A magnificent residence in a magnificent setting, this country English-style estate blends classic details with the bright spaciousness of contemporary living. Set on approximately 1.39 meticulously landscaped acres, the property is gated and very private, with handsome mature trees, a huge waterfall pond, gazebo, expansive lawns, and seating areas that invite relaxed conversation and lively parties beneath the stars. The interiors make generous use of skylights, very high beamed ceilings, wood and stone flooring, and striking sightlines, to create a welcoming flow ideal for entertaining. The dramatic double-height living room is accented with a red brick floor-to-ceiling chimneypiece. A wide doorway opens onto a great room comprised of a family room, dining area, and chef’s kitchen with stone counters, breakfast bar, and a row of windows looking out to the sylvan front yard and pond. French doors from the living room open onto a patio, and beyond that a bonus room with high ceilings perfect for office/exercise room/art studio. French doors from the dining area lead to a huge entertainer’s patio with built-in barbecue center, fountain, and additional patio space. On the upper level, a loft-style office overlooks the living room and has French doors to a large wood deck. There are three bedrooms on this level, including the owner’s suite complete with skylight, large closet, luxurious bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the grounds. Just inside the front gates is a studio guest house with a wood deck and spa, a large lawn, and steps to an additional deck with firepit. There is a circular motor court with ample guest parking and a three-car garage. A home of great serenity.
