Magical Indian Springs Estate
Resting S Ranch is a 35-acre estate in the heart of the protected and coveted area of Indian Springs. Set against the backdrop of Oak Mountain and the 10,000-acre Oak Mountain State Park, the property is a sanctuary of privacy.
Passers-by can only guess what lies inside the gates—beyond the trees and over the handsome bridge. The long driveway winds through pastures with horses and donkeys; past an enchanting waterfall and a spring-fed pond, home to swans and geese. The drive is bordered by a mature pecan grove planted alongside the classic stack-stone fencing the owner brought from the Historical Registry of Lexington, Kentucky.
The centerpiece of the estate is the 13,000-square-foot home: an architectural masterpiece that joins cutting-edge electronics and commercial-grade building with art-quality finishes and details.
The exterior of the home is Spanish cedar and stone, the roof slate and copper. Special finishes include massive handcrafted doors with custom French cast bronze hardware, sweeping staircase, Sherle Wagner fixtures, magnificent 18th-century mantel, rare antique chandeliers, lanterns, and exquisite coffered ceilings and moldings.
Many of the special spaces of the home are designed for easy daily living, such as the master suite—complete with exercise room, hobby/craft room, steam room and a private portico for watching glorious sunrises. Then, there’s the sleeping porch, theater room, iconic observation tower, elevator and the 68-foot rear porch with fireplace and fire pit.
The fully equipped commercial kitchen allows for easy entertaining on a large scale, and the recreational pastures are great for outdoor parties. Under massive pin oaks are giant twin cooking pits, rope swings, a croquet lawn, fishing pond, orchards, flower and vegetable gardens, and mountain views.
Legend purports the Resting S site was once a sacred ceremonial Native American ground. Watching the rising mist over the pond or experiencing the sunset over Oak Mountain, it’s easy to believe the lore.
