“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful implanted in the human soul.” Johann Wolfgang Goethe
These are remarkable words by the brilliant writer and statesman that are just as relevant today as they were in the 18th century. And they are especially fitting when used as a backdrop to this property, an estate of both grace and elegance. Just driving through the iron gates, down the winding road, mountains looming in the background, and your heart will begin to sing. For this is more than a 7 bedroom, 8 ½ bath property, with its pristine tennis court, saltwater pool, and entry’s soaring ceiling and onyx floors……this is a home that will enable worldly cares to slip away – for each inch of the 7,400 square feet is designed to please the eye, refresh the body, and nourish the spirit.
The views from every room are works of art themselves: the family room overlooking the pool and spa; a patio off the dining room, facing tennis courts and verdant hills, the elegant office with custom cabinetry. The architect seems to have allowed for a myriad of individual tastes, whether it be a sauna to end a long day, a gym to begin a morning workout, or a remodeled chef’s kitchen to whip up a Thanksgiving feast. Guests will never complain, as each room on the second level has an ensuite bath, as well as in the first-floor bedroom/maid’s quarters. And if you need more room for family and friends, a charming casita on the one-acre property, surrounded by lush foliage, affords just the right amount of privacy. Three fireplaces, both wood and gas, guarantee winter relaxation in both the living areas and master bedroom. Of course, the master suite lacks nothing, with outsized closets, walnut floors, and dazzling, designer bath. Its adjoining patio offers an intimate respite, where the only sounds are the birds and the waterfall spilling into the pool.
It is visibly obvious that 3828 Castle Drive encompasses everything an astute buyer demands. The bonus is that beyond the demands are those “extras” that make life truly wonderful, giving one the “beautiful implanted in the human soul.”
