Steeped in history, on 12+ rolling acres in the prime Jericho Valley, this stunning home & property have been totally transformed with careful attention to detail, quality construction, impeccable taste, & use of only the finest materials. Down a long, gated driveway, the main home on this fine estate has 6 en-suite bedrooms including a private 1st floor main bedroom suite. The property offers a detached bank barn/garage building w/potential for a 2-bedroom guest apartment, heated pool & spa, stone spring house, spring-fed pond, extensive landscaping and hardscaping, expanded septic system, and sweeping lawn and vistas. A fine architect, builder, landscape designer, and others have had their talented hands in the many improvements. The main house (Circa 1720), was completely reimagined in 2013-2015, has exterior finish of stone, plaster, & Hardie plank, a cedar roof, & Marvin windows & doors. While maintaining its vintage features, the home is finished in a sophisticated modern style w/focus on its inherent natural features- original pointed exposed stone, plaster, & newer ship lap walls, rustic walnut & pine board flooring, 6 wood fireplaces (5 w/gas starters), & vintage beam & truss detailing. Even the original restored well with up-lighting greets you as you approach the front door! The entrance hallway showcases a simple slatted staircase along a pointed stone wall, w/vistas through a solarium/gallery to the outdoors. Oversized pocket doors recess completely, allowing indoor/outdoor living & access to the terrace w/stone fireplace, & pool & spa beyond. A long gallery is flanked with lighted glass wine storage cupboards, leading to the main wine cellar which is center stage. The handsome dining room w/fireplace is nearby. A two-story great room w/stone fireplace, finished with vintage ceiling trussing and a flat screen TV, leads to an open Butler’s Pantry & the sensational cook’s kitchen. The walk-through Butler’s pantry has its own wine and beverage refrigerators & Bosch dishwasher. The cook’s kitchen, outfitted with two-tone cabinetry, features an exposed stone and quartzite backsplash, oversized center island with double thick quartzite counters, appliance shed and large pantry closet. Stainless appliances include a 6-burner Wolf range w/griddle, Subzero refrigerator & freezer, Bosch DW, Wolf wall oven, microwave & warming drawer. A separate 2nd floor suite includes a large family/media room, bedroom, full bath, laundry, & home gym -ideal for an in-law or home office suite. The 1st floor main bedroom is secluded, yet handy to the main living areas. Entering through the original keeping room w/walk-in fireplace (now a home office), the main bedroom suite includes a balcony for two, walk-through dressing closet with laundry, and charming bath with oversized shower, Ultra Bain air jet tub, and original stone walk-in fireplace. Upstairs are 4 en-suite bedrooms, each w/unique features & generous closets. Entertaining is a breeze! Just outside the kitchen is a covered loggia for dining, outdoor kitchen finished w/a built-in gas grill and Green Egg charcoal grill. The heated pool and spa were re-done in 2019 and outfitted with new pool equipment. Positioned away from the main house, a newly built bank barn/garage offers oversized & tall garage bays with a lighted cupola. On its upper floor, a potential 2-BR guest apartment is ready for finishing –windows and a French door for access are in place, plans are available, and the septic is approved. A walk down the sweeping lawn leads to the stocked pond with its own natural habitat. Some special features in the main house include radiant heat t/o the first floor and all baths, “smart house” technology including security, auto-lighting, eat, & music and pool controls, custom hardware, 3 staircases, 3 laundries, 2 powder rooms, solid wood doors, a generator, and more. This spectacular home and property are beyond description. Like no other- simply stunning!
