    Description

    Timeless Italian architecture designed by Al Jones AIA. Perched atop a gently sloping hill on a quiet Jefferson Place street sits an estate where absolutely no expenses were spared. Approach the entry up a timeless limestone double staircase with fountain to find the living room and dining room separated by a series of perfectly proportioned archways. At the end of the marble foyer, a secret passageway to a fabulous private guest suite. The exceptionally large living room overlooks courtyard and pool with fountains. The generous sized dining room accommodates a table and twelve chairs. Master suite has views of the grounds and encompasses separate his and hers bathrooms and huge closets/dressing areas. Large open and recently updated kitchen with quartz countertops and spacious island with cooktop is open to breakfast area and den/keeping room. Additional amenities are countless including; high ceilings throughout, separate garage apartment/studio/office with adjoining large storage areas, spacious air-conditioned workshop, four car garage, driveway with abundance of off street parking, industrial 32 KW generator, third floor bonus room, solid foundation including 80 pilings, brick cladding with stucco plastering, and salvaged Ludowici clay tile roof with beautiful patina! This home has the only private entrance/exit into the neighborhood, affording unparalleled access to Jefferson Hwy and the Interstate. Stucco privacy walls, lush landscaping and exceptional design for the ultimate in privacy. Every room has amazing views of the beautiful grounds. Upstairs bedrooms are separated by a game room, a portion of which could easily be converted into a fifth bedroom. 2704 square feet of porches, walkways, garages and storage plus the above garage guest house brings total number under roof to 9930 square feet. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the most unique properties in Bocage/Jefferson Place.
