Impressive Colonial On Private Cul-De-Sac

This beautiful transitional-style residence is tucked away in a private enclave at the NY border. Flanked by columns, the impressive Georgian entryway opens to a cathedral foyer with a stunning oil-rubbed bronze central chandelier. The open concept design of the home is enhanced by the blonde hardwood floors throughout, as well as crown molding, wainscot paneling and many large divided-light windows, all in a pristine three acre setting.

A spacious dining room with room for a grand table is accessed off the foyer, and sits opposite the slightly sunken formal living room. The living room is a light and bright space to retire and also offers access to the gourmet kitchen with an impressive marble-topped center island seating four and ample storage. It is accompanied by custom designed cabinetry topped with granite counters, professional appliances, a stainless hood, Sub Zero wine refrigerator and extra refrigerator drawers, SubZero refrigerator, and a gas range. The adjoining breakfast nook offers a convenient exit to the large rear deck overlooking the woodlands beyond, while the nearby laundry and butler’s pantry function nicely for a busy lifestyle.

Moving through to the sunken family room, a floor-to-ceiling, wood burning brick fireplace anchors the room, while multiple windows and a soaring vaulted ceiling create a sense of grandeur. The adjoining guest bedroom enjoys access to a private full bath with travertine tiles and a wonderful rainhead shower. It also offers a private entrance to the rear deck.

The central stairway leads to private spaces including a vaulted master suite enjoying a large walk-in closet and 12-foot ceilings in the renovated master bath. A double vanity with granite counters, as well as an oversized glass shower with multiple shower heads ensures a spa-like experience. The additional three bedrooms enjoy beautiful views and are joined by a third renovated full bath.

The finished lower level features a mudroom with superior storage closets off the three-car garage, as well as a half bath. A dry bar includes a microwave and small refrigerator perfect as a complement to both media and games rooms. Crown molding, wood flooring, granite counters and full size windows make this a great space to entertain and just hang out.

The large rear deck enjoys changing views all year long, from the stunning fall foliage as the leaves on the mature trees change color, to the peepers calling in the spring. In anticipation of a possible pool installation, the owners purchased a 1,000-gallon underground propane tank and already installed an electrical sub-panel to account for pool equipment. There is also a standby generator in case of a power outage. And being located only 1,000 feet from the New York border, commuting in Fairfield or Westchester counties and even into Manhattan is a breeze!
