Revel in the incomparable quality of every hand-selected finish and artful element of this luxe residence. The facade sets the tone, shrouded in manicured trees and mature plants, European reclaimed layered roof tiles, and stone walls with casted archways in a Greek-isle-washed palette complemented with blue shutters. Inside, an eye for design and highest expectation for quality are evident in materials ranging from reclaimed French white oak floors, to custom draperies and window treatments with imported European fabrics, as well as Habersham built-in cabinetry throughout. Every room in the home was given intimate thought imparting a sense of joy to each space. Setting this precedent is the parlor – welcoming guests with its stunning limestone fireplace surround, reclaimed farmhouse wood bookshelf, antique iron chandelier, and the impressive antique wood repurposed to create paneling of the room’s walls.

Paying homage to French Provence-style architecture, the estate’s design and floor plan was thoughtfully crafted by the home's well-travelled residents. Designed around a resort-style courtyard for effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining, the home’s multiple sets of French doors allows light to spill in while offering a beautiful backdrop of unparalleled quality landscaping with its many outdoor living areas. The luxury of a five-star spa retreat abounds in the home. Take your pick of a Japanese cold plunge and hot dip, or simply a dip in the beautiful lagoon-like pool where you will be transported to an exotic place with its meandering layout, cascading lush greenery, waterfalls, and stone clad archway invoking Old World beauty. As the focal point of the estate, an exceptional use of space is the private courtyard with artisan fireplace, and oversized sheltered loggia accommodating small to large gatherings with seating for up to twenty-four guests comfortably - or many more with an overflow option into the courtyard for an al fresco dinner party or picturesque luncheon.

Entertain large gatherings or enjoy relaxing with loved ones in the showpiece informal living room where soaring ceilings detailed with reclaimed European beams, hand-made limestone fireplace surround sourced from Europe, custom walls, and motorized tapestry concealing the television are all conversation pieces. Adjacent to the informal living room, the extensive chef’s kitchen is set in a beautiful sun-drenched room clad in Habersham custom cabinetry, antiqued honed marble countertops, Grohe faucets and fixtures, solid wood stained island countertop - and outfitted with a La Cornue range oven, secondary Viking oven, and oversized farmhouse copper sink.

With daily conveniences a foremost thought in the home’s design, a spacious butler’s pantry links the kitchen to the formal dining room and houses an additional sink, desk, washer, dryer and built-in china hutch, while a quaint morning room with built-in benches is tucked just around the corner in a bright nook. Perhaps throw the doors open to the interior courtyard for a relaxed cocktail reception before gathering in the large formal dining room set apart by its terra cotta stone flooring, hand textured and embellished Venetian plaster detailing, and crowned by a Stephen Thomas Antiques chandelier with gold leaf hand carved sconce.

Unwind in the main level master wing of the residence, truly the piece de resistance of this estate - a luxurious suite where the master bath has been transformed into an authentic spa retreat. Expansive with reclaimed French oak floors, custom Habersham entertainment built-in, plastered and hand stenciled paint, and French doors opening to the citrus tree courtyard - where the smell of orange blossoms fill the air and bright bulbs offer pops of color - and also to the interior courtyard - where maybe you'll take your latte and paper al fresco, savoring the fresh morning air. The Zen-infusing spa bath awakens the senses adding yet another layer to this special home a la European getaway. Sheathed in antique terra cotta hexagon floors, antiqued marble tile walls and custom vanity with his and her marble vessel sinks - the artful materials are a refreshing sight. The alluring drama continues with an aquatic oversized two-person jetted tub with waterfall and Swarovski crystal fixtures, and show-stopping indoor/outdoor double rain head shower with side jets. Tranquility awaits in the massage and facial treatment room with custom built-in counter with sink that leads to a private courtyard for some Vitamin D rejuvenation, and in the commercial-sized steam shower with porcelonsa tile and rain showerheads. The dual dressing rooms are generous and the custom glamorous shoe wall - for the display of over two hundred shoes – is noteworthy.

Stay a while in the beautiful host of guest suites, one situated on the first floor with its own exterior access via French doors, and three together one level above - serviced by elevator or antique distressed brick lined stairwell with iron rod banister and hand painted tile insets. All flawless, and adorned with details such as French white oak floors, custom bookcase with antique framing, reclaimed European wood beam fireplace mantel and ceramic tile surround, balcony, and sumptuous drapery and light fixtures. The bathrooms too are uniquely styled with Anne Sack tiles, antique terra cotta tile flooring, vessel sinks and stone counters. Additional highlights of this not-to-be-missed Shady Canyon residence include the subterranean level with media room – fully wired for a movie theater – currently being used as a children’s bonus area, powder bath, and 6-car garage; as well as the spacious library tower lined with antique parchment book panels for concealed storage with Juliet balcony.
