Exquisite bayou front custom home reminiscent of an European country estate, carefully designed, constructed with the finest of materials, quality workmanship and an eye for detail. This four bedroom, six and two-half bath beauty is like a fortress, with 8 inch thick poured concrete walls. A beautifully paved circular driveway leads to an impressive entrance with hand carved mahogany entry doors opening into the two story rotunda style foyer, with curved stairways on each side leading to the second level gallery, hand carved wrought iron and brass railings, domed medallion with motorized chandelier for easy cleaning. Solid marble columns frame the entrance to the spacious, open living/dining/kitchen area. The living area has an entire wall of custom built-ins, gas fireplace with marble mantle, flat panel television hidden beneath a remote controlled disappearing painting, and a "secret" door leading to His study, complete with custom built-ins, marble columns, coffered wood ceiling. The dining area is very large and will accommodate an oversized dining table. Any cook will love the kitchen, with an large breakfast bar, center island, granite counters, upgraded appliances including SubZero refrigerator, ice maker, two Bosch cabinet front dishwashers, Dacor glass cook top (stubbed also for gas), warming drawer. Just off the kitchen is a sunny breakfast area and a walk-in pantry with auto-on lights. Nearly a full wall of cabinetry also has an additional "secret" door leading to Her study and the adjoining screened porch and outdoor grilling area. This study has two large closets, one with a computer station and one with built-in shelf organizers. There is an elevator just off the foyer that runs to the second level, where the luxurious master suite and three additional bedrooms suites are located. The master bedroom features a gas fireplace, large balcony, domed medallion chandelier and two master baths. Hers features a large walk-in closet with built-ins, a large bath with corner set Air Jet tub, private water closet, vanity with make-up counter, designer glass sink, decorative wall treatment, flat panel television niche.

All bedrooms and baths also have electric privacy screens on the windows, controlled at the Smart House panels throughout the house. On the third level is the media/game room, complete with a wet bar and powder room. There's plenty of room for the media area, pool table and game tables. Architectural accents are throughout the entire home and include Venetian plaster on all walls and all ceilings, extensive crown molding, designer lighting and plumbing fixtures, heated floors in all bathrooms, stone or hardwood floors throughout except for plush carpet in the third level media room. Additional custom features include Smart House wiring with surveillance cameras, touch screen pads throughout the home control everything from heating and cooling, lighting, televisions, surround sound and more. Two Rinnai hot water heaters provide instant hot water throughout, charcoal filtered water system filters water to whole house. For added peace of mind, there is a whole house gas generator that runs everything should power be lost. Two 2-car garages, one on either side of the home. Outdoors is a large covered patio adjoining the living area and a separate screened pool house with a hot tub and "swim against the current" heated lap pool. There's also a pier with a sitting area and an additional deck on the bayou and overlooks the nature preserve. Truly a one of a kind masterpiece that must be seen to be appreciated!
