In addition to the library, the residence boasts a limestone-floored, two-story foyer, which greets visitors with an original fieldstone wall and a double-sided stone fireplace with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the home’s carriage house heritage. Additional standout spaces include a living room with original fieldstone fireplace, French limestone floors and Venetian plaster walls; dining room with custom wax-finished walls and silver leaf ceiling; and oak-floored kitchen updated in 2013 with new appliances.

This chic style is carried through to each and every room of the house, especially the library, which I like to describe as the ultimate in-home oasis—‘a view with a room’ that you will never want to leave.”
