Thoughtfully designed custom built English Manor home situated on a private 5.3 acre lot at end of quiet cul-de-sac with magnificent views out every floor-to-ceiling window. Major renovation in 2010 includes chef's kitchen featured in ''Sophisticated Living'' magazine. Large screened porch overlooks beautiful pool. Nothing average or conventional here. This distinctive home, just eight miles from downtown, yet nestled in some of the most picturesque and private surroundings available in the city, is life affirming on a daily basis. Price based upon professional appraisal. Don't miss this home!Extraordinary use of natural light via generous glass doors, skylights, and windows make every day easier to enjoy. The windows work both ways so you'll be able to see nature at its best. Nine and ten-foot ceilings throughout plus vaulted ceiling in living room with custom cabinetry, specially lit artwork wall, and dramatic floor-to-ceiling fieldstone chimney with Renaissance Rumford 1500 zero-clearance fireplace. Entertaining here is easy given the feast-for-the-eyes both inside and out.

Beautiful hardwood floors refinished in 2010.

Well-appointed first floor master suite with dressing room containing five double closets, two built in chests, and lots of extra storage space above closets.

Whirlpool tub, walk-in shower, tall vanities in master bath.

Bedroom adjacent to first floor master could be used as master sitting room.

Likely the most used part of the house is its completely remodeled chef's kitchen and hearth room with innovative use of gorgeous reclaimed hardwood countertops and barnwood siding combined with natural-feeling textured granite countertops. Tall, elegantly windowed shaker cabinets mixed with shiplap ceiling and subway tile backsplash. Hearth room also has shiplap and custom cabinets with built-in desk, drawers, and "tech-garage" where you can hide your printers, scanners, and supplies while they remain conveniently accessible. This space is kept cozy with a gas-log fireplace custom built from reclaimed bricks. Appliances installed in 2010: Wolf double ovens, 6-burner stove, and warming drawer, SubZero stainless fridge/freezer and additional 2-drawer fridge (great for salad fixins, fruit, and kids drinks), Miele super-quiet dishwasher, and KitchenAid 2-drawer dishwasher (to help manage larger events).
