Step off of the private elevator landing into an elegant 33 foot gallery with a sweeping curved staircase leading to your grand entertaining space. The sun flooded corner living room enjoys soaring 10+ foot ceilings, oversized windows capturing southern and western views, and a custom hand carved marble mantle framing the wood burning fireplace. Herringbone floors enrich the entire home offering a subtle yet sophisticated design note.
An impressive cathedral double door archway leads to the formal dining room, a perfect venue to host a large dinner party or quiet dinner for two. Adjacent to the dining room is the oversized windowed eat-in kitchen. The chef's kitchen is well appointed with a suite of premium appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Viking range with hood that vents out, and a Miele washer and dryer that also vents out.
Off the gallery you will discover the library/den adorned with beautiful custom wood paneling, dentil moldings, and an en-suite windowed powder room with marble fixtures and finishes. This bathroom can easily be expanded into a full bathroom (see alternate plan) making this a bedroom with full en-suite bath.
Ascend the staircase to the upper landing separating the three oversized bedrooms. The primary suite offers double exposures facing south and west, a wall of custom built-in closets with hand crafted millwork, and a windowed en-suite bathroom with dual vanity, walk-in shower, deep soaking tub, and radiant heated floors. The second and third bedrooms are generously proportioned and enjoy a large jack and jill bath.
