My Notes

Linwood rests on 12.62 sprawling acres of pristine lakefront property in the enchanting gated community of magnificent, multi-acre estates called Conyers Farm. This enthralling Neo-Classic estate was built with the preservationist in mind with admiration and innate respect for the natural splendor of the land and its surrounding environs. Visual brilliance is evident throughout, most notably in the tiered gardens, stone embankments and myriad of footpaths. A trellised pool house and four season solarium offer striking vistas of the sparkling, unspoiled waters of Lake Converse making this an ideal setting for gracious year-round entertaining.
Completed in 1994, the entire property emanates a majestic presence while maintaining the charm and appeal of a country lakefront home. Each finely crafted detail was hand selected under the guidance of noted New York designer, Kenneth Alpert, utilizing inspirations from California. Built by world renowned New York architect and planner, Robert Lamb Hart, the estate radiates a unique individuality in both the spectacular grounds, carved out of virgin woodlands, and the palatial 12,560 sq. ft. manse, offering seven sublime bedrooms, seven luxury full baths and four designer half baths.
Stone ledges and steps lead to seemingly endless woodland paths ideal for enjoying Nature at her finest. Nestled in a magical setting with mood lighting and views of the lake, an inviting Pebble Tec in-ground pool with intricately patterned brick patio offers a perfect spot for relaxation or visiting with friends on the veranda of the delightful pool house with everything needed for entertaining and personal comfort.
Welcoming guests with a large circular courtyard and massive front portico, the residence opens through double doors into the enthralling two story foyer with a sweeping circular staircase. The inlaid marble and wood floors are illuminated by a soaring California inspired window above the entry. Its design and height are echoed in the large windows seen throughout the home, many overlooking the lake. An elegant gallery running perpendicular to the foyer provides access to most of the first floor, which includes a ballroom-sized sunken living room with coffered ceiling, stone fireplace and lake views, an imposing formal dining room with a magnificent cove-lit dome ceiling embellished with a hand-painted mural. Central to the floor plan, a stunning two-story library with wet bar provides a perfect spot for a game of cards and flows from the living room into the great room. Aptly named, this two-story great room is flooded with sunlight through a soaring bay window that showcases gleaming hardwood floors and a second floor balcony. Double doors open to the delightful and spacious four-season solarium, with brick floors and built-in barbecue, plus access through a wide archway into the sun-drenched, custom crafted gourmet kitchen with its large center island. An exquisite mahogany-paneled study with lake views, an inviting guest suite with bath, and three powder rooms complete the first floor. The second floor includes three gorgeous bedrooms with baths en suite and the palatial, romantic master suite. This luxurious retreat offers a delightful sitting room with fireplace, a lovely master bedroom with French doors to a private balcony, ample closets, and two lavish designer baths offering every amenity for sublime comfort. Half-way between the two levels off a rear staircase, the generous two-bedroom, one bath caretaker?s suite is conveniently located.
