Cathedrals aspire to the heavens, monuments declare defining achievements, and corporate buildings exude success. The only other standout is in the residential domain and it is defined by the culture of the time and the individual owner. In 2006, the year of construction of this property, optimism reigned supreme as the economy was at a peak. Those with the requisite means could commission and acquire the grand style and the finest materials. This estate is a prime example of that zeitgeist. A retreat by location, though close to the city, sets your pace a couple of clicks back before you arrive. The long, curved driveway leads the eye to the residence perched on the manicured knoll. Brick exterior walls are braced by quoins, like stitching on a baseball, while stately columns lend visual brawn and elegance. The structure is dignified and measured in a timeless fashion. It is big and strong, like an ark built to hold two of every happiness. Double doors spread like welcoming arms under the covered portico. Behind them, a marble-floored two-story foyer with a double staircase reflects the symmetry and space typical of Georgian design. It is grand but not stifling. It impresses but with room for laughter to echo. Unlike estates that evolved over time, this one has the benefit of a cohesive design. Space is ample in every area. Architectural details help define and compliment the space. Wainscotting, coffered and tray ceilings, and columns, balance the height and tone down the sound. The open floorplan allows the abundant natural light to race across the marble, porcelain, or random-width oak planks foundation. The kitchen is equipped to handle anything from glorious feasts to intimate nightcaps afterward. The master bath is laid out like a personal spa to be your personal sanctuary. Similarly, closet space is abundant, with the master walk-in closet that would qualify for an apartment in the city. The garage space is equally prepared to house your collection or all your vehicle charging needs. There is a place for everything and everything is of substance. Even the guest house with its own garage (double, of course) is constructed to the same exacting high standards. Systems include geothermal energy and wells for water. A mindset of self-sufficiency and intelligent efficiency. All these attributes of strength, elegance, forethought, and quality may convey what the house says about the owner’s persona, but architecture is a language, and language fosters communication. In that sense, this property seems to be like a caring parent that provides you with the mindset needed to have agency and success.
