When this stunning home was custom-built in 2009, every detail was meticulously considered.
No expense was spared in the selection of superior building materials, exceptional finishes, and state-of-the-art systems, from the handsome millwork, hand-carved banisters, and lovely “knuckle nickel” door hinges to the sophisticated security system and whole-house generator.
The classic façade of the timeless stone-and-shingle home immediately suggests the classicism and grandeur of late-19th- and early-20th-century East Coast country homes, yet with a design by noted architect Sam Mitchell and impressive attention to detail on the part of the original owner, it offers every desirable feature and amenity necessary for luxurious modern living.
The spacious country retreat was designed for easy, comfortable day-to-day living but also the celebration of holidays and other special events. It offers gracious areas ideal for restful, tranquil moments of solitude—the cozy second-floor reading nook, the screened porch off the family room, and the master suite’s private porch—but also plenty of room for large gatherings.
Public spaces on the main floor are grand in scale and style, including a living room with a stately fireplace and ceilings soaring to 10 feet and a formal dining room with a custom-crafted ceiling medallion and an ornate fireplace mantel.
The gourmet kitchen includes a generous pantry and adjoins an informal dining area and family room. Areas for leisure activities are collected on the fully finished lower level: a home theater, a spa treatment room, a card room with cigar ventilation, a wine cellar and tasting room, a gym, staff quarters, and a lounge.
Located on the first level, the master suite features its own sitting area, a fireplace, plentiful windows, two full baths, an office, generous closet and storage space, and French doors to a covered patio with a fireplace.
Five bedroom suites are secluded on the second level, and the uppermost floor features two additional bedrooms and baths flanking an enchanting playroom.
An elevator offers easy access between floors.
The home was specially positioned on the gated four-acre site in order to preserve the lighted sunken tennis court and to ensure that its side yard could be used for large alfresco gatherings and fetes.
Throughout the main level, French doors open to the terrace, which gives way to the heated pool and the tennis court.
The delightful screened porch includes a stone fireplace, making outdoor leisure and entertaining easy almost year-round.
Mature trees and lovely professional landscaping add to the undeniable appeal.
