A smaller, more intimate adjacent parlor features a fireplace, wet bar and shares the spectacular views; this opens to the master bedroom with fireplace and private deck, en suite spa/bath, dedicated laundry and spacious walk in closet.

Beyond this comfortable gathering area are a pantry room with additional refrigerator, laundry room with utility sink, den/media room with sound system, spacious mudroom with window seats and custom storage cabinetry and access to the attached, double-bay garage. There is a hall with lit display and custom cabinetry and a powder room with inlay floor detail.
2nd Floor: A graceful curved stairway winds from the living room to the second floor landing and balcony. Four en suite bedrooms all feature stunning views and are beautifully appointed, with custom detailing, luxurious, wall-to-wall carpeting and marble/limestone baths. There is access to the second floor from a second stairway, which arrives at a spacious landing and storage filled hallway.
3rd Floor:
Other Structures: A charming gatehouse frames the entrance to the property, with a security gate and two-bedroom apartment.
