Full description:

?Island Dream? is a magnificently designed home located on Governors Island, one of Lake Norman?s most luxurious gated communities. Every detail thoughtfully considered throughout by the renowned designer Jim Phelps. After months of planning and preparation the design was then brought to life by one of Charlotte?s finest builders in 2013.

As you arrive the impressive architectural design creates the expectation of what awaits you inside. Custom Iron double entry doors lead into the foyer and you will immediately take notice of the three story walnut circular staircase with handcrafted beautiful wood turret, accentuated by the polished travertine flooring over looking expansive views of the lake. The transitional open design has inviting, yet sophisticated style, with the gourmet kitchen, adjacent entertainment bar with its double granite counters and stunningly detailed custom cabinetry by one of North Carolina?s most respected cabinet makers. Equally impressive is the glass wine cellar offering an extra touch of elegance. Truly gourmet kitchen with double island, Thermador Professional Series appliances, and custom handcrafted zinc range hood highlighted by the glass tile. French All-Clad doors lead to one of the many terraces with built-in grill and a linear fireplace to enjoy fall and winter evenings. The Master Suite conveniently located on the main level with lots of windows to take in the morning sunrise and lake views. Enjoy the spa-like bathroom with freestanding soak tub, dual entry shower offering multiple control of a rain shower and body sprayers as you stand on the stone inlayed floor. His and Her master closets have been carefully designed with built-ins and detail to hold the largest of wardrobes.

The circular staircase takes you to the third level with a reading nook, and the views continue from a Juliette balcony. The guest suites offer top level finishes, beautiful lake views, comfortable sitting areas, custom built-in work stations, and lavish bathrooms. The third level also includes two offices with custom built-in cabinetry (one with built-in Coffee / Wine Bar), and granite top desks that are perfect to run your business right out of the home. (These could easily be converted to bedrooms.) Each office/bedroom has its own terrace entrance, one of the many ways this home continues to bring outdoor living inside. Nearby, the exercise room would be a great way to start your day, and offers custom built-in wet bar.

From the third level you have the option to take the beautiful elevator or the grand staircase to the main or lower level. In the lower level you will take notice of the expansive European travertine throughout which leads to the stunning pool and deck area continuing a seamless elegant look. This area offers the same lavish detail as the other floors, and at the same time creates the perfect atmosphere for entertaining, including the billiard area, great room with an oversized commercial grade linear fireplace and custom built-ins. The custom bar offers multi-zone wine and beverage center, ice maker, dishwasher, microwave and pantry with vintage view wine storage.

One of your most extraordinary entertainment experiences awaits in the state of the art theater. Enjoy the latest movies with the illusion of a starry night created by the handmade star ceiling. The luxurious theater tiered rocking chairs will allow you to relax for full enjoyment and an amazing experience. The TruAudio speaker system, Dragonfly 120? acoustic weave screen and JVC Professional Projector are all instrumental in creating an amazing theater experience.

As you move through the home you will come to appreciate the modern convenience of the Control 4 system which offers unique fully customizable experiences such as turning on/off all the lights in the entire home from one ease place. Set the tone for a relaxing home environment with the touch pad for the audio anywhere in the home. The ability to manage the security by setting and disarming the alarm system from your smart phone or touch pad. The extensiveness of such an expertly designed system offers items such as over 20 programmable sensor points, 120 meg dual internet access, etc. The sellers are generously offering a three hour overview with the Hotwired team who installed the Control 4 system created to give an experience like no other.

Enjoy the outdoor living space hot tub with cascading waterfall onto the sunbathing platform, stunning pool with water features, underwater lighting, and two fire bowls. This home was designed with low maintenance in mind by utilizing artificial grass around the pool, Belgard stone pathways, and European travertine pool and terrace decking.

Again, every detail considered with the low maintenance fixed pier, composite decking, two heavy duty cable boat lifts, two jet-ski lifts, and custom kayak rack.

This home is a masterpiece that will provide you years of enjoyment!
