The lowdown: Unparalleled privacy, unsurpassed quality, and utmost security are woven seamlessly throughout this extraordinary estate nestled in the middle of 30 pristine acres, all within 10 short minutes of the San Antonio International Airport. Enhanced with loggias off every main living area, the home, known as Palazzo Di Campagna, surrounds an infinity edge pool with hand-laid mosaic glass tile and overlooks a scenic lake. The home is crafted with only the finest materials throughout, from the imported French clay tile roof; Venetian plaster walls; exotic stones and marbles; stunning millwork; Downsview custom cabinetry; and Miele, Viking, and SubZero appliances to the lush, tropical landscaping.
Underground, a wine cellar is encompassed by rock and concrete with a barrel vaulted ceiling, limestone walls, dining room seating for 12, separate spaces for over 2,000 wine bottles, and additional space for storing cases, a temperature-controlled wine room with custom lighting, a kitchenette, and a powder room.
Another way to relax is in the yoga room, which is equipped with LED star lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows, or the fully equipped exercise room with mirrors, custom lighting, and ceiling fans. A separate massage and barber room features a copper-tiled backsplash, sealed copper countertop, and complete facilities for a professional barber or hairstylist.
Retreat to the octagon-shaped master bedroom, with its access to a private wraparound loggia, brick-styled ceiling, automatic blackout shades, end-cut mesquite block floors, and plastered walls. The luxurious his-and-hers master bathroom sports its own coffee bar, a steam and sauna room, outdoor rock shower, self-standing cast-iron tub, double-entry shower with custom etched glass, and extensive closets. In their own suite, guests can enjoy the Romeo & Juliet balcony, automatic blackout drapery, and ensuite bath with extensive custom cabinetry, tile sink, Von Morris hardware, Aquatic Whirlpool bath, and walk-in stone and glass shower.
The dual, oversized, four-car garage and motor court area is centered by a picturesque cascading waterscape island with gas-fired copper water bowls. A handy utility room has its own dog wash area and kennel with outside access, ensuring that even four-legged family members feel pampered.
