ROMANTIC SPANISH REVIVAL HOME sits proudly on 2+ acres in the premier community of Mountain Lake. Built in 1929, this historic home was designed by Charles R. Wait; like many of his designs the floor plan flows with proportional sequence. A tiled entry hall leads to social and private areas as it boasts a graceful, iron railed staircase. French doors in the entry hall open to a large terrace as the hallway flows effortlessly to a living room with fireplace, wet bar and porch with view of an expansive lawn. A study with powder room is adjacent to the living room. The opposite hallway goes to the dining room with fireplace, built-ins and French doors to the terrace, nearby is a cozy guest suite of 2BD/1BA. All rooms have striking inlaid oak floors that are beautifully maintained. Carry on into a butler pantry then a generous-sized, kitchen with sleek cabinets topped in lighted, glass-front cupboards. The updated kitchen offers granite counters, abundant cabinets, island/prep-sink, gas range, pot filler and a porch. Upstairs is a stunning, go-around landing overlooking the entry hall. Upstairs has 4BD/3BA, balcony and sun deck. The master suite offers dual closets, a marble bath and a shower bath. A guest apt. sits atop the garage with golf cart space, gardener storage, ½ bath and service drive. The site has exquisite privacy with an airiness canopied by ancient oaks as a circular drive brings you to the front brick portico. This elegant estate is a classic combination of graceful design and superb quality.
