Stately Georgian Colonial With Magnificent Presence
The statuesque elevation of this residence anchors the quiet, private enclave of this cul de sac community. From the sweeping oil and stone circular drive, entrance walls and immaculate landscaping to the gleaming hardwood floors, nine-foot ceilings, multiple French doors, oversized windows and exquisite millwork, the home reflects a sense of elegance and grandeur not often seen in modern homes.
Upon entering the home, a double wishbone staircase grandly sweeps from the marble foyer to the interior balcony above, while front-to-back views through the great room showcase the sparkling pool and pool house beyond. The central great room itself is spectacular with a tongue and groove cathedral ceiling and skylights, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and windows on every side. This room adjoins the elegant formal living room featuring a double-sided fireplace shared with the handsome office and adjacent round library rotunda. Additional public spaces include a formal dining room located near the gourmet chefs kitchen, which features new double wall ovens, an Asko dishwasher, Viking 6-burner gas cooktop and vent hood, as well as a SubZero integrated refrigerator. A contemporary backsplash and granite counters join a large island, breakfast bar and dining area to create a open and airy entertaining space with access to the level yard and expansive patio. Completing the level is a billiards room and two powder rooms.
Upstairs, the master suite includes a dressing room with multiple built-in wardrobes and a spectacular new master bath with radiant heated floors, a steam shower, bidet and commode, and double vanity with quartzite counters. Three additional bedrooms on this floor are either Jack & Jill or en-suite, with steam showers. There is also a spacious vaulted family room complete with a full bath that could function as an in-law or au pair suite. The walk up third floor includes the fifth bedroom and another full bath.
Outside, the fully fenced level park-like yard is second-to-none in both beauty and scale. A pool house with a kitchenette, living room and full bath enjoys both heating and air conditioning, as well as a full basement with all new pool equipment.
The rectangular Gunite pool and spa are set in a lovely stone coping and surrounded by a decorative brick wall adorned by beds of perennials and boxwood hedges. Specimen trees, mature hydrangeas, climbing hedges and ivy’s as well as sculptural planting beds add to the impressive nature of the property.
In a fabulous commute location to all points down county, as well just minutes to town center, this magnificent residence also includes NEST thermostats, remote security monitoring, heated coils for the copper roof and gutters over the garage, and heated roof pads. With no expense spared, and close to $2-million recently invested in upgrades, this is a spectacular home in an even more spectacular setting.
