Truly A Masterpiece
Built in the “Country Colonial” farmhouse style made popular by its noted architect, Gerard Colcord, this beautiful home has had much of its original 1940s allure lovingly preserved. Gracing the residence are Colcord’s signature exposed heavy beam lintel above the study’s substantial fireplace, wide plank peg-and-groove wood floors, ceiling beams, and more. Resting on nearly two-thirds of an acre, the charming abode is approached via gated driveway to a flagstone motor court flanked by towering pines. Once inside, one is enveloped in the relaxed sophistication achieved by Colcord, known as “Hollywood’s society architect.” Notable accoutrements include 5 fireplaces, outdoor access from many rooms via Dutch doors, and multi-pane bay windows. The backyard features a spacious veranda with a fireplace and overlooking a lawn, gazebo, and a pool and sparkling waterfall. A serene retreat, convenient to all nearby shopping, dining and services, this is a perfect oasis of country in the city.
