchen overlooks the back lawn. Adjoining the indoor pool is a wide patio with a fire pit and an outdoor lounge shaded by a permanently installed awning. Tucked off to the side of the property is a finished pool house with a large room for entertaining or changing, along with storage space for outdoor furnishings and pool equipment. One end of the back lawn has a perennial garden enclosed with white picket fencing and a gazebo. The manicured, level lawn adjoins over six acres of forest with a private hiking trail, providing a bucolic oasis that is enjoyed for its natural beauty in all seasons.
