The most discreet and elegant residence in all of historic Old Town. Situated on +/- 2.5 lots, this architecturally significant home offers a lifestyle unlikely to ever be replicated. The grounds consist of a light-filled single family home, reimagined historic 'fire cottage', lush gardens, and an oversized 2 1/2 car garage connected by heated walkways. The primary residence, carefully designed by the current owners and renowned Rugo Raff architects, boasts natural light in every room. The main level offers a welcoming foyer with curved plaster walls, walnut paneled library with one of 5 wood burning fireplaces, hand crafted staircase, a mezzanine, separate living room and dining room flanked with built-ins and floor to ceiling windows, piano room, and a true commercial grade kitchen. The entire west wing of the main level was raised to accommodate the basement expansion and the Food & Wine Magazine featured kitchen, one of only a handful of residential kitchens built by SML, the company that creates Michelin-starred kitchens. The second floor features a full floor primary retreat with large, custom walk-in closets, oversized bathroom w/ large open shower, teak ceiling, and skylights, heated flooring and sep water closet, and a private sitting room w/ adjacent home office. A third floor attic is a private study and quiet home office that completes the East wing of the home. Over the glass bridge is the family wing with two large bedroom suites, each with a reading loft perfect for homework or sleep overs. The lower level encompasses a generous family game and media room, modern wine cellar, and flex Rec room/music room/additional bedroom, large laundry center & full bathroom w/ walk-in shower. Tucked away through the gardens is a separate coach house with lofted bedroom space, bathroom, and kitchen ideal for guests, a gym, and art or yoga studio with a nano-wall that opens completely to the garden. The outdoor space is a fully-private walled garden with generous gathering areas, espalier pear trees, concord grape vines, arctic kiwi, and a large roof deck above an oversized 2 1/2 car garage. No expense was spared and small details abound in the creation of this meticulously cared for private compound.
