Built in 2005 this handsome 7 bedroom 7+ bath stone mansion style home, designed by Tom Hall architect, impresses with high ceilings substantial millwork, streamlined open floor plan, and richly stained hardwood floors. Finished on four levels, the exterior of this home was patterned after the landmark properties of the mainline while the interior was designed for an active modern family in mind. Enjoying western light through a gentle arch, the two story Foyer opens to the Living Room on right featuring a fireplace and well crafted millwork and the Dining Room to the left also warmed by a fireplace and connected to a well outfitted Butlers Pantry with wine chiller and overhead display cabinetry . Sunlit, the straight-through Foyer leads to views of the covered terrace and pool with notable details including the family room’s coffered ceiling, wall of windows and French door access to the rear yard and gardens. The open flow between the large kitchen and family room is what makes this traditional looking house not so traditional. Crisp white walls with hide-away cabinetry and mill work flank the TV and gas burning fireplace wall. Adjacent, a stunning modern Kitchen sparkles with white cabinets, black honed stone counters and a suite of highest end appliances including Thermador professional series range with 6 burners, griddle and two full sized ovens, Viking warming drawer and Sub-Zero freezing and refrigeration.... Two islands, one seated and the other centrally positioned for prep and washing up, combine to create a space that is as much display as welcoming and functional. Steps away the Breakfast Room, designed in solarium style and positioned for morning sun, connects to the family room, kitchen and terraces. A large informal entrance acts as the hub to an oversized mudroom with generous coat and Costco storage, entrance to the five car garage and back courtyard. Off this family space, a home office with paneled wainscoting and open shelving manages all the paperwork that comes with daily life discreetly and neatly out of view. Two powder rooms complete this level. Ascend the sweeping front stair to the second level. An airy Primary suite has it all. The bedroom itself features a gas burning fireplace, tray ceiling with stepped lighting, French doors to a deep rear facing balcony, sitting room with TV wall and additional storage and gorgeously outfitted closet and bath. The under window jetted tub, separate stone topped vanities, private water closet and large, seated steam shower begin and ends the day indulgently. Four other family or guest bedrooms each with their own bath are located down a wide hall with gleaming hardwood floors. Additionally, a large second floor family or AV room features a kitchenette and another bedroom and en-suite bath. The back stair connects all four finished levels with the third floor offering large finished open space, ideal for Au pair or storage with a bedroom and full bath. With a walk-out to a small flagstone terrace and garden, the lower level is finished with the same degree of style and attention as the other areas of the home. A spacious open recreation room with seated bar and kitchenette is adjacent to a re-purposed bank vault which houses the temperature controlled wine collection. A large gymnasium, full bath, generous storage and mechanicals complete this level. Highly style and beautifully proportioned with a proper balance between formal and informal areas. The home offers the old estate feel with the in demand interior appointments and modern, open floor plan.
