Property Description

Located across the street from Carnegie Lake in the coveted Riverside neighborhood, this 2007 re-build with custom renovations makes this a picture perfect colonial-split. Taken down to the studs 13 years ago and rebuilt/redesigned intentionally with high ceilings, wide staircases and spacious rooms to create a feel-good vibe on every level. The front foyer entrance opens to an inviting living/dinning room area with a cathedral beamed ceiling and a center gas fireplace (with hand painted tiles commissioned by an Italian artist) as the focal point that beckons guests for tea/drinks after dinning. A second cathedral beamed ceiling in the spacious kitchen touts a large center island with a vegetable sink and breakfast bar, custom cabinetry was enhanced with spot lighting, open shelving, glass fronts, drawers and doors with solid bronze hardware by Rocky Mountain Hardware and granite counters complemented by handmade backsplash tiles. A professional edge is brought to the kitchen with a stainless steel appliance package boasting a Wolf 48 duel- fuel, double convection electric ovens with 6 gas burners and a gas grill, Bosch dishwasher, Liebherr split-refrigerator-door and a Marvel wine cooler making food prep easy and entertaining a breeze. The breakfast area has a charming window seat (with storage below) that overlooks the backyard and patio. The kitchen opens to a grand, sunken family room with two sets of built-ins on either side of the steps and double French doors that open to the patio and private backyard where fun and good times can play out. Approximately 9 years ago the home was expanded to include a fifth bedroom suite, along with a circular office area with walls of windows and a glass, turret above and access to the backyard through a French door. The full bathroom for this wing features Kallista sink and fixtures along with gorgeous Walker Zanger tiles and the back bedroom is private with skylights above. Two sets of wide, open staircases lead to upper levels which include the master suite with vaulted ceilings, yours/mine walk-in closets, two more closets, a master bath with a large shower, dual Kallista pedestal sinks and a free standing Bain Ultra Air jet-tub with Chroma therapy and a heated back rest. This level also has a cozy nook area with built-in cabinets and bookcases that make for a perfect wine room as it captures views of the vaulted living room and fireplace below. This space would also make for a great computer/den area as the next level has two more bedrooms that share a hall bathroom and built-ins along the staircase for storage of books and games and a laundry room at the end of the hall. Another bedroom and a third full bathroom are located on the lower level just off the mud-room where everyday entry and a carefully organized, grand-central station of a mudroom was designed with the installation of a coat closet, coat hooks, a cushioned bench with storage and built-in cubicles ready to handle shoes, book bags, briefcases, sports equipment and more. An unfinished basement could add another level of living, however current use is storage. Three zone heating and air conditioning, hardwired whole house generator, with hardwood floors consisting of wide plank traditional character Hickory by Homerwood, custom hand forged iron sconces in stair well and the hooks in the mudroom are from Italy, heated floors in the office, Custom Hunter Douglas Plantation shutters throughout most of the home and much more! This home was built to the owner's specifications in conjunction with Peter Morgan , architect and Jeff Moser, builder and is move-in ready. Riverside Elementary School, Town and University are all within walking distance, not to mention Carnegie Lake.
