Built in the 1930's, this classical brick in-town residence has been masterfully restored to perfection offering all of today's conveniences and expanded with a fabulous post-modern addition with architecturally well-integrated spaces. Approached through wrought iron gates and a circular driveway, this beautifully positioned house is surrounded by majestic specimen trees, perennial gardens, stone walls, expansive blue stone terraces and a secluded tennis court. A gracious entrance foyer with arched doorways and deep-set moldings introduces the well-proportioned rooms throughout the house. Enter into the elegant sunken living room with high ceilings and views of the gardens through multiple french doors with transoms. Nearby, a spacious dining room with numerous custom plaster details is sure to make your holiday dinners memorable. The original library and study adjoining a hearth-warmed sitting area with window seats and built-in bookcases was the site of numerous historic meetings during ww ii. The dramatic addition includes a pyramidal skylight over a spacious, sun-drenched breakfast/family room with an exposed brick wall tying the two-story stair tower to the main house. Adjacent, a well-appointed kitchen with a large center island and top-of-the-line appliances is awash in light with a huge skylight crowning the space. Upstairs, the sumptuous master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with cove lighting, a fireplace (one of four), lavish his-and-hers bathrooms and dressing areas. A skylight above a spiral staircase connects the attic guest bedroom suite to the second floor via a dramatic, enclosed glass-block wall. This important home is located on an acre of land on a private cul-de-sac backing up to ten acres of woodlands and is a tribute to the craftsmanship of yesteryear with all the modern amenities coveted by today's buyer.
