Only an hour to Manhattan, this impeccably built Heritage Homes residence – designed by award- winning architect Jeff Mose – is second-to-none when it comes to quality craftsmanship and design. As compared to a lot of other grand homes, this residence evokes a real feeling of sensibility in design – spacious living where you need it, while still respecting the scale and intimacy of a comfortable home.
Attention To Detail
Entering through the mahogany door, a central stair draws your eye up to a unique interior balcony on the upper level and the house seems to unfold before your eyes. Crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces, bow windows, glass transoms, paneling, built-ins and a transitional color palette lend a sophisticated feel. The exquisite crown moldings perfectly complement the 9-foot ceilings and Brazilian cherry floors. The perfectly proportioned rooms include formal living and dining rooms, a study, an impressive gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, butler’s pantry, family room, mudroom and even a wrapping closet to make holidays a breeze.
The master wing features a spacious bedroom, two walk-in closets, a fireplace and a marble master bath with a deep soaking tub, double vanity, views of the grounds and a seamless glass shower with multiple showerheads. Three additional ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets are also found on the second level. A second family room and additional home office with a half bath are also located here. The finished third level includes an expansive dormitory bedroom including a dressing area and full bath -perfect as a nanny suite.
The 9-foot ceilings continue into the lower level of the home where you will find a games room, kitchenette, media room and a half bath. Outside, the park-like property gives way to a 20×40 foot heated in-ground swimming pool complete with blue-flecked Gunite lending an iridescent sparkle to your summer fun. A large bluestone patio allows for hours of entertaining, made even more enjoyable with exterior speakers. Truly, a most perfect escape from the everyday!
