MORGAN’S RISE MASTERPIECE! Poised on a premium 2 acre lot with panoramic, unobstructed mountain views, this majestic estate captures the best of all worlds: unparalleled natural beauty, state-of-the-art amenities, and a timeless architectural pedigree in a classic Eastern seaboard style.
Masterfully crafted by Stephens Fine Homes, this one-of-a-kind home showcases a whopping 12,500+ sq ft of awe-inspiring indoor living space, with equally incredible attractions outdoors, including a heated pool, outdoor Lanai kitchen, lengthy limestone verandah, and extensive landscaping including landscape boulder retaining walls, manicured lawns, and a variety of trees and shrubs. The SW rear exposure floods the grounds and home with natural sunshine, day in and day out – all year round.
An elegant fountain, spacious circular drive, and limestone footpath offer a gracious welcome to this fine home, where the Hamptons-inspired brick and cedar shake exterior presents a refreshingly modern twist on an old-world classic. A paved drive leads under the arched entrance to the auto court, where daily drivers can park in the oversized attached double garage, and collector cars can be housed in the oversized triple garage with parking for five.
Past the threshold of custom double maple doors, a 2-storey domed foyer with Milwaukee limestone flooring, dual hidden coat closets, and the first of several dual-sided gas fireplaces sets a promising – and uncompromising- tone for the spaces yet to come.
Exquisite custom finishes impress in every room, on every level. Soaring 9’ and 10’ ceilings, hand-scraped wide-plank oiled white oak floors, and extensive millwork detailing including crown moldings, wainscoting, paneled columns and ceilings, art niches, and furniture-style built-ins demonstrate an incomparable commitment to excellence throughout.
Encompassing close to 5,200 sf, the sprawling main floor boasts a 2-storey great room with fireplace, music room, formal dining with paneled barrel ceilings and butler’s pantry, turreted breakfast nook, adjacent sitting area with built-in coffee station, TWO home offices (one with separate entrance ideal for home-based professionals), mudroom with concealed office access, powder bath, and the first of this home’s three laundry rooms – this one with dual washer/dryers, extensive cabinetry, and pull-out laundry hampers.
An absolute dream, the massive kitchen enjoys plentiful custom-built cabinetry with furniture-style detailing and pull-outs, two separate islands, each with soapstone counters and under-mount cast iron sinks, and premium, integrated kitchen appliances by Sub Zero and Wolf including a custom-designed ice box-style fridge and freezer, 48” gas stove, and custom pewter hoodfan. Extensive food storage is found in the climate-controlled walk-in pantry with butcher-block counters and extra full size fridge and freezer.
On the west end of the main, French doors escort you to the expansive master wing, which boasts a gallery-style hallway with paneled barrel ceiling detail. Secondary French doors lead to the bedroom area, with perimeter molding detail, fireplace with custom built-ins, and private access to the upper verandah. Across the hall, the bedroom-sized closet comes complete with a furniture style armoire, extensive shelving, drawers, and jewelry storage, as well as a built-in makeup desk. Boasting French doors with glass uppers, and a paneled vaulted ceiling, the ensuite comes complete with his and hers vanities, water closets, and shower access. Swathed in porcelain tile, this master oasis features a cast iron clawfoot tub, and extensive built-in cabinetry and designer lighting features.
Complete with three enormous bedrooms, each with luxurious private ensuites and walk-in closets, the upper floor also boasts an entrance hall with sitting area, loft with fireplace, laundry and linen storage, and a perimeter railing overlooking the great room below. Two separate staircases allow both formal and private access to the guest and children’s areas.
Three more bedrooms are available on the lower level, again complete with walk-in closets and private ensuite bathrooms. Be forewarned: with over 5,000 sq ft of premium entertainment space including a theatre room, golf simulator room, billiards area, home spa with steam shower, home gym with mirrored wall, full-scale Irish pub, and rough-ins for a subterranean wine cellar- your guests may never want to leave! Fully outfitted with all the bells and whistles, these entertaining and relaxing areas deserve accolades for premium style and function.
10-ft ceilings and infloor heat run throughout the walkout basement level, where extensive brick and custom millwork detailing perfectly accent the enormous windows and glass door. With the ability to completely open the 23’ x 9’ Nano door, indoor entertaining at the bar and billiards area can easily blend with outdoor pool enjoyment.
Outdoor entertaining is a pleasure in this executive residence. Surrounding by a blend of limestone and poured concrete, the heated 20’ x 40’ pool enjoys plentiful sunshine, fresh air, and easy access to the roughed-in hot tub area and outdoor bathroom/changing room. A full-length upper verandah overlooks the pool area, enjoying limestone flooring and magnificent panoramic views of the landscaped grounds and mountains. With access off the kitchen, the turreted Lanai with paneled ceiling features a brick-surround outdoor kitchen with 40” Vintage BBQ and storage, 54” hoodfan, soapstone counters, and outdoor gas fireplace with TV hookups.
