Adding to the rarefied atmosphere is a wood-paneled library with coffered ceilings, a gourmet kitchen and a spacious master suite.

Outdoors, the backyard includes a covered loggia as well as an infinity-edge swimming pool that overlooks nearby Sherwood Lake and the 12th hole of the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.
