Property Description

Custom designed and built, gorgeous Williamsburg colonial style home on a secluded private lot across from the Seminary. Featuring a grand entry, formal living room with deep crown and chair rail moldings and a gas fireplace with designer mantel translate into a gracious and impressive home, crafted with meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship. The living room fireplace reclaimed mantel is flanked by built in bookcases and cabinets. On the wall opposite the fireplace are a wet bar and office nook hidden behind hinged doors, which blend in beautifully with the custom millwork in this elegant room. The dining room is generous enough to host large gatherings and offers custom lighted china cabinets on either side of the stately arch into the entry, as well as deep crown and chair rail moldings.Recessed into this arch between the dining room and the foyer, is a set of pocket doors built on a grand scale for an owners convenience. The dining room flows seamlessly into the kitchen and opens to the rear gardens, patios and dining pavilion under a beautiful pergola through a gorgeous French door. Off the living room is a back hall leading to a main level PRIMARY BEDROOM, full bath, walk-in closet, second hall closet and china closet. The Primary Suite can be easily closed off from the main living areas of the house by closing two doors. The main level primary bedroom can also be utilized as a large library, with a French door opening to the slate patios, dining pavilion under the pergola and rear garden. Off the dining room is a very spacious kitchen with center island and seating, with a massive pot rack to showcase a gourmet chef's selection of pots and pans. The kitchen is open to the family room with a gas fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases and cabinets as well as a separate breakfast room and solarium. The family room can be accessed through a back hall from the breezeway leading to the two-car garage. In addition to built-ins in the back hall, there is a powder room, pantry and owner's office opening to the kitchen and family room. The upper level offers three additional bedrooms and two baths. The larger bedroom or secondary PRIMARY SUITE on this level offers a private sitting room or upstairs family room, walk-in closet and owners bath. There is a door in the primary bedroom leading to an enormous space off the bedroom which offers storage, or, potentially, a private office, exercise room or artists studio. This hidden "attic" space offers unlimited possibilities for one to create a private retreat within the Primary Suite. The lower level offers grand space for childrens activities or an inventor's workshop, while still providing a great deal of storage as well as space for a relaxing game of pool or table tennis. The recreation room offers a gas fireplace and an ideal space to watch TV, play games and just relax. This space has a rough in bath and could, potentially, be reimagined into a lower level bedroom and living area. The oversized "Junk Room" and secondary storage rooms are ideal for off season decorations and clothes. To complete this very special home, there is a replica of a Williamsburg style out building intended to be a gardener's workshop or shed. With a new roof, it is ready to greet a new owner with built in shelves and counters. The extensive gardens in the back of the house are backlit by exterior lighting and augmented by two wall fountains. All of the exterior lighting and the fountains are in working order but not guaranteed. The grounds have been professionally designed and meticulously maintained over the years and offer an inground irrigation system to assist with maintaining them year round.
