There are an estimated 130 million homes in America, yet there are none like this custom-designed executive home in the countryside; a home that commands one of Lake County's most magnificent views -- one of endless land, split-rail fencing, and stands of pines. At heart, this 3,180 square foot home is a combination country retreat and Caribbean resort with a prevailing sense of privacy and peace.
Creative design is apparent throughout. Etched glass doors and custom ironwork are the portals into a breezy patio featuring an outdoor kitchen, a colorful free-form mosaic table, and a private swimming pool enclosed by banana trees, palms, and an assortment of tropical foliage. Bahamian paddle fans, Hawaiian tiki torches, and quiet sitting areas with plush resort-style furniture make this an ideal venue for entertaining.
Indoors, imagination is again on display in the special touches found in every room. Trey ceilings enhance already majestic rooms; a double-front fireplace shares warmth in both living room and kitchen; twin arches lead from room to room; and a cleverly mirrored recessed ceiling creates an illusion of infinity.
Lighting fixtures are over the top, yet tasteful. Drapes create flowing and flexible spaces. In the kitchen, the earth tone of hand-carved beams and hand-shaved flooring balance the stainless appliances and gleaming (granite) countertops that sparkle with a diamond-like brilliance.
Separated from two generously proportioned guest bedrooms, the master bedroom offers a second level of privacy and a full measure of elegance, with a master bath that features a candlelit stone-enclosed sunken tub, a separate walk-in shower with dual overhead jets, and a walk-in closet the size of a small home.
Add to this a garage designed to accommodate several cars and a boat, and you'll know this unique home offers a unique opportunity to enjoy country living... and Caribbean cool.
