Children can “choose their own adventure” exploring the sprawling grounds, enjoy a game of tennis or basketball, take a stroll or a power walk around the magical gardens or just curl up with a book in front of one of two stunning stone fireplaces.
There’s canapes to be had in the formal lounge that spills to a brand-new deck while the kids turn up the volume in the family room or enjoy hosting friends and family with summer barbeques in the outdoor kitchen.
Spread out or come together. It’s a home for solitude as much as celebration.
