Meticulously designed for family living & entertainment. This sun-filled home w/open floor plan is functional yet incredibly beautiful while blending traditional elegance w/casual country living. Carefully & thoughtfully designed, there are wonderful surprises at each turn. When entering the driveway, the newer section of the house is set back. From here you enter the most breathtaking space in the home: a magnificent expansive double height gallery/atrium. This area serves as a side entrance which leads you to a flower potting room, a large mud room, then up to an expansive art gallery, a professional gym w/vaulted ceiling, home office & more! In the center of the split staircase is where you enter the centerpiece of the home: the kitchen. With is crescent shaped island, desk area, fireplace, breakfast area & more, this is the heart of the home. Open, inviting and practical. When entering the main entrance you are taken from a grand foyer into a spacious dining room and living room area. The millwork throughout is exquisite.

Adjacent to this room is the library, with wall-to-wall built in cherry cabinets. On the upper level is a family room area w/fireplace where all 5 bedrooms open to this space. The master suite--the 6th bedroom-- is a true haven: a stunning retreat for relaxation with soaring windows and its own balcony looking out over the pool and the vast gardens. The pool area, flanked with soaring arborvitae, feels as if you are vacationing in the South of France. The end results of this totally renovated home is a relaxed yet modern sanctuary.
