Striking Architectural Estate
Striking architectural estate privately situated on nearly 8 pastoral acres edged by stone walls and a whispering brook on one of Washington’s most coveted roads.
Set back on a graveled circular driveway, the 2-story clapboard colonial with covered porch invites you to stay the moment you arrive. Experience an exceptional floor plan that flows seamlessly from a grand entry foyer/art gallery into the comfy fireplace-fitted sitting room with built-in bookcases that leads to a spacious party-ready living room -- perfect for large groups -- with dramatic high-beamed ceilings, second wood-burning fireplace and multiple French doors opening to the flagstone patio with marble stairs leading beyond to the upper patio with heated Gunite pool.
The spacious Chef’s dream kitchen sports 2-inch white marble countertops, stainless bib sink, designer appliances with Sub Zero and Miele, and a 6-burner chef’s gas stove with duel ovens. There’s also a breakfast area with bay window offering views of the grounds, a center island that comfortably seats four, and an adjacent summer lounge/sunroom/sanctuary with screened bluestone porch, fireplace and TV -- perfect for winding down any time of year. Contiguous to both the kitchen and sunroom is a large formal dining room that can accommodate twelve or more guests, and features a fourth fireplace.
A wide center staircase ushers you to the delicious master suite with fifth fireplace, two dressing rooms, separate office/sitting or nursery room, and laundry. The master bath with treetop views has a walk-in shower, standalone tub, and double vanity. Three guest bedrooms are all zoned separately and include one ensuite, and two sharing a third full bath recently updated with tub shower.
The gorgeous 7+-acre property invites you to relax and appreciate the sights and sounds of the immersive landscape. Among mature oaks and evergreens, flowering perennials and specimen gardens is a flagstone loggia and grilling platform for entertaining and al fresco dining, a gorgeous rolling lawn for playing ball and sunning, a flagstone-wrapped heated Gunite pool, small barn, seasonal brook, and waterfall.
Other highlights: 1,400-sqft full-height basement, 2-car detached garage with loft. Throughout the home: oak, pine and antique wide-board flooring, Lutron lighting system, smart WiFi-zoned heating, storm windows and doors. Recent updates: a brand new cedar shake shingled roof with copper gutters, freshly painted exterior clapboard, pea-stone gravel drive.
A move-in-ready home that exemplifies the personality and taste of those accustomed to the best in quality, design, finishes and lifestyle. A rare opportunity in this market.
