Behind one of the coolest front doors we’ve ever seen is a vaulted three-story entryway with a “Cinderella” staircase that leads to an expansive open living area. The adjacent kitchen has commercial-grade appliances that include a Wolf commercial gas stovetop, two electric ovens, side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, double warming drawers, two separate prep areas with oversized sinks and twin Miele dishwashers. And don’t even get us started on the bar area with its Sub-Zero wine storage that holds more than 200 bottles, icemaker and refrigerator. And because the house is almost 8,000 square feet, lets throw in two separate kitchenettes adjacent to the large home office and the workout room.
We saved the best for last: the outside. We’re cuckoo for the series of patios and balconies that overlook the large lap pool and the scissor-trimmed lawn.
