This impressive home sits on an estate-sized one acre homesite in the heart of The Sanctuary.
This impressive home sits on an estate-sized one acre homesite in the heart of Mandeville’s premier gated community, The Sanctuary. Spacious living and entertaining rooms, over-sized bedrooms with walk-in closets, and substantial mill work run throughout this custom home. But what defines this home is the carefully curated natural stone selections that permeate the property: limestone entry steps and rails, marble flooring in the foyer and formal living room, travertine tile in the kitchen, breakfast and keeping rooms, granite kitchen counters, marble counters in all bathrooms and more limestone on the back porch, rails and swimming pool decking – truly magnificent. Many of these custom features are evident as one approaches the two curved staircases that lead to the grand foyer via two sets of double wood doors. The foyer flows into the impressive two-story high formal living room which is anchored by two curved walls on one side and 12’ windows overlooking the back porch and swimming pool on the opposing side. This room is flanked by the dining room, kitchen, breakfast room and keeping room to the left, and an office, guest suite and the master suite to the right. The kitchen is spacious, thoughtfully designed and offers an abundance of counter and cabinet space including a butler pantry and a walk-in food pantry. The master suite bedroom can accommodate a full compliment of furniture, has a dedicated sitting room, offers direct access to the back porch and swimming pool, and the bathroom is ready to be updated to reflect your design preferences. The custom iron railings and oak floors of the stairs lead to the 2nd floor which is home to three ensuite bedrooms, a flex-space room, and just down the secondary set of stairs is a 635 sf game room and home theater. But by far, the most spectacular part of this home is the beautiful backyard oasis. The large back porch offers unobstructed views of the saltwater pool, lush landscaping, vegetable and fruit gardens, and the 191 sf cabana that features a kitchen and full bath. The Sanctuary is an environmentally planned community only minutes from The Causeway Bridge and home to miles of nature trails, a Health & Activity Center, fitness center, tournament-size swimming pool, three tennis courts, a ball field, and an active homeowner’s association.
