Exuding stately glamour, this Napoleon III-style grande dame originally built in 1710 has been gloriously reinterpreted by its current owners to integrate today’s luxury appointments with its original period identity. Approached by a circular driveway, the welcoming wraparound porch surrounded by ambrosial landscaping lends an air of gracious gentility. Carefully considered, the 8,077 square foot floor plan encompasses both formal and informal spaces with six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, plus two powder rooms and eight fireplaces. Character abounds in the exquisitely renovated gourmet kitchen and adjoining family room. While maintaining the original wood beams in the ceiling, original fireplace and wide plank flooring, the kitchen with marble and stainless-steel countertops also displays high-end appliances such as Viking, Traulsen, SubZero and Fisher & Paykel. Adjoining the kitchen, the family room is also highlighted by its original timber beamed- ceiling and fireplace. Perfect for entertaining, French doors across the southern exposure lead to the stone patio with dining and seating areas, an outdoor fireplace and built-in grill overlooking the pool. The handsome formal dining and living rooms, both with fireplaces, open to the porch and to a butler’s pantry with wet bar and wine refrigerator. Off the foyer is a chic sitting room with fireplace, an airy office with built-ins and two powder rooms. A breezeway connects the generously sized mudroom to the two-car garage. On the second floor, the owner’s suite with fireplace overlooks the verdant lawn and features a refulgent marble bathroom with soaking tub. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor and two more bedrooms on the third floor. The walkout lower level offers a sauna, full bathroom, exercise room, playroom, laundry, and future wine cellar space. Connected via a walkway from the second floor is a spacious additional family room above the garage. An entertainment haven, this spectacular room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, wet bar and full bathroom. Replete with character, this home satisfies any longings to live in a sophisticated, 18th-century jewel box while fully embracing the best of modern living just steps to Greenwich Avenue, houses of worship and schools.
