Description: “Originally constructed almost 100 years ago, with an extensive renovation that includes underground wine and grotto and dining room, this 1920s-era Hal Thompson estate is unlike any of its kind. Much of the original foundation remains and contributes to the home’s stellar authenticity, allowing the initial elements to showcase their stories.
Upon entering, you are enveloped into estate abyss through extensive attention to detail – including Wedgewood chandeliers and carved wood columns and leaded glass treasures designed by Peter Mansbendel (of The Mansion on Turtle Creek fame). To the left of the entryway sits a formal living area that is uninterrupted by backyard views and serenity. Formerly a music room that now serves as a sun room, quiet reflection is waiting to be had in the most peaceful of ways
An enchanting library is located just across one of the residence’s best features – an elongated hallway that includes floor-to-ceiling arched windows that welcome exquisite streams of light. The kitchen and additional sitting area – rich in warmth and character – incorporates an antique piece original to the 1923 design.
UNDERSTRUCTURE: A fully furnished lower level with multiple highlights including: high ceilings, a charming courtyard, full bar, and additional bedroom and guest quarters and a feature that sets the estate apart from any other – a walk-in wine grotto fit for the most enthusiastic collector.
GARDEN LEVEL: Just up a set of outdoor limestone stairs sits a charming sunken-patio courtyard, centered by a hearth and ivy walls, waiting to be enjoyed at dusk or in the early hours for tranquility.
MASTER SUITE/2nd floor: With antique original doors, vaulted wood-beam ceilings, fireplace, and a marble bath bathed in natural light, the master suite incorporates old-world ambience without taking away from functionality.
Villa living is completely reinvented through 12,000sqft of luxury, bringing this historically significant residence to life through much more than what’s found in your typical manor”
