Spectacular at the time of original construction, this all new rendition of this Romanesque Revival home is more so. Current finishes include hand-crafted rift-sawn white Oak floors with brass inlay, and beautiful stone materials, direct from Europe. Several light fixtures from the period of the home were restored, along with new custom fixtures. Fully custom cabinets on all levels were utilized, and millwork and detailed walls were crafted onsite, and feature many types of hand-tooled wood details. The house also has nine working fireplaces, spanning all levels. There are several skylights including a large fourth floor skylight over the main staircase with detailed leaded glass, crafted by the Colorsmith Studio. The design offers four and a half floors above grade plus a lower level that rivals none. Two staircases, including the spectacular main stair, plus an elevator, that reach all levels. The main level is the hub of the house with a kitchen/family room. Here there is access to the courtyard, as well as a guest suite. The second level is the most expansive space, spanning the full length of the lot. All formal entertaining spaces are located on this level, as well as the casual billards room. The next level up offers the gracious master suite in addition to an office or nursery, and fabulous terrace space. The top level offers three additional bedroom suites. The lower level is complete with a large theatre, tasting room and wine cellar, spa, fitness center, catering kitchen, laundry and storage. The interior of the home was designed to complement the original exterior, and brings a classic traditional style evocative of the 1930’s and 40’s. The styles play off of the original house design making a wonderful home for today’s lifestyle.
