Exuding casual elegance, this stunning Estate sits on over 2.2 manicured acres with an original 1920’s stone cottage. Boasting Historic charm, the original structure seamlessly adjoins the newly constructed main residence which is marked by incredible decorator selections throughout. Designed with entertaining in mind, the main house was built in 2017 offering a functional floor plan with a spacious kitchen open to the family room. Ten foot ceilings are located on both the main and upper levels, with 12 foot coffered ceilings in the main living space. This graciously sized room is accented by a large wall of built-ins which flank a gas log fireplace, as well as a casual dining area. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with professional grade appliances including a 6 eye gas Wolf stovetop, double wall ovens, & a full size Sub Zero refrigerator & freezer with a center glass front Wine Cooler. A large island is great for everyday bar seating & offers an additional prep sink, while the walk-in pantry features a coffee station & wood shelving for overflow storage. A mud room & office are located just off of the kitchen & are accented by brick floors laid in a herringbone pattern & offer 4 built in lockers & storage cabinets. Custom cabinets, filing drawers & a desk adorn the beautifully designed office space. The graciously sized owner’s suite is located on the main level and features vaulted shiplap ceilings & opens into a gorgeous bathroom with two vanities with marble countertops, soaking tub & a large shower with three shower heads. A walk-in closet boasts a storage island & mirrored, hidden shoe shelving. A secondary laundry room is accessed from this closet which has both a utility sink & custom drying racks.

Also located on the upper level is a large flex space & the main laundry room with granite countertops, storage closets, utility sink & a working desk. A beautiful pecky cypress ceiling allows for the visual transition from the kitchen to the formal dining room, which beautifully connects the home to the Historic stone cottage. The stone wall from the original structure is the transitional focus in the vaulted dining room. Iron clad floor to ceiling windows offer an abundance of natural light, with the opposing wall providing access to the rear yard and stone patio. The vaulted ceilings with cypress beams adjoins the old structure with the new home, & provide a seamless flow between the two. The original stone structure has vaulted ceilings on the main level with a spacious great room, anchored by a stone surround, wood burning fireplace, private guest suite with sitting room, powder room & scullery.
