Wonderful Vintage Colonial Updated For Modern Living
Offering a stately presence, this magnificent vintage Colonial home offers the best of modern living, while capturing the charm of yesteryear. Classic lighting fixtures, beautiful wide-board hardwood floors, a multitude of large divided-light windows and intricate moldings lend a classic touch, while a transitional color palette, a beautifully renovated kitchen – as well as all bathrooms – and a lovely design aesthetic are perfectly suited to today’s tastes.
The main floor offers great flow for entertaining and features two sets of double-sided fireplaces with classic wood mantles, as well as an additional fireplace in the family room. The adjoining updated, white and marble kitchen and breakfast room includes an expansive island and ample cabinets, as well as high-end stainless steel appliances. The spacious rear deck offers views of the serene gunite pool beyond and can be accessed via the kitchen or family room. Rounding out the main floor are a living room, dining room, den or study, and a powder room.
The second and third floors of the home continue in the vintage tradition with all renovations keeping the original ambiance of the home. On the second level, two ensuite bedrooms with marble baths join a central sitting room with access to a rooftop terrace, and an expanded master suite with three large closets, a dressing room and a whimsical bath including painted wood floors, a double vanity with Carerra marble counters, a deep clawfoot soaking tub and a separate stall shower with white subway tile. The third floor includes a central playroom, laundry, two additional bedrooms that share an updated marble hall bath, and an au paire suite with a full bath, living room and bedroom.
Moving outside, the lush property includes a classic rectangular gunite pool and beautiful mature trees. A three-car detached garage joins a fourth bay in a separate structure for ample parking. Located close to major commuting routes, this home seamlessly combines the old and the new for anyone who appreciates the quality, workmanship and aesthetic of a beautifully maintained vintage home brought to life.
