Experience magical and expansive views from this enchanting European style Mediterranean featuring 140 feet of direct frontage on Lake Gertrude, the “Crown Jewel” of Lake County’s most pristine lakes. Lake Gertrude is known for its white sandy bottom and crystal- clear waters where residents enjoy catching large bass, boating, skiing, swimming and kayaking. An exterior concrete block wall courtyard creates a private sanctuary and a discreet entrance hinting at the elegance within. This fairy tale residence features 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths and includes 2 master suites, in-law quarters and a grand indoor summer kitchen overlooking the pool. Striking architecture is fused with artisan craftsmanship and includes imported hand carved mahogany wood doors, Venetian plaster, hand painted inlay terracotta tiles hand crafted in Italy, carved marble Italian fountain sink, Italian porcelain and antique crystal chandeliers along with 19th century bronze sconces. The grand salon is the centerpiece of the home and features a dramatic 22- foot floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace hand carved from an artist in the Honduras and French doors that open wide to the outdoor verandah overlooking the Roman pool, and shimmering waters of Lake Gertrude. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry built on site, farmhouse sink and stainless steel appliances including a Thermador 6-burner gas stove. Other highlights include a designated elevator room, office, theater room, family room, wine cellar, and city water and sewer.
