About Privacy on Idyllic Ivy Lane

Quietly nestled behind stately sycamores, this elegant home was thoughtfully and impeccably designed by architect Roy Braswell and built by Mauzé Construction. Landscaped by award-winning Landscape Architect, John Troy, it is situated on almost an acre of immaculately manicured grounds. This beautiful French contemporary home combines Old World charm and elegance with the convenience and functionality of modern construction.Reclaimed wide-planked walnut and stone floors from a 16th Century French Abbey define the entryway and major living spaces. Imported antique mantles adorn the seven wood burning fireplaces and are perfectly paired with Lueders Limestone flanked doors and Marvin windows. Lighting designed by internationally acclaimed Lucifer Lighting and a contemporary open floor plan, result in a perfect melding of classic and contemporary details.Designed with the owner's ultimate privacy in mind, the fully gated home is set back, sunken from the street, and screened with meticulously manicured, mature landscaping. The lush grounds are maintained with the use of a self-sustaining irrigation system via rainwater and groundwater captured in a French drain and stored in cisterns.This five bedroom home welcomes guests through French doors with beautifully crafted, intricate ironwork into natural light filled spaces with soaring ceilings. The hand wrought ironwork is displayed throughout the home on balconies, staircases, and terraces. Windows and multiple doors all open to the interior allowing for an abundance of light without sacrificing privacy.The open floor plan with multiple indoor and outdoor spaces offers ample options for the modern entertainer and facilitates both family affairs and larger scale events. The formal Dinning Room is connected by a Butler's Pantry to the chef's kitchen. Both the Butler's Pantry and kitchen feature custom cabinets and hardware by international designer Clive Christian and top-of-the-line appliances. The gathering kitchen hosts a cozy, book-lined kitchen banquet, and counter height dining at the expansive island. Past the island, the open kitchen flows into a casually elegant dining area and Family Room. A fourth dining option is the Loggia with commercial gas grill alongside the pool - perfect for hosting alfresco dinner parties. Each of these areas are easily serviced by the fully equipped Caterer's Kitchen, discretely located in the attached two-car garage. Two expansive living areas and an upstairs media/Billiard Room/library, provide additional entertaining and family gathering spaces.There are four bedrooms upstairs, one designed as a suite with a fireplace, an expansive walk-in closet and separate adjoining office/parlor/playroom space.Downstairs, the Master Wing includes a sitting area with fireplace, His and Her bathroom/closet suites. Her's includes it's own intimate tub-side fireplace and separate steam shower/toilet area. Both bathrooms are adorned with Clive Christian cabinetry and P.E. Guerin hardware.In addition to the main home, the property features a two-story Guest House with massive French limestone fireplace, bedroom with library balcony, kitchenette and full bath. Also connected by a covered walkway is a second double garage, work room, and a green house.Additional features of the home include three half bathrooms, home office, an exercise room, gift-wrapping room, and a fully appointed elevator.Sparing no expense, exquisite craftsmanship is evident throughout the un-paralleled details of the home. This property is the essence of contemporary elegance for the privacy seeking and sophisticated buyer.
