Designed by notable architect Robert A M Stern, this modern day oasis is the perfect description of this beautiful five bedroom home. Located only an hour from Manhattan and set back on three level, tree lined acres, the recently developed property includes a propane-fed firepit and a refreshing gunite saltwater pool and spa with automatic covers. Shimmering in the sunlight they reflect the outdoor kitchen, which provides hours of gastronomic fun with a pizza oven, 2 burners, refrigerator drawers, an ice maker and a sink. You can even cook the produce from your very own vegetable garden! And when it gets too hot, sidle up to the gracious covered porch with a beadboard ceiling, an outdoor TV and two ceiling fans.
The unique entry door to the residence reveals an open floor plan with nine-foot ceilings, multiple fireplaces, subtle paint colors and designer touches throughout. The living room is bright and airy with multiple French doors to the covered patio, and the formal dining room with sliding French doors on each side, creates an intimate feeling for relaxed conversation with friends and family.
The spacious kitchen was well ahead of its time with a large breakfast area offering sightlines to the massive granite island with plenty of seating and storage. An abundance of counter space and creamy cabinetry compliment the two SubZero refrigerators and two freezer drawers, as well as a Wolf gourmet 6-burner gas cooktop with a grill, Miele dishwasher, two Dacor wall ovens, and a convection microwave. Made for entertaining, it is the perfect place for intimate casual meals or for staff to circulate. In addition, the adjoining relaxed family room includes a wood burning fireplace, built-in media center and easy access to both the upper and lower levels of the home.
Mastering the art of comfortable sleep, the master suite exudes relaxation with a dressing room for easy storage, and a spa-like marble master bath that includes a deep soaking tub, steam shower, double marble-top vanity and a separate commode. It is joined by two additional bedrooms, a hall bath, plus a guest suite with a full bath through a comfortably sized hall leading to the “laundry nook” with folding counters and storage.
Not to be outdone the lower level lives like a complete floor, walking out to the two-car detached garage or into the two-car attached garage! A huge mudroom gives way to a kitchenette with a mini fridge and a wine chiller, as well as a sink and cabinetry. A private office with a full bath can also be used as an additional bedroom if you so desire. In addition, a huge playroom joins a temperature-controlled wine cellar and exercise room to complete the level.
The recently built two-car detached garage includes the latest in insulated post and beam construction. Along with a vaulted second story, currently used as a golf simulator room, it houses a new propane fed furnace, central AC, hot and cold running water and a radiant heated floor. Along with “Control 4” home automation, which controls audio and video throughout the entire property, extensive outdoor LED lighting, a whole home automatic generator, and so much more, this property is ready for the next era in technological living.
