Majestic and enchanting, this magnificent Tudor with elegant brick detailing, a classic turret housing a winding staircase and stately slate roof conjures images of a regal home in the English countryside. Set on lush, private park-like grounds graced by stunning specimen plantings and mature landscaping, with a circular drive that escorts you to the gracious main entrance. A huge paver stone patio extending the rear expanse provides an outdoor paradise nestled in nature. Built in 1928 by renowned Wallace and Warner Architects and remodeled to modern perfection, this classic yet contemporary estate is an exceptional residence awaiting your family's living comfort and indoor/outdoor entertaining pleasure. A spacious reception foyer with tasteful checkerboard marble flooring, a powder room, architecturally-distinctive staircase and open doorways into generously-sized rooms welcomes your entry. French doors at the far end of the hall lead into a library with hardwood flooring and built-in bookcases covering both walls. A grand step-down living room with a granite fireplace, decorative moldings, hardwood floors and triple exposures accommodates large-scale gatherings with ease. French doors open to a sunroom with marble flooring and wet bar flanked by built-in cabinetry. Additional French doors access the adjacent greenhouse as well as the rear flagstone terrace. Chair rail and crown moldings, hardwood floors and windows on 2 exposures glamorize the dining room. The chef will adore creating meals in the gourmet kitchen designed with hardwood floors, granite counters, a center island with seating, Dura Supreme soft close cabinetry, a workstation desk and top-of-the-line appliances (2 Subzero refrigerator/freezers, a Wolf wall oven, Viking 6-burner cooktop, 2 Fisher & Paykel dishwashers). All will love spending time in the sun-filled breakfast area and step-down family room with built-in bookcases and 3 sets of French doors that open to the flagstone terrace. The graceful main staircase with a metal bannister and concrete steps makes a stylish statement as it rises along a curved wall to the domed-ceiling second floor. Down a wide hardwood hallway sits the master retreat with a fireplace and 2 renovated bathrooms with walk-in closets, 5 additional BRs & 2 full hall baths. The third floor houses 2 large rooms and a full bath. The part-finished basement with carpeting offers laundry and powder rooms. Truly a Tudor unlike any other!
