Nyc Architect Louis Owsley Designed "Valevew"
NYC architect Louis Owsley designed Valeview, his Georgian colonial summer home to reflect the glamour of the 1930's. Sweeping lawns and mature plantings meet you along the private drive. A stunning brick facade and 2nd story wrought-iron balcony invite you in, greeted by a grand foyer, coffered ceilings, wainscoting and multiple French doors leading to patios, lagoon pool, and lush gardens. The home, lovingly updated retains its original character. The kitchen features 2 porcelain farm sinks, leaded-glass cabinets, Bertazzoni gas range, and opens to a breakfast room. The glamour of the 1930's reveals itself in the stunning living and dining rooms with oversized banks of windows, banquettes, and craftsmen constructed alder wood library, now wired, as is the entire residence to meet the most demanding home technology needs. A guest bedroom is conveniently located on this level as is a cleverly designed set of family rooms, one with a stone fireplace, as well as a 2nd separate game room. A mudroom services front and back yards, the garage, and legal 3 room apartment.The 2nd floor was designed as a retreat. The Master Suite showcases a gleaming spa-like white master bath with oversized shower, Jacuzzi, cathedral ceiling, and balcony overlooking the grounds. A 2nd floor family room, 3 more bedrooms, and office complete the floor. The home sits on 5 park-like acres with specimen trees, perennials, lawns, patios, lagoon pool and 2 gas fire pits. Valeview is such a perfect setting you might forget it’s just 60 minutes from NYC
