Description

Privacy and easy-care, park-like grounds with a pond surround this dramatic, luxurious converted bank barn, fully updated in 2008 to provide one-floor living for those who desire it. Step into the great room and be prepared for awe-inspiring views of the grounds at the treetop level. It's magnificent. This main living space is two stories high with original beams, a stone woodburning fireplace, wood floors, built-ins and enough space for several seating areas, though truly, everyone will want a seat with a view. French doors open to a formal dining room where once again, a wall of windows frames those enchanting views. Behind the dining room is a big custom Living Quarters country kitchen with cabinetry topped in granite, a wall of pantry storage, a wet bar with copper undermount sink and faucet and icemaker. Stained and leaded glass windows behind the sink provide pretty light. A first-floor laundry room provides roomy, convenient utility space. Just beyond is a heated three-car garage. A custom door opens to a sun-filled kitchen garden and terrace. Above this area is a large finished room with broad arched windows, perfect as an office, game room, exercise area, etc. A loft area over the great room is ideal for an artist's studio or office. The first-floor main bedroom "wing" has its own large sitting room with a corner gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling finished in wood and arched picture windows, plus access to a large deck. The sleeping quarters are airy and expansive with a tray ceiling trimmed with cove lighting and substantial moldings. A door opens to a private balcony. Two walk-in closets ensure ample storage. Like so much of this home's living space, the sumptuous main bath was designed to bring in the view with a soaking tub placed below a corner bank of windows and a medicine cabinet that descends via a lift into the cabinet base so as not to block the view. An over sized glass-enclosed shower and radiant-heated travertine floor complete this space. Almost all of the floors have radiant heat, by the way, and five zones keep it efficient. Additional private quarters are on the daylight, walkout lower level and include three good-sized bedrooms, three full baths, including a brand-new marble bath, a full kitchen and a living room/lounge with working fireplace ? a perfect "hangout" space for guests. Outside, a brick terrace overlooks the pond and springhouse ?scenic in every season and so pretty for al fresco entertaining. PUBLIC SEWER PUBLIC WATER
