Contemporary elegance with nearly 5 acres on the Vermilion River in Fernwood. Opportunities like this do not come along often. Truly the estate of a lifetime and an entertainer's dream. With deco flair and modern lines, this home will beautifully accommodate your family and warmly welcome the most discerning guests. Built in 1999 by Wayne Hebert with architect G.M. ''Skip'' Wallace Jr. with corresponding architect Kevin Gossen, interior architect Richard Holley, and landscape architect Ted Viator. The grand entrance will entice you into the living room with immediate views of the lawn sloping down to the river and adjoining cypress swamp with all things quintessential to Louisiana. To best capture the sweeping views, the main living area is on the second floor with seamless elevator access. For the chef's delight, the kitchen boasts ample space and the finest appliances for all your culinary creations (Gaggenau cooktop, Viking ovens, and Traulsen refrigerator). Under the sway of hand-cut Beverly Hills Martinique Banana Leaf wallpaper, there is ample storage with quarter sawn white oak cabinetry throughout. Between the kitchen and Green Room, is a cozy keeping area and then a separate INSIDE grilling area! All of which can be concealed (as needed) with a hidden sliding wall system to partition the kitchen activities from the Green Room with panoramic views of the surrounding trees and water. The dining room with authentic art deco hotel pendant is complimented by a full butler's pantry and adjoining 2,500+ bottle wine cellar. The Piano Room has its third level perspective of cypress trees and the Vermilion for more entertaining opportunities. The master suite is also on the top floor of the home with its own Craftsman style library and enclosed porch. With spa-like seclusion and amenities, you may not want to leave! The master bath has heated floors, Corian steam shower, and Pakistani Onyx counter tops and trim. The dressing room is complete with coffee bar and a walk-in closet that will be sure to impress. On the ground floor you will find the Mahogany office (which could also be used as a 4th bedroom), the Princess Suite, and the Mother-In-Law Suite (with its own complete kitchen and living room). Both suites are their own wing of the home with separate alarm and entrance options. On the other side of the main living room is your Under-the-Sea themed full bar with 150-gallon aquarium feature. The outdoor loggia is a welcome respite from the day with beautiful travertine floors, wood burning fireplace and heaters spaced throughout. You'll enjoy the stroll down to the river with full boat dock and refurbished bulkhead. You may also enjoy a half mile walk around the adjoining 5 acre Federally protected wetland (usufruct rights give you ~10 acres to enjoy!). There is an additional bedroom and full bath and large bonus room with separate entrance (604 sq ft not included in living sqft). Even a storage closet for late deliveries, half bath with outdoor access, and the 3 car garage is heated and cooled with extra storage. Many, many more amenities included in documents on the Amenity List (not to mention several clever architectural features and surprises!). Check out www.fernewood.org for covenants & restrictions.
