4662SF(above grade) plus 1500SF in the deep-pour FINISHED BASEMENT provides a deceptively large amount of living space in an intimate, yet OPEN FLOORPLAN. Bespoke in detail; RECLAIMED OAK FLOORS (salvaged from an old textile factory) span the entire first floor. The living room, dining room, and private first-floor office feature box-beam ceiling detail, frame, and raised-panel wainscoting, and masterful trim work all from reclaimed oak with character-rich detail.
The CHEF'S KITCHEN is the heart of this home featuring PROFESSIONAL GRADE 48" WOLF RANGE with pot-filler and SUBZERO APPLIANCES, WHITE full-inset CUSTOM CABINETRY, hammered copper apron-front sink, massive CENTER ISLAND and butler pantry with beverage center. The kitchen is open to the FAMILY ROOM that features a (first of four) STONE FIREPLACE with views through flanking French doors to the BRICK PAVER PATIO and three-story outdoor stone-masonry fireplace.
The second level features four bedrooms all with DIRECT-BATH ACCESS and walk-in closets. The MASTER SUITE is its own retreat with a stone FIREPLACE and spa-like bath with RADIANT-heat floors, a separate jetted tub, and a STEAM SHOWER. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a Jack and Jill bath while the fourth bedroom has a private ensuite. The finished third level has a huge recreational space with a custom beverage bar, full bathroom, and a large 5th bedroom or 2nd office with private treetop views.
The FINISHED BASEMENT is the ULTIMATE ENTERTAINMENT level featuring the 4th stone fireplace, a fully outfitted custom bar with seating for 10, and an enormous media/game area. Finally a 6th bedroom or HOME GYM and a full SPA-LIKE BATH with a separate SAUNA AND STEAM SHOWER. This home is LOADED WITH CUSTOM LUXURY FEATURES and a long list of recent updates.
