Tucked into a spacious acre of lushly landscaped grounds, a grand estate with distinctly Mediterranean influences lies behind a stately gate and circular paver driveway with a large granite water fountain. Designed to accommodate an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the numerous patios, verandas and balconies create additional ~rooms~ for bringing both everyday living and grand scale entertaining out of doors. With five en suite bedrooms, six full baths and two powder rooms, two kitchens, six fireplaces, a solarium, indoor pool and a large sauna among the many amenities found across the three levels of living space, 76 Pettit Place is a bold residence unlike any other in its Princeton Ridge neighborhood. Detailed custom moldings, ceiling medallions and tens of exotic remote-controlled lighting and fans are sophisticated touches that draw the eye in nearly every room. The two-story great room is the centerpiece of the home, with other rooms radiating from it on both the main and second levels, creating the feel of an indoor courtyard where wide, arched doorways lead to other rooms on the main floor and skylights and transomed windows let in abundant natural light. A two-sided fireplace bridges the office and the great room. The solarium enjoys seasonal vistas from three sides, skylights, a private door to a balcony and outside, and a surprising pop of whimsy - a structural glass floor through which the heated indoor pool on the lower level can be viewed. The family room opens to the breakfast room and kitchen with large center island, built-in desk, glass-front cherry wood cabinetry, granite counters and stainless-steel appliances. French doors lead from the kitchen to the spacious balcony that accommodates banquet-sized dining and evokes thoughts of soirees under the stars with the majestic tree line formed by the preserved open space bordering the backyard serving as the most picturesque of backdrops. The second level houses the expansive master suite, three additional en suite bedrooms, a loft, and a second story ~pajama lounge~ with a wet bar that provides a cozier gathering space than the open floor plan of the main level. Two bedrooms share access to a balcony, while the master suite has its own balcony. The lower level of the home is home to the fifth en suite bedroom, a second kitchen, a family room with fireplace, a sauna, a full bath, a changing room and an indoor saltwater heated pool with sliding doors and private patio to bring the outdoors in during the warmer months. The lower level steps out onto the covered patio, with stairs to the mezzanine and ultimately the main level balcony, providing three levels of outdoor living space, not to mention a gazebo, a pergola, a swing and a gorgeous yard accentuated by sod lawn, exotic trees, flowering planting on arbors, and a 30-zone sprinkler system.
