Every room is a masterpiece of architectural surfaces – the barrelled ceiling in the entrance hall, the garden room’s exposed truss-work, the club room’s impressive cherry wood coffered ceiling, oversized fireplace and well-equipped cherry wood bar. Custom-cabinetry with antiqued glass doors lend elegance to the dining room, while the wine room’s stone, and oak detailing has an old-world feel. Illuminated by skylights, the beautiful kitchen makes a bold statement with its stunning 13-foot vaulted ceiling trussed with cherry wood. A hand-hammered copper beverage sink is a perfect complement to the honed limestone countertop of the horseshoe-shaped center island. Appliances are all sourced from top-of-the-line manufacturers. The adjoining 14-foot domed breakfast room casts views over the property, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. For outdoor eating, the covered dining pavilion can be accessed through French doors as well as the dining patio with fireplace. Decorative columns give entry to the adjacent great room, whose dramatic cathedral ceiling is accented by raised-panel millwork, stencilling, clover accent window, and fireplace.
Comprising its own wing is the spa-like master suite with private courtyard. Complementing the bedroom are two vast dressing rooms, a private gym with juice bar, and an oak-panelled library with fireplace. Lustrous marble is the predominant material in the radiant-heated bathroom with double vanities, steam shower and soaking tub. Running the length of the north face of the house are the magnificent formal English gardens. A series of patios, terraces, courtyards with stone fireplace and grilling island, open out from the stone-floored garden room and the shiplap panelled artist’s studio. In the gardens, gravel walkways and box hedges weave through brilliantly coloured plantings. Every Christmas, one of the majestic Norway spruces on the property, bedecked with thousands of lights, can be seen from miles around. The west wing of the house, accessed through the pool house and main residence, is where you will find a guest suite, billiards room, and separate game room with spiral stairs to The Lookout. There is an additional self-contained apartment within the home for guests or staff. The lower-level screening room, whose faux-painted, embossed leather coffered ceiling and 13 reclining stadium seats make the viewing experience a pleasure.
