A thoroughly detailed, exceptionally stylish renovation of this classic, English Cotswold-inspired home folds together the best of old and new. A well-known neighborhood landmark, the 1930s house and its extensive gardens were returned to life and injected with contemporary flair by Dillon Kyle Architects, UrbanCraft Builders, and Prewett Read & Associates Landscape Architects. The opened, expanded floor plan provides spacious, light-filled, seamlessly- integrated rooms framed by serene views of lawns, gardens, loggia, and the Diana-style swimming pool. Appointments include custom-designed, commercial-grade metal and glass doors and casement windows; walnut/ebony-stained oak floors; Donghia grass-cloth wall fabric; and rich sculpture-marble surfaces, white subway backsplash, and period-style black, gray and white hexagonal tile. In the airy living room, anchored at one end by a stone masonry fireplace, the adjoining sunroom has been incorporated as a sitting/conversation alcove surrounded by casement windows. The sunny dining room opens into the open gathering kitchen which features professional-grade, stainless steel appliances and hardware; soft-close drawers; and an appliance garage. The breakfast room has a built-in banquette beneath windows that overlook the front lawn. Beyond the kitchen, a recessed den overlooks the classically-styled fountain pool, a side patio, and provides access to the loggia and guest suite. Entered from the staircase landing via a light-filled morning room or home office, the secluded master suite offers oak floors, a custom-fitted walk-in closet; and a lavish, marble-clad bath with a floating sink cabinet, an air tub, and a glass-and-marble shower. Large secondary bedrooms have custom-fitted closets and recent or renovated en suite bathrooms. Outside, the wide loggia has slate hardscape and impressive brick columns, and travels to the protected two-car-plus porte-cochere with automatic, sliding entrance gates.
