This magnificent cut stone English manor was designed in 1916 by Carrere and Hastings, and has been beautifully maintained and cared for over the years. Elegant detail and woodwork all the hallmarks throughout the gracious interior. A handsome two-level entrance hall features a beautiful winding staircase with a handsome bar and cloak room tucked away beneath. The living and dining rooms are large and beautifully scaled with triple exposures and fireplaces. Both rooms open out to covered porches that extend the entertaining spaces, and allow for spectacular views across the grounds. A paneled library also with three exposures is a comfortable room for large gatherings, or cozier evenings by the fire. Enjoy more casual living in the large, eat-in kitchen and family room beyond or retire to the lower level to the billiard room and lounge. Upstairs there are five large bedroom suites, each with distinctive character, plus a master suite with sitting area and private office, as well as a sleeping porch. Connected to this floor, and accessible by separate staircase, there are quarters for help. The third floor features a third floor sleep-over room with bath, as well as craft studio. Set on approx. 5.2 parklike acres with beautiful pool and sunken tennis court this is truly a special property, close to town, but completely private and worlds away. Three legal lots in RA-1 zone.
