This dramatic modern home is glamorous, open, and inviting.

This dramatic modern home is glamorous, open, and inviting. A signature barrel-vaulted skylight runs the length of the home above ten architectural columns that provide demarcations of the open living space. Tile flooring unifies the area, plantation shutters finish the windows and doors, and uplighting adds a subtle glow at every turn. Curved walls of glass block in the main residence and guest house showcase modern architectural flair, a lounge-style theatre provides for movie nights at home, and the kitchen stands ready for even the most demanding chef. There are 3 sumptuous bedroom suites in the home plus 2 bedrooms and a full kitchen in the spacious well-lit guest house, which doubles as a recreation pavilion. A pool, private hot tub, sport court, and complete golf practice area add the finishing touch on approximately 1.3 acres just over one mile to the Village.
