Erected in 1911, this iconic, historic mansion is being offered for the first time since the complete restoration/renovation of the entire home and grounds. The approach was to maintain the integrity of the period of the home along with it’s detail, while providing all of the current amenities of today. The meticulous process and work is immediately visualized walking through the glass and iron front door and into the barrel-vaulted entry hall containing some of the most intricate plaster work one has ever seen. The extravagant depth is noticed from the baseboards to the crown molding to the built-in china storage cabinets, not to mention the zinc prep area in the butler’s pantry which also houses the original warming drawer powered by a hot water radiator.
The proportions and scale of the rooms couldn’t be more perfect…from the salon to the drawing room which has three points of entry onto the side veranda overlooking the grounds. The master suite, which is now positioned on the back-side of the home, was created by combining two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite contains a health room, a right-size master closet, which is replicate of the Yves Saint Laurent Boutique in NYC, and a master bath complete with a steam shower. The three other bedrooms on the second floor all have en suite baths and two closets in each bedroom…a rare feature in homes built during this era.
The third floor, originally staff quarters, is now converted into guest quarters with its own separate living space, 2 bedrooms, bath and an office.
All sidewalks on the property, the entire driveway and the patio surrounding the pool contains the snow-melt system.
