The home at 4316 Lake Lawrence Circle is a Mediterranean jewel off Coursey Boulevard near Sherwood Forest. The home has a stunning pool courtyard, lake views and an eclectic style with something for everyone. Ideal for entertaining, the home has hosted parties with 200 invited guests.

The entertaining begins just inside the custom 100-year-old cypress and iron front doors. Entry is made not into the main home, but into a fabulous pool courtyard bordered by 11 arches. The home has a total of 36 archways inside and out.

The courtyard is surrounded by a brick fence for total privacy. The curving pool is made of mosaic tile that matches those in a round spa with a waterfall that splashes into the pool. A brick-edged aggregate deck surrounds the pool.

Around back, two patios overlook a quiet inlet of Lake Sherwood, where upscale homes line the shore. Copper gutters keep rainwater at bay, and a boardwalk and bulkhead line the home’s lake frontage.

Entry to the home is near the formal dining room at the bottom of a custom limestone and iron stairway that winds around a piano cove to the second floor. Limestone flooring extends right into the formal dining room and through three elegant archways into the living room.

The living room has a marble tile fireplace on one wall, and views of the pool courtyard through big windows. The opposite wall leads to a sun porch with views of the lakefront and patios. It’s an architectural element that is repeated upstairs, meaning just about every room in the home views either the lake or the pool.

Left of the entry is the kitchen and keeping area, a big space that is sure to be the center of family activity. Floored in engineered wood, the kitchen has an octagonal mosaic tile island and matching countertops and backsplashes. The appliance package includes a six-burner JennAir electric cooktop, a microwave-over-oven wall combo and a Bosch dishwasher. A triple stainless sink is below a window that overlooks the lake.

The nearby keeping room has built-in book cases and cabinetry, as well as a wet bar and an entertainment center.

Meanwhile, there are two master bedrooms – one downstairs and one upstairs – as well as a third bedroom. The downstairs master has two baths, one handicapped accessible shower and one with a tub and shower combination. Floors in the master bath are stained and scored concrete.

The third bedroom, which is near a hall bath, has a computer nook and views of the pool courtyard.

Meanwhile, the upstairs master bedroom has parquet floors and views of the lake and pool on opposite sides. The pool side has an open veranda overlooking the pool, while the lake side has an enclosed sun porch with arched windows.

The upstairs master bath has more mosaic tile around a soaker tub and a walk-in shower. There are two walk-in closets along a short hall from the bedroom.

The home has a two-car garage, lots of storage and a whole-home generator for when the lights go out. If you’d like to see this unique and luxurious home for yourself, Jerry del Rio and her team from Engel & Volkers will keep it open today from 2-4 p.m.
