The custom-built home features 10-foot ceilings, spacious rooms, family-friendly layout and exquisite millwork. The soaring, 2-story entry way features double front doors, elegant marble floor and a grand staircase. There are 5 fireplaces, 5 ensuite bedrooms including a master suite with his and her bathrooms and a large, 1-bdrm guest/in-law/au pair suite with private entrance on the first floor. A renovated, sunny cook's kitchen is directly adjacent to a spacious family room with fireplace. A stylish libray/office competes the primary living spaces on the first flow. Up the grand staircase, the 2nd level features 3 bedrooms with bath, the Master Suite and an enormous bonus room that the kids will quickly claim for their own. The 3rd floor has two large bedrooms and a full bath. The walk-out lower level is a large, bright open space of fitness and entertainment centers and bar. There is a 4-car garage for all the family vehicles. The 5-acre property has been approved by the Land Trust for a 2-acre donation that yields a substantial tax deduction over 6 years for the new owner. Details available from Listing Agent.
