The park-like grounds are magical, featuring gardens, a 40’ x 20’ heated swimming pool, rolling manicured hills with meandering pathways by ancient stone walls, birch tree forests, and remains of an old quarry.

The foyer and exquisite stairway opens to the spacious Living Room with a coffered ceiling, FP, and custom cabinetry with a window seat and Glass doors open to the enormous terrace. The Primary Bedroom Suite also has a door to the terrace, a seating area, dual dressing rooms, and a luxurious spa bathroom with radiant heated marble tile floors. The Cherry paneled Library w/FP and the family Dining/open plan Kitchen have many windows and access to the terrace. The kitchen is a dream with walls of cabinets and windows, a breakfast bar, an island with prep sink, and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Beyond the kitchen, a 50’ long family room continues the open floor plan while also serving as a transitional gallery joining the residence to the Grand Hall. The Grand Hall, 60’x36’ has a soaring 40’ stone fireplace and a generous terrace with an outdoor fireplace and steps to the lawn, a dramatic rock ledge, and the pool. A floating stairway and cantilevered balcony access the perfect second-level guest quarters with an adjoining mahogany deck. Across this deck is the second-floor Primary suite and two additional bedrooms, an en suite with all three bathrooms having radiant heated stone floors. An entertainment lounge, a large storage room, and an additional W/D complete the second level. With closets galore, a generous laundry room off the kitchen, a full-size basement with interior stairs, and walkout access, this quality home has a two-car attached garage and double driveways offering parking for many vehicles.
