“Azalea Hill,” a grand Georgian Revival estate dating from the early 20th century, a classic of its type, on nearly four beautiful acres of gardens and lush landscaping, has been totally and exquisitely reconfigured for the 21st century. There always were high ceilings and lots of windows, but now the interior has been magically redesigned and opened-up – walls removed, some rooms enlarged, and some rooms eliminated. Custom bathrooms are large and fitted with Waterworks or imported English fixtures; fireplaces sport new, imported, contemporary mantels. A century of past owners’ and decorators’ preferences are now replaced by a bright, clean, interior, suitable for your personal decorating choices. A wide front-to-back, true reception hall has beautiful herringbone parquet floors, a fireplace, and French doors to a terrace. The large living room with three exposures opens to the “garden room” with fireplace, hand painted English wall canvas, and a covered dining porch which overlooks the celebrated azalea gardens. Several rooms open to an infinity edge pool, set in a sand-colored granite terrace A contemporary kitchen featuring stainless countertops and cabinets with Wolf, Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances, is flanked by a playroom, and a family room with fireplace and breakfast area. An impressive master suite includes the bedroom with fireplace, two luxurious baths, two dressing rooms and a paneled study. Some family bedrooms are two-room suites, many have private balconies. A new wing – a major expansion – houses a heated 4-car garage and, above, a unique meditation, yoga and tatami facility, with Japanese bath – an organic, ultimate minimalist space – custom built by craftsmen in Kyoto, Japan, dismantled there and reassembled here by the same craftsmen with imported tiles, granite, and Japanese cedar and bamboo. “Azalea Hill” is a wondrous creation, unique and special.
