A Contemporary Work of Art
Itís not surprising that this sleek contemporary tends to stop traffic at the corner of Desco and Thackery. This traffic stopperís reputation is well deserved. Extensively remodeled in 2009, it is easily mistaken for a modern art museum. It is a work of art both inside and out.
The exterior itself with its elevated mammoth paving stones leading to the front glass door is highlighted by two rectangular fountains running along the front of the residence. But thatís just the tip of the homeís wonders. The xeriscape-style side garden is mesmerizing with its complex of gray-stone water sculptures and setting for pieces of art. And the backyard is the piece de resistance with a fire fountain spilling water into the heated pool and a spa and additional water features and a rinse-off shower. At the back of grounds is a stone-and-grass terrace with a covered outdoor lounging area and adjacent outdoor grill, plus a hidden basketball hoop practice court.
The homeís interior is equally perfect for the lavish lifestyle. The two-story culinary center dazzles thanks to towering walls of windows showcasing the two long marble islands connected by a metal breakfast bar, two sinks, a Viking range with grill and pot filler, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Viking dishwashers, a temperature-controlled wine room and a Gaggenau coffee station. Itís conveniently open to both the dining room and the family room with its sliding glass doors opening to the backyard.
The master suite features a sitting room, a built-in Miele coffee bar with a sink and refrigerator, a luxurious bathroom with a soak tub amongst black river rocks, a see-through fireplace, walk-in closets and a covered deck overlooking the backyard oasis.
In addition to two oversized guestrooms with a connecting bathroom and balcony on the upper level, the ground level offers an ensuite guestroom with its own access to the side garden and built-in shelves with a rolling library ladder.
Just past the steel stairway is the media room with a kitchenette and full bath and garages for three cars.
