Residing in Chesterfield, this brick-and-stone abode holds court over a pristine lawn, including a backyard oasis complete with a heated pool, waterfalls, a spa, a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen. Imagine waking up inside the sleek master suite, where a big bay window allows you to greet the beauty of the day. Between the custom closet and fabulous bath, you’ll be hard-pressed to leave your refuge. Yet once you do, the contemporary design of each living space rewards you with a new way to kick back. The glamorous see-through fireplace divides the living room from the hearth room, dining area and gourmet kitchen. Channel your inner Barefoot Contessa as an audience of loved ones watches from the 10-foot-by-six-foot center island in the kitchen area. After you’ve tucked into a drool-worthy meal, usher everyone down to the finished lower level, which boasts a recreation room and a kitchen, with a bar. This residence is an entertainer’s dream.

This 6-bedroom, 5 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in Chesterfield is listed for $1.389 million.
