Description

This impressive stone residence is ideally located on a quiet tree-lined street in the sough-after neighborhood of Wesley Heights. The house is situated on an impeccably maintained .34-acre lot with mature trees, professionally landscaped gardens, and thoughtfully positioned hardscape. The house is set back from the street and offers a commanding front fae7;ade with a charming portico accessed via a flagstone front walkway. The interior of the residence offers over 9,000 square feet of finished living space with exceptionally-scaled formal entertaining rooms, as well as intimate family living spaces. It is illuminated by an abundance of natural sunlight, which is further magnified by the large skylights and oversized windows throughout. The gracious entry foyer has high ceilings and provides an uninterrupted axis to the rear of the home. There is a seamless transition from the foyer to both the living room and formal dining room. The generously proportioned living room with a fireplace adjoins the library, which has a multitude of bookshelves and custom planation shutters. The south-facing dining room has elegant crown moldings and a swinging door to the adjacent hallway with a powder room, walk-in pantry, and wine storage. The gourmet kitchen has a beamed ceiling, large center island with a breakfast bar, and high-end appliances. Additionally, the kitchen has a nearby wet bar and three convenient sets of French doors to the rear terrace and yard. The neighboring family room, which can be closed off via pocket doors, is expansive and features a built-in media center, fireplace, and another set of French doors to the terrace. The grand curved staircase to the second level showcases a dramatic overhead skylight, which provides substantial sunlight to the floor below. Beautiful paneled walls along the generous landing are one of the thoughtful details of the second level. The well-appointed primary bedroom has a tray ceiling and an expansive walk-in dressing room. The marble en-suite primary bathroom epitomizes luxury with two separate vanities, a frameless glass shower, and lovely soaking tub. There are two additional bedroom suites on this floor, both with spacious closets and private bathrooms. The other two upper level bedrooms share a center bathroom with access from both rooms. There is also the added convenience of an impressive laundry room with two full-sized washers and dryers, a folding station, utility sink, and storage found on this level. The sprawling lower level of the residence offers a large recreation room with a dry bar and beverage refrigerator, an office with private entry, a gym, game room, and ample storage space. There is also an in-law/staff suite with a full kitchen, bathroom, and a separate entrance. The rear grounds are wonderfully private and great for entertaining with a desirable flat yard and a lovely terrace with a built-in gas grill. The residence also has a private driveway and two one-car garages. It is within close walking distance to neighborhood favorite restaurants, shops, and parks.
