Situated on 21 acres, the manor house at 740 Leigh Mill Rd. in Great Falls exudes the charm of a European country estate. While most of us can’t afford the $15 million price tag, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a peek inside.
As you drive through the gated entryway and down the winding driveway, you’ll notice the private pond and beautiful meadows that surround the home. The five-bedroom, nine-bathroom (five full bathrooms and four half-baths) home is full of intricate details and luxe amenities within the 9,665 square feet — but outdoors, you’ll find the private stable, pasture, and indoor arena with a skating rink.
The two-story great room is full of design details and amazing views. Timber frame beams contrast the wood-paneled ceiling. Reclaimed chestnut oak floors tie the whole room together.
This spacious kitchen has room for all of the cooks among your family and friends. With two sinks, and massive island, and a Wolf double oven, cooking any meal and the cleanup after will be a breeze.
One of five fireplaces resides in the breakfast nook. There is also a formal dining room with a connecting butler’s pantry.
You’ll find the study is a cozy place to relax and get your work done. The room features a stone fireplace and built-in shelves for your books and collections. The home also comes with a separate paneled library.
Across from the library is the hidden wine cellar. The cellar is climate-controlled and has more than enough storage for your vino collection.
The primary bedroom is fitted with a fireplace and enough room for a sitting area or vanity. All of the upstairs bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.
As beautiful as the inside of the house is, the backyard entertaining space definitely gives it a run for its money. The terrace includes an outdoor kitchen and plenty of space for designated seating areas. During the summer months, you’ll enjoy the in-ground pool and spa. Off to the side, you’ll find a fire pit with great views of the property.
Across the meadow, you’ll find a seven-stall horse stable. The beautiful structure comes with an adjoining outdoor riding ring and plenty of space for your horses to roam.
You won’t miss the recreation pavilion when you’re outside. Step in the building to find an indoor ice skating rink with a large viewing room for spectators. The rink comes fully equipped with a Zamboni to ensure the ice always stays shiny and smooth. If you don’t have a need for a rink, the space can also be transformed into an indoor riding ring, tennis court, or a venue for many other sports.
If you’re looking for a private spot to take in the beautiful views of the property, the pond provides the perfect secluded area to enjoy the great outdoors.
