Elegantly restored beyond the studs, architectural designer Monty Gaither transformed incredible function, access and endless space, into a timeless, architecturally rich, traditional showplace beaming from a prime corner in the Fairway of University Park. Extensive stone terracing, stately custom knotty Alder doors with leaded beveled glass, adorn the impressive entrance framed by professionally designed azalea gardens and mature trees.
