“Opulence abounds throughout,” the listing for this property begins, and from the first glimpse of the restored stained glass windows, the sentiment is supported. And then some.
The large entry foyer bounds a gorgeous stone fireplace, making for a warm welcoming before leading to the chef’s kitchen with marble countertops and equipped with a La Cornue eight-burner stove, wet bar, butler’s pantry, and the great room with a gas fireplace.
With six bedrooms, five full baths and two partial baths, including the first-floor primary bedroom with an “en-suite waterworks full bathroom,” as the listing describes it, “this home is beyond pristine.”
On the lower level, oenophiles can enjoy the Tuscan wine tasting room and wine cellar, and there is also a “man cave cigar room with air filtration system and spacious finished area.”
Wallcoat paint, hardwood flooring and wood beam and cathedral ceilings are found throughout the house, bringing a classic feeling at every turn. For all the past found in the aesthetic, the present is very much present in the “smart home” elements, including a sound system plus four-zone central air and gas/steam heat.
Outside, a wonderful patio with a side yard offers the pleasure of privacy, completing what the listing states as simply “modern elegance personified.”
