Property Description

A Bevy of Grandly Scaled Spaces to Use as You Wish in this Western Section Grand Dame With Walled Garden. Stroll to dinner, the theater, the library, even the train, from a Western Section stunner with plenty of wow-factor and a backyard that’s sized just right for weeknight grilling or a garden party with a full guest list. A motor court is an appropriately formal introduction to the grand historic residence, built nearly a century ago, while around back, a lawn and stone patio with built-in kitchen ensconced by garden walls and flowering trees is as magical as it is functional. The garage comes equipped with a charging station, just one of many forward-thinking upgrades. Inside, that combination of pomp and practicality continues with a magnificently trimmed foyer and the large formal rooms at the front and an array of up-to-date, user-friendly spaces facing the yard. The kitchen has all of today’s most wanted appliances: a glass-door Sub Zero, an induction cooktop and a serve-yourself beverage station in the breakfast room. The sizable family room opens to the sunroom, an uplifting year-round retreat. An elevator in the mudroom now serves all 4 levels, including the perfectly laid out 2nd floor with 2 bedrooms sharing a bath and study/play space and the comprehensive main suite with separate his and hers dressing rooms. The top floor accommodates any need! An airy office with fireplace, a loft lounge and guest quarters are already in place. While some may wish to put their own spin on existing baths, this home is impeccably maintained with wise expenditures, like a whole-house generator, already taken care of.
