Perched serenely at the top of a hill in Ward Acre Farms, this beautiful home is the epitome of elegance and sophistication. Lovely millwork and paneling, oversized windows, a serene location and attention to detail at every turn create a masterful showpiece that is the residence on Golf Lane.
A dramatic two-story foyer in the marble entry sets the stage for the sophisticated approach to design that follows throughout the home. An elegantly curved front staircase sweeps to the second floor balcony, while front–to-back views showcase the bluestone patio, stone walls and wooded landscape surrounding the property. 9-foot ceilings, glass transoms and hardwood floors also add to the ambiance of this spectacular residence.
Moving into the home, a pair of French doors open to the stately library, which includes cherry wood built-in cabinets and a fireplace with a custom designed mantle and granite surround. The formal living and dining rooms are serviced by a wonderful butlers pantry with a wine fridge, brass sink and ample cupboard space, and enjoy views of the yard and pool through multiple oversized windows and French doors. The spacious kitchen and breakfast rooms step down to a family room featuring a vaulted ceiling, arched entryways, a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace and French doors to the patio. The kitchen itself includes granite counters, a huge Cherry wood island with a prep sink, ample cabinetry, and a breakfast bar that can easily seat four. The Dacor professional, stainless steel appliances include a 5-burner gas cooktop, two wall ovens, a warming drawer and microwave. An integrated refrigerator also accompanies an Asko dishwasher. A wine rack, desk, and large pantry complete this space. A main floor guest suite features a full bath, while two elegant powder rooms, mudroom, two back staircases, and a main floor laundry complete the level.
A Gorgeous Place To Retire
The spacious upper level of the home features large bedrooms and a bonus room that can be accessed via a front, back or third staircase off the kitchen. The master suite includes a double-door entry to a sitting room with gas log fireplace, which in turn opens to the master bedroom via French doors. Two oversized, walk-in closets complement the spacious marble bath with a large soaking tub, glass walled shower, double vanities, make up counter and separate commode with bidet. The additional bedrooms feature Jack and Jill or ensuite baths and plenty of closet space. The large bonus room overlooks the front yard and comes complete with a full bath, large closet and built-in cabinetry. With easy access to the kitchen, it’s perfect as a second family room or exercise room.
A Great Place To Entertain
Bring on the summer! A substantial bluestone terrace featuring a built-in grill is surrounded by stone walls, while a path leads down to the large rectangular Gunite pool and spa with a Pebble Tech finish. The home’s park-like, private setting and level backyard are the perfect place to entertain your guests, and with 2.33 acres allows for plenty of room to explore outdoor hobbies. On cooler days, the finished lower level recreation room includes a coffered ceiling, wainscot, built-in cabinets, a large games room and a full height ceiling.
