Clearly designed to entertain esteemed guests in grand style, this magnificent 1924 formal estate is lavishly practical in that regard. Soaring ten-foot ceilings, masterful use of elegant trims and repeating architectural details exude refinement, grace and continuity. The magnificent kitchen suite-comprising over 450 square feet-houses a small forest's worth of custom hardwood cabinetry, and the backsplash behind the workhorse 60' Wolf range is a jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind mosaic work of art. The sub-zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer has a full-size companion freezer and a matching forty-eight bottle, dual zone wine refrigerator. Twin Miele dishwashers are ever at the ready for a speedy cleanup. The elegant formal dining room, as one would expect, will accommodate a size-able dinner party gracefully, and the grand salon and twin solaria are perfection for lounging, mingling, hosting chamber recitals and other gatherings. Tucked away from casual view, the swimming pool, wrapped in lavish swaths of honed travertine and well-chosen landscape plantings, conjures visions of Southern Spain. On the second floor, four individual suites offer family and guests the ultimate in comfort and privacy. Wrapped in delicious seclusion, the rambling master suite comprises the entire third floor. Nine dormer windows and a skylight bathe everything in an ethereal radiance, making it all but impossible to wake up in a poor humor. The master bath is enormous with private his-and-hers toilets, and a steam shower for two.
