Striking Nantucket-Style Stone & Shingle Gem By Noted Architect Robert A. M. Stern
A sophisticated residence with spectacular architectural detailing at every turn located on three idyllic acres.
The Heart Of The Home
A handsome shaker-style front door opens to 9-foot ceilings, random width stained oak floors, and multiple windows lending an open and airy feel to the residence.
The wonderful living room with stunning moldings, double glass French doors and a huge wood-burning fireplace with a beautiful Vermont slate surround leads to the spectacular 48ft kitchen! An entertaining masterpiece, the kitchen walks out to a magnificent slate veranda complete with ceiling fans and a beadboard ceiling. The kitchen itself boasts an18ft granite island with a breakfast counter, a large breakfast room, and a separate walk-in pantry. The Dacor double ovens, built-in microwave, Wolf 6-burner gas stove, two fridges and a Miele dishwasher will satisfy the most discerning of chefs. Commanding incredible views of the yard through a spectacular wall of windows spanning the length of the back of the house, the space is truly a splendor to behold. A formal dining room and stylish family room with custom built-in cabinetry and a large wood-burning fireplace are also accessed off the kitchen. A back hall connects the living room to the family room and allows access to an elegant powder room, completing the floor.
A Hallmark Of Great Architecture
The upper level can be accessed via both front and back staircases and the attention to detail is unwavering – stained oak newel posts, elegant wainscoting, windows seats, built-in storage and the use of interesting angles celebrate the fabulous architecture.
The elegant master suite commands wonderful views and is large enough to accommodate a sitting area. The oversized walk-in closet features all manner of built-ins and shelving, while the spa-like master bath uses numerous types of complementary stone, adding texture and interest. A double vanity, steam shower, and large oval tub make this a perfect place to relax.
Three beautifully appointed, large bedrooms have access to either ensuite or hall baths, while the wide hallway once again highlights exquisite design by integrating a unique storage and folding area for use by the upper level laundry.
Lower Level Charm
The walk-out lower level features a fifth bedroom with a full bath, a large recreation room, and a game room with a beverage center featuring a wine fridge, separate cooler, beautiful cabinetry, and plenty of storage. The two-car garage is accessible via a custom designed mudroom.
The lovely level lot features an abundance of trees adding to the private country-club feel of the home. With room for a pool and already pre-wired for a generator, this residence is loaded with character and picture perfect!
