Rarely does an opportunity for ownership of such an exceptional property arise.
The incredible merger of an 550 acre outdoorsman’s paradise with 15,000 square foot Manor Home, crafted of stone, stucco, slate, western red cedar and old growth vertical grain timbers. Secure, gated and featuring amenities without compare. An allee of trees frame the drive. Drive past fields of reestablished native grasses, the main residence’s reflection shimmers in the 15 acre lake.
The 550 acres are a virtual game preserve. A mature stand of pine trees frame the lake. Old growth timber covers approximately 500 acres, supplemented by varietal species of apple and pear trees. Over 100 acres were returned to fields of corn and soy, and wildlife has benefitted. Watch deer graze and bed down. Turkey, quail and songbirds abound. Largemouth bass and rainbow trout stocked ponds round out the diversity. Both conservationist and sportsman can appreciate this unique opportunity.
The main residence, constructed from 2006-2008, is the work of Jim Mullowney, Master Builder. He is known for his unique and creative use of woods. You will find Ipe, long leaf pine beams, quilted redwood, and salvaged timbers from the Opera House in Meridian, Mississippi among other magnificent materials. All building techniques were cutting edge.
The broad spectrum of amenities, combined with superior quality throughout the home, is unrivaled. A sumptuous master suite with safe room, world class wine cellar, state-of-the-art theater/recording studio, numerous family and guest suites, public entertaining spaces and supporting work rooms with the latest ‘systems’ will lead to a list of superlatives.
Transition from interior to exterior work well. The front terraces to the lake, while covered porches and upper level decks overlook and welcome you to the resort-style pool area. An outdoor kitchen and pool house, with sauna, complete the package.
