Welcome to your own private getaway! This beautifully updated five-bedroom home sits close to the NY-CT state line and offers everything you could want in a full time or weekend residence.
Double entry doors open to a warm and inviting foyer with front-to-back views of the grounds beyond. Featuring transitional paint colors and contemporary styling, the house is light and bright with just the right amount of classic detail. Latticed casement windows offer a quaint touch and hardwood floors flow throughout. The library is the perfect place to work from home, while the family room sits opposite and offers a cozy rock-walled fireplace for when you want to relax at the end of the day. The living room includes huge sliders to the rear patio and an additional fireplace, and connects to the spacious dining room also offering access to the outdoors. The eat-in kitchen is flooded with light and features granite counters, white cabinetry, two side-by-side SubZero refrigerator/freezers, double Thermador wall ovens, a cooktop, and an Asko dishwasher. In perfect proximity to the lofted Great Room is a full bath, which creates the perfect opportunity for an in-law or Au paire suite.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious with terrific closet space. The master suite offers a marble bath with separate glass shower and soaking tub, while the remaining four bedrooms share two updated, full baths between them. The lower level offers yet more space with a large rec room, sauna, and a gym, plus a workshop attaching to the mudroom and two-car garage with multiple built-in storage closets.
The spectacular setting is truly park-like with a full size, lighted tennis court, peaceful gazebo, gunite pool and spa, and a relaxing bluestone patio that wraps around to a second meditation patio with a natural, rugged waterfall and koi pond. Extensive perennial landscaping with grasses and plants that bloom from April until October creates a magical environment in which to enjoy every season. A secondary, gated, stone driveway leads directly to the tennis court, and an 8-foot fence provides solace and privacy from passers-by.
In a fabulous commute location to all points south and into NYC, and with so much to offer, this property is truly a bucolic escape from the everyday!
