English-Influenced Estate in Glen Abbey
Describing this Glen Abbey treasure, architect Robbie Fusch put it succinctly: “A private estate of the Elizabethan architectural style, this residence exhibits the charming details that I find so welcoming and inviting – aspects that every home should possess.”
Ah, but in actuality this magnificently created residence, lovingly nestled on beautifully landscaped grounds with gracious water features, private gardens, a koi pond, a heated pool, a fountain-fed spa and covered stone terraces, has more than even the most discriminating homeowner could dream of.
The beautifully carved woodwork, the spectacular ceilings and the array of the finest materials enhance the brilliance of design and the luxuries that have been incorporated. There’s the delightful English pub overlooking the winetasting room with its travertine floor and just a step away from the temperature-controlled wine room. For those more reflective occasions, there’s the two-story library with its pine panels and reclaimed-wood floor. But when it comes to settling back for a game of billiards, watching a sporting event or just making a memory-making impression on a first-time guest, there is no better place than the dramatic three-story great room.
The open culinary center and keeping room on the main level, as well as the formal living room, can easily be expanded by opening the wall of French doors to the terrace overlooking the backyard oasis.
Located in its own wing of the main level, the master suite has private access to the terrace in addition to a fireplace (one of nine throughout the estate), his-and-hers closets and a spa-like bathroom featuring a steam shower, a soaking tub and a heated marble floor.
There are four lavish ensuite guestrooms, a family living room, a gym and a media room on the second level. The auto courtyard’s porte-cochere leads to the guest apartment located above one of the estate’s garages.
Making each of the four levels easily accessible are an elevator and multiple staircases.
