Furthermore, as the family takes security very seriously, they sought to find a property that while offering a convenient location, providing a subdued entrance, both for guests and their own usage. The estate is located within a stone's throw to the area's most exclusive shopping district, on a secondary road with an unassuming private gate, as well as another private entrance within a private community on the other side, creating an ideal opportunity to use the private entrance for the family, and the more commercial access for entertainment, parties, guests, or a secondary family access. The property, spanning over one acre is one of the few properties of its kind, boasting completely flat land, which leant itself perfectly for this entertainment inspired estate, complete with a half-court basketball court with custom court tiling and adjustable hoop height and night lighting, grassed yard ideal for soccer, tented parties, as well as an impressive pool and terrace behind the home, as well as a covered, and glassed in BBQ area, and entertainment area, equipped with the finest in equipment including a 36" DCS Grill and a 42" Lynx hood in the BBQ.

Upon entering the residence, an elegant living room overlooking the pool, with coffered ceilings awaits its residents and guests. Just off the living room is the formal dining room, and recent addition, a casual sitting room between the dining room and pool terrace. Beyond the dining room, is the impressive chef's kitchen boasting not only the finest in premiere kitchen appliances and custom hardwood cabinetry and accents, professional lighting and ventilation, but an oversized island for cooking and prepping, as well as a casual breakfast nook, and a well thought out nook for passing food between the kitchen and dining room for service. The laundry area, service quarters and service entrance all sit behind the kitchen, creating a private area for staff, as well as a private entrance from the garage for bringing in groceries, supplies, or simply a private entrance for staff.
To the opposite side of the formal living room, there is a casual living and tv room which leads into a hallway with access to the oversized children’s bedroom, office and additional bedroom (currently being used as an additional playroom). The bedroom can also be accessed from the other side of the living room, and is an expansive bedroom with walk in closet, as well as a spacious ensuite bathroom with floor to ceiling marble accents and the finest in accessories and faucets.

This one certainly lives up to its often abused name. As you reach the second floor, there is a small office and sitting area with built in desk with custom hardwoods. Upon entering in the master bedroom, you will notice the coffered ceilings, lighting, built in hardwood furniture framing the built in flat screen tv, as well as the built in lattice lined window behind the bed, which hides a private office, ideal for early morning or late night work from home.
