This exquisite 6-bedroom custom home with private pool was just completed in July of 2014. Elegance and ease were the goals of the project – designed for families who love to entertain and enjoy all that Watercolor has to offer. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, this home, known as “High Cotton,” has an amazing lot that backs up to a nature preserve which allows you to enjoy complete privacy on the large porches and at the pool. 

Bevolo gas lanterns and gracious front porches greet you on arrival, with parking and carport that can accommodate up to 7 vehicles.Once inside, you encounter 12-foot ceilings in the foyer and kitchen, which then soar to 22 feet in the beautiful den that overlooks the pool and nature preserve. 

In the kitchen, Juliska glass lanterns float over the extensive quartzite kitchen counters, and the numerous drawers and cabinets offer guests more items and utensils than any chef could ever need. As enthusiastic foodies themselves, the owners have made every effort to anticipate the needs of their guests in having the kitchen equipped with high-end extras such as: a Breville blender, a wine aerator, a 48 bottle capacity wine cooler, a Wolf cook top and double oven with warming drawer, a Subzero refrigerator/freezer, an ice maker, two dishwashers and a walk in pantry.
