An elegant, winding driveway surrounded by lush landscaping makes for a stunning first impression of this large country estate known as Emerald Glen.

The impressive living room delivers exquisite views of the rolling countryside and boasts a detailed natural-gas fireplace, a circular coffered ceiling, and four levels of crown molding. An expanse of windows bathe the kitchen in natural light. The space is defined by an oversized peninsula island, an oval concrete bar, and burlwood cabinets.

Tucked beside the kitchen is a butler's pantry with hand-painted tiles, a refrigerator, and dishwasher. An LG washer and dryer are also part of the space.The dining area offers stunning views of the portico and its beautiful surrounding. The portico includes a Viking grill built atop a spacious brick-and-slate island. An expansive half-circle Palladian window, stately columns, recessed lighting and built-in speakers add to the design of this amazing portico. The main floor hallway, which boasts a series of archways and layered crown molding, leads to a walnut-raised panel study with matching coffered 9-section walnut ceiling. Adjacent to the study is a guest suite with a detailed entry vestibule. The suite offers an extraordinary private bath with a hand-painted Kohler tub and a walk-in tile steam shower. Defining the meaning of elegance is the main bedroom suite that is distinguished by a rotunda entry, domed ceiling, and plaster medallion leading to the pear-wood dressing room. The bedroom features unprecedented detailing, including the 18-foot barrel ceiling and extensively layered crown molding. At the other end of the Brazilian cherry-wood hallway is a majestic bath retreat that is highlighted by a platform jetted tub and walk-in marble dual shower.

One suite boasts a center niche and a spacious sitting area with stately columns.

Columns open up to an expansive family room with a gas fireplace and double French doors that open onto a grass quad. There is an adjoining reading room with custom ceiling panels and solid oak wainscoting. An adjacent play loft or gymnasium boasts recessed lights and faux bamboo flooring.
