Upon approaching grand wrought iron gates guarded by bronze lions, one is immediately taken by unmistakable beauty. A collaboration between builder Patrick Cullinane and legendary architect Wilfrid Worland, Villa Dei Leoni is the result of countless man-hours, the finest materials, and millions of dollars invested by the current owners to create a vision that completely alters the perception of what a home can be. Ascending the gradually inclined driveway, the tree line eventually gives way to a grand motor court anchored by a central Italianate fountain giving off a peaceful ambiance and properly introducing the estate. Striding across the wide front portico framed by Parthenon-esque columns through the arched, wrought iron main entrance, masterful craftsmanship welcomes you in the grand foyer. Cross-hatched marble flooring shine under the crystal chandelier overhead, and the multi-piece plaster moldings are an exact replica of those found in Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. To the right, through three elegant archways, lies the formal dining room, a generously proportioned space whose focal point is an elegant marble fireplace topped by crystal sconces to match the chandelier and smoked mirror. The French-silk-lined formal living room is directly ahead of the grand foyer, with a curved window wall overlooking the rear lawn. A paneled library is a showcase of master millwork and harkens back to the first-class smoking rooms aboard sumptuous ocean liners during the golden age of travel. Perhaps the best example of old-world craftsmanship blended with modern conveniences is found in the chef’s kitchen, where bespoke, inlaid furniture-grade cabinetry and quartz countertops host Wolf, Miele, and Thermador appliances. Herringbone Chevron oak floors and a mudroom complete with an additional full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer complete the main level. Upstairs, the owner’s retreat boasts an intimate sitting room, a warm cherry oak marbleized fireplace, and lush views of the rear lawn via either the wall of windows or a private balcony ideal for morning cappuccinos. The marble-lined owner’s bath flows into a spectacular custom dressing room with built-ins and a center island of its own. Elegantly proportioned, ethereal guest bedrooms served by luxurious marble ensuite baths complete the upper level. The lower level is a central location for entertaining, with its restaurant-sized bar, sitting area with a marble fireplace, and a dedicated billiards room. A professional fitness center is located on the level as well. The rear exterior is where the magic can truly be found, hosting a covered loggia, natural marble pavers running throughout, and a Lewis Aquatech designed lap pool with fountains and automatic cover. Separate pool and carriage houses provide additional accommodation. The main showstopper is a custom 200,000-gallon freshwater pond served by industrial-grade filtration and computer-controlled well systems running throughout the ten-acre property. Two additional custom ponds — one 12,000 gallons and the other 5,000 — establish a tranquil backdrop to the sprawling lawn. Not a penny has been spared in creating what must be one of the most over-engineered residences in existence — everything has been built to the highest of standards, such as the 58-zone wireless irrigation system and million-dollar fountain network. The 50-year slate roof, septic system, propane tanks, seven zone geothermal HVAC, and custom Lepage windows are all amongst the millions of dollars spent upgrading the property to its current world-class standards. A commercial-grade Crestron audio/visual system allows for a true smart home, controlling cameras, HVAC, irrigation, Lutron lighting, surround sound, and televisions throughout the home. The sellers even went so far as to waterproof the basement from eight feet below and raise all interior ceilings. At night, 450 landscape lights illuminate the entire property, from the pond to the ionic columns flanking the main entrance. Attention to detail is what distinguishes a good home from a truly great one. The current owners left no stone unturned when making this property one-of-a-kind, ensuring every inch of its ten-acre expanse was finished to absolute perfection. Villa dei Leoni, like any collectible timepiece or fine work of art, is finite in quantity and irreplaceable in nature.
