The over half acre of property includes well landscaped gardens and a rear terraced patio formed by natural stone walls and cascading woodlands ensures total privacy and a serene environment.

High ceilings, rich hardwood floors, elaborate crown moldings and oversized windows ensure grandeur in the elegant living room and formal dining room, with an expanse of floor-to-ceiling windows in the spacious fireside family room that flows through double doors from the living room. A sumptuous great room is part of a three-story addition made to the home, accented with intricate ceiling moldings and wall trims, an expanse of beautiful windows and a wood burning focal fireplace--beautifully designed, eminently comfortable and basically, a wow!

Crisp white cabinetry adorn the kitchen, updated in 2015, set against granite countertops, navy tile backsplash and professional-grade stainless steel appliances, complete with center island and under mount wine fridge, a wet bar and built-in desk. A charming breakfast area enjoys private rear property views surrounded by three sets of Palladian-topped floor-to ceiling bay windows and a nearby first-floor laundry room adds convenience.

The romantic brand-new master suite addition is the perfect private respite, set on its own beneath high ceilings, with a gas fireplace and French doors that open to a Juliet balcony, and includes his- and her- custom fitted walk-in closets. The luxurious master bath has high ceilings, marble-topped double vanity and jetted tub with marble surround, plus an oversized shower. High ceilings and lovely crown moldings are consistent throughout the second-floor bedrooms, as well as a stately second ensuite master bedroom suite featuring a walk-in closet and elegant bath with double vanity, deep jetted tub set beneath a distinctive stained-glass window, and a frameless shower. Two elegant bedrooms (one with a Juliet balcony; another with plantation-shuttered windows) share a Jack and Jill bath with tub shower, while a hall bath with tub shower serves the fifth guest bedroom.

Great leisure, relaxation and entertaining happens on the well-appointed lower level enhanced with raised panel wainscoting along the staircase and in the inviting game room/recreation room, complete with a custom bar counter with seating and built-in shelving to get the party started. A cozy sitting area off the bar is perfect for small gatherings, cards or conversation. A temperature-controlled 1,000 bottle wine cellar and tasting room is de rigueur for the wine aficionado and gracious host. And, you'll want to entertain your guests with a private showing of your favorite movie or game on a giant 10-foot projection screen in your own private theater fitted with advanced surround sound and tiered leather seating for seven -- creating the ultimate place for the pampered movie buff! A half bath and direct access from the two-car attached garage completes this level.
