With an elegant French ambiance, this exquisitely crafted and updated custom manor in guard-gated Fairbanks Ranch is embraced by a private 1.07-acre homesite. A hint of storybook charm is accentuated by towering circular chimneys with a diamond brick pattern, a new roof and elegant leaded-glass entry doors. Traditional white paneling, wainscoting and crown molding embellish living areas, which include a formal living room, formal dining room with chandelier, a great room with pub-style bar., 4 ensuite bedrooms, and an octagonal office with wood paneling and built-ins. Sophisticated French design is also showcased in a remodeled kitchen complete with granite countertops, a casual dining area, stainless appliances and a cabinet-matched built-in refrigerator. The 2-level design lives like a palatial 1-story floorplan, with the master suite located downstairs and complemented by patio access, a sitting area with fireplace, separate retreat, and chic bath with jetted tub. The 2nd floor hosts a versatile loft with towering open-truss ceiling. Grounds offer a pool and spa, extensive patios for entertaining, and a porte cochere that separates the main house from a 4-car garage and guest house.
