Extraordinary vision, meticulous craftsmanship and a deep appreciation for the romance of English Tudor style elevated this Western Section residence to a level far surpassing today's standard for refined luxury living. A family room, kitchen and main suite addition by architect Max Hayden seamlessly merged light-filled, laidback spaces ideal for everyday use with elegant rooms meant for grand entertaining. They all spill out to an expansive stone terrace edged with boxwood and laurel, the centerpiece of the acre+ property dotted with magnolia, dogwood and apple trees, as well as plenty of mature evergreens for year-round privacy. Original woodwork was painstakingly restored, such as fantastically carved mantels accentuating oversized fireplaces, while newer elements, like bathroom vanities, were designed to echo the lines of arched doorways. Even the kitchen, a modern host's dream with double dishwashers and ovens, repeats the motif. While this house is monumental in size, alcoves and built-ins peppered throughout add warmth and functionality. There are welcoming spots to curl up with a book and unwind with loved ones, as well as quiet places to escape for work. Two multi-room main suites with magazine-worthy baths and dressing rooms also offer owners a choice of sizes and styles or allow in-laws to live as luxuriously as they please. There are 7 bedrooms in total served by 6 bathrooms, some with antique tiling in period colors.
