Property Description

This impressive home on a private cul-de-sac is situated behind wrought iron gates that open to 1.4 acres. Positioned with views of Gorham’s Pond, Rings End Bridge and beyond, this European country home exudes character, elegance and quality in every fine detail. The original house was transformed into a first floor master suite that includes an immense bedroom with grand fireplace and millwork, sitting room, screened in porch, master bath with separate water closets. The 6,000+ SF addition in 2004 creates 8,200 SF of extraordinary design with 10’ high ceilings, 5 car garages, 6 en-suite bedrooms (first and second floor masters), 4 half baths, 5 fireplaces, 2 screened in porches, sleeping porch, 2 balconies, gym, multiple sitting areas, offices and workshop spaces. An additional 1,500 SF finished basement has 9’6” ceilings with limestone flooring and double sided stone fireplace. A stunning wine cellar beckons one to sit and appreciate the ambiance. Each room is an experience. Radiant floor heat through the kitchen, with panoramic water views from the dining turret. Dramatic details combine antique and contemporary style. Enjoy the benefit of being securely elevated and above street level while watching the daytime activities along the roads below. Sunrise views are striking. Nighttime vision is picturesque with the neighboring estates’ lighting features reflecting off Gorham’s Pond. This home is purely awe inspiring. Agent related.
