Located at the end of a quiet culdesac in the rolling hills of the beautiful Paces Neighborhood, this magnificent family home sits on 2+ acres of lush woodland. Private in all directions, the 11,450 square foot home boasts forest views from the beautiful back patios and pool area. Lounging by the pool feels like floating among the trees thanks to a cleverly designed hardscape and exterior architecture. In the evenings the canopy is lit by outdoor moon-lighting providing an enchanting setting while winding down at the end of the day.
This totally custom home is a collaboration between Tim Adams and Bill Harrison. The floorplan is refreshingly different and incredibly functional for everyday living or grand entertaining. The location could not be any better. Just one mile to Lovett or The Westminster Schools and just 8 minutes to Midtown from this idyllic location.
Welcoming you beyond a substantial stone front porch are the formal sitting room and dining room, with light spilling in from large picture windows that overlook the front lawn. The entire living space radiates natural light. A two-story foyer provides access to the kitchen, stairs to the upper and lower levels, and connects to the study and main level master suite. A mirrored bar can be found tucked out of sight under the stairs.
Centered around a large island with bar seating and sink, the bright and sunny kitchen also offers an adjacent prep sink, walk-in pantry, and built-in desk. Between the dining room and kitchen is a butler’s pantry which offers plenty of extra storage and function for entertaining.
Step down to the impressive but comfortable family room with floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and dramatic reclaimed wood beamed ceiling. An 18’ tall wall of windows overlooks the outdoor living areas and pool. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the home is a magazine-worthy wood-paneled study with fireplace and double french doors that open to the outdoor living spaces. Warm and inviting, it’s a perfect home office or library.
The private main level master suite is both spacious and cozy, featuring large closets and a well-appointed master bath with double vanities, soaking tub, steam shower, and two water closets. The 3 car garage, laundry room, full bathroom, powder bath, and storage spaces complete the main floor.
From the upstairs landing enjoy a bird’s eye view of the dramatic floor-to-ceiling details in the gorgeous family room. There is plenty of form and function for your family in three very spacious bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets, a number of linen closets along the hallway, and a convenient laundry chute!
Above the garage is an additional guest apartment which features two connected living spaces, a full bathroom, three deep closets, and separate locking entrance to the garage. Easily convert this space into a fully-functioning guest apartment by adding a kitchenette to a pre-plumbed corner of the room.
The terrace level of this home is fully decked out for recreation, fitness, and fun. A retro bar offers seating, storage, and drink prep, while the open living spaces offer plenty of room for billiards or table tennis. A family room features a grand fireplace flanked by built-in shelves and across from a nice-sized patio with double french doors. A downstairs guest bedroom suite offers full bath and deep closet. Around the corner is an abundance of storage in closets and a large mirrored fitness room.
Whether you’re into grilling out poolside or more interested in lounging in the sun, this home’s spectacular and secluded outdoor living spaces have something for everyone. By virtue of the home’s design, the pool and patios are elevated to sit among the tree canopy which provides privacy and stellar treetop views. You can lounge in the shade of the covered patio with gas fire pit or host dinner parties on the substantial patio just outside the doors to the kitchen. Love pools but hate wet floors? Well, they thought of that, too. Around the corner you’ll find an outdoor shower adjacent to the main level full bathroom and directly into the garage.
