From the moment you first turn down the long, winding and shaded gravel drive and begin the approach to this 5 acre mini-estate, you know you've arrived at something special. Standing before the Koi pond at the all-glass entrance to this 3000 square foot sun-lit modern home, you glance to your right and see the elegant Har-Tru tennis court with viewing pavillion and already begin to imagine the hours of fun you and your guests will enjoy there. To your left, you catch a glimpse of the separate basketball court, sure to amuse any kids (or athletically inclined friends!). As you walk inside, there is an air of casual elegance about this special home. Through multiple glass doors and skylights, the sun casts warm rays across the walnut-stained floors, the exquisite baby grand piano and a range of furnishings which reflect a design sensibility that is modern, eclectic and, most of all, comfortable.
Stepping onto the 2000 square foot back deck, you notice the surprisingly large scale of the property, allowing plenty of room for badminton, volleyball or croquet across the expanse of the back lawn, which sits adjacent to the 20 x 40 heated pool. (Hidden from your view at the left, you'll later discover the 8-person hot tub, particularly appreciated after a full day of tennis.)
Back inside this comfortably large home, you discover three richly appointed guest rooms on one wing of the house, two of which open directly onto the pool area. Upstairs, you'll find a large loft overlooking the living room (which easily sleeps two) as well as a bonus 5th bedroom (though, due its sharply inclined ceiling, is often particularly exciting to children, and to some adults!).
Back downstairs, and with welcomed privacy from the rest of the house, you discover the master suite, with its private deck and particularly large private bath. While you're not sure whether you want to soak in the large Jacuzzi tub first or have a nap beneath the ceiling fan on the large king-size bed, you breath a sigh of relief knowing that you did, indeed, choose the right home.
P.S. Since many tenants find this feature particularly useful (and not just on rainy days!), it should be noted that the basement features both a foosball table and caged-in Prince ping pong table. Very fun.
