This exceptional home features an incredible multilevel conservatory that overlooks an elegant and pristine garden; opening the home to the brightness and warmth of the sun by day, and the romance of the moon and stars by night. The breath-taking private garden features terraces, a huge tiered fountain, a statue, magnificent oaks and impeccable landscaping and lighting. A whimsical path leads through the trees at the back of the property to an extensive and secluded community common area and a large pond, beyond this the path continues through the woods, down to the lake.
Pulling up in front of this home, you immediately know that you have arrived at somewhere very special. The house features a large motor court and an over-sized, 3 car garage. A woody evergreen vine, known as Ficus Pumila or Climbing Fig blankets one of the exterior walls. Four majestic cedar columns that were relocated from a court house in Northern Florida frame the entrance and a brick paved driveway leads up to a pair of regal Bronze Lions that guard the elegant steps and entranceway. Passing through the threshold, visitors are greeted by a stunning 2 story foyer and a grand staircase with magnificent chandelier.
