This European estate is located in Country Place Estates, a private security-controlled enclave within walking distance of the Wichita Country Club & Wichita Collegiate School. The property went through a 3-year renovation by Hentzen Contractors transforming the home into a European Country Villa. There are exposed post and beam features and a unique cottage style slate roof with patinaed copper dormers that provide a European feel along with the custom copper guttering and cobblestone drive. The front stone courtyard features iron gates, accent fencing & an antique fountain from Bayard, France. Antiqued, red-painted Pella arched "eyebrow" French doors provide access to the courtyard. A stone turret vestibule invites you through custom distressed-wood doors into a beautiful entry hall with a hand-made, glazed Italian tile barrel ceiling complete with antique French light fixtures & reclaimed Italian terra cotta tile. Entering the home, you can enter into either the living room overlooking the front courtyard, or the great room complete with one of the four interior stone fireplaces. The custom kitchen has Viking appliances which feature double ovens, a built-in refrigerator & gas cook top. Custom-built cabinets and tumbled limestone countertops make this truly one of kind! The breakfast dining area is gorgeous with a vaulted wood covered ceiling and views of the back patio & pool. The outdoor kitchen is close at hand with a wet bar including an icemaker, fridge, and sink adjacent for both outdoor and main level entertaining. The dining room and additional living room have three French doors that can be opened onto the front courtyard. In addition, a conversation den is open to the kitchen and provides access to a sunroom complete with screened windows and another one of the four interior fireplaces. Located off of the kitchen is a powder bathroom, utility room with hook ups for two stackable washer and dryers, and a pantry with room for two fridges, pantry storage, and a cleaning closet then opening to the heated garage. A large master-suite is entered via a set of double arched doors into a private office overlooking the backyard pool then leading through another set of double arched doors into the master bedroom suite. The master has private access to both the hot tub & pool areas. It features exposed beams, and a stone fireplace with built-ins. A French armoire has been converted into a breakfast wet bar, accommodating a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The master bath has heated antique tile floors, a huge double steam shower with stone & handmade Italian glazed tile, a giant jacuzzi tub & gas fireplace. There is a separate dressing room & table next to his and hers walk in closets with custom clothes storage. The main floor also has two large bedrooms & a full bath. There is a formal dining room and a formal living room. There are 2 additional bedrooms and baths on the 2nd level with a “Juliet” balcony overlooking the pool. The basement is made for entertaining! The basement is reminiscent of a European style underground bar with exposed beams and stone arches and walls. The bar area has a full kitchen, and there are multiple spaces for a card table, dining, pool table, dance floor, band area, karaoke, darts, etc.! There is a large, mirrored exercise room, dry sauna, stand-up tanning bed & bonus room to finish out the lower level. The backyard is a European retreat with dry-laid stone walls & a pool that is 18 feet deep. The pool features an artisan crafted waterfall, diving rock, & stone decks. A “grotto” with a stone & Italian tile hot tub which can be accessed via the pool deck through rustic shutter doors & a set of enchanting French 17th century iron doors. A large stone backyard courtyard provides areas for dining& a majestic stone & brick wood burning fireplace capped with antique European chimney pots & a large cast stone lion inset.
