Cypress Hill at Reynolds Lake Oconee is, simply put, a stunning creation. The result of a three-year project completed in early 2018, the 15,000-square-foot home is a dream property for anyone who desires a glamorous life on the water.

A majestic grand hall welcomes guests into a house that oozes European elegance, from the 30-foot-tall double groin vault ceiling and handforged iron chandeliers to the scagliola cast stone fireplace and curved staircase with custom ironwork, all presented on imported Italian travertine flooring. The combination of architectural details—the handiwork of premier builder DreamBuilt—and design by Shane Meder of Black Sheep Interiors results in a space that balances ornate, old-world charm with the comfort and warmth of a modern retreat.

Including the well-appointed carriage apartment, Cypress Hill comprises seven suites, eight full baths and three half-baths. Throughout the home, expansive views of Lake Oconee greet guests at every turn, promising glorious sunrises and glowing sunsets. On the main level, floor-toceiling rolling glass doors allow for seamless indoor-outdoor living between the great room and 1,200-square-foot lanai, which leads to a saltwater infinity-edge pool. An alfresco kitchen, a double-sided fireplace, and an additional living and dining area outfitted with phantom screens also lend themselves to entertaining. “Th e manor is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and a sandy beach area with fire pit, and is the perfect spot at the end of the day to get into your watercraft and enjoy a quick ride on the lake or to Th e Ritz- Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee,” adds listing agent Riezl Baker. Finally, a home office and a dedicated kids room for schooling or playing ensure the property is well-equipped for life in 2021.

Says Baker, “From the time you walk through the front door of Cypress Hill, you are enveloped in unassuming, timeless elegance and are immediately connected to nature and the lake: a one-of-a-kind escape.” 1200 Parrotts Cove Road, Greensboro, $8,700,000, Riezl Baker, Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate Group, 706.347.2625, luxurylakeoconee.com
