Description

"Innisfail" a classic French Country Estate designed by famous Architect David Adler and his associate Henry Dangler is being offered to the most sophisticated buyers. This truly elegant stone and stucco residence sits upon 2.048 acres. The exterior features a swimming pool with spa, tennis courts and formal gardens. Iron gates flanked by large stucco monuments welcome you as you enter the French grandeur of this estate. The front of this home is accented by garden statuary and the front door has sphinx statues resting regally by the entrance. Stone garlands are draped below the window ledges and Parisian lamp posts romantically illuminate this special property. Mr. Adler was very conscious of symmetry during his design of the exquisite estate. This elegant home is a significant example of the enduring quality of David Adler's work. The home features grandly sized formal rooms, the stunning finishes reinforce the elegance of this home. Maintained and updated throughout the years including a new $690,000 slate roof with copper gutters, five new Air conditioning units and a commercial grade heating system, all bathrooms have been renovated with the highest quality design and materials ie. Sherle Wagner 24kt Gold fixtures, the kitchen boasts a Gaggenau six burner gas cooktop and hood and Subzero refrigerator and freezer. A simply magnificent home for entertainment, featuring grand rooms with sparkling crystal chandeliers, gilt moldings, exquisite faux painting, 11ft ceilings, four fireplaces, wood, marble and black terrazzo flooring. French doors throughout the first floor open onto the lovely terraces and breathtaking grounds. Typical of Adler's homes, there is a first floor lady's powder room and sitting room. The gentleman's restroom features fabric walls and is situated off the inviting cherry library complete with floor to ceiling bookcases. The second-floor features eight gorgeous bedrooms and seven baths. The master suite enjoys a delightful dressing room, with a beautifully painted barrel ceiling and lovely mirrored dressing room. The "his and hers" baths both feature murals which echo the formal gardens. All bedrooms have private bathrooms and walk-in closets. The third floor is filled with possibilities. Presently the third floor offers a sauna, large granite topped bar with wine cooler, dishwasher and icemaker, a spacious full bath and a recreation space including a stage with dramatic lighting. The home offers a housekeeping wing with bedrooms full bath and laundry room. This significantly historical estate brings the elegance of years gone by to life for the lucky new Homeowner!!
