About The Castle:
An invitation to visit The Castle will no doubt be on the top of everyone’s wish lists as they catch a glimpse of this exquisite 7,000 square foot home’s front exterior. Copper finials highlight majestic rooflines, while an intriguing, arched passageway and stone wing walls suggest this is home where fairy tales could be relived. Infinity Homes & Development has emphasized impeccable craftsmanship throughout this six-bedroom, seven-bath estate home that elegantly embodies classic, European-style architecture coupled with plenty of modern amenities. Upper and lower level covered porches offer fantastic views of the surrounding landscape and beautiful in-ground pool. Not one, but two fireplaces can be enjoyed from the great room, kitchen and dining areas.

The front exterior of this two-story country French retreat is a stunning example of craftsmanship, with the stone arched portico offering a unique point of focus and a gorgeous, tudor-style front door that’s enveloped by cedar beams. While guests will most certainly take their time walking to the front door, they’ll be eager to step inside the beautiful front entry, which offers a glimpse into a gracefully appointed study with built-in bookshelves and a large picture window. Nearby, they can look forward to a celebration dinner in the formal dining space. Close friends, however, will likely pull through the arched portico and enter from the side door where they can easily find the family chef happy to be perfecting heirloom recipes in the incredible kitchen. The culinary space offers a functional design with plenty of extras, including access to a butler’s pantry for more formal occasions and a large walk-in pantry for everyday essentials. Family members can enjoy a quick breakfast at the oversized kitchen island or weeknight family meals in the casual dining space, which shares a see-through fireplace with an expansive covered deck. Open views of the beautiful great room enable everyone to interact and spend more time together as they enjoy the warmth of an additional hearth highlighting the gathering space.

Thoughtfully planned with a service entrance off the portico, The Castle is uniquely designed to ensure every square inch is both beautiful and functional. Strategically positioned windows throughout the home cast plenty of natural light that further illuminates this home’s commitment to craftsmanship. The master suite is tucked within a private hallway and features a sitting area that walks out to the covered porch. The spa-like master bath features a gorgeous bathing area and an enormous walk-in closet with a wardrobe island and window. Upstairs, a second master suite features its own fireplace and a gorgeous slumber area that’s ideal for rest and relaxation. The second level balcony is highlighted by a wrought iron railing and overlooks the gallery below. Two additional bedrooms share a spacious Jack-and-Jill bath, while each has a large walk-in closet, one that opens up to a playroom and offers access to an attic outfitted with plywood decking.

The walkout lower level celebrates the hospitable nature of the home with a large entertainment space that summons friends to stay a little longer and enjoy the family room and bar areas. A designated changing room includes a shower for pool guests who will no doubt enjoy spending an afternoon in around the incredible pool anytime they’re invited. An exercise room and two additional bedrooms, each with a private bath, make the lower level an ideal guest retreat. Designed for entertaining in style, Matt Toole’s uniquely crafted, vacation-like retreat is sure to offer homeowners plenty of room to celebrate and share their happily-ever-after ending with others.
