Rarely does a significant opportunity present itself with such distinction. Every imaginable detail of 4500 Downers Drive has been painstakingly attended to throughout the over 10,000 sq.ft. of opulent living and entertaining space. The impressive 30' ceiling in the foyer hints at the grandeur of the estate. One is immediately drawn into the main living space and its stunning 18' soaring exposed beam architecture which is bathed in light and opens to one of the outdoor spaces as well as the music room. Quickly the 8' solid doors, exquisitely crafted custom millwork/trim, and bespoke detailing become apparent. The dramatic library showcases substantial built-ins and the first of 5 fireplaces. From the adjacent dining room with detailed woodwork, a butler's pantry leads to a spacious gourmet kitchen featuring the best of everything: A 48" Dacor range, 2 SubZero refrigerators, 2 beverage refrigerators, walk-in pantry, island with prep sink, multiple dining areas, and abundant classic cabinetry. The first-floor primary suite offers a sense of both majesty and serenity with soaring 15' custom tray ceilings, a breakfast bar, stunning stone fireplace, and sweeping views of the grounds. Meticulous attention to detail is presented in the luxurious spa-inspired bathroom with elegant tile detailing. A first floor laundry room is conveniently located just down from the 4+ car garage. A second family room, additional primary suite, and auxiliary laundry room await on the upper level. All bedrooms are en suite and feature walk-in closets with custom built-ins. The lower level is an entertainment haven. The spectacular theater room includes a custom ceiling inspired by the Titanic, 11 "FirstClass" recliner viewing seats, and fireplace. Additionally, an 11' full swing golf simulator, arcade alley, climate-controlled wine/spirits cellar with custom tile work, Irish-themed bar with dishwasher/ice maker, copper-style ceiling, billiard space, and additional "lounge" create a showpiece like no other. A fitness center and additional en suite guest quarters complete this level. An elevator leads to all 3 floors of living space, including an additional 4th stop at garage level to facilitate transporting entertainment supplies for hosting. Outside, the expansive resort-like pool surrounds you with multiple levels of patio that create intimate "pockets" of solitude in an otherwise massive 1.3 acre retreat. Complimenting the pool is a waterslide, grotto, and one of the most dramatic solariums ever to grace a private residence. Featuring an oversized wood fireplace, this area is designed to be used all year. For those who appreciate and want it ALL, this home is simply irreplaceable at this sought-after location and price.
