Pure elegance, style, superb quality, and design on one of the best roads in town and only 5 minutes to the amazing village center, Metro-North's direct train to Manhattan, and multiple parks. This classic yet modern stone and shingle Colonial home has 6 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half baths with both an open floor plan and private spaces for all. Four finished floors offer multiple work and play areas with the highest level of craftsmanship by local luxury builder Premier Homes, and designed by local noted architect, Neil Hauck. Special features are beautiful moldings and hardwood floors, French doors, 3 flexible play/media/recreation rooms, a library and a second-floor office, a private guest suite, an incredible glassed-in wine room, and a large exercise room. The stunning interior design is by local favorite Michelle Morgan Harrison. The exterior pool and landscaping were exquisitely designed by Jenny Anderson offering a private oasis. Sited on over 2 dry and private acres on the corner of a cul-de-sac, this lightly lived-in home feels brand new. Sit back and relax with a book in front of one of the 4 fireplaces or outside on the private patio. *There will be no broker or public open houses - viewings by appointment only.
