About 626 Philip Digges Dr

3% co-op. The utmost privacy, immaculate architectural features, and unique historical relevance in every detail support the foundation of this magnificent home. Escape to Tuscany at this lakeside chateau, which spans 14,000+ square feet with every luxury amenity. Built by BOWA in 2005, this home demonstrates the value of quality construction with meticulous attention to every detail. Located just minutes from the village of Great Falls, this five-bedroom, 10-bath property evokes an atmosphere of respite and security, while at the same time portrays a well-curated collection of art! The pea-gravel driveway circles at the front entry where reclaimed Gothic doors from an Argentine Castle greet guests and welcome them into a light-filled, two-story foyer complete with a Tiffany stained-glass window and chandelier from an Anheuser Busch warehouse! Throughout the first floor, vintage, salvaged oak floors are visible. Just beyond the foyer, the gallery space is adorned with hand carved pine dado paneling from St. Luke s Church in Glasgow, England. A concealed powder room can be found behind a hidden door. The opposite end of the gallery holds a 500-gallon salt-water aquarium. Adept for the most passionate culinary artists yet intimate enough for household gatherings, the gourmet kitchen has every feature imaginable. Dual islands, a warming-drawer, prep sink, range, and vintage elements such as the French castors on the island, Italian hand-painted tiles, a cozy keeping room fireplace sitting area, and the salvaged, stained-glass pantry doors tie this eclectic space together. There is even a special place for the household pets in their own unique cage crafted from a reclaimed Italian fence! French doors from both the kitchen and gallery lead to a spacious screened porch with pool, lawn and lake views. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the family room highlighted by an extraordinary Renaissance carved limestone walk-in fireplace from Burgundy, France. Hand-carved wood beams and a wood-clad, cathedral ceiling finish off the space. Adjacent to the family room behind antique Chinese pocket doors is a lounge area (formerly used as a media room), whose fireplace is flanked by two gorgeous stained-glass windows. Just down the hall and off of the stately yet comfortable dining room is a considerable wine cellar with an advanced temperature control system. The luxury continues in the main level master suite, outfitted with a fireplace next to built-in shelves and cabinets, and a sunny sitting room that opens via French doors to a private screened porch. The master bath features heated travertine floors, a custom-made marble tub, separate shower, and a custom concrete vanity with Italian iron posts. Upstairs, a private family room with vaulted beamed ceiling stands just off the main staircase. Three additional bedrooms with en suite baths and walk-in closets (each closet has a "secret" playroom), along with a laundry room and guest/in-law suite with kitchenette, can be found on this level. There is also a cigar room (used as study or meditation room) behind double teak wood doors, with hand-painted Italian tile flooring and a built-in fan exhaust system. The lower level features a fitness room with a reclaimed quatrefoil door that opens to the vegetable garden, a designated craft room, home theater, recreation room with wet bar, billiards room, and French doors leading to gorgeous outdoor spaces. Outside in the rear, an enclosed porch and multiple terraces overlook a luxurious custom pool, spa, landscaped grounds and private lake bordering the property's 5+ acres. A three-car garage, generator and underground sprinkler system provide additional conveniences. High-end construction elements include slate roof, copper gutters and stone-clad exterior, providing exceptional insulation and low maintenance. This estate is remarkably stunning in every way. An abundance of artistic treasures with all of the modern conveniences!
