Extensively renovated and renewed by its designer/owner, this exceptionally elegant residence offers a gracious, open floor plan enhanced by sumptuous appointments and finishes. No detail for grand entertaining or daily life has been overlooked. Sitting elegantly above street level across three lots (more than 53,000 square feet) and partially-enclosed by tall brick walls and screens of trees, the traditional, slurry-brick house has a sweeping, crescent-shaped front driveway and a gated rear driveway. Impressive bronze and glass doors open into the foyer. The reception gallery spans the rear of the house and offers lovely views of the patios, pool and grounds through sets of tall metal and glass French doors. Pale gray and white marble-clad kitchen countertops; the extra-deep sink in the large island is also marble. The sunny, rotunda breakfast room is appointed with an antique, black-and-white tile floor. A brick wine vault entered through antique wood and glass doors adjoins the kitchen and spectacular great room.
The master suite occupies a secluded position at the far end of the reception gallery and adjoins an impressive study. The second floor offers large secondary bedrooms and superbly-appointed baths. One of the glories of this house is its inviting cabana and summer kitchen, an open-sided structure with a fireplace, seating and dining areas, and a brick fireplace. A full bath adjoins the cabana and there is also access into the oversized, three-car garage with an epoxy floor and a dog wash station. Above the garage is a gym with a rubberized floor and mirrored walls, and a hunting/tackle room with custom-fitted tackle and gun storage. Grounds include a serene swimming pool with Wedgewood-style tile edging; a goldfish pond with water wall and fountain; reclaimed brick patios and pebble and brick paths; parterre gardens; and a charming wrought-iron, Victorian-style fowl house.
