The spectacular entertaining rooms all have grand scale and soaring ceilings. There are six working fireplaces, hardwood floors, double-hung windows, glass door transoms and many more historic architectural details throughout.As you enter the palatial residence from the original colonnaded wrap-around porch, you are greeted by an elegant foyer / gallery that is flanked by a corner living room and formal dining room with a bay window +GG both are enormous and have wood-burning fireplaces. A corner home office, powder room and walk-in coat closet are also off the foyer / gallery. The gourmet eat-in kitchen was custom designed and features marble countertops, a large center island, a peninsula bar with seating, an abundance of storage, two sinks, a pantry, a built-in desk area, and top-of-the-line appliances including a Subzero refrigerator and freezer, a Miele dishwasher, two Wolfe wall ovens, and a Wolfe six-burner gas range.

A breakfast area, separate walk-in dry bar, back staircase down to the lower level and access to the porch through French doors complete this room. Up the stately staircase from the foyer / gallery to the second level you will find the primary bedroom that was originally two rooms and is now a luxurious corner suite that has a wood-burning fireplace, two walk-in closets, a dressing room, and two separate points of access to the terrace overlooking the luscious grounds. The renovated primary bathroom features a double vanity, walk-in shower, soaking tub, and ample storage.
