This magnificent estate is located on the bluff side of Forest Park. Situated on nearly one acre of manicured park-like grounds, the home features five bedrooms, four bathrooms and is approximately 4700 square feet but feels like twice that amount. It is a warm, family-oriented home with high-end, custom features, yet great care has been taken to ensure that it is practically maintenance free and extremely energy efficient. Dramatic architectural details are apparent from the moment you enter through the hand-carved mahogany front doors. Hand-scraped hickory wood, limestone, and travertine marble adorn the floors, high ceilings feature 12” crown moldings with built-up, rounded corners, and most of the doors are 3’ wide. Gracious formals, a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, a large family room, the master bedroom suite, and a guest bedroom are just part of the open floor plan on the main level. The second level includes a multipurpose room, study, and three bedrooms. A few of the numerous custom features include magnolia wood plantation shutters, hand-carved fire place mantle, and an exquisite built-in china cabinet based on one in Versailles. All the rooms are generously sized and there are no wasted spaces in this home.
