Detailed Description: 

Located in the magnificent private enclave of Lyford Cay, Le Rochefort exudes old world charm and elegance through use of classic British Colonial style architecture.  The 10,000 square foot mansion is deeply ensconced on a 1.2 acre, fully enclosed, hill top parcel partially hidden from the winding driveway with lush landscaping and private gardens comprised of native shrubs, fruit trees, and palms.  Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the interior of the residence.  Generous crown and dentil moldings, soaring vaulted and tray ceilings and a surplus of arched windows along with cove lighting and gold chandeliers create a bright, airy and open space while retaining a sophisticated atmosphere.  The intricate marble flooring, custom wall paneling, door molding and gilded sconces only add to the appeal.  The elegant front courtyard accessed by steps leading from the winding drive, features columns, Palladian style doors and a magnificent running fountain surrounded by greenery.  A wonderfully peaceful place to relax.  The sumptuous furnishings are done in striped patterns, pastel colors and floral prints while the paint treatments set off by bright white moldings help to create the mood for each space.  The eye-catching bric-a-brac nestled alongside more costly pieces give the mansion a "homey" feel. Built to support premier social events and entertaining on a grand scale, Le Rochefort boasts a large great room, formal dining room and gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances along with wine cellar.  The expansive master suite, geared toward secluded relaxation, pampers homeowners with a private library, sitting porch, dressing area with skylight and substantial walk-in closet. The spacious pool area is great for outdoor entertaining and comes equipped with a fully functional cabana with mini kitchen, bathroom, wet bar and charcoal grill.  Additional amenities of this 5-bed, 8-bath home include a three-car garage with elevator, exercise room, staff apartment with kitchen and full bath, 150KW generator, 75,000-gallon underground cistern, water purification system, irrigation network, intercom and security system.  Residents of Lyford Cay are privileged to enjoy fine dining, championship golf, community tennis courts and a full-service marina all in a secure, private community.
