Property descriptionAn idyllic hilltop architectural treasure
An idyllic hilltop architectural treasure designed by Robert Parker Coffin. This home has been significantly renovated, creating a design that is well suited for today's buyers while maintaining an acknowledgment of the classic architecture. At the heart of the home, the integrated family room/ kitchen is a showstopper and perfectly suited for entertaining. The white DeJulio kitchen, featuring a SieMatic center island, Sub-Zero and Dacor stainless steel appliances, warming drawers, and oversized walk-in pantry, flows beautifully into the family room. The wall of windows overlooking an expansive yard highlighted by mature oak trees and a serene pond (10 feet deep) with visiting mallards, egrets, cranes, and migratory species creates an extension of the outdoors. The substantial moldings, tray ceilings, stone fireplace with custom wood mantle, and quarter sewn oak flooring add to the details of the space. The adjacent screened porch is the perfect place for a morning coffee, evening cocktails, or a summer dinner party. Step outside of the family room onto the private tranquil paver patio and enjoy the tiered professionally landscaped garden. The oversized dining room accommodates large dinner parties. The living room was designed to replicate some of the details from The Palace of Versailles, including the handcrafted wood flooring and the 18th century fireplace imported from France. The home's main floor also features a large mud room with four cubbies and laundry room leading to the oversized three-car garage. Walk the spiral staircase (or take the elevator) to the second floor and enjoy the beautiful master bedroom and bath with a soaking tub, steam shower, large walk-in closet, and double doors leading to the upper balcony of the Southern Colonial. Three additional bedrooms occupy the second floor, including a guest suite with separate climate control, creating the perfect oasis for your guests. The bright lower level walkout features a game area, family room, two fireplaces, extra bedroom or study/studio, full bathroom, second laundry room, and a separate nanny/in-law apartment with a kitchenette and private entrance on the side of the home. Large glass doors throughout the lower level lead to the lower level balcony and picturesque backyard. Keep the extra-large storage space (over 1100 square feet) as-is or consider building out with endless possibilities. The home includes two hidden safes whose locations will be shared at closing.
