Description

Old World craftsmanship comes alive in this stately brick and stone manor designed and meticulously constructed by Demari Development. From the very first moment you enter the home, you are greeted by rich detailing that simply can't be replicated today: intricate millwork, wood paneling, arched doorways, plaster and coffered ceilings, ancient stone fireplaces and a beautiful blend of hardwood and stone floors. The main level balances classical design and modern amenities with a variety of spaces for both grand entertaining and casual gatherings. The formal living room, dining room, library and family room all overlook the private backyard, with many of these rooms opening to the outdoors. The gourmet kitchen is touched with Wolf appliances, a large center island, dining space, catering/prep room and convenient butler's pantry leading to the dining room. A screened porch, massive laundry room, mudroom and large attached three-car garage complete the main floor. Entertaining can easily move into the finished English basement, where you'll find a second kitchen, full bathroom, exercise room, an ensuite bedroom, rec room, theater room and a potential wine cellar. Up the sweeping front staircase, you'll find the elegant master wing through the double door entry. A cathedral ceiling, stone windows and a stone fireplace add to the sense of romance emanating through the suite which includes a large, private bath featuring a soaking tub, separate steam shower, built-ins, dual vanities and a large dressing room plus a walk-in closet. The other wing consists of four beautifully detailed family bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The private finished third floor offers a sitting room, bedroom and bath. Beyond the interiors, the tranquility of the outdoors awaits in the backyard, where you'll discover a true oasis with a stone terrace, pool, waterfall, BBQ and manicured lawn - all kept serenely private by tall, mature trees. This finely crafted home and property is a one-of-a kind offering with extreme quality and privacy - don't miss the opportunity to experience it for yourself.
