This beautiful brick and stone French Normandy is something truly special. Approaching the estate, you are greeted by the entry stone pillars flanking the large circle driveway. As you make your way down the custom landscaped bluestone walkway and enter the home, you'll be immediately impressed by the dramatic two story entry, surrounded by a fully custom staircase. Just off of the foyer is the living room with deep millwork coffered ceilings, large stone clad fireplace, and two doors for easy access to the exterior patio. Connected to the living room is a sun soaked office, with double height windows and access doors to one of two exterior lounge areas. Just off the foyer is the dining room with a beautiful silver leaf curved inlay ceiling and access door to the exterior dining space. The dining room is connected via a swing butler's door to the large chef's kitchen with top of the line appliances, stone countertops and an eat-at island and large breakfast dining space. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the open concept family room which has a soaring two story ceiling, a stone clad fireplace, and access door to both outdoor spaces. The first floor also features an elegant private office with gold inlay deep coffered ceiling with custom built-ins, a butler's pantry, powder room, mudroom and a fully updated first floor guest suite with a full en-suite bathroom. Just off of the butler's pantry is an access door to the 3 car garage and a separate staircase which leads you to a newly renovated large bonus room with double height ceilings and a private bathroom. On the second floor you will find the large primary suite with a beautiful stone fireplace, walk-in closet, and a nicely appointed light filled en-suite bathroom with heated floors and freestanding soaking tub. Also on the second floor are 3 more bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and one with Jack and Jill, all with generously sized walk-in closets. Another staircase leads to the 3rd floor which has a newly renovated private suite with double height ceilings, large walk-in closet, 2 very large finished storage rooms, and a vertical staircase that leads you to a unique catwalk studio space. The expansive basement, with dual staircases for easy access, features a 6 chair movie theatre, exercise room, large laundry room with double washer and dryers, kitchenette, family room, bonus room, full bathroom with steam shower, and plenty of storage. On the exterior of the home you will find pristine landscaping serviced by a timed irrigation system, a large bluestone patio with separate dining and entertainment spaces on the south side of the home, and on the north side another fenced in patio with a herringbone brick inlay picture framed with pavers, a built in gas grill and a custom storage shed. This home sits on over 1.4 acres of land, which feels like much more with the connecting land in between. Don't miss out on this truly one of a kind estate.
