Homewood Estate – Refined Country Living in a Premier Location
Meticulously restored, this gracious estate is the ultimate in refined country living. Beautifully sited on 3.22 level acres, the home is just minutes from the Silver Spring Country Club and in a great NYC commute location.
A sweeping mahogany staircase leads to a Grand Landing framed by original millwork and Palladian window seating, while the original parlors on each side of the entry have been converted to a wonderful Study/Office and formal Dining Room. Fourteen original fireplaces adorn various rooms throughout the home, as do numerous original and reproduction casings, millwork and cabinetry.
The Family Room, with a unique reading Room attached, opens to the wrap-around porch. The completely renovated gourmet Chef’s Kitchen, with a pass through to a Butler’s Pantry, features professional appliances, marble flooring, wood paneling, and a magnificent island. The showpiece of the home is the opulent Elsie de Wolfe-designed Ballroom surrounded by French Doors and an elegant Sunken Garden.
The second floor features a Master Wing with his and hers closets, a sitting room, two spa-like baths, and balcony. Two additional Bedrooms flank a Jack & Jill Bathroom in the main corridor, while a separate Children’s Wing with ensuite bedrooms and living area, as well as Au Pair accommodations complete the level.
A fabulous Swimming Pool, surrounded by perennials gardens, is serviced by a Poolhouse with full Kitchen and Bath, and outdoor Dressing Rooms. Magnificent landscaping, sound system, and Port Cochère to an unattached 3-car garage complete this serene enclave. Truly a one of a kind offering.
