8606 Wingate presents the rare opportunity to live the resort lifestyle that noted architect/designer Paul Duesing is known for creating all over the world. Located on a leafy, landscaped corner lot in Bluffview, this property is composed of two wonderful structures. Part English Colonial/part Shingle Style, this home and the guest house beyond exude sophistication and grace, along with a huge helping of fun.
From the first crunch of tires on the gravel motor court one begins to sense a shift in time. Lush landscaping frames the property and sets off this utterly unique, welcoming home. The black and white tiled foyer opens to bright, high-ceilinged spaces that beckon you to relax. Gleaming woodwork and walls, pine floors, 2 fireplaces, and numerous doorways and windows overlooking the lush grounds are just a few of the features that create this “world away.” From the lacquered wet bar with its deep bookshelves and space for a baby grand to the airy, tiled sunroom, one feels transposed to another time. Brick patios wrap the rear of the home. The pool winks at you through the numerous kitchen doors as you see the guesthouse beyond.
Wide plank reclaimed floors and doors create a delightful warmth in the guest house. Pitched high ceilings and crisp painted board walls form the backdrop. A sitting area, bedroom, kitchenette and spacious bath/dressing area comprise the floorplan-perfect for lucky guests and with flexibility to become a studio, office or cabana. The 2-car climate-controlled garage is attached.
