At the top of Crown Ridge Court in High Country Estates, this country estate is found behind private gates affording panoramic views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Reminiscent of the rich collection of architecture typical of Southern France, this rustic stone retreat artfully blends superior design with stone and beam architectural elements rarely found in recently constructed estates. Through the private gates and up a tree-lined drive the lofty stone porte-cochere leads to a grand circular motor court finished in sand set pavers with a limestone fountain imported from Provence as its focal point. Gracious and harmonious simplicity, charming rusticity and superior design unite to create this architectural gem. Situated on two and a half acres, this estate is exceptionally private with a hilltop location affording extraordinary views.Stone and plaster faade, timbered beam detail and old world craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this estate property.

The 26 stone fireplace is the focal point of the room, open to the kitchen and breakfast room. Accessed from the Grand Room is the west wing incorporating three private bedrooms and an office.
