Impressive Country Club Living At The End Of A Quiet Cul De Sac
Stone walls flank a paver-stone drive and welcome you to this most impressive residence. The Nantucket Stone & Shingle style design perfectly complements the custom millwork, high-end finishings and beautiful scale of the home while Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, large 12-pane divided light windows, 9-foot ceilings and a transitional color palette bring a sense of graciousness and elegance.
As you walk through the property it is easy to envision hosting either a large party or an intimate gathering. With multiple French doors opening to a terraced bluestone and paver patio, an abundance of natural light floods into the home creating a sense of warmth and welcome. The scale of the rooms is also perfect; from the cozy formal living room with a marble fireplace and built-ins, to the impressive cathedral-ceilinged family room. The dining room is perfectly situated to take advantage of a nearby wet-bar, while events are easily catered in the spacious kitchen which includes two large islands, professional-grade appliances, a walk-in pantry and a breakfast room. A handsome mahogany library and two powder rooms complete the level, while a mudroom offers access to the three-car garage, the side vegetable garden, and a rear staircase to the upper floors.
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom includes walls of windows for a light and airy feel as well as a fireplace, sitting area, 9-foot ceilings, a fabulous boutique-style walk-in closet, and a magnificent marble master bath with a Jacuzzi tub, expansive double vanity, oversized glass shower and separate water closet. The additional bedrooms continue to showcase the exquisite moldings and paneling seen elsewhere in the house and all include on-trend ensuite baths. The third floor features a bonus room plus the fifth bedroom and ensuite bath.
In the lower level, a homework center and games room enjoys a fireplace, while the adjoining paneled office offers a multitude of storage. The media room includes a projector and big screen, and adjoins a full bath, gym and temperature controlled wine cellar.
Outside, the meticulously groomed 1.5 acres borders the Silver Spring Country Club. Three terraces form a large entertaining space with the upper level bluestone terrace including a built-in Lynx gas grill, as well as stone walls, professional landscaping and direct access to the house through multiple French doors for a true indoor/outdoor experience. The mid-level paver stone terrace provides additional relaxation space, while including a built-in bar fridge and sink, and the lower level terrace is for the more adventurous at heart offering a full bar with beer taps, and access to the lighted bocci ball and sport courts. Granite stepping-stones throughout the beautifully sculpted gardens provide access to a fenced vegetable garden, as well as flat lawns and stone wall benches. It is truly a magnificent entertaining space!!
Close to town with easy access to major highways and trains for NYC commuters, this residence delivers in all regards.
