When you dream, do you see wide open vistas? Sunsets that go on forever? Silence so pure it's only broken by the gentle swirl of a pond, the rustle of leaves, and the soft breath of a wandering horse? When you dream, do you dream with all your senses? Hand-built in 1999, this true one-of-a-kind Artisan Chateau located minutes from downtown and campus is estate living that sacrifices nothing. From the wood soffits and gutters, to the open-mortar floors, hand-hewn timbers and bead board ceilings, the attention to detail in this remarkable home must be seen to be believed.
There are over 56 lush, wooded acres included with the property. The moment you drive up the winding paved drive, you'll feel the cares of the day disappear. The home has been built to take advantage of every possible magnificent view. Patios, porches and secret alcoves invite you to lose yourself. You'll find the perfect place to enjoy every time of day.
That's not to say the chateau can't accommodate large gatherings. With 8,393 sq. ft. entertaining is easy. From the enormous gourmet kitchen and dining room with its open, conversational layout, to the outdoor pastures and stables that serve as your own private amphitheater - holidays will never be the same.
After the party's over, retire to your well-appointed master wing with its own private outdoor spaces, full bath and a walk-in closet that has enough space for any wardrobe. Two additional bedroom suites are located on the upper level, each with their own private baths and breathtaking views.
Around each corner you'll discover a new enchantment. A gorgeous media room, a private floor-to-ceiling library complete with ladder, a wine cellar, a full workshop and even a secret loft ideal for childhood dreaming.
In addition to 3 full bedroom suites with full lovely bathrooms, there are three large gathering rooms/family rooms, 2 large studies (one could be used for a 4th bedroom) and an enormous screened porch.
The fully furnished stables and fenced pastures will make any equestrian envious - and will enable you to live one of those dreams you thought city living would never allow. Spend a quiet afternoon riding through your estate on horseback. Life gets no better than that.
The property is ideally suited for a single estate, or can be easily subdivided. Whether for your personal lifestyle, or to realize your dream of owning a bed & breakfast, it's time to experience the Artisan Chateau.
