Resort-style Tuscan in Bluffview Wows With Amenities and Privacy

Share News:

bluffviewIf one-acre of lush grounds anchored by a Tuscan Mediterranean showplace intentionally designed to feel like a resort sounds like heaven, the fact that it’s situated in Bluffview, and just a stones’ throw from an array of shopping and dining options whether you head north or south, probably solidifies that feeling.

And that’s just what Doris Jacobs with Allie Beth Allman & Associates has in her 5019 Shadywood Lane listing. Designed by Robbie Fusch and built by Randy Hughes, the home is surrounded by manicured grounds with plenty of mature trees, walkways, covered terraces, a Zen garden, and a lagoon-style pool and spa.

And that’s just the outside. 

The 7,772-square-foot, two-story home gets its good looks from the Tuscan exterior and the dramatic design choices inside, and its smarts from the deliberate and thoughtful use of solar power, smart home components, elevator, and Tesla charging station.

It’s beauty and brains.

It was built to showcase the deceptively scenic views of the lot the home sits on (and what Shadywood Lane is famous for), and also provides casual comfort for day-to-day living, but still dresses up quite nicely for entertaining, too. 

Downstairs, a formal dining room is punctuated by a barrel vault ceiling, while a study takes on the classic appeal of rich paneling, cross-beamed ceiling, bookcases, and French doors that lead to a Zen garden with fountain.

A generous great room feels even more spacious thanks to a vaulted beamed ceiling that opens to the outdoor spaces and to a chef’s kitchen complete with granite counters, Viking appliances, a butler’s pantry, walk-in pantry, breakfast bar, and wine closet.

The downstairs master suite is spacious and finished out with a chevron-patterned wood plank, vaulted beamed ceiling. An elevated sitting area features a cast stone fireplace with marble surround and overlooks the backyard. The en-suite boasts a marble spa bath, his and hers vanities, a circular jetted tub, separate double steam shower, water closet, and immense walk-in closet.

A guest suite is also downstairs, along with two more bedrooms upstairs. All three have their own en-suites and walk-in closets. An expansive iron-grilled balcony leads to an additional attached guest suite with a fifth bedroom as well as an oversized living room and a bathroom.

The home also has a fully-equipped media room with an illuminated mural ceiling and a wet bar, a game room with a balcony overlooking the backyard, a full utility room, and a mudroom.

Outside, there are even more entertaining options, including a covered terrace with an outdoor fireplace wall, an additional terrace with an outdoor kitchen, a saltwater lagoon-style pool, and a guest house that boasts a living room, kitchenette, bedroom, and bath.

The Bluffview home is priced at $5.2 million. To see more photos, check out the listing.
