Classic Georgian Designed for Comfortable Elegance

Drive the avenue of resplendent homes to arrive at this classic Georgian inspiration set with accomplished perfection on the curve of the cul-de-sac. Built for the current owners, including an interior designer, aesthetic dreams were allowed to come true. The home was to be elegant yet ultimately comfortable. 

The terrain rises to the 16-room residence including a finished lower level. The all-brick exterior, columned portico with balcony, symmetrical design and classic decorative elements affirm the home’s architectural heritage. The mahogany entry door opens to the foyer with 20-foot ceiling rising over French limestone flooring. The eye is drawn to refined, crown moldings, charming arched entries, wainscoting, gleaming oak floors, multiples of French doors often with transoms. 

The dining and living rooms present decorative, detailed ceilings and bay windows. French doors open from the latter to the mahogany library with coffered ceiling, built-ins and the first of the home’s four fireplaces. A bright sunroom follows showing stout terracotta flooring, three window walls. Its French doors open to bluestone patios, an English garden, wandering stone walls, timeless trees. The family room with fireplace and entertainment center, including wet bar, transitions to the Kitchen updated only in 2016. White custom cabinetry shares the spotlight with lustrous double-thick quartzite countertops. There are first-rate appliances, a large island, a handy planning station.  Informal dining takes place in a bay of windows and the Butler’s Pantry stands by to lend a helping hand.

Upstairs the master suite bedroom is crowned with a tray ceiling and harbors walk-in California closets. The adjoining sitting room with fireplace has French doors opening to a spacious deck. In the bath, honed travertine shapes countertops, lines the steam shower, encloses the jetted tub and extends underfoot. The additional four bedrooms, all with California closets, include an en suite.  

The finished lower level wonderfully adds to the home’s living and entertainment space. Off the foyer is the wine cellar added in 2017. Temperature controlled, its mahogany racks allow for near 2000 bottles. The game room gives way to the second family room including entertainment center, fireplace and wet bar. Other spaces include an exercise room with mirror paneled walls and gym-mat flooring. Also, an office, full bath, copious storage and an array of comfort-providing utilities and mechanicals.
