Luxury. Lifestyle. Location. This 2007 custom Colonial is an architectural tour de force that defines the very essence of comfortable elegance, well-located on one of Summit's premiere neighborhood streets.
Superbly appointed with high ceilings, elaborate crown moldings and exquisitely restored wood floors, fine architectural features and attention to detail reign supreme throughout the home. Transom French doors off the dramatic reception foyer with cathedral ceiling and graceful staircase introduce the formal dining room and a living room with limestone fireplace, each room illuminated with generous windows. A handsome first-floor library with custom built-ins offers a quiet respite, complete and restored stained glass cabinet fronts from France.
A stunning fireside family room is set beneath 10 ft. high, coffered ceilings, surrounded on three sides with an abundance of large windows that bring the outside in. A double set of French doors open to a custom-cut bluestone patio with stone knee walls and lovely level yard framed with privacy plantings and garden beds. A surround sound TV/stereo system is the perfect touch for leisure gatherings.
Two archways from the barrel vaulted hallway lead into an impressive designer gourmet kitchen. A blend of soft white and dark cabinetry is enhanced with soapstone and limestone countertops and professional-grade appliances that include twin Liebherr refrigerators, a six-burner Viking cooktop and ovens, two dishwashers and two sinks. A huge walk-in butler's pantry room and a service area with limestone counters, under mount wine fridge and wine rack provide ease of service. A center island with extended seating is at the center, with a breakfast area and French doors to the patio for extended outdoor dining. A newly designed custom work station adds functionality, while a nearby mud room with custom cubbies and laundry with access to the three-car attached garage adds convenience. A pretty powder room with custom painted sink from Portugal is located nearby. A two-story second-floor landing overlooks the foyer below, enhanced with a window seat set beneath a bowed window and sky windows that illuminate the floors below. Five beautifully appointed bedrooms enjoy double custom-fitted closets and elegantly finished adjoining baths with marble accents. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The master suite boasts a high tray ceiling, oversized windows with treetop views on two sides, his- and her- custom fitted walk-in closets, and a marble-clad master bath with double vanity, claw foot soaking tub, separate frameless shower and bench, plus a separate commode.
A wide staircase leads to fully floored attic storage. David Rosen designed architectural plans for an additional bedroom, bath room and sitting room convey with the home.
9 ft. high ceilings prevail in the finished lower level recreation room and game area, anchored on new neutral wall-to-wall carpeting, while a mirrored wall adds dimension to the nearby home gym. A second half bath, large storage rooms and ample closets complete this level.
Attractive extras include three-zone HVAC with humidifier, Bose stereo system throughout first floor, security system, underground sprinkler system, central vacuum system, invisible dog fencing, and so much more.
Sophisticated yet comfortable, elegant yet understated…this outstanding home is a must-see.
