The extremely well thought out floor plan of the 6,307 square-foot home offers rooms for large family gatherings as well as intimate spaces.

Historic details abound from the beautiful wide plank walnut floors to the custom chestnut pocket doors with glass panels.  Custom millwork and fine, hand-selected materials maintain the vintage feel throughout.

Original ceiling beams grace the living room, which also contains an elegant wood paneled, two-sided fireplace that opens through to the family dining room and gourmet kitchen. This spectacular open kitchen features beautifully handcrafted cabinetry, top-notch appliances, a large island, marble counters, a butler’s pantry and breakfast nook.

The six-bedroom home’s master suite provides residents with a fireplace, French doors and a marble bath with a steam shower and radiant floor heating. His and her walk-in closets, a dressing room and sitting room with French doors that open to a private terrace. The residence additionally boasts a guest bedroom suite, two offices, a first floor family room with fireplace, a study, mudroom, and fully finished third floor with an open playroom, as well as two more bedrooms and an extra bathroom.

The home is beautifully framed by secluded outdoor spaces including balconies, porches as well as a private garden with stone patio, a charming potting room and an attached garage.
