Nestled in a bend of Richardson Road, the casual passerby may remark on a large pond with a fishing porch or a rolling meadow with deer or turkeys grazing in the early morning hours or dusk and even wonder how such a pastoral environment can exist just moments from Ridgeland or Madison shopping and interstate access. However, enter the private gate, follow the winding driveway with lighting, towering pine trees, pass the office/guesthouse, and step out onto one of the most secluded, private estates in Madison County.
First stop, the guest house/office. Built from bricks salvaged from a church in Natchez and a sweeping galley porch on all four sides of the building, the guest house features two expansive rooms which could be office space with built ins or a bedroom or two as well as a full bath and kitchenette. 10 ft church doors as architectural decor, stained glass windows, 12 ft ceilings, crown moulding, heart of pine floors, and it's own electrical panel and security system. This is only a hint as to what's next in the main house.
Park on the custom compass rose that anchors a welcoming parking area. Step inside the grand foyer with its 30 ft ceiling and marble floors. Through pocket doors on the right, a stately study with handsome millwork, walnut cabinetry and Italian chandelier. Across the foyer, a formal dining room with gorgeous views of the rose bushes and grounds. Next, across from the grand staircase that was completely moved when the home when was renovated, a less formal sitting room with a wet bar.
An entertainer/chef's kitchen awaits with an oversized island and natural quartz countertops. Two Asko dishwashers, full size Subzero Freezer and Refrigerator, a Wolfe steam oven, separate Wolfe oven, and 6 burner Wolfe gas range/oven with potfillter and custom venthood. Soft close pull out pantry cabinets and drawers. Coffee bar station and pull up seating.
The primary suite is its own retreat. Expansive sized bedroom with master control switch for the entirely new LED lighting system for the whole property. The first bath features a hand made round walnut vanity, air jet soaker tub and separate steam shower as well as tiers of closeted hanging space. A second bath features an oversized shower and vanity, and in the closet - an island with natural quartz countertop, velvet lined shelves for valuables, glass front cabinets and multiple storage solutions. The primary suite also has a second bedroom with its own ensuite bath which could be used as a private study or guest room or sitting room.
Proceed from the private quarters to The Great Room. This 22x41 ft room has room for multiple seating stations. This gathering area is banked by a fireplace with a French limestone hearth, coffered ceilings 20-30 ft high, and bordered by 5 sets of French doors that lead out onto the rear galley porch overlooking the manicured English grass block paver style courtyard. Stroll from the kitchen through the great room off the porch and to the pool and hot tub amidst terraces, natural burms and the utmost privacy.
On the second floor of the home - two ensuite bedrooms and baths with brand new windows. The third floor observatory can be used for exercise, crafts, playroom - whatever you would like.
4 car garage, hard wood floors throughout the main level, LED lighting throughout the home, state of the art appliances and security and electrical systems. All in the pastoral serene setting with deer grazing in the front yard and turkeys in the meadow at sunset. There are too many details to count in this amazing custom home.
