Imagine entertaining your guests in the quiet solitude of this custom estate home with its alluring entrance and million-dollar backyard. As they drive down the exclusive cul-de-sac they immediately notice the reflecting pool with infinity waterfall. Greeted at the solid copper double front door, they are welcomed into the grand foyer where they are awestruck by the soaring ceilings, marble tile floors, and an impressive custom-designed chandelier suspended from the two-story ceiling. You lead them through the great room into the enchanting backyard where you barbecue dinner at the outdoor kitchen, which is set on a stunning slate tile patio trimmed with LED glass blocks that light up. Together you enjoy dinner at the adjacent dining table with water flowing through the center as the hill behind you is illuminated from the custom-designed water and fire feature. The evening winds down roasting marshmallows at the outdoor fire pit or sipping brandy in front of one of the several indoor fireplaces.

This estate with more than 5,479 square feet delivers grand views of Greystone Quarry, five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. 

The entire home is controlled by a computer customized to your personal preferences. This smart house is fully wired for Crestron and Alexa compatibility. Wiring was installed and completely integrated as part of the original construction and includes controls for alarm, lights, security cameras, music, landscape, TV, front doorbell, and climate. Every light fixture is “home run wiring” to the garage and can be operated from the control panels throughout the house. Customize or keep it simple and use existing configurations.

After stepping through the solid copper double front door, the two-level foyer and custom-designed chandelier will dazzle guests.
