Equipped with an elevator to all floors, this finely crafted masterpiece delivers the ultimate living experience with floor to ceiling picture windows that allow the backdrop of panoramic lake views to radiate throughout. Sensational level of build quality throughout: detailed door casings & moldings, chestnut wide plank floors, gorgeous neutral stones & white marbles, all accented with meticulous trim carpentry. Chef's kitchen overlooks the entire first floor w/nooked in breakfast booth, butcher block w/ soapstone countertops, Ann Sacks tile work & Waterworks sink. Fully accented w/ huge walk-in pantry, mudroom w/command center, 2nd bath (full), laundry (2nd) & 3 car garage. Let the the elevator whisk you up to the the ultimate primary suite equipped with Holly Hunt automatic window treatments, a crisp 5 star hotel level white Statuary marble bath, lounge & bedroom area with endless blue views of the water. 3 other family beds w/ Ann Sacks ensuite baths share a gathering family room with adjoining deck to relax in the hot tub. Current owners took this house one step further by adding a coach house that seamlessly blends with main house as if this structure as always been here. Beautiful breezeway accenting with matching porch swings signals a welcoming transition to a spectacular coach house with commercial level 3 car garage w/custom auto body shelving & cabinetry, epoxy flooring, & custom silent garage doors. Separate entrance with staircase up to a full 2nd floor guest suite with workout area/flexible use space. This lakefront destination makes living easy & convenient as downtown HP is only a quick 10 min picturesque walk to the best restaurants & shopping. Added bonus.. newly completed reengineered bluff & all re-landscaped to perfection by Bill Eiserman. Incredible views, incredible quality now at an incredible lakefront value. Not to be missed if living on the lake is your ultimate destination.
