The separate master suite consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a dressing room. Additional spaces include the library/office offering beautifully detailed built-ins & fireplaces, wine room, full gym, modern eat-in kitchen with 3 dishwashers, open family room, private separate dining room & over-sized living room with stunning built-in dry bar. Floor to ceiling enormous bay windows & high ceilings throughout the house bring a modern, open and bright feeling to this vintage home. Thick European plastered-walls throughout the 3 floors of living space provide a variety of very quiet, private and separate home-office and homework areas on all 3 floors. The current owners re-wired, re-plastered and restored this home, while being careful to match and retain irreplaceable interior details, from swag carved doors and fir floors to 40’s Deco bath fittings and Bakelite-handled kitchen cabinets.
