Residing on more than an acre within a premier gated community of Town and Country, this impressive brick manse commands attention with stately columns and a fountain to greet guests upon arrival. Glide through the grand 2-story entry foyer, which pulls you up the sweeping staircase or leads you across marble flooring into the dining room. Ruminate in the library, with a wood tray ceiling, or chill in the 2-story great room, which offers dramatic views through Palladium windows. Entertaining is never dull with a gourmet kitchen at your disposal, boasting high-end appliances and granite counters. The lower level proves the real draw with an incredible spread, including stone walls, a fireplace and walk-behind bar, family and game rooms, a workout room and Aspen spa , plus a billiards room. At last, slip into the suite life inside the master bedroom, with his-and-her closets and vanities. Luxury is ever-present in this magnificent residence. Learn more at the open house on Oct. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m.

This 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom home in Town and Country is listed for $1.575 million.
